Sidney has had Big Ted since he was a puppy. He was about the size of it's leg and used to play fetch with it, dragging it back to us. Sidney is now 6 and Big Ted still has all his stuffing, arms and legs, ears and both eyes.
Harry was 10 months old when we had him, and came with a couple of toys (Sidney had a basket full by that age!). We had just bought Sidney the little squeaky pig as he had lost his squeaky Hippo. Harry loved it and stole it from Sidney, making it his own. That was 4 years ago and Squeaky Pig has been played with daily and still squeaks. My boys know how to look after their toys! :)

I felt such a bad Mummy.
I hastily wrapped up a couple of their chew treats so there was something for them to unwrap Christmas morning. I needn't have bothered really as they were just as excited to see my Grandsons unwrapping their presents. Santa came to my house :)

I managed to cook the dinner with the aid of extra tablets for my arthritis. I may have been a bit spaced out and high on the Codene, but at least I managed to stand and prepare everything.
We had my brother, sister and bil over for tea and a great time was had by all. I can honestly say that it was the best Christmas Day I have spent for many years.
I ached a bit by bedtime but it had been worth it. :)
