Hi everyone and welcome to 2009! Another year down and what’s to show for it except an inch or two on each of the boys? 🙂

As for Christmas it was crazy!  The boys came in about 06:00 and we headed downstairs to see if Santa had visited.  Supposedly he had so I’m not sure which list he was reading and checking twice….

One of the most used presents on the day was a very inexpensive guitar-microphone-amp set that Santa bought for Elliot.  The boys even put on a show for us 🙂


Vic’s Mum had stayed for for the night and about 08:00 my Dad and his partner turned up for breakfast and more presents.  Showers, nibbles and playing with toys and all of a sudden it was lunchtime and a visit from my Mum.  We had decided again this year to stay at home and make everyone visit us.  This was due to a couple of things.  The first was falling asleep at the wheel a couple of years ago after rushing around all day (luckily I woke up when we hit the rough asphalt at the side of the road!) and the second was so that the boys could actually have time to enjoy their gifts in the presence of the people that gave them.

Dinner time rolled around and it was the full on dinner with Turkey and all the trimmings.  Vic’s sister and her partner both hate raisins so Vic had made them an ice-cream pudding instead.  They seemed to enjoy it although they were lucky it lasted until desert….


Boxing day was spent visiting people and then it was a full house again for BBQ on the 27th for friends that we hadn’t seen over the Christmas period yet.  Here are some photo’s from the day.
