This is the first year that both boys have understood what’s going on. The excitement was thick in the air.

They both slept in until a very surprising 6.30 and then came into our room. We somehow managed to hold them back from Santa’s presents until the Grandparents arrived.

They were so excited. It was a lovely day all around.

And just when they thought everything was opened, S1 brought out two giant presents, handmade lego mats for the two of them to keep al their lego in. Such a loving gift from their doting Mum.

Then lunch with the grandparents and S1’s brother. Onto dinner with S1’s wider Whanau.

What a lovely day all around. Just like family Christmas’s should be.
