I blinked and it was over. Gone.
So much effort is put in to just one day of the year. It's a shame that we don't put as much effort in to every day of the year. Honestly, Christmas does bring out the best in me. I'm more tolerant when things aren't going my way, I'm more pleasant to people in that I talk more to strangers, I give more to help people out like buskers and in general, I just feel nicer.
Here's a recap of the Jarrett Christmas 2013.
Our Santa photo was taken early this year as I was trying to be more organised:
We decorated the tree early too as the kids were excited after I bought a new pack of ornaments.
We saw The Polar Express at the local outdoor cinema:
We painted plaster Christmas ornaments:
We made Gingerbread Houses:
We made paper snowflakes:
And then, Santa came to visit:
Merry Christmas! :)
