Christmasy

It's the 3rd of December, I have 7 weeks left (according to the doctors) to give birth.
 My only complaint which has been ongoing throughout these 8 months now is tiredness and my pelvis hurting and it's still my only real complaint!  However, that ain't keeping me back from celebrating Christmas- the birth of Jesus our Lord!

It is my favourite season - even if here the cold is minimal and coats haven't been brought out yet- the decorations, the baking, the presents and the feast in itself.  In fact my idea is to bring up my son looking at it as a celebration of the Jesus' birth as it should be and not of Santa and presents.  That will just be an extra bonus :)

We have lots of activities planned- visiting cribs, watching caroling and puppet shows, seeing the lights lighting up our capital city at night.  It is all simply wonderful and been dreamy about it for over a month already.  Now that December actually started, I have already my decos, presents etc in place, as well as half the baking done....but the tiredness is a killer, after just mixing the mince filling and putting it in jars I feel awful!  However, with the baby kicking unendingly and wondering if it will ever tire of doing so, I let myself dream of this spectacular Christmas even if I know that normally the higher the expectations the lower the results.

I hope you are all gearing up in your Christmas Spirit and may the real spirit be present to guide you along the way.

Blessings

Hi Melissa!

Glad to hear you are still doing fairly well with your pregnancy. Can't wait to 'meet' your new wee one via photos upon arrival! :)

I'm really enjoying this seasons preparations for Christmas because we'll be spending the holiday at home rather than travelling. Will be so nice to have family come to us.

Cheers!
