For me Christmas is about seeing the delight (hopefully!) on my childrens faces as they open their presents or hearing them comment "How did you know I would like that?!" - it makes the time spent trawling the High street and shopping online worth it.
Although this year was an uneventful time, in some ways that makes it more relaxing and after falling asleep on the sofa on Christmas Day afternoon and waking at 3PM having not even heated an oven let alone prepared dinner I certainly proved I was laid back this year!
Here is our day in pictures - my favourite way to remember anything (even though yet again Santa forgot I would have liked a camera hhhuuummmppphhh!)
|Smaller Christmas hat next year please Mum!|
|A stolen mince pie tastes the best!|
|Little Man has a first mini tantrum and sulks on the floor - bless!|
|A gift from New York was a firm favourite|
