Christmas Day

Santa had been very kind and left three very full stockings for the children. He also left a note for Penelope thanking her for her gift and the carrots for the reindeer. I love her innocence and the fact that she completely disregards any sort of common sense when it comes to Santa and believes without a shadow of a doubt that he came into our house in the middle of the night. Jasper is a bit dubious about the whole thing but willingly goes along with it as he knows he'll get presents out of it!

After present opening we then skyped family in NZ. So lovely to open presents together even if we are on opposite sides of the world! We then brunched and headed off to church.

The afternoon was spent playing with lego, reading, drinking champange, playing with new toys and a walk to the lake to feed the ducks. We don't think the ducks here get fed very often as they were quite surprised that we were feeding them and it took them a while to work out that the white stuff we were throwing at them was edible.

We then gave thanks for our many blessings over a wonderful meal of turkey with all the trimmings and combined two cultures by having pavlova and buche (chocolate log) for dessert.
