First off, me and my family wished you all had a lovely and joyful time at Christmas. And that the spirit of Christmas may well and truly with each and everyone’s home now and always.
At home, early morning of Christmas Day is the most anticipated part of the day. The day whom me and my husband were also as excited as the kids, we woke up slightly earlier before the kids were up, so we had time to prepare the camera for me to take photos, and his mobile phone to take videos. Team work it is!
When they were finally both up, they then rushed downstairs straight away to check if Santa has been. Oh yes, he had been! glass is empty, plate is empty too which means mince pie had been eaten and carrots for the reindeers had disappeared. Santa and his crew must be so hungry during their trip… Poor Santa!
Now the fun begins… as the kids checked their respective Santa sacks which were full so they then started opening gifts. Actually, looking at their reaction every after gift they open seemed overwhelming. The excitement and happiness in their faces were priceless! It’s like I don’t mind having no gift at all for myself, as long as they have, that in itself is truly unexplainable. Unconditional love maybe?!
The kids are pretty pleased and over the moon with the presents they got this year from Santa…. hmmm! actually from mummy and daddy, from family and friends.
Christmas Dinner is mostly quiet time for adults after the chaos in the morning with kids opening gifts and playing with them afterwards. Christmas dinner is usually spent either with family friends over or with my husband’s family. Obviously, my family can’t spend Christmas with us because they’re in Philippines. This year, we have my Father-in law joining us for dinner.
For our Christmas dinner, we didn’t have the traditional whole turkey, but we had the three bird roast instead. It was a mixture of chicken, duck and turkey wrapped in bacon. We also had some pheasant which really amazed me as it was really tasty compared to the latter. Of course, with the rest of the side dishes and the cake to top it all.
Overall, it was a lovely night… dinner was then followed by watching films whilst having a few glasses of wine.
How was your Christmas Day?
