This month, I’m counting down the days until Christmas as a part of Blogmas. Just like an advent calander! Except no chocolate… I’m also offering you guys a little Christmas present. For all the days of December, I’ll be following back anyone who chooses to follow me. SO tell your friends, and let’s get our follower counts up!
Over the weekend our family finally got on top of things and put up our Christmas tree! Well, when I say our family, I mean me and my mum. My dad is in charge of getting the box down from the cupboard (which is more difficult than it sounds), then he stays away from it all. And my brother (who’s 15) has decided he’s too cool for such childish stuff like putting up the tree.
Have I mentioned my mum and I are Christmas freaks? Because we are, and it stands out.
Anyway, I took a lot of photos for you guys – and also for Snapchat, so excuse some awkward captions and bad photo quality!
Ta da, the tree! It’s the worst to do this part, because you have to individually undo each branch
You can’t see the picture on the right very well, but each can has the name of a different reindeer. And yes, they’re in the right order! The sign on the left is now set up in our garden, and the one in the middle has a bit of paper clipped to it with my extensive list of things I want
As well as the photos above, we have a few Christmas-related books. The usual Twas the Night Before Christmas, and the Twelve Days of Christmas, but also this cool thing! A Kiwi Night Before Christmas, which is basically a take on the original but with all New Zealand-y things. No reindeer, just sheep. Santa wears a singlet and gumboots and stubbies, because it’s too warm for a Santa suit! And shout out to my mum who’s holding the book for my photo
And finally, the tree! It may have taken a while, but we got there. Tinsel, lights, an angel, stupid handmade things from when we were at primary school – this tree has got it all!
What do you guys think of my tree and decorations? Have you all put yours up yet? If you’ve posted photos, send them to me! Oh, and add me on Snapchat, @victoriajaynes tee hee 😛
