Daddy’s birthday and the Crawshaw Christmas

On the 27th of December it is Robin’s birthday. Sometimes it can be an unfortunate time of year to have a birthday because everyone is busy with Christmas, but this year we had a lovely day combining Robin’s birthday with meeting up with his family for christmas- we had a lovely day at home opening gifts, eating lots of food and playing games. Here’s some pictures from the festivities! hope everyone is having a nice relax after the business of Christmas and preparing for New  Years celebrations!

We started the day giving Joe his Christmas present from us-it has kept us all entertained for hours!
