Wasn’t going to bother with a tree this year as we visited family for Christmas Day and Boxing Day, but I’m glad we did!! I love how warm my living room feels when the tree is lit up at night.
We got our daughter, Aeryn, a special ‘My First Christmas’ tree stocking – something else I will end up keeping #hoarderalert!!!
For Christmas this year, I thought I would try and do small gifts that were homemade. It turned out to be bought gifts given in homemade wrapping though. The stockings I’ve put up are the finished products. Quite pleased with them, even if they are not as robust as I would have liked – given with the instruction that they are for show!!
I found the pattern for the crochet christmas trees here – really helpful instructions to follow from The Royal Sisters.
I gave the stockings to adults that I bought for this year, and I wrapped the children’s presents up in a way that I think matches.
I’m quite pleased with how they turned out – I started off trying to save money, which I don’t think I achieved, but all were well received.
I also tried to get a little creative for Aeryn’s first Christmas. We did a ‘Christmas Eve Box’ that had her christmas PJs, A christmas book, her first stocking, and a novelty key for Santa, in.
And Aeryn was left this letter behind from ‘Santa’.
(excuse spelling mistakes in the letter)
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year too!!
