We didn't get home until 11.30 pm and all three boys were still wide awake! Kobe was so excited about it. We had Christmas carols playing in the car and he kept yelling 'Turn it up! Everybody sing!!' and would tell us off if we weren't all singing. When we would finish looking at a house he would then yell 'let's go and look at more Santa lights!'.
We've been feeling pretty down this week, but today we decided to do something for someone else and we felt really happy afterwards. It's nice to sometimes forget about your own worries and think about others, and I'm glad we could do something at this time of year especially.
Tonight we had our usual Christmas Eve picnic in the lounge room. Jay and Harri were excited for it as they remembered that we do it every year while watching a Christmas show, but Kobe couldn't remember it at all. When we told him what we were doing he was so excited and kept telling the boys 'we're having a special picnic in the lounge room!!'.
