A Family Christmas

Christmas is full of sparkle, lights, good food and gifts but the most important part is definitely family.  I have grown up with big family Christmas, generations all coming together, joined by board games and Quality Street and this year was no exception.

This year was Archie's first Christmas and he loved tucking into some turkey, lots of attention and crawling and cruising round the room.

Dylan really understood a lot about Christmas and was very excited that Father Christmas had come to visit.   He was loving the fact that every room had chocolate in it although he may have eaten his body weight in apples!

This year the rule was Christmas jumpers, the cheesier the better and everyone joined in.  I got a great opportunity to put my new tripod to good use.  

The boys were utterly spoilt (as were the bloke and I) and we are lucky to have so many thoughtful friends and relatives.  Uncle Oli bought them a slide and both boys had fun playing on it over the 2 days we were staying with Grandma and Grandpa.

Christmas was everything it should be, full of fun, love, chocolate and card games.  How was yours?

  4. Ah I love all your jumpers! Our Xmas was pretty rubbish, Cherry was and is really ill. She wasn't too bad on Xmas day so we made it over to my FIL's but she went down hill after getting home. She wasn't interested in presents which made it all seem a bit pointless. Hopefully things will be better next year! x

  5. One of the things i miss with england is the cristmas jumpers :) the cheesier the better. Think i might buy a few next year for our english christmas day celebration and everone who comes has to wear one :) great idea and a bit of fun xx Sounds like you had a lovely christmas
