Our Christmas Day - 2011

We had a perfect Christmas Day, beautiful weather, wonderful family and friends and delicious food in abundance!
 Who could ask for more?!
We had Christmas at home for 20 this year, I was exhausted by the end of the day but the day was all that I wanted it to be plus it won't be my turn to host for at least another 4 years :)

I was so happy to see blue skies for Christmas Day!

Any presents left in there?!

The stunning Bombe Alaska made by Simon's uncle.

Food, glorious food!

My parents, myself and the boys. My parents have been divorce for 23 years and I only have Christmas with the both of them together every 4 years or so, so it was great to get this pic :)

Simon, bump (26 wks) and I

Working off lunch.

All in all it was a fantastic day and I received some wonderful pressies.

How was your day? What was your favourite part of the day?
