Getting into the Christmas Spirit

I am a complete sucker for Christmas. Seriously, I just can’t get enough of it. And I am SO excited that my little girl, who has just turned 2, is now just about old enough to start to “get” Christmas a little. We have been reading Christmas books for at least a month now (on her request), and have to stop at the Christmas tree sale lots on a daily basis to look at all the trees. She even saw Santa on the ferry from Southampton to Hythe this past weekend, which made her day.

So as much as I have adored Christmas up until now, seeing it through the eyes of a small child, and being able to help create that magic, is really incredibly special. I can’t wait to start building our own family Christmas rituals – the hand sewn advent wall calendar I made last year that has a little felt ornament each day to hang on the linen Christmas tree; going to choose our family Christmas tree (the biggest one we can find, obviously); and of course,  cooking up an absolute Christmas storm.

There is nothing that stirs the Christmas spirit than the smell of home cooking, and what better to bake with your little ones than a beautiful gingerbread house they can help decorate too?
