Christmas Day in pictures


Christmas Eve: a Skype chat with my parents, a candlelit carol service and a glass of sherry and a piece of Christmas cake to round it all off.

(The sherry purchased with some difficulty from the local liquor store: "Chevy? Like the car?" and finally located in a dusty corner on the bottom shelf.  Not a popular tipple here, then.)

Toby helps Dad unwrap his Christmas presents.
Look! A new book!
Santa? Are you in there?
Someone forgot to put ice cream on this scoop!
Brrrmm, brrrrmmm!  Toby loves trucks!
Our Advent calendar, which featured something to add to the tree each day, and is the only one I've seen with twenty-five doors - the large star on top was our Christmas Day treat.
Lamb is a rarity here, so lamb shanks were our treat for Christmas dinner.
Look at me in my new hoodie!
Look at me in my new down bodywarmer!
Gotta have a trip to the playground even if it is Christmas Day.
Christmas tea was cheese and crackers...
...and more cake, of course!
Christmas bedtime story.  Will Mum or Toby fall asleep first?
