We had the most wonderful Christmas Day. I, of course, went totally overboard with presents. But it was so worth it to see the look on Chloe's face in the morning. She loved her presents and I really enjoyed seeing her play with them. I didn't wrap her presents this year as, firstly, she would struggle to unwrap them, and secondly, I am teaching her not to rip the pages in books. So to tell her to rip paper would confuse her.
Neil came and spent an hour with Chloe in the morning and then he left and we had lunch. Every year we have an elderly lady called Pat for Christmas Dinner. Pat is well into her 80's and used to live across the road from us with her husband, Les. Then about 5 years ago Les died and, as they have no children, we invited her to dine with us. And she has been coming every year since then.
So we had a good feed and then Pete's girlfriend Amanda came round with her Mommy. Amanda's Daddy died a couple of months ago and so this was their first Christmas without him and I think they found it very difficult. So it was good for them to get out of the house and round to see us.
Well this is quite a short post but I've put up some pictures.
