I guess our little Christmas started with a visit from some good friends. They were galavanting off to Italy for their holidays. The wee man got to open his first Christmas present and we are now firm Lego fans!
Christmas Eve mummy decided to bake some gingerbread cookies. I got the recipe from wee mans peppa pig Christmas magazine of all places. He had so much fun doing helping out that it might be a new Christmas tradition. Actually it was very much a family effort. Never mind that I discovered rather belatedly that we did not have any ginger! I did have Christmas themed cookie cutters though! They tasted very yummy if I don't say so myself.
As hubby is Italian we like to eat fish on Christmas Eve. He was in the kitchen all evening and turned out a wonderful meal for mummy!
Christmas morning there was no delay in opening the presents. Once the wee man got the hang of it there was no stopping him. Thankfully he still does not get the whole Santa thing except that he goes Ho Ho Ho.
We went to Church on Christmas morning so we left the cooking till the wee man had a nap. We decided to wait till after wee man's nap to have a family Christmas tea which turned out really great. It was nice to be sat at the table together tucking in!
It really was a happy and merry Christmas. We were small in numbers but our hearts were full.
