Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year #2018
So, that's it. Christmas is all done for another year and Thank God for that!
Yes it's been fun and exciting and full of festive films and fabulous food. Yes, there's now 3 happy children with more toys and gifts than they really need and yes they all had a wonderful day. BUT If I'm honest, I am exhausted and kind of glad that we made it through and it's all done and dusted for another year. I'd take down the Tree and Decs now if I could.
Our Day went something like this: Kids woke me up around 8am and we all went down stairs to see if Santa had been (which he had). Once everyone was up, we then sat around the room in a circle taking it in turns to open one gift at a time which was lovely as always.
After present opening time, it was time to get dressed and head to Nanny's house to visit family and open even more presents. We shared hugs and gifts and had lots of festive fun.
My big Brother insisted on a family photo which is what the photograph below is. It's practically impossible to get a nice photo of all of them together. There's always one or two of the kids pulling a silly face to try and ruin it. I gave up taking pictures in the end so this is the best of a bad bunch. Both Ryan and Lily are pulling faces but at least they're all looking at the camera I guess. If I crop the silly pair out, Chloe, my Brother and Mum would look Ok.
After visiting my family we then headed off to spend the day with daddy's family. We had a wonderful mean and enjoyed a few too many drinks and chocolatey treats but all was good. The kids got to open even more presents and gave out even more festive hugs and kisses.
Our Christmas Day was a long one but also a very enjoyable one. 2018 in general has been a pretty good year for all of us here. I'm now hoping that 2019 will be even better for us.
This will probably be my last post of 2018 so I'm going to wish you all a very Happy New Year. May it be filled with fun and good health. Excitement and good times. Here's to a good one for us all. Thank you so much for popping by to see me every now and again. It means a lot and I can't wait to do it all over again with you in 2019 - Thank You xx
