I probably say this every year, but this year really did feel like our best Christmas yet. We had such a lovely day, we just stayed in and hibernated in our pyjamas!
We were all thoroughly spoilt with such lovely gifts, we ate lots of yummy food and surprisingly the Christmas tree is still standing! Since putting it up we have bought some blue lights for it so I did take the opportunity to move a bit of tinsel and a few baubles around so its a bit more balanced while we were putting the new lights on. I wasn't going to bother as to be honest I thought I would be taking it down on Boxing day, but the boys have been great and they haven't really bothered with it much.
5 stockings waiting for little hands to delve in and unwrap their contents
Our very untraditional Christmas cake in my new cake dome
New Christmas jammies and slippers
The boys were getting into the swing of things
Noel wanted a computer game so I printed off a certificate and wrapped that so that he had something to open
April's gift was much easier to sort out - Sylvanian Families Fish and Chip Van
And Hermione got Wooster the dog
For some reason I don't have a photo of the boys opening their presents, probably because they opened theirs later than everyone else but they got a Happy Land Village with little shops and people to play with
The big ones also spent lots of time playing with this playmobil that I bought off a friend. I guess as long as its new to them then that is good enough.
I hope you all had a lovely, cosy Christmas and a Very Happy and Healthy New Year to you all
Lots of love
Jem, Stu, Noel, April, Hermione, Samuel and Isaac x x x x x x x
