Christmas Eve

I did some baking for our contribution to the 2 family feasts we're attending tomorrow.

(Peppermint creams - they'll be dipped in chocolate tomorrow- and Fairlie's shortbread)

We watched the finale of So You Think You Can Dance (Season 8) all the way to the end despite the fact that the boys were flagging by about 9pm.  The idea was to have them fully tired when they went to bed so they'd fall straight asleep and not be bouncing around in bed thinking about Santa till an annoyingly late time.  We also went for a bike ride earlier today and made them run round entertaining the 3yo child of our afternoon visitors.


Then we went for a tour of the local Christmas lights.  About six houses in adjacent streets had gone to a bit of effort.


Finally we hung up the stockings and put out some treats for Santa and the reindeer.


I reckon the boys were asleep within 10 minutes of hitting the hay.  A Christmas Eve record, surely?


Hope you have a great day tomorrow! Love from us all xxxx


  1. Merry Christmas! We had everyone over to our place today and I am shattered! I hope your day was as lovely as ours.


Don't let the cat get your tongue.
