This Christmas we spend the day as a three. Each year we alternate between spending the day with our family or spending it on our own. It allows us to make sure our parents get to experience the joy of seeing their grandson open his presents on Christmas Day at the same time as giving us some years where the memories are all at ours.
We enjoyed a pretty relaxed Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, with M and Clara not getting out of their pj’s at all. We had decided, last minute, that we wouldn’t eat a roast for our Christmas dinner, instead I prepared a spread of our favourite foods, alongside a slow cooked ham, prepared in our awesome Fast Slow Pro (review coming very soon). The day was spent watching our little man open everything he’d asked Santa for, as well as many more exciting toys. Our little man is very blessed to be surrounded by so many people who adore him and helped make sure all requests were covered, including a toy lawn mower (thanks mil) and a Rocky from Paw Patrol (thanks mum).
Both Clara and I felt very blessed by the kindness of our family and were surprised to be gifted with so many thoughtful gifts. I enjoyed capturing the little details this Christmas and put them together in a little vlog, which you can find at the bottom of this post. It really feels like Christmas flew by, but I am happy to share that it was one of my favourite.
