arty’s first christmas passed in a blur of family, friends, food, and festivity.
he loved spending time with his favourite people, and has had a blast playing with his new toys.

we started a couple of our our own traditions as a family.
inspired by his oddparents, arty chose a present for a baby his own age to place under the wishing tree for someone less fortune than himself. we will definitely be doing this together every year.

i made him his very own stocking, which of course he was too young to know what to do with this year. i wanted him to have it for his first christmas, and hopefully for many christmases to come.

i also made all three of us our own decorations to hang on the tree together every year.

and now it’s nearly the end of the year, and we’re enjoying the remaining skerricks of the christmas cake, and the final days of having the decorations up before moving on to 2013… and somebody’s very first birthday…
