Oh what a wonderful day we’ve had.
#1 Son loves his Lego’s. Not so much his crayons and similar. Ah well.
TT was really happy with her hair bows and dinosaurs and other similar items.
We then had breakfast. TT ended up trying my scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, and she bloody loved it!!!
She cleared that plate! We also watched squirrels for a bit.
After breakfast we opened presents.
As previously mentioned, we left a lot of presents behind, but as a result the kids really enjoyed what they opened.
Lunch was awesome:
- Pork with cranberry sauce and stuffing – yum! (Too much turkey previously consumed)
- Macaroni cheese
- Sliced potatoes – with herbs and other yummies
- Crab cakes
TT stole a crab cake and scoffed it before we even noticed 😂🤣 and these were tasty cakes (wasabi mayo etc). Guess she’s taking after us more than her brother.
Then came dessert:
- Chocolate peanut pie
- Key lime pie
I don’t really like British traditional puddings of Christmas time – mince pies, Christmas pud & Christmas cake etc, so this was amazing for me.
TT stuck her hand in pie 🙄
The dog barked and barked a lot. She was defending TT against us 😂🤣
So she got cuddles and we were forgiven by her loyal Guard of Honour!
TT also had a whale of a time just generally:
Yep, that’s a stocking on each foot 😂🤣
Aunts Domi and Uncle Gary kindly took the kids out for a brief walk with Fluffy (the dog) and they had a really lovely time. The wagon was involved.
We just had a little rest as wow it’s tiring:
I have read a few chapters of one of my presents:
Which is bloody brilliant and hilarious and everyone should read it. Certainly every parent who worries that they aren’t “doing it right”
Because we are – it’s hard and we are doing okay 😘
We are now watching Ozark for an hour or so’s downtime then bed.
MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL
