Countdown to Christmas

Firstly, I’d like to apologise for my lack of posting. As I may or not have mentioned before, we have had a lot going on at home. Now that has been resolved (successfully!), I can get back to posting about the tribulations of young children!

We are finally in the Christmas spirit in our house, and we are looking forward to our second Christmas as a family. Lenny still doesn’t really understand the whole Christmas thing, so the presents, cards and decorations will be a bewilderment to him. Especially, as at the moment, he is in love with cardboard boxes and playing with them instead! We did make some Christmas cards a couple of weeks ago, which involved finger paints, a whole lot of mess but a whole lot of fun, so that will be a nice surprise for anyone receiving one of those this year!

I guess the only main concern is the tree. I remember last year he had a fascination with it, so this year he is going to be all over it for sure. I am fully expecting to find the tree and its decorations strewn across the floor on multiple occasions before the year is out.

Another thing I’m hoping to do is to take Lenny to the park, and have a go on the Christmas train! Like most little boys, he is obsessed with trains and I know this will be a real treat for him.

Its nice to be able to finally plan for Christmas after a truly rubbish year up until this point. How is everyone else doing? How are your Christmas plans going (or not going)?
