On the 2nd day of Christmas: Happy Boxing Day

Fun around the Christmas tree on Boxing Day, Reuben placing Hopkins from Baby Signing Time on the tree. Boxing Day or St Stephen's Day, a public holiday, is like another beautiful Christmas Day in Commonwealth countries, traditionally celebrated by boxing up presents and useful items for the poor and once again sharing a beautiful Christmas turkey dinner with yesterday's leftovers with family and friends. One of the big things we miss by not living in the UK. My family back home are having goose, lamb and turkey.

 He's the little boy that Santa Claus forgot (yeah right!)

We're very grateful to everyone who donated presents at our party to bring to Children's as gifts for the kids spending Christmas in hospital. And here's to Kristi who did her own great toy drive to CHOC despite recent sicknesses in her home (we missed sharing with you all yesterday) but enjoyed sharing with Cassandra's family so Reuben and Callum could share their toys and new Signing Times with Dylan!
