It is for me isn't it? Really it is promise me. That's what she looks like hey! So darn cute i can hardly breathe. And Christmas is so about children. Even at this tiny 4 month age, it is so wonderful having a child to share Christmas with again. Our girls are grown and somehow the shine goes off Christmas when the kids aren't little any more. I know the whole meaning of the day doesn't change, at any age, but the absolute excitement of the going to bed early, waking up early, tearing the paper from the present, the shiny eyes, big smiles, squeals of delight and the giggles and just the wonder of the whole day is different when the youngest kids are 21. So this year I can see again the wonder and excitement coming again in the future. Princess Elle was very excited she loves the twinkling lights on the Christmas tree the most and spends ages just staring at them.
Here she is with her mum roped in opening her present. How sweet.
She has a magic little smile, that stops you in your tracks, what a little angel.
Ever the most popular girl in the room, once again the star of nearly every photo, what a life this little one has.
Christmas Eve started well with the girls having a quick cuddle with their dad.
Vegas drinking mugs in hand the day started well for Ashleigh and Danielle, but didn't end so well for Nelly ha ha age will teach her a thing or two I think.
The traditional family photo taken and I now have resolution lose weight woman what are you thinking!!!!!!!!
Gotta love Danielle's moustache though.
So once again the food is prepared, presented and eaten. The plates cleaned off and put away, the presents wrapped and unwrapped, the tidying done and the left overs prepared. The presents lovingly given and received and for me the best present of all, I have had everyone together again. I love Christmas for that mostly.
I hope your day was wonderful, filled with love and friends and family.
Let's get ready for 2011.
