Merry Christmas

Today has been a non stop festive Christmas Day. From waking at 7am to put the turkey in to cook, having to coax Seren out of bed to go see the presents Santa has brought her.. Lol, to enjoying seeing the girls faces when the opened their gifts, to scramble to make our Christmas meal. And Skyping my children and family back in Wales, and now, where I can finally sit down and appreciate the day, while nursing a pulled back :( But that's another story. 

Today is the day we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and what a splendid day it is. It has been snowing here in Madison, WI all day and is adding on to the snow that still lies on the ground. What a difference in weather from here and what the weather would have been like in the time of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. 

As a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, we do celebrate the birth of our Savoir, Jesus Christ and in the spirit of giving service and love, we invited our missionaries over to partake of our Christmas Meal with us. 

Here are some cute Christmas messages to watch - HERE

We shared a lovely typical 'British Christmas Dinner' which is served at lunch time, not in the evening. Which consisted of Turkey, mashed potato, carrots, peas, broccoli, roasted potatoes, carrots & parsnips also homemade bread Thyme, Rosemary & Sage Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce and Gravy!! Phew oh yeah for dessert yet another typical British dessert - Trifle (minus any alcohol) ...mmmm scrumptious. We also pull Christmas Crackers
Seren bless her, slept through her Christmas Meal, yet Carys tucked into hers...and ended up eating 3 bowls of my Stuffing !!

I pray that you all have had a wonderful Christmas, whether you're Religious or not. May you share in the joy and laughter that comes with this wonderful day

Merry Christmas to you all.

Yeah presents. Carys, has such good manners, every time she pulled off a piece of wrapping paper and handed it to Jason, she said, 'Thank You', how adorable.

Thank you daddy for my Cinderella dress & doll

Thank you Santa for my Merida doll and her horse, Angus - oh and Jodi for my Merida dress ( which she had for her birthday)
