It was a pretty damn fine Christmas.
The weather perfect.
The wine cold.
The food awesome.
The presents well received.
Let us start with Christmas Eve.
I finally finished wrapping the family gifts in this years dotty theme…
Ensuring that I followed the orders from Boo on which tree was an acceptable ‘present tree’.
And then retired to my new ‘Mimosa’ lounge chairs outside for a little white wine in the sun with Maddie and MPS. (Not my legs. But I made them.)
Santa got a note too. Apparently he needs direction because we have too many trees. I say there is no such thing as too many damn trees and next year I am aiming for an even 20.
It seems Santa wasn’t put off by the gruff note and spoiled Boo rotten. Or maybe it was because he was so damn impressed with Archie who was watching over him or the fact that Boo decorated that tree all by himself.
Boo made this stocking. Santa filled it to the brim with everyone’s favourite.
And there were Cheese and Bacon balls. OMG were there Cheese and Bacon balls.
Not pictured cause they are in mah belleh.
and then we grabbed a little something to whet our whistles out in the sun while the turkey cooked…
Coming inside when the champas ran out to watch Christmas movies while waiting for the guests to arrive.
It is totally a Christmas movie.
This years table theme was silver and white.
And yeah, extra cutlery in case of emergencies…
HUZZAH TURKEY! TURDUCKEN! ROAST VEGGIES! HAM! LOTS OF THINGS THAT I ASKED PEOPLE TO TAKE PHOTOS OF BUT THEY WERE TOO BUSY STUFFING THEIR FACES!
That is my Daddy in the ‘Real men eat turkey tshirt, and MPS in the fur trimmed Santa shorts. The meal pictured is Maddies, the empty plate next to it is mine BECAUSE I WAS TOO BUSY SERVING TO TAKE FUCKING PHOTOS OF THE GLORIOUS TURKEY ETC.
Nobody had room for dessert. Except for my rather tipsy Daddy who drank an entire bottle of Merlot and kept asking where the cheesecake was that Too’s girlfriend was going to make but ended up making cookies instead. In the end I threw together some berries, cream and meringue just to get him to shut the hell up.
We had the rest for dinner.
Rinse, repeat for the next three days.
Do you do a theme for your Christmas table? Lemme see!
