My December

Another month ticked off, and what a big one it’s been, what with Becky’s 4th birthday and Christmas all within two weeks of each other. And today is New Year’s Eve, and another year is wrapped up. Scary, how time flies, and this is even more pronounced by how quickly my babies are growing up.

But enough of that sentimental stuff, here’s the round-up of my December highlights in pictures.

 1. Becky putting the “finishing touches” to our Christmas tree. She
     did it with such care and attention, and you could feel her
     excitement about the festive season ahead.

2.  Becky and I getting into the Christmas spirit with suitable head
     gear and lots of cuddles.

3.  Becky excitedly opening her birthday presents at her Nanny
     and Granchy’s house. She’s a very lucky girl and got so much
     stuff; we’ll need an extension soon at this rate, what with all
     these toys.

4.  My gorgeous birthday girl. Four years old. That’s taking
     Mummy some getting used to. It seems like only yesterday
     that she was Alex’s age.

5.  A beautiful winter’s day spent going for a long walk, just the
     hubby and I, in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, where his parents
     live. We were soaking up the gorgeous scenery and talking
     about all sorts of stuff, like we used to BC (*before children*), 
     when this was our regular walking spot, which was lovely.

6.  John and Alex sharing some big chuckles. This picture makes my
    heart melt.

7.  Taking Becky ice-skating for the first time. Becky enjoyed it very
     much, but I LOVED it. Brought back my inner child and I was on
     a high all day after that. Clearly I need to get out more.

8.  Alex turning five months this month and more and more
    developing his own little character. I just adore him.

9.  And finally, Alex inspecting and taking a shine to his Christmas
     present. He is becoming so aware of everything and so much
     more dexterous. My boy. *Sigh*.

I was going to do a round-up of my highlights of this year, too, but then, the main highlight of 2014 was undoubtedly Alex’s birth, and nothing else comes even close, so I’m leaving it at that and look forward to hopefully lots more highlights for us as a family in 2015. Happy New Year!
