Are you feeling jingly yet? Annette at 3 Little Buttons, Nicola at Sugar and Spice and All Things Spliced and myself have most definitely got our jingle on, mostly thanks to the incredible festive pictures that so many of you have been sharing to our #happylittlebuttons Instagram community! We have recently celebrated 2500 pics now linked with us, and as it’s the season of sharing we thought we would each share an extra special Christmassy favourite. Just one special picture which really captures the build up and the magic of Christmas for each of us.
We are absolutely loving all of the gorgeous festive happies that you are sharing, and it’s lovely to see what you are all getting up to as the excitement builds and we all countdown to the big day, but with a ho-ho-ho and a sprinkle of glitter – here’s my advent favourite so far:
Look out for our review of @laplanduk coming to the blog later today. I love Harry’s little face in this photo, it’s the first time in months he’s sat still!! And fair play to Lewis who sat there for a photo even if he was cringing the whole time! ?? . . . . #lapland #laplanduk #fatherchristmas #letsgolittles #thehappynow #thismamaloves #littlefierceones #lifecloseup #pinklinker #coolmumclub #happylittlebuttons #capturingtheday #heartfluttermoments #candidchildhood #siblinglove #saturdaysiblings #myhappycapture #childhoodunplugged #our_every_day_moments #littlestoriesofmylife #darlingdaily #dear-photographer #livebeautifully #developinglife #rememberingthesedays #WorldofLittles #fivelittledoves
This picture was by one of my favourite bloggers and Instagram superstar Laura at fivelittledoves. For me it captures all of the magic of December – family, excitement, tradition and most of all how precious it really is to “believe”. Thank you for sharing such a special capture with us Laura!
I couldn’t write this post without sharing a favourite from each of my lovely co-hosts too.
Annette at 3littlebuttonsblog always wows me with her gorgeous sketches, and this one pretty much sums up Christmas for me and a lot of parents out there I’m sure:

Mrs Lighty – mrslighty1504 shared this stunning image of the night sky over a busy festive evening and I think you can feel the electricity and the magic in the air just looking at it.
Such a gorgeous day today weather wise and we were even treated to this beautiful sunset at our local Christmas lights switch on this evening! Great event as always, Christmas is officially in full swing now! #Christmas #christmaslightsswitchon #christmaslights #lightingupbrentwood #lightingupbwd #brentwood #essex #crowd #highstreet #sunset #prettysky #sky #skyporn #sun #sunny #bluesky #shadows #urban #landscape #landscape_capture #happylittlebuttons #ohprettycity #ukexplore #moretoexploreoutdoors #mblogger #pblogger #ukparentbloggers #pinklinker #coolmumclub #allthingsspliced
