Here are some of our pictures from the festive period.
Before Christmas, Grandpa and Noreen came up to visit…
…and Ben made friends with a snowman at his nursery.
On Christmas Day, we got the important stuff done – opening presents and eating food! Jana won the competition to keep her hat on the longest.
One of Ben’s favourite toys was his Hot Wheels track…
… while Ellie had great fun making stories from her Story Cubes.
This winter was also memorable for some freak weather. First there was the six hours I got stuck in a snowstorm driving home from work.
Then there were the Peebles floods, which got reported on the BBC News. Here’s my own photo (the river got even higher than this).
But the good news was it snowed on Christmas Day! – late on, and not very much, but enough to create a mini winter wonderland for us on Boxing Day.
