Ho, ho, ho!

How late am I with Christmas!?!?

It seemed to go on forever this year with the start being on Christmas Eve with Alexander's traditional reading of "The Night Before Christmas" to everyone..
Then comes the milk and cookies (or in this case this year, bourbon biscuits) and a carrot or two for the old reindeers..
 Christmas morning Alexander was thrilled with his Lego mine..
Nicholas with his pro stunt scooter and Cassandra was happy with her "shiny pink car" apart from the fact she thought she would get everything on her Santa list - not!
Lee was rather excited about his Transformer - he's been into them for as long as I've been with him and he only told me a few months ago that he'd never owned an Optimus Prime before (for those not in the know, he's the biggest, awesoemist Autobot there is), so I just had to do the honours for him...
  After we had all opened our pressies, Mum arrived and we started all over again!

 Think Mum was impressed with her "purpley" sweet!
Although obviously not as much as Lee was with Cassandra's pink sparkly shower cap!
 Dinner and games, although Lee wasn't feeling too good and went to bed fairly early on Christmas Day, so after Cassie was in bed too, Mum, the boys, Tony & Christine and I all played cards for ages!  Teaching my kids to gamble at a young age, what a terrible mother!

 Boxing day we did it all over again chez Butler style...

 John's fav gift was of course Bruce - his climbing garden knome!
And then on 28th, we all went down to see Lisa and Greg and the twins for more gifts and festivities!

And then the dec's came down!!!!!
