Hope everyone had a fab christmas! The Beach household certainly did. Yesterday was spent catching up on sleep and today everyone is far more chilled!
Like a lot of the country we were so lucky to still have snow on the ground at christmas. In fact we still had seven inches so it really felt like a winter wonderland!
A few snaps I took last week playing in the snow in the park. No my mum isn't really that tall-she likes to think she is though!
I have a lot to catch up on this past week! last monday we visited are local national trust house which is decorated for Christmas. This year there were these beautiful reindeer in the grounds.
During last week we also took the obligatory photo of the children at christmas! this year including the disgruntled cat! ha ha!
The other cat meanwhile was getting in the festive spirit and helping himself to egg and soldiers!
The snow persisted right up to christmas day and the littlest brother had great fun pulling these off the guttering!
So Christmas eve dawned and we all stayed up till midnight to troop off to church in the snow for midnight mass. It was a lovely service, however the boys got rather hyper being up so late! It was an early start on christmas day at 7.00am! And yep I was up a good half an hour before that!
Santa had done a fab job and I got lots of lovely scrapbooky things as well as some clothes and chocolate! Santa has also added to by scrapbook book collection, so some more eye candy to look at!
Each year I try and make something for the table and this year everyone had their initial at their place
It was a lovely christmas lunch complete with make your own truffles!
My favourite present this year was this baby! It is incredible and I have already used up two rolls of film! Its a fisheye lomo camera so I can't wait to see what the results are like! The middle brother got a guitar and as he is somewhat of a musical genius has been serenading us having learnt in what two hours! Jealous much!
The littlest got what he has wanted for a very long time... I will just leave you with his adorable expression!
So a very happy Christmas over here! Back to revision now.. booh shucks! Hope everyone had a wonderful peaceful christmas!
