Christmas was a lovely relaxing affair, no illnesses for us thankfully this year. Even though more than half of the town were ailing so we were very lucky to avoid joining them… sickness bugs, temperatures and even chicken pox were in full swing!
The boys all set for Santa's arrival!
The presents were a mixed bunch in terms of success. The chocolate coin maker is a royal pain in the rear, fiddly pieces and you can only set four coins at a time, so lots of time spent waiting about, to create all of two coins each when you have two boys sharing the set… (A present not to be recommended, but I guess Santa cannot get it right all of the time!).
The craft bits and bobs went down well, the foil art set was perfect, a chance to be creative without any mess! The face painting went down a treat, who needs new makeup for Christmas when you end up looking like this:
We had a shaving bath set (Alex Rub a Dub Shaving in the Tub bath toy) and a colouring set (Artist in a tub painting set), which has made bath time much more enjoyable for them both. Eldest looks so sweet copying daddy shaving with his little razor and tiny mirror and foam. Youngest meanwhile is being quite artistic and the bath has never looked so colourful!
My eldest had a right face on him when he set eyes on a ladies boots box from nanny and granddad, luckily when he opened it he discovered more of his much loved Skylanders.
At dinner I said to the boys, I cannot possibly eat anymore I might explode, they had fear in their eyes, mummy do not eat anymore, we do not want you to explode… bless them!
How cute do they look in their new onesies they had off a good friend of mine.
