We called the kids to the laptop, there were 3 emails for them! They gathered around and Mummy pressed play on the secret video messages.
The grainy image cleared and Santa stared out of the screen, saying hello, using their names, showing them around his home! They were transfixed.
And then Santa spoke to each of them, showing them their personal books in his library. They read their names and they squealed. He knew about their fun, their outings, he even had pictures. He also knew that Busby had tried hard to be nice to his sisters, Poppy had stopped sucking her thumb and Tilly was trying hard to do well at school! There was more squealing!
With the final email, they realised all of them were on the good list and they fell into one huge sibling hug of joy. What an amazing childhood moment, made up of pure magic, Christmas wonderment and sprinkled with copious amounts of sibling love. When you get the honour of watching a moment like this you have just got to love Christmas!
