Miscellaneous Memories #13 - The Festive Edition.

on Wednesday, 08 January 2014.

The festive period is over for another year, the tree and decorations have been packed away, and it is back to our usual routines after a lovely couple of weeks at home with my little family.  I am sure everyone is completely over Christmas now but this is the last you will hear of it from me until next year.  Promise.

Christmas time was fun, if not a little hectic with two small children, a three day sugar overload, late nights, and more presents than were actually needed but still gratefully received.  We went over to my Mum's on Christmas Eve, where we had birthday celebrations for Mads.  Christmas Day was spent eating far too much food, and passed by in a blur of wrapping paper, matching Christmas onesies and of course a fair bit of fizz.  Plus the obligatory turkey sandwiches which you really don't need as you are already far too full by the time the evening comes.

We went home on Boxing Day and had a quiet day just the four of us, where I spent most of the day organising cupboards and old toys for the charity shop. The 27th was then spent at my Grandparent's in Shropshire with my Dad's side of the family, where a repeat of the above happened.  Since then, we have been busy seeing friends, relaxing at home, and just generally enjoying spending time together.

Believe it or not I didn't take that many photos, but here is our Christmas 2013 in photos...

'He's been!'

Reading one of our many new books from Father Christmas.

Matching Onesies and a post Christmas Eve/no make up look.  What a sight.

True.

All ready and set up.

Who needs pressies when you have baubles from the tree to eat?

Pretty tags.

xmas13i

Opening pressies.

xmas13l

It's a hard job, you have to concentrate.

Looking at the photo book we made for Nana and Grandpa with Nana and Paddington Bear.

xmas13m

Wouldn't be Christmas without stinky cheese.

xmas13nanas2

Sharing a joke with Great Grandpa.

xmas13nanas1

Obligatory dodgy family portraits.  Terrible but priceless for the memories and sentiment.

Yvolutionscooter

Mads got this amazing scooter from Yvolution for her main birthday present. She absolutely loves scooting around, and loves the fact it is pink and she has a matching helmet!  My baby is growing up far too fast!

Last year I started a project for all of the random photos that I took on my 'big camera'.  You can check out the rest of my Miscellaneous Memories here.

    It looks like you had a busy but lovely Christmas surrounded by family, which is exactly what Christmas is all about if you ask me. I spy "Press Here", lucky Mads, that's still a favourite book in this house. x

    Gosh I really really love these. I love the one of LL and her great-grandpa.
    I can't believe LL is standing up! I'm pretty sure you've photoshopped that or she is just growing up WAY too fast!
    Your dinner looks amazing too, I now want a Christmas dinner xx
