Beacember Advent Calendar Day #18

Yesterday, we finally put up our tree in time for Christmas! Before Beatrice, this would be an evening in with Home Alone/Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, some wine and nibbles. This year, the film was on, but no wine/nibbles! Beatrice had seen the tree minus all the decs, but got them in all their glory with the lights on this evening- she couldn’t take her eyes off of it! Occasionally she’d look in surprise to me or Lucy as if to say ‘How cool is this?’

Our tree, as is everyone’s, is full of memorable decorations – we’ve got ones from our honeymoon, our travels, and the wedding favours (one of which is pictured ). There are also a couple of ones you may recognise below.

Here is the tree in all its glory…

It’s so hard to take a decent photo on an actual camera (in about 5 minutes and without a tripod)…I daresay an iPhone would’ve smashed that, so sorry!

Today we went off to visit family for our first dose of Christmas cheer (with lots of people to meet up with, our Christmas festivities get extended, yay!). We had a great day with Nanny and Grandad, and Beatrice got to play with her cousins. She also proved to be a dab hand with opening her presents (well, she’s good at gripping stuff!), though I think we’d still be going till next Christmas if she did it all by herself! All that practice with the cushion obviously paid off…

It was a really nice day and we can’t wait for what lies ahead!

Speaking of what lies ahead…day 19 on the horizon!
