Christmas Day 2017 a picture of gifts

Christmas Day 2017 I can’t believe it’s gone. 2 days have passed and the madness is fading. My heart is filled with so much love. We had the most wonderful few days. Celebrating with loved ones and watching the children’s faces as they open their gifts.

Christmas Day 2017

Christmas Day 2017

We started the day off at our own home as we do every year. We lie in bed listening out for the pitter patter of tiny feet coming down the stars. The fear of them getting to the living room without us and us missing their little faces. Mr Lifeofamumof6 had the camera set up to record everything this year. as soon as he heard them he hot-footed it downstairs to get it on. These memories we will cherish forever, a picture can only capture so much joy, video footage captures all. Everyone delighted with their gifts I made a start on breakfast. This year we decided on pancakes, bacon and maple syrup, yummers. We sat down and thoroughly enjoyed it all.


Next was the mammoth task of clearing the wrapping paper and getting ready to head to my mums. Every year around midday we all arrive ready for Christmas number 2. My mum as standard has enough snacks to fill a small army. We nibble and open gifts. It normallly takes over an hour as my mum is a stckler for tradition and we all take it in turn to open a gift each. The day at mums finishes with teh stanadrd Chrsitmas lunch. Where we all even te adults dont know wehn to stop eating ha. We all finish and look like we have food babies the best of lunches the one I long for all year round. Also the one that doesnt taste the same at any other time of year (yes im odd)

The Rest Of the Day

We headed home this year around 4pm. We all needed a rest and I for one was so full I couldnt wait to get in my pj’s. The rest of the day was spent watching TV, relaxing and eating more (im not sure how I even manged this). Another year has passed and another successful Santa visit. All happy and really thats all that matters.


This year for some reason my mid kept thinking of people who dont have anything. The eldery alone, children who dont have much to open and parents who cant afford to give their children the Christmas that they want. 2 days later and its still in the forefront of my mind. I will throughout this year think of ways that I can help someone next year. We all deserve to enjoy our days.

    We have had a wonderful Christmas but I also have thought of those who have less and wondered what life is like for them and we have actively looked for ways to help. I hope you have a great new year.

    It was my first Christmas with my puppy and since getting married in September so we had a simp day together, just the three of us. I would love to volunteer next year, like yourself my mind wandered to those without and seeing all the excess that comes with Christmas isn’t my cup of tea.
