Christmas was spent sleeping, eating, reading, chatting and computerifacting depending upon who you were. CK and I did most of the sleeping while the kids did most of the rest. They both got little tablet PCs and didn't seem to notice the dozing parents.
destructoBoy read two of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books on Christmas Day and had finished all six by the 28th.
Sadly no snow yet this year but having received a snow boogie board from Granma for Christmas my boy has his fingers crossed it arrives soon bc his practice surface is rubbish
Until then it performs admirable service as a reading cushion.
Back in the distant past of October CK had a Christmas plan - each of us would get a cookbook from the other three and have to make something from it by the end of the holidays. d/Boy got 'The River Cottage Bread Book' and his effort was ace.
There was a lot of this while he was waiting for the dough to prove.
Princess C-W received 'The Hairy Biker's Pie Book' and she was ecstatic. Boxing Day dinner was a turkey and ham pie with cranberry topping. Except we didn't seem to have much in the way of loose cranberries so she improvised and decorated with pastry leaves.
A quiet but fabulous Christmas at home.
