Christmas wrap up

I do this thing, every Christmas and birthday, where I like to take pictures of Elliot with all the old wrapping paper. I don't know how it started, but it's my own little tradition now. It's one of my favouritest things about the two celebrations. And here are the results (the best ones, I mean) I didn't get around to taking the photos on Christmas itself because of everything going on, but I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.

And another thing. We moved into this house 14 months ago and have only really met our next door neighbours to the left of us, and that's because they have a little boy who's only a few months younger than Elliot. Anyway, for some reason, this year our neighbours across the street posted a Christmas card through our letter box. A friendly thing to do, and something we probably should have done last year, but didn't. We posted one back to them, but is that the end of it? Is there some other thing we're supposed to do now to continue this friendly exchange, or just leave it until next Christmas?

Also, who else LOVES the cheesy jokes in the Christmas crackers?


  1. thats a fabulous idea with the Christmas paper!!!! love it!

    as for the neighbors... i don't know. do you bake? the next time you bake them something you could send a portion their way...

  2. it can wait till next x-mas, you are the ones who are new, they'll let you know if they want more.

    pics of Elliot are so cute!

    btw i not only like the jokes i love the toys!!
