So I hope you all had a wonderful, blessed and very fun day yesterday for Christmas Day, celebrating the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ!
Mine was crazy, but wonderful all the same! (being pregnant I was double tired!)
Elijah's first Christmas and what an exciting time. Unfortunately he went back to bed right in the middle of opening presents, poor little tike couldn't keep his little eyes open any longer, but he did get to 'open' a couple of gifts first (and we opened the others, he is only 7 months anyway). Did manage to get a few cute pics of him throughout the day - in all his presents having a grea time - mainly with the paper - and in his custom-fixed (paperclip job) christmas hat! so cute!
We all got spoilt! My gorgeous husband bought me a beautiful big cross necklace with cubic zirconias in it (he said he could have got diamonds but the cross was so small, but I'm happy with this gorgeous one I have!) He even hid it in a ultrasonic jewelery cleaner he got to go with it - and to clean my rings and glasses too. From my babies I got a bottle of perfume - Still by JLo. I haven't had a real perfume in ages, so its nice to feel pampered! I also got another perfume - Echo Woman - from my sisters. And some clothes, shoes, books - what else could a girl want for Christmas I say! Thoroughly spoilt rotten by my beautiful family :)
We started at church, and I did the christmas message this year. First time I've really done anything like that but I stayed in my comfort zone and did a kids story that the adults enjoyed too :) Apparently I did ok, so I'm glad of that!
We had a great lunch and afternoon at my parents house. My sister and her boyfriend were slaving away in the kitchen from 8am cooking a yummy roast turkey and many other treats. Always eat so much on Christmas! Unfortunately I was sick last Friday so I don't think I (my stomach!) was quite back to my normal self, so didn't eat as much as I might have normally - which is probably a good thing!
As a first ever for me, we spent the evening with friends! We took the long walk a few houses down the street to our friends Marty and Melinda's and just had a chill-out relazing evening, a few left-overs and great company. I bought Greg the game Cranium so we played a round of that too. The kids had a ball playing around and Jai wa still wide awake at 10.30pm when we came home - sooo late for him - needless to say he slept in till 7:40am this morning!
This afternoon we are having friends around for a relaxing BBQ and games afternoon! So I better shoot off and clean this dump up!
Merry Christmas to you all!
