Christmas eve and Christmas day!

Driving to my parents house on Christmas eve we passed the frozen reservoir and I had to get out and take a picture.

Driving through the hills

Once there, the kids couldn't wait to get stuck into the food, it is a big part of Christmas after all :)
The now traditional Christmas Guinness cake :o)

Googs was halfway through shouting 'merry Christmas'
The girls found the costume jewellery
and the kids tracked father Christmas online.
Oma knitted
Kiki danced with Gran
Grandad recorded the evening
and I was admiring a phone :P

Uncle S just looked confused :DAfter going to church, the kids were eager to get home and climb into bed as soon as possible in the hope that Father Christmas popped in.
And surprise, surprise, the next morning we found gifts from old St Nick!

Then back to Gran and Grandad's house for lunch and then Christmas dinner and some more presents!
It was the first time that I have ever made trifle! I think that there may have been a little too much sherry though :P very yummy!
Lol I remember doing this as a child.

Since Christmas we have just spent days together inside by the fire; playing games, reading and chatting.
