Home for Christmas: Sports day

Our competitive kids,enjoying being back together, went head to head for a family sports day.
And both boys and girls gave their all as they fought to win the day for their team.
Mama's team, in orange, took on the might of Uncle Billy's team in green.
With kids, who were not on the field, shouting and cheering from the sidelines there was a whole lot of friendly rivalry on and off the pitch. 
The little ones had races, while the older kids played games of football, volleyball, netball and athletics.
At the end of the morning, Mama's team triumphed..
In the afternoon a special kidz club , delighted Mama and Papa spoke of their joy at having all the kids, now back with their families, back at their Happy House home this week and to see how thrilled they are to see each other.
On tomorrow's blog we'll be catching up with all the news of Santa's deliveries!
