What a great Christmas day we had with the grand kids in England. The kids loved it and this is their time and the Christmas story with Santa was magical. For all the commercialism that Christmas has been spoiled by this was a special day for the girls and us all. Mum and Dad put so much effort in to make it fun that I had forgotten what Christmas is all about for the kids.
The little things like Santa’s Footprints in the hall, the chimney with the mince pies and the half eaten carrots and Lexi eyes amazed and taking it all in she is 5 and this is her time Her sister Ellie so young nearly two but just laughing and loving every minute. We had great fun opening the presents and did we laugh all day. The kids joy was there to see and enjoy !
The meal was stupendous t in every way the girls perfect and we had fun all afternoon, even a short nap and a dog walk. Lexi entertained us with the Karaoke machine and the day sped by. It was one of the best Christmas days ever; I am blessed despite my Ladybird dating book present. Maybe there is still hope.
Thanks Yvette, Dave, Lexi, Ellie Skye, Flo and Robbie and all my family for being so good to me.
