I am back with another lovely blogger who is taking part in my Christmas series. Who is getting excited for Christmas? I know we are…
This week it’s the lovely Natalie from Meme and Harri. Natalie has two gorgeous girls who remind me a lot of my two girls. Plus she is about to give birth any day now with her third baby and I can’t wait to see what she is going to have to complete her family.
Over to Natalie with her answers to my Christmas questions…
1 – What is your favourite Christmas movie?
Oh it’s a tough one but I think it has to be Home Alone: Lost in New York but I do also love Family Guy with Nicolas Cage (although I am guilty of watching this one all year around!)
2 – What is your favourite Christmas song?
The Pogues – Fairytale of New York without a doubt. I am one of those annoying people who like to start playing Christmas songs in November.
3 – Do you have any family traditions that you would like to share with us?
4 – What is your favourite childhood memory of Christmas?
One of my favourite memories is every Christmas my Mum and Dad would have to wake me and my sisters up in the morning as we used to always sleep in and my Dad was too excited to wait any longer – they always complained we were the only children in the world that needed waking on Christmas morning. I do actually think Christmas is even more exciting now I am a parent.
5 – How will you be spending Christmas Day?
We spend Christmas morning at home and then spend a hour visiting my husbands parents before driving the 40 minute journey to Liverpool to my parents for Christmas dinner where all my sisters and nieces and nephews are, it gets a little chaotic but I wouldn’t have it any other way. We stay the night here which allows us to have a drink and relax with my rather large family!!
6 – Do you have any exciting plans leading up to Christmas?
7 – What are you hoping Father Christmas will bring you?
8 – If you found some hidden presents, would you peek?
Hmmmm I would try not to but I would be tempted! My husband is fab at presents and I always have lots of surprises on Christmas morning.
9 – What has been your highlight of 2016?
It has been a challenging year but the highlight has to be my final baby being due. Meme settling into year one, Harri coming into herself and all the lovely new friends I have made.
10 – Do you make new year resolutions? Have you made any for 2017?
