Christmas Eve

My very favourite day of the year - so full of promise and excitement and anticipation.


We decided to try to make it amazing for the kids, and so we were up and out early. The morning was spent ice skating, followed by hot chocolate at Carluccio's and then a very small amount of last-minute Christmas shopping (I am normally very strict about present-buying - I hate the panic of leaving it late). It was a magical morning, and could well form the basis of a new tradition. T was just too small to navigate the ice, but was eager to try which led to some frustration. This time next year he'll be that bit more capable, although he did enjoy his hot chocolate and ended up covered.


This evening was spent wrapping the last few presents, until the massive present mountain was complete. It all looks so perfect, the house is quiet, we're a little tiddly and should really go to bed now. It's a big day tomorrow, and the scene will be very different indeed.


Oh, and I could not love A's letter to Santa any more - he wrote it in his best handwriting.
