Spencer’s first Christmas…

Christmas is by far my favourite time of the year. I really am one of those annoying OTT Christmas fans! I think it’s thanks to my OTT Mum for always making Christmas so magical and special. Even now we have the same tradition where we have a Christmas baking day and bake lots of yummy Christmassy goodies like Florentines, mince pies and sausage rolls. This year however we just haven’t had the time!!! There’s always after Christmas though ;). We also have Boxing Day where we watch the races and eat lots of yummy buffet food (my mum always puts on a good spread). 

Anyway, now Spencer is in our lives we get to become even more excited and crazy about Christmas!! I can’t wait for him to be old enough to understand it all. Leaving the reindeers carrots out and Santa’s mince pie and not forgetting Santa’s foot steps around the house 😉 

For the meantime, I am trying to keep myself controlled this year and save it all for when he’s a little older. As it is his first Christmas of course it has to be special still! I thought I would share with you all a few things I have done this year for Spencer’s first special Christmas.

Personalised Christmas Cards:

I have never sent these out before but seen as it is Spencer’s first Christmas this is a must! Here is the cards I sent out to family and close friends this year…

Christmas keepsake decoration:

I went to a pottery painting session and made this handprint bauble for the tree with ‘Spencer’s first Christmas’ written on the back 

Christmas photoshoot:

As you would have seen from my previous blog we had a special Christmas photoshoot to capture some magical Christmas pics of Spencer.

Christmas Eve PJs:

Spencer has his Santa PJs ready to wear Christmas Eve to wake up in Christmas morning

Christmas Eve sack:

Spencer is very lucky his Auntie made him this for his first Christmas. I have been very good and not peaked inside yet so I can’t tell you what’s in there! Except we were allowed to open one gift, personalised slippers!

Presents from Spencer:

I have found this part very exciting this year. I have loved being able to get gifts for the grandparents, Aunties and Daddy from Spencer this year. 

Spencer is truly spoilt from all family and friends and therefore I have only actually bought him one gift from myself and Daddy… although this has been so hard not to spoil him!! I just know we wouldn’t have the space nor does he need anything else with the amount family have got him! (Not to mention his birthday in 3 weeks!) There we have it, a list of things I have done so far this Christmas to make Spencer’s first Christmas that little bit extra special. 

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

  1. We have only bought Piglet one present for his first xmas too as we just know everyone else will go overboard and treat him! I love the little bauble you made – such a lovely idea. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday
