+ On Christmas Eve we went to the Nativity Service at Church. It made me feel really fuzzy inside singing all the classic carols and watching the sweet little angels on stage.
+ Ian's little cousins came along with us and in the middle of the last carol 'Silent Night'(which was sung by candlelight) The youngest decided to have a good cry in Ian's arms...Oops!
+ We had a cosy Christmas Eve (with some lovely bed socks and xmas pj's) and helped my little brother get ready for Santa to come and visit. I love helping him getting the milk and cookies ready.
+ On Christmas morning Ian came over with lots of gifts for us all. He wore a cute Santa hat and had a bag full of gifts over his shoulder as he walked down the road..very festive!!
+My nan's perfect roast potatoes!
+ Playing a quiz around the table after our dinner at my nan and gdads house...we always have a fun silly time!
+ Yummy Nut Free Christmas pudding! I had my first one a year or so back and it's so good!
