Christmas 2011

This Christmas was Patrick’s first and Oliver’s third. O let us sleep in until 7:30. We didn’t have a white Christmas, but it was quite frosty. Thankfully we remembered to cover the lemon tree.


Oliver came down and wowed at the tree with all the presents and lights. We had breakfast, watched the 2010 TopGear Christmas Special and held off until Grandma Dulce and Auntie Megan showed up. Gavin helped bring in the presents.


We had brunch, sticky buns and bacon, and then set about spending two hours opening presents – we got distracted, P had a nap, O got distracted, and with six people, we had a lot of presents.

Around 3:30 we had “dinner” – Aunt Holly’s garlic chicken, cauliflower, green beans, homemade bread, and macaroni & cheese. Dessert was a chocolate torte with raspberries and whipping cream.
