Y4 - 87/365: Boxing Day
Since Em & Daz spent Christmas this year with Daz's mom & family, we saved our exchanges for the kids for Boxing Day since we'd all be at Josie & David's again together. Ryan and Amy happily opened their presents, each of them receiving a cushy armchair of their own, which they wasted no time in trying out.
Ryan was so fortunate this Christmas to have so many people think of him. He also had gifts off his honourary Grandad, Mick (Daz's dad) and Daz's sister, Nicola, together with her partner and little girl. These were totally unexpected, but very much appreciated.
I would have to say the best bits of this holiday season, thus far, were the extra bits of time we could all spend together as a family, and of course, the delicious food! Yum!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
