Our Everyday Life: Christmas Week

theodora ofosuhima paddington IMG_7664Week 52 was Christmas Week.

We arrived in London on the night of 22nd. The kids were doing alright, didn't seem to be bothered by jet lag. The following day we met our friends for just one hour in London. We took them to the Winter Wonderland fair. It was a busy affair, with all our suitcases and stayed an hour for a ride, chips and sausages. Our friends children are so friendly and not shy at all. Three super fun boys. The bus ride back home was successful without crying. TOI started to cry once we got into his grand father's car.

24-12 my mom arrived early in the morning, about 5:20, she was finding it hard to sleep due to her travel from USA. In the afternoon we went Christmas gift shopping. Back in October we all agreed to buy few essential and purposeful gifts. But in the end hubby and my mother both to many things. In the evening we got everything ready for Christmas Day.

25-12 In the morning the children opened their overfilled Christmas stockings. Later in the morning my mother and my brother joined us for lunch. We then exchanged our too many gifts. My daughter was taking her time to appreciate each gift but it wasn't possible because we had so many gifts to go through. The rest of the after was spent watching British Christmas classics like Blackadder.

26-12 we too the kids to the cinema to watch Tinkerbell. It was the first time at the movies for AOI's cousin but my little has been to one in San Francisco's Acquarium of the Bay. 27-12 my mother, AOI and I went to Exceter to buy TOI 's Christening outfit. In the afternoon my sister in law decorated the christening cake my mother in law baked. 28-12 his christening was casual, simple and beautiful with only the family present. It was sunny and though there was no light lit in the church the 2:30pm light lit the place making the Church look pretty. A very short service in the same church his grandfather baptized AOI two and half years ago. When then had a big feast around four. My little boy was jovial and friendly with all the family members

AOI: she asked me “Can I lie in the snow?” “Of course” I said excited because I was glad to witness her new found love for snow play

TOI: he was not very happy to sled, so we bundled him up and put in the sled whilst daddy skii

AOI and TOI: she cuddled him tight with all her affection and few seconds later told him “Your breath smells?” That’s when I found out she has found her sense of smell “He smells like milk, that’s the smell.”

AOI and TOI: He slept most part of San Francisco touring. This is during a long stroll into Golden Gate Park

AOI: messy hair, eating a yummy apple just before breakfast, baby Elefante still asleep in her lap. That morning no-one knew that by that night Elefante would have gone missing. We would have kept her safely home. 16th December was the day my toddler cried a lot {and I did cry too}, before bedtime, because she lost her best stuffy friend, Elefante.
