This weekend we were doing one of our family traditions, which I think was supposed to be number 24 on the ShareAdvent event, but I have another family tradition that I am going to share on the 24th as well.
Every year we go to our local Christmas Tree Farm to purchase our tree. It is a welly boot affair with lots of running around and looking at inappropriate sized trees.
It is great fun and the kids love it. They usually want to buy the 10foot tree that wouldn't even fit in our front garden, I am then baddy Mummy who has to bring them back down to earth about the size of tree we can actually fit in our front room.
It's such a great afternoon out and the children then spend the rest of the day decorating the tree, or rather, decorating the bottom half of the tree.
This year it was timed with the film Elf being on the television, have you seen it?
If you haven't you HAVE to watch it. It is my all my time favourite Christmas film, and I think is number 17 on the ShareAdvent event. If you do nothing else on the list, watch Elf!


  1. yes i agree, elf is a great movie. we have a copy that is watched frequently this time of year. your tree looks beautiful. i think next year we may have to go searching for a real one too. nice to meet you. xo

    1. I would highly recommend a real tree, I know that you can get really good 'fakes' these days but there is something about a real one :)
