Christmas Day - warning long post!

What a Christmas!!!! Both Aimee and myself got the sickness bug AGAIN, on Christmas Eve, poor Steve had to do all the preparation for Christmas Day, veg prepping, last minute present wrapping, sorting out Santa things. And then on Christmas Day, Aimee and myself dragged ourselves downstairs, I plonked myself on the couch and didn't move for hours, watched the girls open their presents, opened mine, took some photos and then promptly curled up and went back to sleep. Again it was left to Steve to do all the preparations for Christmas Day Lunch. Aimee and I managed a little of the Christmas Lunch which was beautiful! Aimee tried to get into the festive mood, but she really wasn't able. She loved all the presents she got, but played on her DS the most as that took up less energy. She did feel a little better towards the evening and even played on the DS for a while and tried on her Mermaid costume. Then that was it, she fell asleep on the couch, Steve had to lift her up to bed. I feel soo sorry for her but she was a trooper never complained all day!!! I didn't take my usual 100 photos of the girls opening presents but did manage to get a few .....

I loved how our lounge looked this year, thanks to some of the decorations that June (Steve's mum) had given us as she didn't have room to take them back to Georgia with her.


This is the first year we have bought the girls a combined gift, so it was turn taking in opening it, I wonder what it could be????

By the looks of it the girls liked, "Santa" got them a Wii!!

"Santa" sure deserved this treat after all the hard work he done on Christmas Eve.

A mermaid costume, I think she liked, LOL

MMMh the saying daughters like fathers comes to mind!!!! New DS games!

Aimee's first calendar, Tinkerbell and her friends!

As you can see by this photo Aimee wasn't really able to play, and just had a go, soon after she was all snuggled back up on the couch! I decided to let the girls stay in their pj's all day, as I was staying in mine and we weren't going anywhere and no visitors were calling!

Not so much effort was needed for the car racing game, so Aimee enjoyed this a little more

The girls got Skye this jumper for Christmas, as you can see by some of the photos she was not impressed, lol!! She tried to rip if off 5 mins after taking these photos!

Aimee placing Baby Jesus into the crib.

Aimee did brighten up towards the evening and tried on her Mermaid costume

The girls all tired out, not surprising with all the illness we have had leading up to Christmas!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and didn't stuff themselves too much!
