It may come as a surprise (it certainly did to me!) that I took barely any photos over the festive period. On Christmas day itself I took just two photos; one of Aria and the obligatory Christmas dinner photo, of course! As much as I love capturing memories with photos sometimes it really is nice to put the camera down.
I cooked the Christmas dinner myself this year, kinda. My parents did the sprouts, gravy and stuffing and I did the rest. I am useless at making gravy. The dinner was delicious, almost stress free (until right at the very end when I lost my shit) and ready five minutes before my estimated time – I’m quite proud of that one!
Aria really needs to work on her camera skills, still, she enjoyed pretending to take photos on Christmas day while dressed in her new Anna outfit.
Unfortunately we didn’t have a white Christmas, but we did have a lovely snowfall shortly before Christmas, which Aria missed as she had a stomach bug!
Dobby and Earl made the most of the snow fun!
Thankfully Aria’s sickness bug cleared up in plenty of time for her to attend her playschool Christmas party, which she was quite excited about!
Aria loved decorating the Christmas tree, and taking everything back off again, all the time…
I forced Spencer to wear matching pyjamas again, he forced a smile, again.
It was all a bit too much for Dobby!
We had the most amazing Christmas making magic and memories, and I really hope that you did too!
