Our Christmas 2015 ♥
Our Christmas actually began the day before Christmas Eve. Jacek and I attended our 20 week scan in the hospital and got to see the baby again, that was an early Christmas present in itself. Children aren't allowed in the pregnancy clinic so we left Tyler Lee with my mam and he had a great time with her putting wreaths on the graves of our dearly departed, visiting the dogs I minded in the summer months - where he got a big bag full of toys and his Nana gave him his gift - his first ever bike and helmet, which he absolutely loves. We won't be seeing my mother again until the New Year so she spent some time with us that day and it was lovely to catch up.
Once we had had breakfast and got ready we visited my grandparents house - my favourite part of Christmas Day as I love seeing everyone. Everyone was in great spirits and we were all catching up, enjoying some delicious homemade sausage rolls - my favourite, chocolates and drinks. We didn't leave there until ten to three and then we had to go straight out to my parents house where we were having dinner with my stepfather, brother and his girlfriend - who Tyler Lee is besotted by! Dinner was lovely and we all had a laugh with each other, you can't beat some banter at the dinner table! At six o' clock we had a very tired and cranky little boy so we decided to head home. He fell asleep in the car, he was exhausted from all the fun and surprises of the day. Jacek and I finished off our Christmas Day by watching the soaps and almost falling asleep on the couch - a typical Christmas Day night!
This Christmas I didn't take as many pictures as I'd have liked as I was too busy enjoying the moments with my family, instead of looking in from the outside with my camera. We didn't eat lots of chocolate or sweets, in fact, the stockings are left untouched to this day! We didn't get to relive some traditions - such as reading bedtime stories to Tyler Lee on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but you know what, our festive season was perfect and just how I wanted it to be, full of quality family time, happy memories and all those little moments that make life special.
