Christmas 2015

I’ve finally managed to find a little bit of time to post about our Christmas!

Hubby got up at 6am to start getting the turkey ready. He was back in bed by 7.30am at which point MissMostyn decided she would wake up. I looked after her and had some cuddles. Baby cuddles are the best! Little Miss got up 8am and she came through to our room to open her Santa prezzies.

Christmas morning
We then watched some Peppa Pig in bed. We hadn’t managed to open the Christmas Eve box so we opened that in bed as well.

We eventually got up and went to have some cereal – I kept finding bits of Cheerios all day! Hubby and I opened one present each at the kitchen table – I gave him a Sheffield Wednesday hoodie and he gave me this fab mug! Love it!!

At 11.30am the in laws (parents and brother) and BIL’s partner arrived. The partner could stay long as he was travelling home to his parents.

Whilst the girls were having cuddles and playing with Nain & Taid and their Uncle H, I went to help hubby prepare food. We had prepared the veg the night before so just needed to cook them all. We had less veg & side dishes than last year (17 last year!) this year we had

  • Stuffing
  • Cauliflower cheese (homemade)
  • Sausagemeat
  • Yorkshire puds
  • Croquettes
  • Carrot and swede mash (homemade)
  • Sprouts
  • Broccoli & cauliflower florets
  • Mashed potatoes (homemade)
  • Red cabbage
  • Roast potatoes (homemade)
  • Turkey
  • Gravy, cranberry sauce and bread sauce

Christmas Food

After lunch hubby went to have a lie down on the sofa with the girls whilst in laws and I tidied up – to be fair he did deserve a break!

Hubby and his wonderful food

Afterwards we opened presents. I want to thank everyone for being so generous! The girls he way too much! The eldest loved all the Thomas stuff she got but also pv ed playing with a pair of maracas that my friend gave her (must remember to thank her for that!).

Toys Galore!
Here’s some items I got from hubby – the Little Miss Blogger mug, Impractical Jokers t-shirt, Smash DVDs and The Birdcage on blu ray, Nashville season 3 soundtrack and finally the Red Dwarf hoodie*.

(* I bought the hoodie and a matching one for hubby as gifts from the girls to us)


We were supposed to go over to the in laws house for supper but the weather was awful and we didn’t want to take the girls out in it. So instead we had a lazy evening and both settled to bed easily – excitement of the day caught up with them!

How was your Christmas?
