Monty the cat often joins us when we have cereal for breakfast and tries to sneak a lick of the milk from Isla and Evie's bowls.
We had a few walks around and about:
Isla spotted a rhino shape on the pavement:
Isla and Evie loved having their cousins to play with on Saturday:
On Sunday we went to Granny Margaret and Grandad David's house. Isla and Evie were lucky to receive their Christmas presents and open them up early. They also enjoyed eating chocolates from the Christmas tree and running about in the garden.
We visited the animals and park at the garden centre. Evie made friends with a friendly cockerel and Isla liked the slide.
We spotted a train coming as we were on the railway bridge. The train driver spotted us too and waved back at Isla which was very exciting!
We headed across to Granny Ilene, Grandpa Alan and Uncle Peter's house to continue our festivities after a brief stop at home to open some of the presents from Uncle Ian and Aunty Lucy.
On Christmas Eve we helped Grandpa pick up the turkey from the shop and then went to the best park in the world.
Granny, Andrew and Isla put together the gingerbread house. Then we sat down and ate it!
Isla and Evie put out a glass of sherry, some shortbread and a carrot for Santa and his reindeer and then went up for some sleep. The next morning it was Christmas!! Evie and I were up first. Then Isla, Andrew and Peter woke up and we all went to see the presents under the tree. Isla and Evie were very excited to see what Santa had brought them and that the sherry and shortbread had gone, but a little bit of carrot remained. They opened up their presents together with Isla helping Evie to open hers quite a bit!
