Our Christmas Day..

Hoping you all have had a lovely Christmas day? We have been having a great time. Too much food, not much sleep, lots excitement and quality family time together. Even snow on Boxing day made it just that bit extra special!!

So many fun things have happen over the last few days which really do feel like weeks. Husband and children all home with time off work, school and university. Family visits, baking party cakes, Christmas day and opening presents. Christmas dinner, parents visiting for tea, more food, tasty cakes and drinks. Boxing day out for a party lunch at my mum and dads. More amazing food and cakes and home before the snow arrived. Snow came. Straight out at night to play in the snow in-case it disappeared by morning. More party food. Out to the park in the snow. Walking 3 miles to the shops for a spot of sale shopping. More snowy walks. 2 and a half miles walk around the woods to make the most of the snow. Sit down, heat on, feet up, nice cup of tea, more chocolate!!...

This is my catch up! What have you all been up to?

Sharing our Christmas eve through to Christmas day pictures today...

A present for Santa and Rudolph...

Now I really do need to get back to the gym, the weight is starting to creep on!! but it is still so cold, snowy and icy outside when it is lovely and warm inside..

Linking up with Jamie over at ~

Rainbow Rocky Road Cupcakes...

I made these rainbow rocky road cupcakes as something to keep the children's energy levels up when running around in the snow this weekend. This recipe made 34 cupcake sized bun so you could half the recipe or make a big batch up for children's party's. Found some rainbow drops in a shop a few weeks back, not seen these in ages so had to try something with them!!you can replace the rainbow drops for rice krispies.
