We have had some serious fun in our house over the holidays.
With a house full of children we have tried to make it as fun as possible.
On the night before Christmas we put all the kids to bed in our rumpus room, tucked them in, talked to them sternly about going to sleep and gave them instructions about what time they could come out on Christmas morning and closed the door.
Then as adults we went giggling into the lounge room to get the surprise 'Santa' ready to pay the kids a visit. We were so thankful that Uncle Alex stepped up to take on the Santa role and I have to say he was a natural ~ minus the grey hair of course!
check out those naughty or nice Santa eyes!
the preparation walk ~ taking the role seriously
the kids reaction was priceless! you look like Uncle Alex!
The Santa talk.
All the kids went off to sleep dreaming of presents and the wisdom of Santa.
With the reminder to be good and rewards will follow.
