I hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmastime and that you have been able to enjoy some special time with your loved ones. What’s more I hope that you have been able to capture all of those magical memories and share them with us at #happylittlebuttons ! ;0)
I love co-hosting our #happylittlebuttons Instagram community, but I have to say that hosting through December has been incredible, and seeing all of your brilliant festive posts really helped me to get my jingle on throughout the month. Picking my favourites was even harder than usual this month as I am quite possibly 95% elf so all of the things with glitter and sparkle were an immediate winner for me. Here’s my round up of four friendship inspired snaps that truly captured the spirit of Christmas with little ones for me:
@soppymum shared an enchanting pic of her little one having a little one to one time with an elf of his own. There’s just something so simple yet magical about this picture and you can see how pleased Arthur is to have found a new friend:
Sat with an elf waiting for Father Christmas. More pictures later when I check the proper camera! Arthur didn’t want to sit with all the other children and made an elf friend instead! #meetingsanta #elffriend #christmasmagic
Jenny – @midwifeandlife shared this picture of her little festive cutie complete with cheeky smile and twinkle of excitement in her eyes. I love that she is sat so happily with her friendly Christmas buddies.

@topfivemum shared what I can only describe as two of the cutest little puddings you could ever wish for, and I chuckled to myself at the narrative that goes with the picture so perfectly too:
Laura – @twolittlepiggles gave us this stunning capture of her little one sat with a lovely collection of festive furry friends. The flash of red really gives the picture such a stylish and christmassy feel:

Onto my lovely co-hosts and their shares now and my first is by Annette – @3littlebuttonsblog. There is nothing more magical than a capture of those magical moments meeting the Big Man himself and this one gave me all the festive warm and fuzzies:
And last but certainly not least – Nicola – @mrslighty1504 shared this gorgeous moment as her little man is lifted up to place the star on the top of the tree. I loved her post on “How To Put Up Your Christmas Tree With A Toddler” post earlier in December and so this one really made me smile when I saw it:
Hands up who else has been fretting for months on end about the safety of their Christmas tree with their toddler around?! Well, if you’re putting up your Christmas tree this weekend with a little person in tow, there’s a, erm, handy guide on how to ensure your Christmas tree survives the toddler onslaught on the blog right now!
