What a wonderful christmas time

Here follows a photo story of Christmas Eve and Christmas day at our house.

Making the stuffing

Lighting the Advent Candles

Out for a walk to view the Christmas Lights

Watching some TV in pyjamas

Reading ‘Twas the night before Christmas

Mince Pie, port and carrots left for Santa and the reindeer


The calm before the storm

Present Opening

The Christmas Table – set by the girls, including place cards and menus.

And the Menu – this is just the Starter and the Main Course – there wasn’t room for the desserts!

And the Main Course is ready to serve!

Some more presents to open

Some post dinner entertainment, for all the generations (yes…we too got a Wii)

And a final photo of the kids with their grandparents.

And so to bed…..

Thanks for joining us, come back soon.

PS update on George the cat – no he didn’t make it back home for Christmas, still at the vets and being missed by all. More updates soon.
