I can now say Christmas Day 2012 successfully ticked off the list. It seems to take ages to get here then rushes upon us too quickly then it's all over. Caelen woke up around 6 which is early for him. I was already awake and up so it just remained for Chez to come downstairs which he duly did and we were able to open presents. There were a couple of surprise ones for Caelen and Chez which they liked so all was good.
Later on my brother Robin arrived followed by Tyrone and Bevis, two of Caelen's friends. They spend a lot of time at our house and feel like part of the family so it was great that they joined us. We were just missing Ciaran but I am sure he was having a wonderful time in the Seychelles.

Tyrone was happy to smile for the camera
We started off with snacks out on the veranda while the turkey, gammon and lamb cooked in the Weber. Then for a starter we had prawn cocktail. Because I don't have a big enough table we dished up inside then sat outside to eat.
See, they all survived!
Christmas lunch ready and waiting
Merry Christmas everyone
I didn't take any more pictures after that but we had peppermint crisp pudding and then played dominoes later. It was a very relaxed, chilled Christmas - our last one in South Africa.
I hope that wherever you are, whatever you did, you had a great Christmas too.
