Christmas 2013

Before Christmas ...
the tree was decorated,
as were the windows,
the stairs,
 and the kitchen.

Even the bedrooms were tinselled.  In fact only the bathroom escaped! :)
Cards were exchanged
and the sweetie bar was opened once the children had returned home from university.
Christmas Eve ...
the baking was finished and the cake decorated.
Stockings were brought out in anticipation of Santa's visit. :)
Christmas Day ...
Presents were opened and much appreciated by all.
The table was set and the turkey placed in the oven.
Crackers were pulled and jokes moaned at!
In the afternoon we posed for our Christmas photo.
The biggest kid kept larking around! This photo still makes me laugh; there were cries of "Dad, please behave!" :)
Me and my Babies
and with my Husband, who was finally behaving himself. :)
In truth he made my day, he was so funny.
Boxing Day ...
was a quieter affair.
After our morning coffee, my Husband and I went for a walk in the glorious sunshine.
A few trees had been brought down by the recent storms.
After a repeat Christmas lunch we attempted to break Fay's reign as Queen of the Monopoly board.  The keyword there is attempted! :)
The gingerbread house was only thing that was broken! :)
 So that was our Christmas, the four of us together at home having a fun time.  I hope you all had a good one too.
Best wishes, Pj x
