My lovely friend over at Plutoniumsox asked a question this week about what has been the highlight of this year for everyone.
We've had so many wonderful memories from this year, it's hard to choose just one. I think though that the faces of the kids at their birthday parties that have to be in the running.
It's four years since Toby arrived and we couldn't wish for the two boys to be better friends and companions for each other, so many of their smiles and so much of their laughter is when they're playing together (albeit the greater the laughter, the bigger the trouble they're getting into).
We're also really lucky in our friends and family who are always ready to share celebrations with us, some travelling from two hours away to join us, and this is really what put those smiles on the boys faces at their parties.
So thank you to everyone who is a part of the kids lives and who contributes so much to their happiness. Happy kids equals happy parents. So that's what I pick for our highlight of the year - our friends and family. You guys are the best.
