Christmas Day in the Skipper Household.

We had an amazing Christmas Day!

The first miracle of the day was I SLEPT IN!!! I NEVER sleep in on Christmas Day - I am usually up at the crack of dawn, too excited to sleep. I thought I would show you a few snippits of our day:

When I got up, Milly dashed out after me, and she found one of her presents before we had a chance to give it to her. I had to chase her back out to Daddy until everyone was awake and ready. She cried and cried - heartbroken because this "little" In The Night Garden character had to be left where she found him:

Oh Skip, what a beautiful day. So sorry it's taken me this long to come and look at your Christmas day pics. They were worth the wait. What a clever lady you are I loved your Christmas table, tbe boxes were just gorgeous. What was in them?

Oh and....who is that little girl in your pics that looks just like Milly but is far too big to be Milly?!?!?!

Well in the ladies boxes their were Robert Timms coffee bags, body lotion or lipgloss, Christmas decorations - and I can't remember what else. The guys got either a watch/pocket knife/classy keyring with some hot chocolate satchets/tea bags - there was also chocolates in them as well.
