Christmas time with the family is always such a blessing and this year was no different.
We spent Christmas Eve with Sam’s brother and his wife. Sean and Kym came round for a roast dinner and present opening, a little prequel to the big day.
We were wondering how early Christmas was going to start for us given that Anabelle (2.5 years) is usually up before 6am on a usual day but this was Christmas! We let her stay up as late as she wanted on Christmas Eve in the hope that we’d get a bit of a sleep in – it kind of worked she got up at 6:30am, we’ll take it 🙂
We headed out to the lounge room and began to open our presents. Anabelle loved the first one she opened so much she wasnt interested in the others – thankfully that didn’t last too long ;).
Levi loved his presents too 🙂
We then got our stuff ready and headed off for to my parent’s place for Christmas lunch with the family.
The kids were utterly spoilt this year, so much so that Anabelle had “present overload” and had to be “encouraged” to open all her presents!
Anabelle and Levi loved Christmas!
Uncle Dan used his amazing talent and made Anabelle a Teepee style tent for Christmas! It’s so amazing, the kids are going to have a lot of fun playing in it. Uncle Dan tried to get Anabelle to have a nap in it (she needed one bad come late afternoon!) but it kind of backfired – Uncle Dan fell asleep while Anabelle ran off to play – so funny!
Thank you to everyone for your generosity and love this Christmas. May you have a blessed 2011!
