We gathered around the tree...
and exchanged presents;
The girls liked (even said they 'loved') their pillowcases;
It was hot, so after opening their presents, the littlies wanted to test out their new pool toys. Nanny got them boogie-boards and water soakers and they were a hit! (literally)
We had a late lunch at the sparkly table;
More Christmas crackers were popped open...
Pink Lemonade was drunk;
And good food was enjoyed;
Bertroot, Snow Pea & Feta Salad
Ham, Roast Potato & Pumpkin and Chicken with stuffing;
Nick's Mum made the Three-Tier Brown Sugar Pavlova by Valli Little
Love the glittery reindeer, walking in the snow! (Nick's Mum definitely knows how to plate up! So, I stole this idea ~ with a twist ~ for a BBQ we had with friends today).
Before we knew it, it was 7pm and that was the end to our wonderful Christmas Day. So much fun, food and festivities. I really wish it could be Christmas everyday!
