Christmas at My Clean Plate (Personal blog post)

I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas and New Years.  We stayed home to celebrate this year and once again, Santa spoiled the kids!!  As you can imagine with 5 kids under the christmas is chocka’s…well this year was even worse with the delivery of some huge gifts!!

Our poor Christmas tree looks so tiny!!  LOL This year was a rainbow theme, so the decorations were multi coloured and I colour coded their wrapping too.  Jordan had red, Sabrinah –  pink, Tayla – Blue, Carlie – purple and Dylan – green.  Made things alot easier!!

Then you are left with a massive mess!!! And hounded to have toys opened and gosh how frustrating are some of those toys to get out of the boxes, my younger 2 girls got alot of lalaloopsy dolls and playsets which is annoying to get out the boxes!! Check out Dylan’s ride on hummer too!!  That could a disaster there lol.

It was a quiet christmas with my sisters and brother visiting inlaws so it was just us and my parents for lunch and dinner and the kids and I made from scratch our own gingerbread house and decorated it,  I just traced around a dvd cover on paper to get a size and then layed the paper on the rolled out gingerbread and cut around it.  Looked more like a bird house lol

They had fun demolishing it though….

A gift they got from their Nana and Poppy was a little swimming pool,  I am in Australia so xmas is during summer here.  A pool is a perfect gift.
