The day that was

I hope everyone has had a lovely few days even if you don't do Christmas I am sure it has been nice being at home? Busy woke at 545am I had been in bed with her as I was summoned during the night. I woke up 30 secs before her and she went from soundly sleeping to sitting upright yelling"it's Christmas!"She was most excited that Santa had eaten his vegemite sandwich and the reindeer's had chewed on the carrots. She got the wand and socks she had asked santa for and loads of craft stuff (naturally) plus some dress ups:
Which she is not really that keen on and I had to beg her to try on when our mates were over, because she looks so cute in them ( she is being a scary lion above)
The dress- ups were $4 each at a school fete. I like them more than she does.
After everything was opened there was a big sigh " I didn't get my trampoline" tears welling in her eyes... we took her outside just to check,  she saw it and just started screaming - it was so funny- I have never seen her that excited!
It poured with rain until about 1pm she kept checking outside to make sure it was still there. Finally the rain stopped and she has been jumping ever since. We had friends over for dinner and it was really nice. Oh and I got a tripod for my camera, some money and book vouchers, Yay!
 Did you have a lovely day? Eat to much?

    Christmas with little ones is so much more the sweeter.
    Miss 12 still claims to believe...but for how much longer?????? Even she said it didn't feel much like Christmas this year.
    Looking back at past years photos helped to restore some of the spirit!

  13. Lovely new header! I love your tree, so pretty and colorful and the critter next to it is adorable. What an amazing surprise for Busy! I would love to get one for Pony Girl, I think it would do wonders, alas - I think it rains a bit too much here to make all that practical. So glad you had a nice day of it. We did as well, and yes, much too much to eat :)

  14. He he he. My kids haven't stopped bouncing since we got ours 3.5 years ago. BEST PRESSIE EVER!

  15. What a fabulous day, I love your tree and whoohoo for the trampoline...
