As it's Ava's first Christmas this year one of the things that I am most looking forward to are the Christmas family traditions that are going to start taking shape. She is rather young yet to be putting out the brandy for Father Christmas and the carrot for Rudolph but we will start as we mean to go on.
She has her first advent calendar (a picture one) and we had a Christmas decoration personalised for her so that will be her special one to put on the tree every year. She has been given my old vintage Christmas sack, which was my mums before me and will maybe be her child's' one day.
Im looking forward to all of the christmassy things we will do when she's older, make Christmas biscuits, make Christmas cards, go on snowy walks. I'd like to take her to Lapland one day but we'll see.
Do you have any Christmas traditions?
