Each year at Christmas, the family used to play game with small gifts. You’d roll the dice and depending on the #, you would either open a present, take a present from someone, etc. Of course, this is hard if you are very young – it’s hard to get a present taken away from you.
As the game has lost appeal to many of the adults, it was passed along to the kids. We knew our kids would enjoy it. In fact, Maebh asked if it can be played again at the Easter Break when their cousins are in from Los Angeles.
In the end they all ended up with a number of presents, some enjoyed their presents more than others. Though there was not a single toy which they all wanted so that was positive. Our kids requested to play this game each year even if it was just with us four – as they find it super fun – so we agreed and it’s now part of our annual Christmas tradition!
Also each child received a couple gifts from Santa, as he delivered their gifts to Dublin. First our kids opened their stockings and found some small things.

Between courses they opened their gifts.
Big success with gifts Santa! A drone, Feyernoord hat and Mercedes Benz model, 3d art, painting kit and some sewing kits.
