Houseful..feel like Ma Walton..

Hello all how are you today?
Its been a bit of a squeeze here today..two of my grand daughters arrived bright and early and then my daughter arrived after lunch with two more grandchildren..it was manic but thankfully they all get on well together..i took the opportunity to grab a picture whilst they were here..it was strange hearing them shout Grandma..mum..grandma.. mum..it is so weird..i answer everyone..when they leave its like a military campaign..who do these boots belong too..who's coat is this..hugs and kisses for everyone..then goodbyes..it makes me feel like Ma Walton.
I feel sorry for Sam..like my Sam..the only boy surrounded by girls..but they both are adored by the girls and can hold their ground pretty well...good job they can.
L-R..Iris,Hollie,Sam,Leah,Emma and Fern..
It was loud when they were all here..Hollie and Emma went home with their dad not long after this picture..it quietened down a little but not much..
Tomorrow our other Daughter and Grand daughters are coming around..will try to get some pictures of them.
My husband went to town to get the fresh bits today..it was heaving in Asda at half 8..you honestly wouldn't think the shop was closed for 1 day..people had trolleys piled high..my husband pootled around with a basket and got what was on the list and came home.
Both the chaps went to the allotments and got our Swedes and Spring Onions..they have also got a plan drawn up now for exactly what we are going to grow and Pumpkins are on the list yay..so are Butternut Squashes..i love those..shame as i am the only one that does..beautiful roasted in Olive oil with some Red Onions.
There is no story today..i have miscounted and only have one book left  and that is The Night Before Christmas and Iris wants that for tomorrow night.
My turkey is defrosting nicely and will be cooked tomorrow..i have got some little Icing Kits and we will decorate our Gingerbread men and stars as well.
I have finished wrapping all gifts and have hidden them away..i am so excited and can't wait to see their little faces when they open them.
Do you still get excited at seeing the little ones open their presents.?
For me thats what i love the most ..i get all teary eyed when i see the looks on their faces..i listen to them all year to find out what they would like and try my hardest to get them..i don't go mad or over the top with gifts but i do like to get them exactly what they want and a surprise or 2 if i can afford it but i don't spoil them.
I like giving it fills me with joy..it doesn't have to be a big expensive gift but something i know deep down inside they will treasure and love.
Right i am off to have a cuppa..
take care
