#HappyLittleButtons December Round Up

January 6, 2017


Thanks for stopping by to check out our #HappyLittleButtons Instagram community round up. If you are NEW to #HappyLittleButtons, head down to the bottom of this post to find out what it’s all about and how to join in.


December was always going to be super busy for everyone, so we decided to showcase a special #HappyLittleButtons Advent Round Up mid-December, and push back our full December round up to beginning of January. As always, I just can’t believe how many #HappyLittleButtons photos we have linked up, it changes every day but at the moment we stand at 3,344. That’s a whole lotta happiness.





My #HappyLittleButtons December Round Up

I decided to theme this December’s round up around special captured moments. You know… the ones that really stick in your mind and pull on the heartstrings. Of course, being the happy bunch that you are, there were so many to choose from. But these specific ones stuck and I hope you enjoy.

Now if there ever was a moment… this is it. This clever capture from Bridget pretty much sums up adventures to me. And just where did that cloud bird or even dragon come from. Beautiful!



Check out the giraffe’s expression!! Like it’s saying: ‘Heeeey!’ or maybe that should be ‘Haaaaay!’ as that’s what they were busy stuffing in!! I only noticed looking back at the photos & it cracked me up! (No giraffe emoji in the last update then!) Absolutely lush day today, had the Christmas music blasting & wrapped up pressies next to me as we drove to meet my lovely Aunties for a fun, (if totally freezing!!❄️), day at the Cotswold Wildlife Park then back to meet some really wonderful friends for a Christmas catch up dinner as they moved away in Sep. All the kids were so well behaved and it has really got me in the festive spirit! They had also given the lions & their cubs (squee!) Christmas pressies & it was so funny watching the king of the jungle rolling around in the wrapping paper like a kitten…..even if the newspaper photographer there did hog allllll the photo ops!! What’s your favourite animal to see at these sort of places? #pinklinker

Happiness is catching, literally in this case.  I wonder how Louise got this giraffe to say cheese.

I love the beach. This gorgeous winter beach moment from Jo-Ann had me wishing I was there too.



One day when you are all running around together it will be hard to remember you being this tiny at your big brothers’ 3rd birthday party.

Something so simple and fleeting, yet a treasured moment that will last forever for Amy. A gorgeous capture.

This breathtaking sunrise caught by Nic is stunning. It’s shots like this that make me treasure our time out of the city even more.

Full of jelly beans, I love Dawn’s photo of  her 2 littles enjoying being little. Nothing beats that free feeling of just being able to be.
