Now we have always done what we call Christmas Day No2. This is usually Boxing day when we have the grandchildren over here and they get their presents from our side of the family. We started it to give my daughter a break and allowed the children to be on a high slightly longer.But this year as it fell on a Saturday and I work weekends then we postponed it until Monday.
We planned this time to split the day into two parts, the first part mainly about the gruesome twosome, we did this for two reasons, one as Dinky is not comfortable up here and tends to cling for the first while, but I knew with a houseful of people she would not settle too well, and secondly as Fifi had a sleepover the night before and it saved her having to get here too early.
So DD3 picked up Bob and the twins on her way by their door and walked up with them Their wee faces were a picture when they saw the pile of presents, they have well and truly got the hang of this unwrapping lark.
Here are some of the pictures in no specific order of the day. You will notice in just about every one of these that Dinky is clinging onto Bob.

So that was the twins fed and changed and DD3 took them back down the road while DD2 went to pick up Fifi from her sleepover while I went and dealt with the next stage of the dinner. So when we were all reassembled we started on the present opening for the big people.

Have to say they got some fab presents, four very fortunate children! We had a lovely meal with everybody contributing something towards it, and by the time this was over Bob had had enough and was getting tearful. A lovely day was had by all. Roll on next year.
