Our First Christmas
It was a while ago now but it's definitely worth documenting the twins' first Christmas. They had a white one too. We were properly snow covered in Cardiff. A highlight was tabogganing (sadly the babies were a bit young to fully appreciate this bit).
Poor things were subjected to being dressed up for the day as Father Christmas (Oscar) and Chief Elf (Caitlin). It was all Uncle Richard's idea and if he has his way they'll be wearing ridiculous outfits for Christmas until they're old enough to say 'no' (and get away with it).
Notable First Christmas presents included some lovely HABA wooden toys from Nanny Di (lovely, lovely Nanny Di who we love and miss), Gap outfits from Uncle Rich and far too many things to list here from Uncle Matt and Auntie Liz. Among the huge bag of goodies, the story about Oscar bear and Ollie bear is a particular favourite (and very apt given Ollie is Oscar's cousin).
Thoughts of giving the babies a mashed up version of what the adults were eating on Christmas Day didn't quite materialise as both Oscar and Caitlin had severe tummy bugs which meant they were on nothing but milk for two weeks. Still, they seemed to enjoy their First Christmas.
