This morning we started off early at home opening Luca's presents. He got quite a few things (he knew about most of them, because he had found them in the garage after we moved - we didn't hide them very well). He enjoyed ripping off the paper more than anything. From Santa he got a huge water pistol (for the water fight later in the day at my cousins house), some books, a bouncing ball that you sit on and bounce along, and a Hummer and trailer with a racing car on it. I think he likes everything.
After opening presents we got ready and went to my cousins house where all of my family are staying, about 10 minutes from here. Once again, Elise was ever so organised with 18 or so people coming for Chrissy dinner. We had the usual deliciousness of roast potatoes, roast sweet potatoes, roast pumpkin, peas, roast pork with apple sauce and gravy, roast turkey with cranberry sauce and roasted cashew crusted leg of ham. All this was topped off with yummy Christmas pudding with cream, ice cream or custard. Yep, I was full.
Luca didn't eat a single mouthful of the main meal, I don't think he likes roasted anything. Fuss bucket! He had a big helping of Christmas pudding and ice cream though. Later he had a blue and green sprinkle sandwich, but there was TOO much excitement playing with his cousins to worry about eating. He crashed out early and we had an early night as well. It was a lovely relaxing day. We had fun.
Thank you Leesy Loo and Benny.
