This is just a quick post sharing a few pics of our Christmas shenanigans! Apologies for the dodgy iPhone photos.
First we enjoyed the storm on Christmas Eve night, it actually made me feel a lot less homesick. Hubby and Little Man did some good ol’ fashioned Santa Spotting before laying out a mince pie and a glass of milk for the big man and carrots with a bowl of water for the reindeer’s.
After opening gifts (I was clearly too slack to capture those particular precious memories) we naturally started with a bit of an elf wrestle. Or as we like to call it – “a baby pile”.
Then I gave Oscar his gift. Took me ages to wrap and he didn’t even say thanks.
For some reason I thought it was hugely important to take numerous photos of the stuffing balls. Seriously. I have more of these on my phone than I do of my children. Priorities, amiright?
The girls got their elf costumes pretty grubby at lunch time so I changed them into their Christmas bloomers…
Then it was quiet time. Everyone slept except for LM and I. He watched Flushed Away or as he calls it “Flushed Away Mouseys” and I cleaned up. I then finished the late afternoon with some planting…
It was quiet, but special.
I hope your day was wonderful too.
