Well Christmas officially happened… the living room resembles something between a bomb site and Toys R Us following a richter-scale 7 earthquake. The garage is piled high with half a forests worth of packaging and the sky box has had its storage stretched in a similar fashion to our stomachs following Christmas dinner at my folks.
It’s been an epic day, the kids have been spoilt rotten by family, friends and the big man in red. It’s pretty safe to say that all the extra space we have created by extending the house was well worth the time and money as otherwise we may not have had room for the piles of parcels we have very kindly received.…
Christmas Eve has finally arrived, the children are buzzing with excitement in anticipation for Santa’s visit. We have spent the day soaking up festive favourites on the television, playing games and snacking randomly.
The children were actually looking forward to bed time and eager to get some shut-eye in desperate hope that Christmas may come sooner.
We sat them down and shared our annual Christmas literature, The Night Before Christmas. The kids were soon sound asleep allowing Paul and I to make the magic happen.
The stockings and sacks are filled to the brim, the sloe vodka swigged, mince pies eaten and the carrot placed back in the fridge.…
It is officially Christmas Eve Eve and I have to say I completely pooped! Paul and I have worked our socks off putting together J’s new room so that he can move in before Christmas.

I have actually managed to get a few things done over the past week and I will of course share some of my #littleloves from the past seven days with you.…
Ho! Ho! Ho! Or Oh No?
I remember when J first met Santa, he was just under a year old when the local Inshore Rescue brought Santa on his sleigh to visit. J seemed rather fascinated by the big mans beard but other than that he wasn’t particularly bothered by the event. J has since continued to be fairly cool about the whole ‘meeting Santa scenario’, his first Christmas J seemed to have that many meetings with Santa at random parties and such like that by Christmas Santa was practically family!
E on the other hand is a different kettle of fish, it was certainly not love at first sight when Evfirst met Santa.…
