The 12 Days of Christmas round up

Hello everyone. I am here today to share a round up of Laura and my recent series, The 12 Days of Christmas.  I found it such a great way to begin the festive season and really got me excited about Christmas.  We have visited several different countries and learned more about the different traditions everyone follows around the world. I loved hearing everyone's personal stories and the lovely traditions people treasure. I, like Laura, am pondering over the traditions I would like to foster and also the value and meaning of Christmas I would like to instil in my children.  When I asked Isabella today what Christmas is all about, she replied, "It's about sharing, giving and loving each other."  Impressed!  Laura has done a beautiful job of creating a montage of each of our guest lists....

Oh it was so much fun, thank you! LM's dino dress looks so out of place with the rest of pics hahaha Glad I followed her lead though - it has already been worn gazillion times... or just about ;)
