It was the night before Christmas and we had visitors!! The Reeves were in town and spent the evening with us! It is quite amazing to think that it barely seems five minutes since Emma, Stuart and Laura were babies. Christmas eve was spent at one or other of our houses. The toddlers used to get so excited so we had to resort to Rod going outside and ringing some jingle bells. The kids then shot upstairs got into our bed and snuggled down , just in case Santa might be tempted to pass them by.
So time has moved on 23 years, same cast of people, with the welcome addition of baby Bobbie, who is nine months old, just a little too young to understand fully what is going on!
Beth has a real knack with the little ones, so she came into her own, entertaining Bobbie, who was as good as gold. She spent the whole evening being passed from one to another without as much a s a whine or a moan!
Hunny has a new bed which she has taken to straight away. She wasn't even bothered when Bobbie got up close to her!
Hunny was not going to move, whatever!
Christmas morning this year was very laid back, no one wanted to get up, there wasn't that frantic get up out of bed you have with little children, none the less we had fun opening our presents and getting the dinner ready.
