Our Christmas Day 2017 Photos

Christmas Day 2017 – For the first time since having children, I was able to sleep in until 7 am on Christmas day! Ella and KayCee said they were going to get up at 4.30 am because that’s what time they always woke on Christmas day.

Ella actually woke at midnight to go to the toilet, just as we were going to bed. She noticed the stockings were gone and thought Santa had taken them but I told her I’d borrowed them to take photos. I’ve made Aiden a new stocking this year and had forgotten to photograph it.

Ant came to bed and around 20 minutes later we heard Ella creeping to her door and taking the filled stockings to her room!
She woke KayCee who told her it was too early to open the presents. I think KayCee said Ella eventually opened them around 2.30 am then fell back to sleep.
I got up just after 7 and the girls were still in bed!

It didn’t take them long to wake up and remember it was Christmas 🙂
They woke Aiden, who unfortunately was still ill (he’d been at his dad’s until Christmas Eve and came home with a cold) but he put a brave face on and enjoyed opening his presents.

We had a lovely morning together then Jerome (Ant’s youngest son) and Kellyann (his daughter) came to visit. We don’t see Jerome much through the year so it was really nice to see him.

Kellyann bought her gifts with her and as usual, she’d totally spoilt them! She’d filled a unicorn box with everything unicorn for Ella, including a gymnast leotard that had a unicorn on and her name. I’ve never seen her so excited 🙂

Granddad and Jonathan came for dinner then stayed to play Kaycee’s new Monopoly Jackpot game.

A wonderful day was had by all 🙂

    It sounds and looks like you had a fab Christmas….
    Looking at Ella’s presents I can see quite a few that my Ellie got too. Hooray for Unicorn obsessed children. lol

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
