for some reason I cannot sleep.
I have been to sleep, I just cannot get back to sleep, so here I am posting in the early hours of the day.

I am sure it has something to do with the weird schedule have been keeping for the past week or so - staying up late finishing projects, watching movies etc. But last night I actually went to bed at a rather normal hour and I think I have now thoroughly confused my body. *sigh.*

I am notoriously bad at taking pictures on Christmas Day itself - so caught up in the action I always seem to forget to take pictures of the actual events. But here are a few.

This is one of all the presents wrapped up at 2 a.m. on Christmas morning.
My sweet man and I had a lovely "gift wrapping date" after the kids went to bed, which included watching Love Actually and drinking a bottle of wine while we wrapped gifts under the tree.
It was a lot of fun, despite the late hour, and we both agree it should become our new tradition.

and here is Miles opening the first one at 7:30 a.m.

I love the look on his precious face.

and here is Wylie, who was loving being "Santa" and handing out the gifts so much that we could barely get him to open his own gifts - a trend that continued at our next 2 Christmas's as well.

Christmas really is a lot of fun with kiddo's, I must say.


  1. Love your tree! It is great! Glad everyone had a great Christmas!
    Happy New Year!
    Hugs, Lisa

  2. What a beautiful tree! Hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas!

  3. this is so sweet and good for you to remember to get a pic of the "before". What a lovely tree and set up with the presents.
    Your children's faces are priceless!

  4. Your Christmas looks beautiful!

  5. Oh, I do love the idea of a gift wrapping date. Lovely, lovely.


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
