{JYC 09 days 4, 5 & 6}

Had a busy old weekend here! Friday night was dinner with the crop ladies. We went to themed restaurant called Smith &Weston, which was fun! Huge portians and sparkly cowboy hats!!!! Saturday saw a bit of Christmas shopping and a belated thanksgiving dinner with friends. This year I am thankful for my health, to be in the new flat and to be pregnant. Today was a bit of tidying, putting up the Christmas tree (yay!!), movie watching and a little JYC catch up for me!

The subject of a perfect Christmas for me was an easy one. As much as I love all the christmas trimming of the tree, the music, the food and presents! My perfect christmas is getting to spend the day with K. This will be our last christmas as just me and him, then my perfect christmas will be me, K and baby! So excited!!

In regards to how I count down to christmas, well we no longer have the chocolate advent calenders I had as a child ( though my guess is that they will make a return to our household next year!) for the past few Christmas I count down to Christmas by taking part in an advent swap parcel with my crop ladies. This year so far I've had some letters, chipboard, bling!! It's good fun. My other main count down is the Christmas journal. I love the taking time out to think about a different aspect of Christmas each day!

Today we were prompted to think about christmas pasts. My childhood christmases were happy affiars. I remember the excitment, being unable to sleep, waking up early, the wrapping paper and the love for the day. I hope that next year and for years to come I will be able to bring the same excitment and joy to babys christmases. I really cannot wait for next year already!!

Apologies for the long post. Right off to cook dinner and watch x factor- who do you want in the final?
