Welcome back to week twenty one of #RememberingTheseDays Instagram community. The place to share your precious family memories. I host this community with the lovely Laura over at Life with Baby Kicks Whatever the memory, or life event you want to record, joining in is simple, just tag your favourite photos #RememberingTheseDays over on Instagram. Each Sunday Laura and I will choose our four favourites. Please follow Mudpie Fridays here and Life with Baby Kicks here on Instagram to see if you have been featured.
Each Saturday when I go in to choose my favourites and make sure I have liked every photo within the tag, I always try to guess how many we will be up to. I was amazed to see that we are now at 11,100+. Considering we only just passed 10,000 last week I was quite shocked at how the community continues to grow with lots of new people joining us for the first time. Thank you to everyone who continues to use #RememberingTheseDays. To mark the beginning of December and my newly found festive mood I have opted for some lovely Christmassy shots this week. I suspect this will continue now until the new year!
This weeks favourites:
From top left to bottom right:
- I have always wanted to try this but have always failed miserably! Great photo from @verymuchsoblog for her me and my project this month
- This photo took me back down memory lane, as I have a very similar one of Monkey at the same age, great capture from @littlebuttondiaries
- What a great way to start December with a beautiful photo shoot, this photo is without doubt just that! @ivyandiblog
- This is a truly magical photo from @squishedblueberries and you can’t get much more Christmassy with trees and a Santa’s hat!

My favourite from my feed is this one of me and Monkey at Lapland UK. We had such a brilliant time and left on very much a festive high. I also think we have probably found a new Christmas tradition and will be returning next year for sure. I am just in the process of putting the final touches to the review which will publish early next week.
My favourite from Laura’s feed is this one of the Big One putting the star on top of the tree! I too have tried to capture this photo year after year and have failed miserably. Since the Big One and Monkey are similar in age range I am hoping that this may also be the year for us too! In fact as you read this with any luck we are off trying to pick out a Christmas Tree!
And so here it is Merry Christmas, the tree is up. This is one of those picture shots that I try to get every year and normally fail at. This year I managed it. Though you have to know that behind the photo was a whining 4 year old asking every 3 seconds if he could put the star on, a toddler pulling the tree over and a cat going bezerk…..
