Christmas photos

It's been a while since I last posted and, if I'm honest, things have been a bit more hectic round here than we're used to ;o).  Christmas has come and gone and I'm about ready to take down the decorations, get everyone back to work and try and get back into some sort of routine. 
 As you can imagine, Alice was a very big part of our Christmas this year. You may remember this little outfit which was bought before she was born  - she did get to wear it on Christmas morning :o) .
 Like last year, we were happy to have Hugh's girlfriend, Sarah, with us on Christmas Eve and to open presents early on Christmas morning. I can only imagine she doesn't mind the early morning wake up call from Emily, otherwise she wouldn't have come to stay again this year!
Claire, Craig, Sarah and Hugh
 Emily had been awake since 2.15am but was very good and didn't wake the others until 5.30am. I think we started opening presents around 6.30am.

Emily was very happy to receive a Kindle this year. 
And an Owl City hoodie (one of her favourite bands) which I thought would be way too big but actually looks nice and comfy!
 Family photo of Alice's first Christmas
 Can you believe she will be 6 weeks old tomorrow!!
And finally, a photo of Great Grandma and Alice, taken on Boxing Day.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that 2011 will be a good year for all!


  1. Looks like you had a great christmas,Rhona....even if it did start a bit early....our kids are up after us these days!!

  3. My first comment wouldn't post, so I'll try again. Hopefully you won't end up with two.

    I'm not surprised that Christmas was delightful at your house this year. I love Alice's Boxing Day dress! She just gets cuter and cuter!

  4. Looks like a lovely, happy family Christmas with all those smiling faces!

  5. What a fun Christmas with a new baby!! And the baby is adorable and her clothes are so darn cute.

    Happy New Year!

  6. 5.30am was being good?! It would not go down well with me if The Children tried to get me up at that time!!

    The Doctor got a Kindle for Christmas, and he loves it :-)
