Many years ago back in 1993 when I was 6 years old my Mum and Dad took me to Lapland and still to this day I remember so much about it. We took a video recorder and have recently had the footage transferred from VHS to DVD and it really was amazing to watch.
For the last couple of years I have wanted to take the boys and I wanted them to be old enough to remember everything but not too old to not believe in Santa, lets face it the magical part is seeing Santa isn’t it. As a lot of you will know we also have a Vlog Channel on Youtube and I have mentioned Lapland so many times and have to edit it out because the kids do not have any idea that we are going. They actually watch the Youtube videos so I have to be so careful what I say over there.
We decided this year was the year to go and we are going for 4 nights over Christmas 23rd December til 27th December and I am so excited. I have to try not to think about it because it is so far away. The plan is to not tell the kids until we are at the airport ready to check in so it will be the biggest surprise ever. Both of them watched the footage from when I went and they were both desperate to go. Both of them will love to meet Santa and I just can’t wait to see their little faces light up like mine did all those years ago. My Mum and Dad are coming with us as well and we are staying in 2 separate log cabins in Luosto.
The holiday is all booked and now we just need 23rd December to hurry up! Below is one of the cabins we are staying in!
