Christmas Day started in our House at 5.30am. Not my choice, but I have a Harry! The saucy little Herbert, used his mobile phone to ring the House phone to wake everyone up. Lucky for him, I was already awake, laying in Bed listening to my Hubby, snoring his head off. Harry stood outside our Bedroom Door and heard me asking Mick, who it was on the phone! Its OK I forgave him, he was just so excited..
I got up and joined him downstairs, but he wasn't allowed to open his presents, until Ben & Mick got up. If you look at the pictures closely, you can actually see we went from complete blackness outside to Day Break.
The Boys were pleased with all their presents and I had a couple of lovely surprises. Ben loved the Dragon Art Book we got him and Harry was thrilled to bits with his Osprey's Rugby top.
After the boys opened their presents, we gave each of the Dogs their Stockings. I managed to get a picture of Jasper & Merlin, but for some reason, I haven't got any of Storm and Moses.
We had our Christmas Dinner about 1.30pm. Disaster was narrowly avoided as I'd forgotten to put the Crackers on the table!
The Boys wanted Giant Prawn Cocktails for their Starter. We also did some Brown Bread with Cream Cheese and Oak Smoked Salmon.
That was then followed by our Christmas Dinner of Roast Turkey, Gammon, Roast Potatoes, Parsnips, Peas, Carrots, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Pigs In Blankets, Yorkshire Puddings, Cranberry Stuffing and lovely thick Gravy. We were all so full after Dinner that we didn't have any Dessert. But had Chocolate Fudge Log and Cream later on in the Evening while we were watching one of the DVDs Harry got for Christmas...
