Lily and Emma woke up at a fairly respectable 7.45am this morning and since I was already awake they both came into our room to open stockings. Lily opened Emma's stocking first and then her own. She was rather enamoured of the harmonica Father Christmas left her. The rest of us were slightly less thrilled!
Tom woke up about half an hour later and opened his stocking downstairs. The Podlings were keen to get on and open their bigger presents, so we let them open a few before stopping for a big family breakfast. We are all staying with Mark's parents over Christmas and his brothers and their ladies came for a lovely cooked breakfast. The main present opening came after we'd eaten. Father Christmas was very generous to the Podlings this year...they must have been very good!
Emma had no idea that the pretty parcels had anything in them, but she did appreciate the lovely obstacle course someone had placed under the Christmas tree!
'When can I open my presents?'
