It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Especially for the children who are getting ready for the arrival of Santa Clause and although it’s only November the excitement is already building.
This is no different in the O’Connor-Ormond household as the family have jetted off to Lapland as a surprise trip and it looks nothing short of magical.
Sharing some clips to her stories Pippa explained to followers that herself and husband Brian had woken their sons up at 4am and didn’t tell them where they were going. When they got to the airport the boys can be seen looking at the flights trying to guess which one they were boarding.
Eventually all was revealed as they headed to Lapland, home of Saint Nick.
Pippa shared some snaps to her stories of reindeer, a gorgeous sunset and a cosy hut with a fire and hot chocolate from day one.
We will be keeping our eyes on her stories for the remainder of the trip to get us in the festive mood!
This is quite a different trip than the families Summer holiday to Portugal, where the family of five soaked up some sun rather than trekked through the snow.
Pippa and Brian have three sons together Ollie (nine), Louis (six) and Billy (one), although we have yet to see a snap of Billy in Lapland so perhaps he was a little too small for this trip or he may just be behind the camera!
The working mom has previously opened up about how she balances life, work and motherhood and has a lot of praise for her nanny, telling her Instagram followers back in October, “Yes [I have a nanny]! And I’ll always say it. I’m so thankful because I couldn’t do any work otherwise.
“We’ve had a nanny since Louis was small basically since we started our own business. There’s a weird thing about working mothers and who minds their kids. Do whatever works for you. We’re all doing our best.”
