Then, heading over to join the big crowd outside the house in Oriental Parade, to try and make enough noise to make the sound activated Christmas lights light up.
Watching the Nativity scene in the Joy to the World DVD on Christmas morning on our bed with the kids.
The kids made Christmas presents for the family this year. I loved seeing the excitement of the giver and receiver. A lot of thought and effort was put into the making of the gifts over the past couple of months. It was really special to see the kids show genuine appreciation when they received the presents. Probably one of my favourite parts of the day.
Our special banquet breakfast (lots of favourite food and drinks – kind of like our tradition of the birthday breakfast in bed, but we get to enjoy it all together, and it is at the table…rather than the bed….hehehe.)
Visiting family and loved ones.
Looking 4 months pregnant after finishing the amazing Christmas dinner that my mother prepared!
From our family to yours…may you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
