Hello everyone, I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas. I had a lovely day, quiet and spent with my family and extremely lovely, I had a really special day with my loved ones. I thought I would share my Christmas day with you, what we did etc and was also going to write a blog post all about the gifts I received but rather than putting on photographs of each present I thought I would link the video I made for my You tube channel about what I got for Christmas and if you would like me to write a blog post on any specific item I received please let me know in the comments section and I will be happy to do one.
Our Christmas Day -
Our Christmas Day -
We got up at around 8.15am and as always Simon went into the lounge to see if Father Christmas had been, and he certainly had. The mince pie had been eaten, the carrot was missing, the reindeer food Cole sprinkled the night before had gone and there were lots of presents all over our lounge.
The girls and Adam opened their presents first then Simon and then I opened mine last, we all got some really lovely things, I was totally and utterly spoiled! Simon and I didn't buy each other gifts this year, we decided it was silly to spend 'our money' buying each other things when neither of us really needed anything, we are going to put the money we would have spent towards our holiday or decorating since we are currently working our way through the house from top to bottom decorating. We did this a couple of years ago and didn't buy each other gifts and instead bought a camera for our holidays in the summer sales.
Once we had all opened our presents, we spent some time looking at our things and each others, then it was time to get ready, we all got dressed, and whilst Simon and Adam prepared our Christmas dinner and the girls got ready, I filmed my 'what I got for Christmas' video.
My mum and step dad came over later and we had a lovely dinner and pulled crackers and donned our party hats. We then did a family quiz which my step dad had got from his weekly water colour class Christmas party, he enjoyed doing it there and thought it would be good to bring it for us to do at Christmas, it was a great idea and we all had a great time doing it. We had to get into 3 teams of 2 with my step dad being the quiz master. There was a traditional Christmas quiz with lots of questions surrounding Christmas then there was an animal quiz, both were quirky and we had some very funny answers between us, at the end when all the scores were added up me and my mum were the winners. We played some more games and had lots of fun and it was 10.45pm before we knew it and my parents went home, we all got into our PJ's and watched some TV before going to bed after a really lovely day.
I will insert some photographs of our Christmas and also link the video of my 'what I got for Christmas' I hope you enjoy looking at and watching them.

What did you do for Christmas? Do you have any family traditions? I hope you liked the things I got for Christmas, like I said I was very very spoiled and I am a very lucky mamma :)
