Busy day

Yesterday was a busy day.  We had the family Xmas lunch with Pete's side of the family - lunch for 17 at our place!

Time for fossball

Lots of time for opening lots of presents!

A bit of backyard cricket.

After the Xmas lunch, we had out street Xmas party at a neighbours house (literally straight after - as I was waving family off, I was already heating the oven ready to take a plate of food to it!).  There's about 12 houses in our section of street that get together every year to celebrate Xmas.

Some of the kids went for a swim - it was a mild night, but not warm enough for the pool in my opinion!

Our street party has been going for about 16 years.

That's pretty special :)
No need to say 'enjoy yourself' looks like you've got that covered! Best wishes for Christmas and the start of another, exciting year. With a 9 year old, wow!

Well you have certainly managed to keep busy this December! It looks like a wonderful time was had by all. I hope you have a fantastic Christmas. Know that I am completely jealous as I am shivering here in New York!

Peace and Laughter,

Looks like a fun day.
