In mid December, we went to our local Multiple Birth Association Christmas party. We didn’t take many pictures, too busy chatting, but here are some of Sal swimming with the boys.
Playing in the sand pit with new sand toys (from Nana). We did have a 3rd Christmas with Sal’s mum (Nana), sister (Aunty Shell) and her husband (Uncle Michael), but we were a little pictured out, and didn’t take any photos that day…. sorry.
Aunty Shell and Uncle Michael gave us a great shade umbrella for Christmas. We’ve already found it useful to create shade for the boys to play in their sandpit. A permanent shade cloth for that sandpit is a work in progress….. but so are a lot of things in this house (like mowing the lawn in this particular picture!)…. ha ha ha ha!!
Tracie, Sal, Ben and Ethan celebrated Christmas in our own home, just the 4 of us this year. It was a nice change.
We told the boys all about Santa for weeks leading up to Christmas, saw all the hype in the shops and around the neighbourhood and by the time Christmas was here, the boys were very excited for Santa to come!
On Christmas Eve, (while Sal was at work) Tracie and the boys made cookies for Santa. Then later (after Sal got home from work) we decorated them together.
Christmas morning….. Santa came (they must have been good boys this year)
Ethan was the first one up, and he was still a little tired, but very excited to see that Santa had been..Chocolate around his lips from his first taste of chocolate money – I think he ate about 10 that morning!
Benny woke up about 10-15 mins later…Checking out the stockings….. there’s presents in there!Boys help Mummy with her presentI LOVE my photo frame,,,, THANK YOU!!!!Back to the train table.Ben’s favourite toy….. Ethan’s piano!
Parking garage – a BIG hit!The alphabet game on the fridge. The boys did not know any letters before this game. Now (2 weeks later) they know about 3 letters each. They play with it every day. We haven’t really tried to teach them letters yet, they are just picking it up.
Christmas morning was great fun. We did a baked chicken and vegetables for lunch, and I ate too much!
Christmas afternoon I, (Sal) went to work, while Trace and the boys had a quiet afternoon at home playing with new toys.
