Festive Family Fun

I cannot believe that December is almost upon us and in just a matter of weeks, the house will be brimming with family, awash with wrapping paper and happy kids all whilst the delicious smell of turkey fills my nostrils. Hands down, Christmas is the most amazing time of the year. With three little people it is even more magical and I just adore the whole season. This is the first year that the girls really have gotten involved in the excitement and build up as they really know what it’s all about.

I remember when we used to break up from school and the uncontrollable bursting excitement would be bubbling up inside me 24/7; my poor Mother having to deal with my sister and I would have been quite the challenge so she often used to get us to do little activities to pass the time as we eagerly awaited the 25th.

To help us get into the Christmas mood, we were very kindly sent an amazing hamper from the wonderful folks at Jet2Holidays.com The girls couldn’t wait to open it and quickly stumbled across a make your own Christmas scene.

My girls are completely opposite to me and just adore being all creative and making things by crafting. They just loved putting together their own Christmas scene and I think they did an amazing job and even want to take it in to show their classmates and teacher.

Me on the other hand, was more than happy to get stuck into the fudge, mince pies and shortbread that we were sent. It is the season to be jolly so no dieting will make me jolly and probably look like Santa with his round tummy come New Year! Charlie also had his eye on these mince pies. For a super fussy eater, he absolutely loves mince pies which is rather odd.


As it is the season of goodwill, they have a very special giveaway as every day from the 1st to the 26th of December, you could be in with a chance of winning an amazing Jet2holiday! All you’ve got to do is head on over to Jet2Holidays.com , and correctly answer a holiday-themed question, and you’ll be entered into the free prize draw. You can pre-register from 28th November for an extra chance each day., how ace is that?! With the weather being as freezing cold as it has been these past few weeks, that sounds like heaven right about now. Remember: you have to be in it to win it.

Disclosure: we were sent a hamper of goodies from Jet2.com in exchange for this post
