Wow what a Christmas!
A day with family, we played with new toys with the Grand Kiddies, we giggled our way through photo's with festive props and I spent ages building Santa out of plastic bricks and was rather proud of the result if I do say so myself!
Dinner was delicious thanks to the husband - Jamie Oliver was right about prepping the day before! My favourite moment over dinner was when one of the grand kiddies accepted the solitary sprout on her plate as a tradition on Christmas day, whether you liked them or not, and was encouraged as we all popped one in our mouths at the same time. Her expression went from peer pressure induced enthusiasm to a poor attempt at a pleasing-everyone smile whilst grimacing and covering her mouth with her hand! She made it though! I expect she's pleased she has a whole year until the next sprout appears on her plate!
After the round of visiting we got home with enough time for a film and a festive drink! Cheers!
A happy Christmas for us, unlike my poor brother who was admitted to hospital on Christmas Eve and came home on the 28th! And to think I spent December serenading him with christmas songs to make him Christmassy!
Unless...it was my singing that put him in hospital...
