Christmas Day

Christmas has come and gone for another year. And ours was AWESOME!! x3
In 12 months we have gone from having one child at Christmas to 3, and so that made it 3 times better this year!!
From before 6 in the morning, our house was covered in wrapping paper and littered with boxes and toys. Not a spare spot to foot. 
The kids , more so Stella, was in heaven and she was just so excited.
The food was made and eaten.
The presents were bought, wrapped and given.
The bon bons were popped and joked about (pretty lame ones too , hehe )
Having all our family in town, the day can get quite chaotic, as much as you try for it not to. But in the end, its Christmas.
The magic was in the air at our place, with biscuits and beer put out for Santa, a bucket for the reindeers and the Santa Key on the front door.
Stella went to bed, in her new Christmas PJ's (an idea I stole off another blogger, to gift new Pyjamas on Christmas eve, a small present to open for each child, of new Pj's to wear to bed and look gorgeous in for photos on the big day)
The babies were awake and we had to pretty much wake Stella but boy was she onto it the moment her eyes opened.
"Did Santa come? With the reindeer outside, he came, to my house:"
 Yes sweet, he came, to your house.
This magic we cherish so much this year, as we know, in reality , it is so short lived for kids these days, but I never want it to stop.
It was presents as a family early morning, then off to my parents house for gift swapping with my sister and her kids, my parents etc. Breakfast at the inlaws , and lunch back at our place with family from my Dads side. Luckily this year we said , no tea- we wanted to stay home and get ready to leave the next day for Horrocks.
We vow to do it every year now, the morning was a rush and full on, but the arvo flowed and laughs, drinks and play was had by all. The way Christmas should be.....
Stop reading now, however, if you aren't into my happy snaps, cos boy was I snapping on Xmas day!!

It was a hot day, so the kids enjoyed playing under the sprinkler and in the clam shells!!
