I have oft said that I try not to let blogging get in the way of life. Time with the family is never compromised by sitting writing a post about what we are doing. We blog about our family life. We don't live to blog after all.
Instead, I prefer to enjoys the moments, albeit often with a camera by my side.
Christmas was no different. It is now mid-January and I have only just found a moment to write about our festive season.
Is it too late? Do you still want to see the pictures? Do you care if we had turkey and pigs in blankets and homemade chocolate ice-cream? The sensory overload that caused a Natty meltdown is long forgotten. So, I'll keep it brief. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
I hope you all had a happy and healthy Christmas too, and made yourselves a tonne of memories. That's what it's all about after all...
