Christmas number 1

Despite the fact that it is only the 24th we had our first Christmas dinner for the year today. Although we had it here we organised who would make what in advance so the work load was spread and we had a great meal. With 16 people in total (well 17 if you count 2 month old Marina!) from Canada, England, New Zealand and Japan there was a great mix of food with lots of traditions from each country - turkey, roast veges, salads, trifles, steamed pudding, pavlova, mince pies etc. Yum, yum, yum!
The children all enjoyed swapping presents as did the adults! A nice start to the Christmas season. Now we just have to repeat it all tomorrow and then try to deal with all the left overs.....
