My favourite time of the year as we usually have so much fun. Like I previously mentioned Holly (Elf on a Shelf wannabe) came to visit on the 1st and she stayed until the 25th. Jamie really enjoyed her antics this year and was sad when she left. He regularly reads the letter “she” left behind.
Christmas tradition in the Aukett-family is a braai with the in-laws. We usually stayed up and opened our pressies at midnight, but since we have little kiddies in the house we do it after dinner and dessert. Jamie, Shae and their cousin was really so excited to open their presents. Santa brought Jamie the Hot Wheels Dinosaur track he so much wanted and Shae got a walker. Some fab pressies from their oumie and uncle too.
Christmas morning Jamie & Shae gets to open their pressies from me and their daddy. Aunty B also left a little something special for them. Spoilt is an understatement
Later that morning we went over to my parents house where we usually have lunch. My two sisters and their families were there too, unfortunately my brother were only able to visit the next week. The kiddies had even more presents to open, the lucky little fishes! We all made a ton of food and had way too much to eat, but it was a lovely lunch with loved ones.
Blessed out of our socks to have spent Jamie’s 5th Christmas with him and Shae’s very first. Was a very, very special time!
