On Christmas Eve the children snuggled up with Daddy in their new PJs to listen to "'Twas the Night Before Christmas"...
I finished the masses of wrapping we had left to do(!) and piled the presents under the tree... the toy box is underneath the pile!!
Logan woke us at about 5.30 and after playing with him and trying to keep him quiet for over an hour we gave him his stocking (and opened ours) before Lyra came in and joined us at about 7.30 to open hers :)
Everyone got dressed and went downstairs for breakfast (breakfast BEFORE presents of course)
Then the serious business of present opening began in earnest....
Logan wasn't too sure about the opening presents and I think was a little overwhelmed, though he did try to eat the wrapping paper when he did tear a bit off...
OK he does seem rather uninterested in the farm animals I lovingly made for him, however he does play with them (and chews them!) a lot
Lyra, however, was quite a pro at the present opening thing and opened a lot of Logan's too (and ours). This is a little bag I made for her for the kid tough camera that was her main present.
Even Cassie got into the festive spirit and suffered a jingly jangly fluffy festive collar for a little while
And then we generally played, nibbled, cuddled etc etc etc.... as you can see the lounge was rather a state by the time the Opening was complete!
& that was our Christmas day! of course int he run up we had numerous parties, Lyra's first Nativity with preschool, Christmas Eve with my family and so on but that was the day itself, a lovely family time with presents and happy exciteable children. Unfortunately Lyra was poorly and Logan was teething but everyone managed to be in good spirits and we had a lovely day... can't wait until the next one! x
