Our Christmas!

Oh what a fantastic Christmas! I hope you enjoyed yours, as much we did. Happy New Year to you all. I hope that 2009 brings you everything you wish for..
Well, the little ones certainly bring magic to the festive season dont they. A couple of days before Christmas we went to Hamleys and Hyde parks Winter Wonderland. The children loved it, they didnt complain about the walking or the cold and they truly had an amazing time. their little faces lit up as we walked in and they had the time of there life. Oh I can remember the excitement as a child and to watch them having that feeling themselves is so special. A huge thank you to my mum and dad for taking us, you are two very special people. This is my mum and dad and of course the little babes, just outside Hamleys -

This is Carnaby street, where Poppi wasnt quite sure if those huge snowmen where going to fall on her or not. And this is them watching the little train going round and round on the top floor. The were fascinated by it -

And this is Christmas morning, with that typical "what shall we open next?" look.

Then it was over to Mum and Dads, where, can you believe Santa also delivered these, as they have been really good in 2008... (apparently)

And of course no Christmas would be the same without some additions to the Scalextric. Oh yes! Hamilton vs. Reikenen no less. Come on lads, its only a game. Mind you in true formula one style, dad was the Ferrari, therefore he was allowed to cheat! (not that I dislike Ferrari or anything, sorry but I am my fathers daughter!!)))

As for Poppi, she was all played out and decided that it was far much more fun to get my brother to hold her upside down. She literally must have done this 20 times, not long after lunch I hasten to add.

Anyway, these are just few of the millions of pics that I took and I am determined to do some scrapping this year. There are so many moments that I cherish and I would love to look back through albums with lots of journalling and little quotes from the children. I would hate to forget what they said when. So this is definately my new years resolution. Whats yours?

We had an absolute ball over the last couple of weeks, but now its back to reality, Poppicrafts is open for business and the school runs start again in the morning. Urgh! Pack lunches and school uniforms, Grr!! So im off to bed now. I will post a couple of christmas gifts that I made over the next couple of days, now I am able to show them.
