Merry Christmas!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas. May you have a blessed day surrounded by those you love, and filled with fun and laughter as you celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Here are a few pictures of our day - sadly after Angus's high hopes of having a birthday party for Jesus, he instead ended up curled on a chair with a fever a little over 100f / 40c and didn't want to join in. He was, though, just about with it enough to occasionally open a present or two!

Angus gave Isla "pretty things" which he chose. He particularly loved these hair ties as they are sparkly and have stars. Isla loved them and wore pig tails for the first time. She said, "Pretty hair, pretty pink hair" and wouldn't let us take them out until bedtime.

Granny gave Isla this rocking horse for Christmas. They both love it.

We gave Angus more trains and track for his set. He was really excited and then decided that he didn't feel well and that was that!

Watching the trains go by.

Our Christmas corner. Angus was very excited about the candles. The nativity box has a door for each day in Advent. Inside is a small figure and chocolate. Both children have loved the ritual of opening a door each evening, eating the chocolate and seeing the story unfold.   

That is our Christmas in essence. We hope and pray that you all have a good Christ-filled Christmas too.
