A Christmas Tradition - Elliott's first Christmas tree

10:13


There is nothing like the smell of pines. I have always found real Christmas trees so much more refreshing. Waking up everyday and being able to smell pines in my home is wonderful, so of course we went and got ourselves a real tree. Elliott's first Christmas tree.

Last year we found a great farm that grew their own Christmas trees. You could go and select the one you wanted and have it cut down. The only problem we found was that it was so busy, so when we came across the loveliest little family run farm called Hadsham Farm, who grew their own trees too, we were over the moon.

When we pulled up to the farm we weren't sure if we had arrived in the right place. We parked on their drive way and out came a young man who gave us instructions on what we had to do and off we went, round the back of the farm house and into a field of traditional Christmas trees and Normand trees. A part from a mother and her two boys, we were the only other family there. It was perfect. I was so excited. Excited that we had found such a place to start this new tradition with our little Wolf. After about 15 mins of searching we finally found the perfect tree. We found the lovely man who came with his saw and he cut the tree down for us and into the back of the car it went.

We came home and got straight to decorating. Daddy and Elliott put the first Christmas decoration on the tree as I snapped a few photos. I love capturing these first moments for Elliott. This Christmas is going to be the best yet.

Thank you Hadsham Farm for making finding Elliott's first Christmas tree so easy.  We will be back next year.

The Gusters & Leachs Day Out

12:59



On a cold November morning two of the nicest families I could wish to know embark on a winters adventure, to Stowe Landscape Gardens, with me and my camera in tow. Wool hats and cosy mittens were worn, rosey cheeks were abundant and tears may have been cried. But what fun we had, running down long dirt roads, playing in the leaves, collecting nature finds and exploring the wonderful grounds of a picturesque National Trust Garden.

Oh and lets just say, we ended the adventure with hot coco in our hands. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr.

MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL!

10:26


MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL! This time of the year is one of my most favourites. Some of my fondest memories are of the lead up to Christmas and this year will be the start of great new traditions because we have Elliott Wolf with us. I can't wait to create new Christmas memories with our Wolf. In fact tomorrow we are starting our first. Tomorrow we are off to see Father Christmas with Grandpa Stocker and cousin Callum. We get to ride the steam train up and down, drink hot drinks, meet Santa for the first time and just enjoy this new tradition with Grandpa and I am certain that Nanny and Granddad Barnes will also do their own traditions with Elliott.

With that I thought I would put together a list of  Christmas things I would like to do with Elliott in the future. I do like thinking a head after all.

1. Make our own advent
2. Bake cinnamon biscuits
3. Buy our real tree
4. Make a new Christmas decoration every year
5. Dance to our favourite Christmas songs
6. Do the Banbury Christmas light drive with Daddy
7. Do a Christmas walk in Harleston Firs
8. Have a Christmas movie day with Grandpa & Nanny Stocker
9. Decorate Nanny and Granddad Barnes Christmas tree.
10. Do a shoe box of goodies for someone in need


So there you have it. 10 future Christmas plans. Oh how I can not wait.
