My apologies to "Nanc'" and a few others whom I know are not so kid-centric as I can be, but we sure had a fabulous couple of days with my precious little ones - well, up to and including the teen-ager.
Christmas Eve was time with the two littlest ones. Such fun and they really are so easily amused and entertained.
The big one moved on, as her mother had predicted, with new rain boots and an umbrella. No eyes were poked out (as my mother always warned) but it was a bit of duck and dodge with the sides.
Then early on Christmas morning we headed south, (with weather less dreadful than predicted)
Caro left behind a Christmas parcel which we opened and had a really good laugh,
