Christmas and stuff

| | Comments (2)

So. Christmas.

Got up relatively early and got ready (had to finish packing before church because we wouldn't have time after). Headed off to the parents' church. At least we got to sing two traditional carols, which is more than normal.

After church went back to the parents' place where we played some 500 (I won all three yayyy) and some rummy tiles, before Dave and Yvonne arrived. Had roast turkey roll thingie for a late lunch. Not quite the traditional pork, but having Yvonne there was preferrable, even though I know she really didn't want to be there.

So then did the obligatory family photos, including a couple with the extended family :) And then had the big present opening thingie, which was fun, and I think (hope) everyone was happy with what they got.

So then came home, gathered up all our stuff, and loaded some music onto Stu's mp3 player. It has an fm transmitter in it so we could use it with my car stereo. Then headed off to Yass. The road was really quiet actually which was good, although driving straight into the setting sun was somewhat tedious.

Had a very pleasant dinner with Annie and Stu and a relaxing evening chatting and watching the panel.

This morning we slept in quite late (actually I woke up just after 5am and took nearly two hours to get back to sleep). Had a spot of breakfast then took the kids down to the park for a bit. Then came back and Scott and Kerry and Jake and Karen came over and we went to the pool which was exceedingly pleasant. Then came back and watched most of Ice Age and dinner. And now it's 7pm and I already feel like going to bed heh :)

It must be nice that your holiday falls in the middle of a lazy summer day! I don't get to go anywhere, and am hiding from the cold by staying in bed.
