Me & Mine {December}


Me & Mine Dec

I’m so glad that we actually managed a photo of us all from Christmas Day; I wasn’t sure it would happen as it was a really busy one and Lucas wasn’t very well so I’m really happy with these. They were taken at my mums just before the whole family descended and we had a quiet moment to open some presents. Christmas wasn’t quite as magical as we had hoped with Lucas not being well but I think we made the best of it and kept going for the twins first birthday on the 27th. Now we are completely ready to welcome 2015 and put the poorly month of December behind us!

I’ve only just joined in with the last few months of Me & Mine 2014 so I am looking forward to starting fresh in the New Year and having a whole years worth of photos to look back on. I can already see a massive difference between October’s portrait and this one and it will be amazing to look back on this one next Christmas and see how much my boys have changed. Thank you to the lovely Dear Beautiful for hosting, her Christmassy photos are beautiful so go and have a look.

Tonight me and the husband are having a quiet night in and once the kids are in bed we will be getting all cosy with a Chinese takeaway, good films and a bottle of fizz. Hope you have a good night however you are welcoming the New Year and, as always, thank you for reading!

  1. Awww, I’m sorry Lucas was poorly over Christmas, it seems like some is always ill this end too (it was the hubby’s turn to sniff through Christmas this year) but I’m glad it didn’t spoil the day too much. They are both cute photos of you and your gorgeous boys, I’ll look forward to seeing more next year. x

  2. Aww so many little ones seem to have been ill this christmas. A close friend was in our local childrens hospital on christmas night. Your photo is beautiful and you all look full of the christmas cheer. I look forward to joining in every week from next month x

  3. Oh your photos are gorgeous! What a beautiful family you have, you all look so happy! One of my blogging highlights from this year is finding your blog to read, so honest, so refreshing and just lovely. Thanks for writing. Happy New Year x

  4. Boo to Lucas being poorly over Christmas but on another note I can’t believe your little beauties are one! You have such a gorgeous family Hayley and I absolutely adore reading your blog and your adventures. It’s been so long now! I love your December photo and you must ooze with pride when you look at photos of you all! Happy New Year to you and your little family. xx

    • Thank you so much Katie, that means so much to me! I can’t quite believe I’ve kept up with blogging like I have but I’m hooked and I love having it all there for the boys when they are older. It’s really special to be able to capture and share moments like this xx

  5. Oh no, poor Lucas, it’s really no fun being poorly over Christmas. But your photos are lovely nonetheless and you all look so cosy together. It’s one of the things I like the best about Me and Mine shots, seeing the really subtle differences month on month, when you look back you really can see the little ones changing before your very eyes!

  6. I cannot believe those tiny babes are now a year old!!! WHERE has the last year gone!! I remember congratulating you when they were born and now they’ve just celebrated their first birthday!! Oh my goodness — time is literally flashing before my eyes!! Sorry to hear that Lucas has been poorly and December was a tricky month for you.

    All the very best for a happy and healthy 2015! Lots of love to you and yours, from me and mine xx

    • Thank you sweet, I hope you have a fantastic 2015 too. The time just seems to go quicker and quicker every year and in my mind my boys don’t looks that old, it’s only when I look at this photo I remember they aren’t my babies anymore! xx

  7. You have such a gorgeous family! I think there is something about Christmas and illness that they seem to go hand in hand, but I hope all is better now.
