Party Time!

One of my favourite days of the year…our family Christmas get together. It was almost a full house, except my Auntie and Uncle who run a B&B in Wales, were unable to make it as my Uncle was not well enough to travel – such a shame but we hope to go and visit them around Easter time.

Its always a great evening, my Uncle organised the usual ‘treasure hunt’ for the children, although I must say this years clues were VERY challenging – even for the adults!! It always starts with a giant Christmas cracker, filled with goodies, then he gives each child in turn cryptic clues which lead to more cryptic clues and then eventually their reward which is usually a lovely little gift and a cash prize!!

We had an added surpise this year of a visit from Santa, who arrived with a sack full of pressies for the children and a tin of chocolates for the adults!

The girls made a ‘sleigh’ a pulled the baby of the family round the house!

After clearning away the buffet, the adults gathered round the huge table for a game of cards, in honour and memory of my Nan – who loved to get a good game of cards going! I miss her terribly xx

Then its a gathering round the Christmas tree to exchange presents and after Christmas hugs and good wishes, we all head off home with very tired, but happy children 🙂
