When I started this blog, I had no idea what would happen or how it would pan out half a year later. It's been a great platform to put photos away from Facebook, and a photographic memoir of my daughter's first year. I have big plans for summer 2013, that is next summer, not this one, which are still super-secret (even from the other half) that I hope will help me help other people; something I am quite passionate about.
It's been seen here that I am an incredibly lazy person and I want that to change in 2013 but I think I'll need a shove for that to go down. I think I'll take each day as it comes and perhaps not look too much at the greater picture. I think that may be the problem I have.
Right, enough about me and my resolutions and on to Christmas!
As you may or may not know this week just gone we had Christmas! It was a sweltering hot which was a somewhat unpleasant edge on the day, but it was a good day nonetheless. I think the children enjoyed the day and they're still playing with each one of their gifts nearly a week later so that must account for something.
Onwards with the long photo list of
|The girl all ready for the day. She spent maybe an hour in that|
dress before it got way too hot. At least I got this photo, eh?
|Blurry lights! Like the ones you'd see in a movie. So I guess this|
doesn't have the same effect being a static image.
|The tree as seen from our hall. It's actually quite large and our|
lounge isn't big enough to give a total view. So instead you
get a partial view of our lounge in which there happens to be
a bit of Christmas tree in it.
|The boy opening his first present of the day. He doesn't have|
strong reactions to gifts (he's a lot like me in that respect. Hard
to get a gauge on if I like something based on my initial reaction),
but he normally likes whatever he's given.
|Still opening (also, it's a chair, by the way). A red chair.|
|The haul minus my stuff. I don't think that's everything, there|
is probably other stuff floating around. They're very spoilt.
|Proof of how beautiful the weather was. No rain here.|
|I told him his Batman suit needed to dry (he got water gun water all|
over it) so he is now running around without clothing. Nothing at all.
Common practice for young children. Trust me.
|Still waiting for his suit to dry, and it was getting cold so fully|
dressed and still running around.
It was a magical day. Nothing quite like seeing your kid really love something you give them (even if it isn't a mind-blowing reaction upon opening).
And on that note, have a safe and happy New Year. Make 2013 your year! Cha!
