Christmas Day at Mum & Dad’s

After breakfast we loaded up and headed out to the farm where Mum and Dad were hosting Christmas Lunch for the whole Godfrey clan.  We had such a mint day, the weather was awesome, the house was perfect for lunch for so many people, the kids had a blast playing together and Hadyn was there!  Pefecto!  Thanks Mum, you did an awesome job;

Daybook

Outside my window…There are 3 large pink roses
I am thinking…of Dave getting home tonight!
I am thankful for…Ethan’s fab behaviour while shopping today
From the learning rooms…Ethan practised writing his numbers today
From the kitchen…there will emerge Taco’s round 2 aka leftovers
I am wearing…My new shirt Dave bought me for Christmas, I love it
I am creating…order in Ethan’s room
I am going…nowhere!  We have already been on our shopping excursion for the day
I am reading…a textbook, I don’t recall what fiction is anymore : (
I am hoping…a bourbon fairy really does exist
I am hearing…The BBC doco The Blue Planet
Around the house…things are great, I have reclaimed most of it from ‘Ethan’s extravagent Christmas’, (he only just realized that he got a digital camera for Christmas, too many other wonderful things to play with)
One of my favourite things…is my new olive oil drizzler I picked up today
A few plans for the rest of the week:  New Years holla
Here is picture thought I am sharing…my new giant bulldog clip and pencil case from smiggle, love that shop

Santa got it just right!

A 5.55am start saw us revelling in the Christmas spirit bright and early and it was worth it.  Ethan was so sweet and excited, he gave Louie, Dave and I our gifts before he even though about tackling the large mound under the tree.

Ethan wasn’t too impressed that Santa did not eat all of his homemade shortbread!

Christmas Eve

After a lovely traditional turkey dinner Ethan set out his cookies for Santa, and a carrot (just one) for the reindeer and headed quietly to bed.  Perhaps the hype of the last few days before Christmas had wore him out as he fell asleep so quickly….hmmm what time will wake-up be in the morning?
