A Very Merry Christmas!

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Well I thought I would write a little about our Christmas. It was wonderful (shame we only had two days off work to enjoy it!) I was much more organised this Christmas so had just a handful of last minute presents to wrap Christmas Eve and by 9pm all the gifts were wrapped, the room was set up (well Santa had visited) and I got an early night!

Unfortunately I didn't sleep well as Gracie joined me in bed after having lots of nightmares, she must have been scared of Santa coming in while she was sleeping! I on the other hand was scared of someone not so nice coming in the house! Typical isn't it us mums never get to rest you hear so many horror stories about break ins over Christmas, we actually had an attempted break in at our old house last year, and so I was awake listening for the slightest sounds. Of course there weren't any it was me being paranoid. Once the kids finally woke up at around 8.30am it was time to see if Santa had visited and he certainly had! The kids faces were a picture and they both had lots of fun opening their presents.

I had been so good this year not buying too much but of course by the time they had gotten the rest of the family's presents on Christmas Day and then more on Boxing Day, when I had my Dads side of the family all round for a second Christmas Day, they had been well and truly spoilt! The kids have both chosen their favourite Christmas presents already. Gracie's being her talking woody and Jessie dolls from Toy Story and her Iron Man and Hulk figures! Zach's being his scuttle bug bike and his megabloks.
Dinner was amazing! This year we had dinner at my Grandma's house just me, Andy, the kids, my younger brother and of course my Grandma. She is a fantastic cook and the most organised one I have ever known. It was a lovely dinner and a nice relaxing atmosphere where we ate and drank and laughed.

It was so nice to spend some time together although I wish me and Andy had had an extra day off to spend a bit of time just the four of us. For the kids this has been the most magical Christmas yet and I couldn't be happier to have seen their faces and realised that all the hard work had paid off. What's even better is this was our first Christmas in our own home!

I'm already preparing for next Christmas after doing a bit of sale shopping to put away for next year. You can never be too organised!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas? What was your best bit?
