It's a tradition at Christmas that when we're with Grumps and Ellie (Alex's Dad and his wife), we do the Telegraph Christmas general knowledge crossword. I am not allowed to read out the clues as apparently I cheat. So Alex was reading the clues and filling in the grid. This year he had a little helper :)
This Christmas was Nina's first. She was very good and was happy to stay up and have fun with her family. We had Christmas dinner with her Uncle Pete and Auntie Clara, Clara's mum Jenny, and Granny and Granddad, then we went to stay with Grumps and Ellie for a few days, then we spent New Year with Nanny and Granddad, Uncle Andy, Auntie Fliss and her cousin Theo.
As you can imagine with that many grandparents and aunties and uncles, she had a great time. We didn't get her loads of presents - her favourite bit was the bright, crinkly wrapping paper anyway. But she got some clothes and some books, amongst other things.
She was well prepared clothing-wise for the party season. Here she is in her Christmas dress:
After another Christmas lunch (her hat wouldn't stay on, even though she's related to us and has a big head!):
And here she is helping plan next year's festivities with Grumps. The elf hat might fit better then!
