Boxing day, and all invited to dd3 for a buffet lunch, then lots of chatter and games!

Christmas Day, much quieter this year for us as didn't have all the family for lunch, but still had fun! And the usual games in the evening, lots of laughter!

Christmas Eve, the build up to the big day! Lots of preparation here!
