our family life, our way

Our Huntered Christmas

on December 26, 2012

This year saw us move 5 hours away from our family due to the hubster’s new job. As if I haven’t told you that many times already.

So we are what’s known locally as an “orphan family”. Of which there are many, many, many in this area. We had offers to spend the day with other families, but chose to be just us this year. We did talk my mother in law into coming to stay for a few days prior to Christmas. Which was fabulous. The joke is that we’re not meant to like each other, but I was blessed with a lovely MIL.

At 5am, I was still half asleep, so didn’t get actually get many photos of the kids opening their pressies! No Mother of the Year award for me. They were happy with their haul though, guitar accessories, Lego (boy and girl), clothes, cash, chocolates, all that good stuff! And by 7:15 (am) I was napping on the lounge!

We’ve had a lovely Christmas in spite of being away from everyone. Like every household, we’ve had bit of toys spread over several rooms. And our bins are overflowing. And we’ve eaten plenty of food!

Now to eat leftover ham and turkey for the next two days.

How was your Christmas?

    Sounds like a lovely few days. Our kids got very spoilt, just quietly so did their mummy. Igot lots ofcuddles with my little man. We had a beautiful breakfast at my brothers with the family then came home for a relaxing day of the kids playing their ipods….lol and jumping on pogo sticks. Today is going to be a board game kind of day, its cold and rainy! Have a beautiful day!

    Kids are never too old for toys! Masters 18, 16, & 15 all had water guns and water bombs in their stockings – “the best presents ever” was their response!
