Kirsty Alp, 36, and husband Matthew, 39, live in Norfolk with Willow, two, and Poppy, one. They’re expecting their third baby in June.

‘I was thinking about what I’d do on Christmas Eve for Father Christmas’ visit, and decided to put all our footprints under the tree with an extra tiny set. We used flour in a sieve to make it look like fallen snow, and I cut out our shoe prints from cereal packets. We then wrote all our Christmas cards and put a photo of the footprints inside before posting them. It was a lovely surprise for our family and friends.’
