We had a lovely christmas. Ate too much, drank too much, gave the children too many presents... so now we're fat, hungover and broke. Yay! I'd do it all again tomorrow. Christmas Eve we didn't do much - a tiny bit of last minute shopping and then dipping the cherries in chocolate. It's a family event.
We had christmas morning at home, just the four of us, with a traditional breakfast of pancakes and maple syrup, and opening our presents. The boys got new baseball bats and wiffle balls to practice with (this is the last known sighting of this ball, we think it's just through the neighbour's fence but we can't quite spot it).
Then we went round to friends for a wonderful lunch/dinner - one on-going feast that lasted many hours. It was very relaxing and we had a wonderful time. The food was amazing.
And the wine was flowing, so Boxing Day was spent a bit bleary-eyed and quiet.
