We had a new Christmas Elf to hand out the presents this year. He was enthusiastic, in giving: in receiving and opening:and happy to help everyone else open theirs, too:At one stage he was literally jumping up and down and squealing while Simon took some new trucks out of their packaging. We got him a toddler's digital camera, as he loves looking at the photos on ours. His photography skills are best described as original! But since he's happy just looking at what has been taken (and we take some recognisable ones for him), that doesn't matter.
Eleanor was much more laid-back about the whole thing, and looked beautiful in her smocked dress.
She loved the new cuddly toys she received - the panda from us, plus an elephant, Spot and a frog.We also finally got a photo of the 4 generations of girls; Gran, Mummy, Me and Eleanor.
And some rare photos of me with James and Eleanor!
Interestingly, I have blogged Christmas the day I undecorated the tree! Amazingly, I even did it the day you're supposed to; the 12th and final day of Christmas!
