We like to spread Xmas out over a couple of days. We open presents from each other on Xmas Eve. Billy got to do the honours and hand them out :)
|The flashing Santa hat is mandatory as the gift 'giver-outer'!|
|What? Santa's coming?! Where?!!|
|The highly-anticipated Minecraft shirt|
I got some books (yay!), Pete got some books, chocolate and computer game, Billy got the Minecraft t-shirt, some computer games and the highlight - video editing software.
The next morning, Santa had indeed paid us all a visit, stuffing our pillowcases with surprises.
|Even the cat got his stocking filled with treats and toys.|
|Note the cup of tea ready at hand - we were a bit bleary eyed!|
|A Nerf water pistol - cool!|
|Presents for all...|
|Angry birds for the PC! Now I can leave Mum's phone alone :)|
|Lots of goodies - some treats, some useful.|
I got a new shirt, a book, a travel candle, and some toiletries. Pete got a soft-sided cooler, toiletries, undies and a torch.
Billy got a Nerf water pistol, computer game, swimmers, socks, toiletries, a USB stick and fun stuff like glow sticks, fishing bait, a headlamp, mini water-pistol.
We all got candy canes and chippies to munch on!
My family came to our house for lunch this year. It was very relaxed but still festive.
|And the tree grew yet more presents - its the magic-pudding of Xmas trees.|
|Lots of unwrapping later, time to peruse presents and have a snooze - before eating a bit more :)|
I hope you all had a lovely Xmas - we certainly did here. And now its Boxing Day - a time to relax, play with your presents and eat leftovers. And watch the Boxing Day test match (cricket) if you're that way inclined.
