When I told F that we were going to meet Santa Claus his reaction was priceless and to be honest I can't wait either. Even as a grown up I still believe in the magic of Christmas and I'm a big kid at heart, so the idea of being pulled on a sledge by Huskies, taking a snowmobile over a frozen lake, building a snowman with F and taking a reindeer pulled sleigh through the frozen forest to meet Santa Claus makes me want to squeal out loud with delight.

Tomorrow we're waking super early and flying to the northern expanses of Finland, it's going to be crazy cold at around -16C, so I'm really pleased to be taking our new winter wardrobe from the trusted Swedish brand Didriksons. When travelling somewhere with such a cold climate it's important to ensure all parts are covered and protected from the elements. So F will be wrapped from head to foot with a wool balaclava, mid-weight fleece jumper, ski socks thermals, snow mittens and his Malö Kid's Jacket, snow suit and boots, to ensure he'll have fun in the snow.
Paul and F are going to be rocking the same colour coat which is super cute, and I love the look of this waterproof and windproof Emanuel Men's Parka for Paul. My mum who is joining us will be cosy and warm in her Angelina women's Parka which means we can have loads of fun building snowmen.
As F has already posted his letter to Father Christmas I know what he's wished for, but what I'm wishing for is a glimpse of the Northern Lights. I wonder whether Santa will make my wish come true?
