Christmas Day turned out to be pretty perfect. It followed the exact same things we do each and every year, for as long as I can remember...and that's what it was pretty perfect.
The morning started off very early...with complete delight, as we discovered that Santa had indeed been there. There are very few things better than seeing the faces of little ones on Christmas morning...just magical.
We each got our turn to open presents...I love that it takes forever...we all get to enjoy each others gifts.
And then, while the boys headed to the beach, the girls stayed behind to set the table. This year we decided to do something completely different...and turn the table into a Christmas candy wonderland. We loved it.
Lunch was as it always is...a traditional hot Christmas lunch, with all the trimmings....and then some.
And Christmas night was spent eating leftovers, Christmas cake and candy...
...and to make sure we ended it of with a little bit of magic...sparklers!
From us to you...we hope you had a pretty perfect one too...
