Merry Christmas!

I’m sorry this post is a little late. Christmas Day is always a busy one for us and I just didn’t have a minute to write this blog post!

Yesterday we had the best Christmas. Kory woke in the morning and we was just so excited to take him downstairs! We couldn’t wait! Every year as we’re walking down the stairs we always say to Kory ‘Has he been?! Let’s see if Father Christmas has been to Kory’s house!’ And this year he was looking around and as soon as he seen the tree and all of the presents he excitedly shouted ‘presents!!! Father Christmas bring Kory presents!’ Just seeing Kory’s face when he came downstairs on Christmas morning was enough to make my entire day.

That morning at home we all sat around the Christmas tree opening our presents with Christmas music playing in the background and in that moment I had never felt more touched by all of the gifts that Kory and us received and grateful for the people in our lives. We had all been well and truly spoilt rotten by our family and friends and each other and Kory had the best day playing with his new toys!

Later that day we all headed to my Nan and grandad’s house for Christmas dinner where we exchanged even more gifts! Our christmas dinner was delicious as it is every year and it was nice being all together. That saying I’ve heard before is definitely true… ‘That it’s not what’s under the tree at Christmas that matters but who’s around it’ because as nice as gift giving and receiving is, for me there’s nothing better than being surrounded by my family and good food, just talking and laughing and every year at Christmas I’m always reminded of just how lucky we are to have the family and friends that we have.

Today is Boxing Day and Boxing Day for us means staying at home in our pyjamas and playing with Kory and his toys all day. So I’m just popping by to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I hope you and your families all had a lovely day yesterday.

Merry Christmas all!

Love,

Breakfast with Santa

Yesterday me, my partner and Kory visited Toby Carvery to have breakfast with Santa.

This is the second year we’ve taken Kory here to have breakfast with Santa. Last year he was a little bit too young to understand Santa, who he actually is and what it is that he does but this year he was excited to see him and kept saying ‘ Father Christmas give Kory present. Good boy.’ After we’d finished eating our breakfasts (which were lovely by the way!) We made our way to see Santa, Kory was a bit wary and wouldn’t go towards him at first and didn’t want to sit on his knee, he just stood by me and held my hand while Santa talked to him until Santa said ‘I have a present for you.’ Then Kory went straight over to him to have a look what he’d got!

Santa gave Kory a Christmas paper bag that was filled with all different Christmas activities like a letter to Santa, stickers, crayons and lots more! For just £4.99 Kory got a yummy breakfast with a drink and he got to meet Santa who gave him a gift. The Breakfast with Santa is available on a few dates over December and it’s really easy to book on, just head to the Toby Carvery website and select which date works best for you and choose a time between 9:00am-11:00am.

What I really like about taking Kory here to see Santa is that there is no ques to see him, it doesn’t get too busy which I find works better for Kory and because you’ve been assigned a time by booking your table, you can go see Santa whenever is best for you – before your breakfast or afterwards!

I think it’s well worth the visit and we’ll more than likely take Kory to have breakfast with Santa again next year too.

Have your kids been to see Santa yet? If so, where do you usually take them to see him?
