On Boxing Day we had our second Christmas lunch with Nana and Grandad - before heading over to my mum's house to see Auntie K and Uncle J. B was delighted to get another Mega Zord - and M spent the evening zapping everyone and everything with her new sonic lipstick. The Dr Who time travel chocolate game (Dr Who and chocolate in one game!) proved a great hit!
Christmas cuddles with Auntie K
The next day we caught up with Auntie P, my cousin G and little JD. We had bought him an aqua draw set - but I think M and B enjoyed it even more than he did.B and JD in a rare motionless moment.
Yesterday we managed to get over to Liverpool to see cousins S and C. Several mad games of 'Chase the monster' and 'Hide and Seek' followed....
Happy cousins with big friend R
In the evening we were back at my mums with Great Auntie M, Uncle C and cousin L. M was over the moon to get a signed DVD of the ChuckleBrothers (she is very into autographs ATM). We had a good time trying out the Dalek Operation game (Auntie K needs practice...) - and several games of Twister had M in a state of collapse.

Of course tea had to wait until after the eagerly expected Dr Who special - M was entranced and B was scared of 'the man in the box' - perfect!
M trying out new clothes from Auntie G - and showing off her beloved Nutcracker.
The pile of presents from Santa was rapidly attacked - fortunatly the clever elves had colour coded the wrapping paper!
M was delighted with her camera, Zelda game for her DS and a brilliant pop up Dr Who book
B got his long awaited Power Ranger Lion Zord - and was also delighted to get a big box of Yu-gi-oh cards (thank you Ifa the elf!)
There is a smile hiding behind all the fringe!
"Yay - We have this book at school!"
Yet another photographer joins the family!
After a late lunch at Frankies and Benny's (M and D love their fries!) - we popped round to see my Mum and Dad and then MiL and FiL. Auntie J came round for a lovely evening (brightened by her good test results) - of present wrapping and induldging in watching the 100 best musicals show on TV.
A good day.
M just loves ordering her own hot chocolate...
... and I feel the same way about coffee!

This evening it was the Candlelight Carol Service. M was singing in the Junior Choir, A with the adults. The new chandeliers and candles (an IKEA star buy) looked great.

Last time round I played the Cat, but this time I had to cover for our friend G who has had surgery, and so I took on the opening Mouse's Tale.

M's list for Father Christmas includes two games for her DS, a china fairy doll and a blue hat and scarf.
M and B had a great time - wandering round spending money on yet more toys and games. B was delighted to win the treasure hunt game, and M bagged the china doll she had been eyeing up all week.
