Hello 2018 🍾

As Christmas is now over I thought I would finish 2017 with a blog talking about my most memorable moments of the past year.πŸŽ„

Christmas has been amazing, I’ve had so much fun celebrating it with family and friends and Ava’s enjoyed it so much this year! We have all been spoiled especially Ava.

is year my most proudest moment was of course watching my baby girl grow into this beautiful 2 year old toddler! I can't believe how much of a little girl she has become, it's fascinating how much she can grow in the space of 1 year. She's talking so much now, she's becoming so independent, she's so loving and caring for others she's just incredible, I still sometimes can't believe she's mine ❀️

<<<bst thing that has happened this year is definitely buying our first home. We now have our own proper family home for Ava to grow up in and to build our family memories in for years to come. There is still so much we want to do so I am excited for the new year so we can start concentrating on the house more.

<<<bwelcomed 3 beautiful boys this year. Ava has 3 more boys to have as best friends to grow up with and look after her. Watching 2 of my best friends become mothers has been so special!

<<<bw snow for the first time in 2017, which will be something I will never forget. The excitement on her face when I let her run into the garden at 7am to see the snow was just amazing. We got to build snowmen and play outside as a family, it was a white December and such a special one ❄️

Taking Ava pumpkin picking was amazing, definitely a tradition for us now to do that every year in October, and this year was more special as we got to take the boys as well and do it with our closest friends πŸŽƒ

I could go on forever but they are the main memorable moments for this year, and I cannot wait to see what 2018 brings for me, my family and friends ❀️



A White Christmas β„️

We have had the most amazing weekend….. it’s finally snowed in December! This never happens we have not had proper snow in so many years. It was especially special because Ava has never seen snow before.

I wish I would of filmed her first reaction when I took her to the window and first showed her the snow, she was amazed! It was incredible watching how excited she got, nothing makes December more special than having snow ⛄️

n't think she would like it, she's very picky and doesn't like to be messy or wet like if she drops even a drop of water on herself she makes me change her she hates it! I thought once she went outside and realised how wet and cold it is she would hate it! To my surprise she absolutely loved it and helped me and friends make snowmen, we played outside for ages. It's been amazing ❄️

It’s been extra special also because Anthony actually managed to have a day off work due to them closing because of the snow. We rarely get days off together as it is let alone in December. We went on a snowy walk around our estate and we built a snowman with my dad, it was so much fun being able to do something festive together as a family and we created some amazing memories for Ava to look back at ❀️

As winter is my all time favourite season anyway and with how much I am already obsessed with Christmas this snow was such an added bonus! However I am hoping it’s melts slightly as I have lots of places to go and people to see before December ends and driving in snow with Ava gives me lots of anxiety! πŸŽ…πŸΌ

When we first bought this house I had a vision of cuddling on the sofa and watching the snow through our French doors, I can’t believe it has actually snowed it’s been amazing πŸŽ…πŸΌ I’m just even more excited for the rest of December πŸŽ„

This December is one we will remember forever- the December Ava first saw snow ❄️

Christmas at no. 27 πŸŽ„

ITS OFFICIALLY DECEMBER!!!!!! I cannot even explain how excited I am that it’s December and Christmas is nearly here. This is my absolute favourite time of year I hate summer time I love nothing more than being cosy at home and of course decorating my house.

As this is our first Christmas in our new home I wanted to put a lot of effort into making the house up into a rustic winter grotto. I have tried to stop myself from going to crazy, I know every year I will buy new things to add to my collection!

It’s tradition for me to decorate on the 1st December. I want the whole of December to enjoy my decorations and of course for Ava to enjoy them πŸŽ„

First is the kitchen and the walk way …. I have just added little bits around the room to make it feel festive

The kitchen is still a working progress- for now it’s just little things like Christmas candles and small decorations for the table to make it feel festive!

I have also covered all of my bannisters with garlands which I am so in love with

I think for next year I will also add baubles for that extra touch but for this year I think it looks extremely festive πŸŽ…πŸΌ

For Ava’s bedroom I have again added some little details but tried not to go too crazy πŸŽ„ (anybody who knows me will know how crazy I do actually get when it comes to festive decorations)

Then for our bedroom I have bought some Christmas bedding and a new Christmassy pillow, I wanted our bedding to be a kind of rustic cabin feel – I’m so happy with the one I picked! It took me so long to pick one because Anthony doesn’t really like tartan so I thought this wouldn’t be too much for him to handle (I’m so lucky he puts up with all my house decor ideas) πŸŽ„

And then for me the best room in the house…. the living room. To my surprise this year Anthony actually went out and bought some new decorations for our side board which I love, it definitely adds a bit more of a Christmas feel β˜ƒοΈ

And then last but not least… the Christmas tree. I literally cannot describe how much I adore my tree. As I’ve wrote numerous times throughout my blogs I am obsessed with anything rustic, woodland and farmhouse style for my home and I feel like my tree represents all of those things.

This Mama Deer just cannot wait to do so many festive activities this month and share it with family and friends πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸ¦ŒπŸ»β„οΈβ€οΈ
