Christmas Day Adventures

28 December 2004

Our Christmas was great!
I woke up early and squirreled around the kitchen – glazing ham, making salads, chopping this and that, preparing for the evening.
We headed off to church, ate a huge Christmas lunch, exchanged a zillion presents. Came home for an afternoon snooze, then sat around relaxing and drinking fruity cocktails.
Christmas dinner was at our place this year – for all of my family AND my husband’s family. Everyone brought a dish and it was all so yummy. The table was laden with roast turkey, glazed ham, roast duck, chicken curry, prawn noodles, fried rice, chilli mussles, gourmet salad, potato salad, fruit salad, rice and breads. We popped Christmas bonbons, wore silly paper hats, opened presents around the Christmas tree, and sat around chit chatting over cups of Chinese tea and beer.

Funniest moment of the day : Early in the evening, while the adults weren’t looking, the little kids (all 3 of them, including Callum) decided to entertain themselves by opening ALL the presents under the Christmas tree. They didn’t care who the present was for or from, they just started ripping apart anything they could reach, with boxes and toys spilling all over the floor. They got half way until they got caught. So naughty!!
