Merry Christmas everyone.
The kids have had a fabulous December so far. They love Christmas lights and treats and music… and today they loved opening mountains of presents.
We celebrated at home with my mother in law, brother in law and brother. Our first Christmas without my mother, who died in April. So much making it a tricky time, but we kept the festive spirit alive and had a really lovely time.
At a Christmas carol concert yesterday Audrey was not only the star of the show “Hello everyone!” but also got to be Mary. She adores Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas is You’ and she loves mince pies.
Rex is approaching 2, so is in equal measures adorable and horrific. Tantrums have reached a peak.
I have to admit that I was scared about how I might “get through” the holidays without my mum or my dad, but the kids really do make it.
