The Me & Mine Project – November 2016

The Me & Mine Project  – November 2016

I am linking up again with the fantastic Me & Mine Project this month. I love that we have a monthly family photo because of this, although this month I left it way too late with everything going on, and we ended up with the tripod in the living room. It was getting near to the kids bedtime and it was a struggle but we got a couple of half decent photos – I think if everyone is looking the same way it is nothing short of a miracle.

This month has been as hectic as ever. With Christmas fast approaching, there have been Nativity costumes to buy, lines and song words to learn, and Ollie’s 4th birthday to start planning.

With the clocks going back an hour, the change has really affected the kids – we had a good couple of weeks of 5am wake ups and as a result very tired children in the evenings. Add to that Mason cutting all 4 canine teeth at once, and a recurrence of Ollie’s night terrors, its been a funny old month.

We went for a family photo shoot at the beginning of the month – it was interesting to see the images that they got of us – they were fab, but very different to my style. I’m excited to pick them up in the New Year! The kids have also made and sent off their Operation Christmas Child Boxes – something I love doing with them, and something I remember doing with them as a child.

I’m so excited for the next month – especially for some quiet family time during the christmas period – I’ve been trying to schedule in all the stuff we need to do at the beginning of December, as i know the kids get tired near to the end of term – I’m especially excited for a Santa Visit and Ice-skating, and also for Ell and the kids to have some well deserved time off.

Anyway without further ado, here are our Me & Mine Photos for November….

    I am really excited for next month too – can't quite believe it is almost the end of the year! Lovely photos, I think the next few months will be of us on the sofa too – far too cold to be outside! xx #MeandMine

    What gorgeous family captures. We do the same try to do all the Christmas festive celebrations at the beginning of the month so by Christmas week and end of term the kids and us can chill out. It's too hard and stressful if we leave it too late. I love the week between xmas and NY too we mostly sit around playing games and just spending time together. Wish you happy holidays #meandmineproject

    I love December too – it's lovely to enjoy the run up to Christmas! O is so tired already and definitely ready for a break without doing an awful lot. Christmas is great for that, I think! x #meandmineproject
