This is what I spent my Boxing Day doing - FINDING HOMES FOR ALL THE STUFF!! And this isn't all of it. My children are so spoilt by their large extended family!! They got so much!!
And for those who don't know what Boxing day is (I was once asked by an american friend "Is there like Boxing championships on the day after Christmas??")
Wiki Boxing Day Definition
But basically traditionally in England it was a day when the rich boxed up their Christmas Leftovers and gave it to the poor. That doesnt happen now, it is just an extra public holiday that makes Christmas go longer. Perfect for visiting all that extended family and stretching out Christmas or for going to the Boxing Day Sales! I have never been but many people do go shopping on Boxing Day!
And the day we learn all our favourite gifts!!
Girls most anticipated excited for
(previously Bindi's- You know those little craft beads that you make into shapes and spray with water and they stick together)
These turned out to be the MOST ANNOYING gift for the parents. The box says for over 4 years old, but the beads rolled away, the pictures that you copy don't sit in the holes, your fingers have some disgusting taste on them after - so dont lick your fingers accidentally, fights happened, tears etc.. and all by 8am!! The first thing they wanted to open!!
Most worn gift
Grandma's Apron - The 2 year old spent half an hour saying she want a bee quuuu... looking in the rooms ( I had never heard her say this word, I am thinking what is a beequuu??... )so I helped her and gave up saying "I don't know what you are talking about" and she was so sad.. Daddy finally figured out she wanted to wear her apron!! her BBQ.. just like Daddy was wearing his!!! So that was very funny.
Sleeping Beauty DVD
Planet Earth DVD series
