Christmas Morning

As usually happens on Christmas Eve G and I got to bed time some time just after midnight. The children were in bed hours before but were they asleep by the time we climbed the wooden hill to collapse, oh no they weren't! T woke us up at 2.30 a.m and 4.30 a.m pleading to start the present opening. At 6.30 he asked us again and we finally agreed. So after he very loudly went and woke up S the pair of them bought their stockings through to our room. In our house Father Christmas only brings the stocking presents and these are from the man himself. S was thrilled he bought the bubble gum machine she really wanted, plus a few other surprises too.


T's main present from us was an X-Box. It wasn't brand new (although it wasn't far off) and so it didn't have the original box. We put it inside a box which had been sent to me from the Book People. T's face was a picture when he tore of the wrapping paper of this large-ish box to see a label saying 'Book People', he thought it was a set of books! This is his face when he realised what it really contained.



S's main present from us was a new bike. She took to riding her bike so well in the summer but quickly out grew the one she had. She is now the proud owner of a new pink bike.



G loves the Monkey onesie we bought him back in October for his birthday and so on one of my shopping trips to town I made sure I bought T and S for Christmas. S is very pretty in her pink one, T's tiger suits him to a T. And probably the less said about the Santa one G bought me the better, but it's so comfy, I love it!

Melvin the cat isn't looking impressed though!

It's usually me who wakes everyone up on Christmas morning, I'm like a big kid, but Eleanor woke us up at 4.45 this year, she's getting worse as she gets older. Needless to say, she was sent back to bed. You all look great in your onesies. The look on T's face as he realised what was in the box is priceless.
