“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.” Merry Christmas to all my lovely readers on this last Living Arrows post of 2020. On what has certainly been a different kind of Christmas, after a very different and somewhat complicated year. I do hope that you managed to find ways to connect with loved ones over the holidays.
A big thank you to Donna the host of Living Arrows. I have linked up with Donna for several years and haven’t missed one in the past 2 years. It’s been a lovely focus this year and I have enjoyed following others in the link up.
First up a few photos from the past Christmas week
On Christmas Eve we celebrated Daisy turning 12. The day always goes in a flash just like Christmas Day and I always feel that we may have not celebrated enough when she has to wait all year for it. As always she was happy and reassured us that she had a lovely day spent at home surrounded by us and her presents.
I managed to get two group pictures on Christmas Eve. The first one with all 6 of us was a challenge to take as the boy were fighting through the first few takes. I had to include evidence of what it’s like trying to get a family pic!
This pyjama photo below was taken around the time of putting out Santa’s plate and the reindeer food. The excitement was very high!
We had a wonderful roast turkey dinner cooked by Dougie. He really pulled out all the stops after swotting up on Jamie Olivers Christmas program a few times!
I love that we all dress up for the day. The boys looked very smart in their Christmas shirts and us girls in dresses/ skirts. Teddy even wore a bow tie. We were fortunate enough that my Mum is in our bubble and so she could join us for the day.
I can’t quite believe that this is the last living Arrows for 2020. I wasn’t quite prepared to write the last one and I suppose that is a good thing as I usually get pretty reflective and emotional, and would even more so this year.
Instead I’m going to end it with my pictures from our first Living Arrows of the year. They have made me want to visit the beach this week. I also can’t get over how much Finlay and Florence have grown in 12 months.
