The Tree 2009, and Happy New Year!!

This year is the second year that Emma helped to decorate the tree. Last year she got bored when she spied the bubble wrap which some of the baubles had been wrapped in. This year, she got a bit sidetracked with the tinsel and then with 'Elf' which was on the telly in the background, so there was a lot of prompting, and I finally finished the tree on my own! Emma chose her own bauble this year, a funny reindeer with dangly legs. We were in Debenhams choosing, and gave her the option: 'do you want to choose a nice bauble or a funny one?'. Unsurprisingly she chose a funny one! It will be fun to see the annual bauble choice change over the years as she gets older.

Here is Emma opening some pressies on Christmas morning and eating her breakfast yogurt with her Christmas cracker hat on, surrounded by her new little pony family. Lovely.

Happy New Year, whatever you are doing, see you in 2010!
