Communal Global ~ Christmas Edition



269/365 ~ 35mm Bell


Ok ~ so I know it's not actually Christmas anymore, and in fact we are now 3 days into 2012, but it's been mad busy around here over the holidays, and this is truly the first chance I've had (even now there are other things I SHOULD be doing!) post about Christmas.

This year my Mum and my Nanna came to be with us (my Nan is staying for a while longer). It was great to have them here :D

Christmas Day, we always open just one or two small gifts in the morning and then head out to church for a short service of celebration of this very special day. The children take what they have opened to show everyone ~ it's lovely!

Then it's home to finish of the meal. This year we let the children open a new family game that their grandparents bought them, to play for an hour while we got busy setting tables and cooking up a scrumptious meal!

it was time to set to on 'the great unwrap' ~ with 8 children and 4 adults in the house it can take some while!!

Everyone was delighted with their gifts and a good time was had by all :D

Your Christmas looks magical. I like the ones that show it wasn't perfect. My fave today is the Christmas tree. Blessings for 2012.
