Our Woodland Christmas Trees 2018 ♥

A little Christmas tradition I began I think three Christmases ago now, is our woodland Christmas tree. Last year Tyler and I went and decorated a woodland Christmas tree ourselves on Christmas Eve, but this year it was very much a family affair and it was lovely.

We went to the woods in late afternoon and found some little pine trees there. We decorated two - Jacek did one and I the other and in fairness, his tree looked a whole lot more festive than mine, I think it was the tinsel.

Beau really surprised me with just how interested he was in the trees, in decorating them, pointing things out on them and then happily standing by them for a picture. Tyler was a little reserved and seemed to want to just play in the woods instead of helping with the Christmas trees but that was fine too. I have to keep reminding myself that he's almost six now and is possibly not as interested in all of these things anymore. I'm not going to lie though, it makes me quite sad at how quickly he's grown up. It's one of the reasons why I'm glad I have all of our past memories documented on this little seasonal blog and my other blog Dolly Dowsie, so that we can always look back and see the fun times and precious moments we shared together.

I love how these pictures turned out. I love those precious few seconds of affection that I've captured of the boys. I love Tyler's little festive jumper and Beau's super adorable festive knits complete with holly. It'll be his last Christmas wearing a bonnet and I'll savour this one because it's beautiful. The set was knit by a lovely lady over on Instagram named Lesley, you can find her at @knitbylesley

It was such a lovely time in the woods decorating our woodland Christmas trees - I love that we had two this year. It really helped to get me into the festive mood, which I have to admit was somewhat lacking before this - it just didn't feel like Christmas at all.

As we're nature lovers, we packed up all the decorations and took them home with us after we had our fun and took our photos so as not to endanger any wildlife.

I love this little tradition of ours, it's one of those things that I find to be incredibly special and I'll continue to do it each Christmas as long as my children want to get involved.
