I have loved every moment of it. The shopping, baking, cleaning, wrapping, decorating, cooking and the sharing with family and friends.

We had some firsts as well. For the first time on Christmas Eve the Princess was too excited to go to sleep, I think it was about 1.30am. This was the first Christmas morning she woke super early, 5.30am is when she opened her stocking. This is the first Christmas she didn't 'believe'. It made me a little sad that another part of her childhood has slipped away. But in saying that, the magic of Christmas was still the same.

The Cowboy and I hosted Christmas Day for our families at the new house. Both our parents stayed on Christmas Eve which was fun, the usual pre Christmas Day cooking prep, wrapping baking into gift baskets and boxes, last minute gift wrapping, finding a present I had stashed and lost! And finally, putting all the parcels under the tree, all ready to be opened in the morning. I love it!
