I got the Webber BBQ Kettle going and was just ready for the meat to go in when we went to Church. We got home around 1030am, and I got busy making lunch for 14, while the kids played with their new toys (Mr T set up the Wii, and they can't get enough of it!)
The adults sat in the dining room:
The kids sat in the courtyard, just next to the dining room:
Everyone arrived around 1230-1pm for lunch, we had a yummy banquet of roasted pork, turkey and lamb with roasted spuds (potatoes!) and steamed peas, corn & carrots! Mmm-M! Pudding or cheesecake for dessert - then we all lounged around on the couch coz we couldn't move from eating too much! Mr T's Auntie & cousin called in for a quick cuppa, and present distribution.
Miss M & cousin, clowning around:
At 6, I got up to organise some dinner, but we were all so stuffed, we just snacked on leftovers! (no formal sitting at the table... grab a plate a crash on the couch and watch TV!) Everyone was gone by about 730pm, ahhh peace... and my folks came back from a visit with my Gran, who's in a nursing home (BTW... I'm not going to get old.) We watched Griswald's Christmas on TV, then the kids and Mum and Dad went to bed ~ Mr T & I played a Bowling Championship on Wii... who's the champion ~ ME! I'm no good at the batting games - but I CAN bowl! Score of 197, thank you very much!
H-Man just before bed, Christmas night:
I hit the hay around 1230, Mr T was still up playing "crossbow" on Wii - I have no idea when he came to bed!!! I drifted off to sleep thinking of Mini... I hope she is safe and warm, and we'll get to have her home next Christmas.
