In a long Instagram post, Stacey began: "Hello December… The winter door is finally finished ?❄️.
"This morning was the most beautiful sunny December day I’ve ever seen, so I woke everyone up really early just to put our matching outfits on and take a picture ?.
"Luckily it was something different from the everyday school run and I had advent calendars to persuade them ? so they were on board ??.
"It feels like December has just come around in a flash but at the same time this year has hardly 'flown by'
"So I just wanted to say… It’s been really awful for so many over the past months and is still so hard for lots… I’m so sorry for all those who have struggled and for all of the heartache and loss of this year.
"I’m so thankful for you all. Every single message, bit of kindness, the laughs and the tears.
"You made this year such a special one for us so far, and we couldn’t have done some days without you ?.
"Love you to the moon and back. ? from Me, Joe and ALL of our boys ?."
