Tuesday, 24 December 2013: Two Hundred and Sixty Seven Days Old.
My little family and I have had a lovely, first, Christmas Eve together.
After a slow and relaxing morning, Hubby and I dressed Ayla in her Christmas onesie and the three of us set out with a car full of presents.
We spent the afternoon catching up with a few close friends, dropping in to see them at home, give them a gift and of course a last minute Merry Christmas kiss on the cheek.
Ayla was spoiled with love, not to mention the presents, and Hubby and I welcomed the chance to spend a few hours with some of the special people who make up our pseudo “family”.
It was late by the time we got home though so it wasn’t long before Ayla was tucked away in bed… her first Christmas Eve.
Once Ayla was sound asleep, Santa was quick to arrive! He dropped off some presents and filled Ayla’s stocking right to the brim before polishing off a slice of ginger ripple cake.
Eek! I can hardly wait for tomorrow!
Not just for the excitement of Ayla first Christmas, but because we’re so lucky to have each other and we have so much to be happy about.
And, I know our little house will be filled with all the things that matter most at Christmas time; love, happiness, peace, joy and family.
