Link Up Your Christmas Post — Here Is Ours

by Dagmar Bleasdale on December 26, 2011

This year, Santa’s reindeer even got Reindeer Food — my friend Heather shared hers with us.

Santa delivered — Lego, Playmobil, a big boy cup, and easy-reading books.

In the afternoon, we headed to Don’s sister’s house, where the whole Bleasdale Clan always comes together for Christmas.

After shooting 200+ pictures two Christmases ago and not one with us in front of the Christmas tree, I made sure we’d get a picture.

Like last year, Don is too shy to share it, but take my word for it — there’s a handsome man next to me.

L’s Secret Santa knew what he wanted — more Playmobil.

He sang twice during our annual Christmas show, after he had proclaimed he wouldn’t perform on the drive over.

Everyone was very proud. Can you tell he was as well?

After dinner: a love session with one of the four big dogs under the table.

Eating chocolate — on the kitchen counter, of course.


How was your Christmas? How many people attended your celebration?

I think we were 25, plus two babies next Christmas :)

Link up your Christmas post here so we can all take a look!

Stopping by from Mom Spark Media community. I never understood the appeal of Playmobil until my son was around 5. He loves the guys and the cars. I reviewed a Playmobil Advent calendar…very cute and far more elaborate than our other calendar.

Jill, we had one of those Playmobil calendars last year and they are great! As a kid, I liked the calendars with little toys a lot more than just chocolate. This year we had 2 chocolate ones and one with toys I made for L.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great pictures and a great time!
I linked up my Wordless Wednesday post (hope that is okay) as it is our Christmas morning. I plan on posting some more about our day later today I guess.

Your Bleasdale Clan celebrations sound like so much fun! We have small little intimate gatherings here with just our family. :)

Ach Dagmar, da hattet Ihr aber ein schönes Weihnachten! Es ist immer schön, wenn man eine große Familie hat! Bei uns ist auch so und ich geniesse es immer sehr! L. ist so ein hübscher Junge ( ich weiß, ich wiederhole mich ;) ) !
Ich denke an Dich!
Fühl Dich umarmt!
