C H R I S T M A S  M O R N: Leslie’s reaction to finding out ‘Santa’ had been and eaten the carrots and dropped off gifts 😭😂😩 The first year he’s fully gotten on-board with the whole ‘magical’ side of Christmas and it was everything to watch his little face light up ☺️🎅🏽🛷 

May your Christmas be merry and may your hearts be filled with cheer ( well as much cheer as is possible this year) as we wind down 2020. 

Now back on to the spiced rum 🍹
