Christmas at our place

This year will go down in history as the first year I hosted Christmas for my family :) Such an historic event! lol.

For the past few years, we have had Christmas Day with my husband's family and Boxing Day with my family. It stretches out Christmas and means there's no running around on Christmas Day trying to get to see everyone. Works well for us :)

The "historic event" was for my side of the family. We had my little family of 4, my brother's family of 4, my sister, my mum and my Grandma. My brother's girls are the same age as my boys and thankfully they all get along so well.

We had a delicious lunch with cold ham, chicken, pork, salads and bread followed by my Grandma's Christmas pudding that my boys helped her make last month. They were excited to see the end result!

The kids enjoyed having their own table (thanks to 2 little IKEA lack tables!) and it was nice for the adults to have our own table too....

It was a great day and I was really happy to have hosted, even if it did take weeks to tidy the house... and a long time to keep it tidy with 2 little boys around!

After lunch, my sister face painted the kids. Jack asked to be a Lego Ninja and his cousin asked to be a butterfly.

We got a pic of me with my sister, brother and mum. 

and one of my little family of 4

 Merry Christmas everyone!!! Til next year... :)

Mission: Possible

It's nearly a brand year. 2012, I have big plans for you! I'm going to start blogging more and be involved in more little challenges. I've found my first one!

The lovely Chantelle from fat mum slim has put up a photo challenge for January.


Your mission (should you choose to accept it..) is to take a photo a day for the whole of January 2012. There's a theme each day. This message will self destruct in 31 days... lol. hmmm, maybe I need to get some fresh air...

Anyway, mission: accepted. First day is a week and a half away and is YOU! (well, me, but whatevs!)
