Christmas Day

We had a lovely Christmas Day with the theme being very much 'going with the flow'  

We woke at 7am, to find Santa had left us all lots of presents along with some snowy footsteps and reindeer poop.
Amy got a teddy bear onesie and spent most of the day snuggled up on the sofa playing with a new DS game.

Thomas got a new 3DS XL, experiments to carry out and bouncy balls to make.
Mark got aftershave and a big box of his favourite biscuits, jaffa cakes

And I got a beautiful charm bracelet and some perfume
We ate croissants for breakfast, turkey for lunch and cold meats and salads for tea. Amy's Christmas cake took pride of place on the table and was rightly declared delicious by everybody.
We managed to seat 9 people around our table for Christmas tea including Mark's mum in her wheelchair. She has Alzheimer's and doesn't get out often so it was lovely to see her with all her family. It was certainly a squeeze but there was lots of chatter and laughing.
By 8pm Mark's family had left, Mum was back in the little lounge watching TV and we were all sat together watching a film. 

It was, to quote Pop Larkin, "Perfick, just perfick".
