We told the kids they could get up no earlier than 5am on Christmas day to open their stockings, and Mum and Dad couldn't be persuaded to come any earlier than 8am for the main present opening!
Dad read us a testimony from a local ward newsletter, which was lovely, then Harry read us a scripture from Isaiah, which he had read out in Sacrament Meeting at church the week before.
B efore I had some lemon curd
I heard a bird
R unning towards it it didn't fly off
D id I hear it cough?
He is still big on birds at the moment, and while perhaps not the best poetry known to man, I'm so glad he is being creative!!
After the younger kids were in bed, we watched the Downton Abbey Christmas Special (though Dan read a Calvin and Hobbes book which I got from a charity shop for 95p), then spent another night staying up very late talking and laughing with Katy and Dan. I think our average bedtime this holiday was about 1am!
A thoroughly enjoyable Christmas!!
