1st of December 2015

Happy 1st of December and Happy 1st day of Summer! What an exciting time of year! My most favourite time of year! We have a very busy, fun and exciting month coming up and today we started the party and we celebrated hard! 

Like most days our morning started early and in darkness at 4.30am! Lucky for us Daddy was still home so we got to spend a bit of time with him before he left for work. As the sun started to rise I knew it was the perfect time to put on the Christmas carols and give our baby boy his December box! 

A special little box with a few little pieces to kick of the festive season! 

A pair of Christmas pyjamas to keep us warm and snug at night while we dream of bright red noses on reindeers, twinkling lights on Christmas trees and red rosey cheeks on Santa Clause.

A little red Santa Clause drink bottle to keep us hydrated throughout the day during our super hot summer! 

A special book about the story of Christmas. A book that we can read together each night as a family and teach our son about the birth of Jesus. 

A little fun shape sorter activity to keep our little minds busy and active throughout the season! This is one of our boys favourite games to play and I knew that it would be a fun part of the December box! 

As soon as he saw the box he went straight for the drink bottle (mummy fail: I should have pre filled it with water) and then grabbed the book! We sat together and read the book and looked at all the pretty pictures! 

He then moved on to the shape sorter and this kept him busy for the rest of the morning. He seriously has the most amazing concentration and loves this activity! It will keep him occupied for such a long time. I'm glad I added this little extra game to our box. I know December will bring lots of family dinners, birthday parties and festive gatherings and this little beauty will be coming with us so H always has something to keep him busy and happy! 

Summer has hit and summer has hit hard! Our days are very hot and muggy already! We spent the first offical day of summer swimming and playing in the pool! My favourite time spent is with my boy in the water! We are so lucky to have a little water boy! Our pool, the beach, swimming lessons, he loves it all! Thank goodness we can cool off in our own backyard! 

3 cheers for December and 3 cheers for Summer! I have a feeling it's going to be an amazing month! 

'Tis the season to the jolly fa la la la la la la la la' 

Peace, Hope and Faith
