Marvelous Monday Link Party #30

Marvelous Monday Linky Party

We are now officially into December which means we can talk about all things Christmas without feeling like we are getting into the celebrations too early!  We put up our Christmas tree on the weekend and the house is now feeling like Christmas is here.  My daughter turned 3 a couple of months ago, so she is at that incredibly exciting age and I am able to live the magic through her. It’s pretty awesome.

Last year she was scared stiff of Santa and this year she can’t get enough of him.  We had an impromptu visit with Santa in the week, as she was waving to him in the local shops.  The next thing she was chatting to him and then promptly sat down next to him.  Such a contrast to last year when she screamed at the sight of him!


I think it’s going to be a fun Christmas this year.

I’m sure you will all start to have some wonderful Christmas posts and I can’t wait to see them.

Let’s also see if we can make December the biggest link party month to date.  Remember to share with all your friends and invite them to link up too.  Let’s get into the festive spirit, share the joy and really have an awesome party month.

Let’s start started for the week and look at last week’s top 3 clicked links.

    Three is such a magical age for Christmas! I am so glad she is not scared of Santa this year. My daughter did not take a liking to Santa when she was two either lol! Thank you for featuring the Apple Cider Cranberry Bread! As always, thank you for hosting and have a wonderful week!

      It’s incredibly magical Christy. I think she is so excited that she might actually pop by Christmas! It’s great that she likes Santa this year as last year was a very different experience. It’s amazing what a year can do.

      Thanks for linking up again with us this week 🙂

    Your daughter is so cute with Santa. My youngest son, 10, sadly for me, is way beyond Santa’s lap now. I can relate with the scared to death Santa moments and the “cut in the line” days he had. You are going to have a total blast this Christmas. I’ll bet she is so excited! (The best Christmas years)

    Thank you for hosting your link up. I look forward to it each week!
    I brought pine flooring this time. I’ll need to stop back during the week because I’m first…feelin’ kinda lonely and awkward without checking others out. 🙂

      Thanks Robin 🙂 There is definitely a window of opportunity for these magical Christmas’s. I’m sure it wont be long before she wont want a bar of Santa again!!

      It’s always a pleasure to have you join us Robin 🙂

    Cute photo! Most of my kids weren’t too keen on seeing Santa…so a lot of our Santa pictures aren’t very happy looking, lol.

    Thanks for hosting 🙂

      Thanks Jennifer. The last two years she was looking scared stiff in the photo. One she was actually bawling her eyes out….but it’s still a photo I love. Great memories 🙂
