// Mama smiles // We took our boys to see this Willow House Christmas lights - a family decorate their place like crazy every year πŸŽ„πŸ’‘βœ¨πŸŒŸπŸ’« I think they raised circa Β£18,000 for charity last year πŸ€—πŸ€© It was freezing cold ❄️ but worth it :) Selfie 🀳 with @three_blue_and_a_pink because we’re not usually in front of the camera πŸ“· #happydays.... Making time for family and fun is so good for refuelling and filling up your spirit πŸ˜€πŸ™πŸΌ

Another go at the crafts for the one! He made a card for his (very hungover πŸ™„) Daddy today. And I think he must have been quite proud of it since he carried it all the way home to give it to him. 🏑
This is our third last playgroup before Christmas and the holidays and the end of the year! How did 2017 happen so fast!?!
And I’m actually quite surprised that I have stuck it out with these two groups, and that I actually enjoy them πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ
I’m also proud that I’ve pushed myself to go, and not just to one, but to a few different ones.
Sean seems to really like going! And I think he’s benefiting from the change of scenery and from the different activities on offer. Such as the crafts πŸ˜‰
I’m hoping this will help slightly for when he goes to nursery in the summer 🀞🏻 .

This little lady turned 3 today. The giant β€˜3’ balloon didn’t happen thanks to some crazy weather ❄️ but we managed to see the big man himself πŸŽ…πŸΌ who even sang Happy Birthday to her. A belly full of chocolate cake and now cwtched up on the settee. I’d say she’s had a lovely day. Happy birthday our beautiful Daisy πŸ’› #daisycariad .

How has another month flown by before our eyes? You’re 4 months old now little bear and I feel as if day by day I watch you develop before my eyes. You’ve finally figured out how to move your hands to grab things you can see although letting is go is still a taskπŸ™ˆ you’re still a milk lover and always stare longingly at everyone who eats around you. You only wake once during the night now and Mummy couldn’t thank you enough for itπŸ™Œ you’ve started to giggle at us when we say things in a silly voice and boy does that giggle melt my heart.
I honestly couldn’t ask for a happier, more smiley, content baby. Oh Ewan you do make my heart full β€οΈπŸ’™

This lad won ChristmasπŸŽ…πŸ». Not alone was he reunited with his absolute favourite Christmas hat that wasn't in the Christmas clothes box when we took it out of the attic but hidden among decorations that came out of the attic yesterday BUT he also got to put the star on the tree. Sort of by conning his sister into thinking that the fairy was much more important and her agreeing that she would put it up, not realising that it doesn't go on the top. But it's a fairy so she's happy. He's also wearing his Christmas onesie. And sitting on Daddy's shoulders. Christmas spirit found βœ”οΈ Hohoho βœ”οΈ πŸŽ…πŸ»πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ»πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ»

We had a quite adventurous day today. Not going into too much detail but it started off with a lovely Irish breakfast and then it was off to Matthews last football training of the year. He got sweets at the end which he shared with his sister. Dramatically over the lunch time we head to go to out of hours doctor then. Fun fun...not! On top of that hubbys weekend away in Germany ended up him being stranded for the night as it's snowing like crazy over there and they couldn't depart. Now they're hoping to make it back tomorrow morning. DISASTER! At least both kids asleep for now and I an wrecked too. πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

Started the day off with a broken ornament. Which I guess is what I get for trying to stay in bed while the boys where downstairs! πŸ›οΈ πŸ™„
Spent most of the day telling Sean to put baubles back on the tree, then putting them back myself because I have no control over my toddler and he does whatever he wants. 😩😐
But on a more positive note, I finished all my online Christmas shopping. So, pretty much all done 🎁
And if you look at my stories you will see that I inflicted more glitter on myself in the name of gift tags and child entertainment. ✨ ✨
Now that shopping is out of the way I can start getting ready for our holiday away to Lewis. And start praying that it stops snowing for us getting there β„οΈπŸ™πŸ» .

Christmas has come to the Gordon-Borman household πŸŽ„ πŸŽ…πŸ» ❄️ The boys have been desperate to put the tree up but I’m a bit bah-humbug about putting it up too early πŸ˜’
Well I say boys, I mean Ben. Sean’s just been loving the lights the neighbours have up. Although today he was admiring the trees in the shop and was on a constant β€˜tree.up’ loop when we got home. 😍
And I managed to just sit back and let the boys decorate the tree in whatever way they wanted. I’ve of course moved most of them since they’ve gone to bed. I’ve not got that much control!
Speaking of bed. Iain decided that after his success with putting Sean to bed the other night while I was at the school disco with Ben that he’d have another go tonight. 😐 omg, Sean was not impressed with this. I felt so bad! I still feel bad πŸ˜‚ it’s not like he was abandoned to cry by himself but it’s hard when I know I could have just gone in and made it all better. But I would like Iain to be able to help a bit more at bedtime so I just had to busy myself with the decorations.
I’m sure I’ll be seeing Sean in the middle of the night (😐😴) so can give him a big cuddle then! .
