So Christmas Eve approached way to fast for me to catch up on my plans and my thoughts! I actually spent the whole day moping around because of the family I wouldnt be seeing today! Jemma is always fabulous in cheering me up! she really has a knack of knocking the sillyness out of me to make me see sense!
Anyway after a very long night! well Santa has to make sure all the little people are sleeping, the kids woke at 6.45am which I was amazed with and also very happy, I had the awful feeling I would be sitting beside the christmas tree at 5am!
we dont like turkey but had a 8.46lb organic Chicken all defrosted and ready to go, and OMG was it ever delicious Ergin did the cooking this year, I think he was happy to let me play with the kids for a while as I had worked so hard getting everything prepared! It does get a little hard when you have to buy for other people as well, so much less to worry about when family is local! Anyway the kids were so happy with thier presents, Yasmin opened all her's in about 10 seconds flat and thought every one had more than her because the others were taking thier time, it was actually quite funny! whats Christmas morning with out some one moaning, My Dad called and spoke to all the kids, it's nice to hear a voice from far away, then we had an amazing dinner, played a little more took some pictures, we wanted to get a family shot but Ceyda was sleepy so I put her to bed for a nap, maybe I'll get it later.
Well today I couldnt be more proud of my little family, they are the light of my life!
Hope everyone else is having a fabulous Christmas
