Finally the big day is here. the pressies are opened, lunch as been served and the kids are watching the Polar Express - time to snatch a moment to myself (sigh). This is Benjis second Xmas and all his presents except one were train related. He got a Thomas the Tank Engine wooden table and heaps of trains as his main present (thankyou trade-me!). he has been in train heaven all day. The girls got a wooden play house and are busy making plans to sleep in it overnight. Adam got an amazing new guitar and the other boys a selection of games, soccer boots, music, books and money!
I love Christmas - especially the little traditions like driving around to see the lights and singing carols with family on Xmas eve. I love seeing the childrens faces alight with excitment and wonder. it truly is a magical time.
Happy christmas everyone and all the best for 2011 :)
