Sunday – Bit of a lazy day today. The boys caught up on their Lego advent calendar and we watched a festive movie in our pj’s. After lunch we took the boys to the cinema to watch Frozen which was really good and both boys sat and watched it all which for Jenson, at 2 1/2 , was amazing!
Monday – it was Christmas party morning at playgroup today and here is Jenson making his christingle. When I was a child we had sweets on ours (dolly mixture) but his had raisins!! The playgroup out on a lovely festive buffet and each child was given a buable too which for £1 entry is such good value and very generous of them I think.
Tuesday – Jenson and i popped into town this morning to buy a few more presents and to meet Granma for a hot chocolate special at Costa. We popped into the shopping centre to see Santa’s Grotto, not the man himself just the grotto, as every year a new display is on show. Jenson enjoyed seeing the puppets.
Wednesday – Jenson did not feel very well today, he just wasnt himself. At 12pm he asked to sit on my lap and then fell aslepe on me until 2.40pm when I had to wake him up for the school run! No lunch, cup of tea or toilet for me for more than two hours! I love seeing him sleep on me though, takes me back to when he was a baby.
Thursday – Jenson was better today although he now has a cold! He spent last night with me as he kept waking up, coughing and bringing up plegm! We stayed in again today and at 2pm we went to see Burton and his school’s carol performance at the chuch. Then we were able to bring Burotn home and that is his last day now until 6th January – yaaay! We popped over to see Granma as she has put her tree up which has a train go around it which the boys love to watch.
Friday – No school run this morning hurrah! This afternoon I had 7 of Burton’s school friends and their siblings come over for a festive play date and everyone behaved themselves which was lovely. I made too much food as always! The boys made some festive ginger biscuits for it, and they loved being able to cut out the shapes.
Saturday – no swimming this morning as that is over now until the new year. Burton made some more Christmas cards and Jenson ‘helped’ before getting fed up and went to play with monkey!. Grandma and Grandad came to see us this afternoon and brought the boy’s step cousins over so they all had fun playing before eating left overs from yesterday’s party food.
