A year in pictures – Day 359

25 December

Christmas Day and we had such a lovely day spent with family.

This morning we spent time chilling out in front of the fire opening presents. The kids were pretty excited although their biggest gasps were reserved for the fact that Father Christmas had been and he head eaten all the biscuits but Rudolph had only eaten half his carrot.

My sister and I cooked lunch at Dad’s house. We did a pretty good job although due to gossiping a lot and drinking a bit of prosecco we managed to overcook quite a bit of food. In the end it was a pretty decent meal.

This is what I appreciate most about Christmas Day, time with our family. As usual we miss Mum loads and life just isn’t quite the same without her but I think we are making a pretty good go at life without her.

Merry Christmas everyone x

Christingle

Had a nice day of Christmas food prep including cooking the turkey (gah – think I have overcooked it because I was so paranoid about undercooking it!) and making trifle.

This evening we went to the Christingle service at church. It was absolute carnage as usual and it always makes me laugh. We managed to escape unscathed without setting fire to anyone or anything. I class that as a successful outing!

Tree of JoyThe Tree of Joy has been lit in town. Such a lovely sight on the skyline and it certainly makes me feel that Christmas is just around the corner.

This evening I was singing in town with Bel Canto and whilst it was a bit of a struggle because I was knackered and feel a little like I am overloaded with stuff to do, I did really enjoy it in the end.

Scratch NativityToday was the Scratch Nativity at church. It is an event that always makes me laugh and it is absolute chaos!

Both kids were persuaded into their Wise Men and Woman costumes. My niece and nephew apparently refused to dress up before leaving the house but decided to go and raid the dressing up box when they arrived at church.

Here is a shepherd and a wise woman. Gorgeous girls. (and a dabbing Wise Man in the background!)

Work Do.

Tonight it was our work Christmas Do.

We went to a steakhouse called Nineteen and the food was absolutely fabulous.

We also drank good wine, the company wasn’t bad and there was a lot of laughter.

Fab stuff.

Good News Angel

This morning The Mister and I went to see The Little Miss in her Nativity.

She was a Good News Angel and she OWNED that part!

She spent most of the session sitting on the stage and picking her nose and then pointing that finger at people. She was very funny and we were proud of her.

This was the photo that pre-school gave us. Look how proud she is of that harp!

Duck Nativity

This weekend I am in Brighton and I found this fabulous shop selling rubber ducks.

My favourite display was this duck Nativity scene. Genius!

Christmas smellsIt’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas!

I love mincemeat, especially the smell when it is cooking. Delicious!
