This weekend, we finally got our Christmas tree up. Well, I say we - it ended up being just me, Pierre and Juliette because Sophie won a last minute competition on twitter to go and see a big football match so she headed off with Madhouse Daddy to Paris for the day ! While I tested the lights, Pierre transformed himself into a living tree !
Then we covered the tree in everything we could find in the boxes of decorations, from tinsel and fairy lights to baubles and crackers.
I left the star at the top for Sophie or Madhouse Daddy to put in place because I couldn't reach and they're both taller than me ! There's definitely no colour scheme here at The Madhouse, it's a total mishmash !
There was one new bauble this year that Pierre was very proud to hang on the tree because he'd received it through the post - a bauble containing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle !
Along with a #halfshellheroes Christmas card. Did you notice anything different about the turtles there? These are the Half Shell Heroes, the latest collection from TMNT which is aimed at a younger audience (2 - 5 year olds), with bright colours and chunky shapes for little hands.
If you fancy checking out the new toy collection, head over to www.ukmums.tv and make sure you also try your luck at the fab advent competition with a different Half Shell Heroes prize every day.
