So this is what they got up to in the last few days :- reading all Sophie and Justin's moshlings a new book - The Night Before Twistmas (a very well written Moshi Monster parody)
- setting up a zip wire from the top of the stairs to the front door and whizzing down it on metal coat hangers. Thanks to Rudolph teddy we got photos and even a video clip with the kids loved.
- on their last morning with us, Sophie and Justin found the elves sitting at the breakfast table with wrapped presents which turned out to be a Moshi Monster nightdress for Sophie and Star Wars pyjamas for Justin for them to wear on Christmas Eve night (sadly I forgot to take a photo of them in their new nightclothes).
That night we put Sally and Colin with their passports next to the tray holding the mince pie and beer for Father Christmas and a carrot and water for the reindeer. We said our thank yous and good byes and gave them both a big kiss; sure enough on Christmas morning they had gone back to the North Pole for another year.
Here is a summary of what they did this year. They:
- Got the Christmas decorations out and put up the tree and lights for us, ready to be decorated
- Had a bath in the baby doll's bath in front of the fire
- Made snow angels in desiccated coconut
- Watched all our Christmas DVDs with popcorn
- Hid under a huge pile of tinsel
- Unravelled lots of toilet paper rolls and hung then down from the stairs
- Hid in the cereal packets at the breakfast table
- Hid in our new car
- Played noughts and crosses on the whiteboard
- Dressed Sophie and Justin's Build-a-bears in elf costumes
- Fished for carrot goldfish in the bathroom sink
- Made chocolate rice krispie Christmas tree treats
- Got in a muddle wrapping each other up in Christmas paper
- Giving us tickets to see The Snowman stage show in London
- E-mailing Father Christmas with a report on Sophie and Justin's behaviour so far
- Playing a game with marshmallows
- Hiding behind the my first attempts at crocheting
- Shrinking in the washing machine, then growing back to normal with the Magic Restoring Powder
- Having a chocolate fest
- Making paper water balloons and chatterboxes
- Reading a Moshi Monster book to the moshlings
- Whizzing down a zip wire from the top of the stairs to the front door
- Leaving new nightclothes for the children to wear on Christmas Eve night
