the most wonderful time of the year

music credit: Little Things Mean A Lot by Little Shoes Big Voice

Last year was definitely the year I fell in love with video.
And I had a permanent smile glued to my face
as I edited this together.
Video captured special moments that would be so easily forgotten;
the minute details of Christmas Day for my little family.

We had a lovely Christmas.
A simple Christmas.
We were all very lucky to find lovely gifts under the tree,
but then,
we are all pretty lucky, presents or not.

So many unforgettable moments from our 2013 Christmas;
the wonder on the children's faces,
the pride at my husband's first Christmas dinner,
the beautiful boy saying "wow, what did you do?" when he saw the presents,
the beautiful girl soaking up the excitement and dancing throughout the day;
the magic of it all.

  1. Simple Christmas times are the best and yours looked like it was lovely. I am glad they are enjoying their kitchen, it was by far the best pressie we ever got Mads! Mads watched this video with me and said two things 'I want to go to BB's house' and 'We have the ladybird book.' There we are then. ;) x

  3. Love this video! Always like your music choices too! What book are you reading, the pop up one? Looks fantastic! We love sharing a shell and what the ladybird heard in this house! Hope you all enjoy them. Although my little man gets very upset in sharing a shell when the sea stars are unhappy with the situation and we have to feverishly read until they are happy again on the very back page! Love it!

    1. Ahhh, thank-you. Picking the right music is often the hardest part.
      The book we're reading is The Night Before Christmas by Robert Sabuda. It's the most gorgeous book ever, a special one for Christmas Eve bedtime each year. x

    1. Thank-you. I'm so lucky that they get along so well together. Our little lady loves a dance, she does it a lot, but especially when cuddling her dolls, she looks like a mini mama.
      I'm so glad I'm recording more video now, it's already great watching some back from earlier last year. x
