Christmas day fun

There was no waking up early today which I have NO complaints about at all. When we did wake up we were greeted by a text from Sophie with some photos of the kids opening the presents that we sent them which was lovely to see.

Nothing to do with us but it looks like Kenzie might be thinking about getting into cosplay like his grandad, he makes a great Kylo Ren:

We got up at a nice slow leisurely pace and had a cuppa and some breakfast before thinking about anything else. Lunch preparations started at around one with no rush on proceedings (we did a lot of prep yesterday anyway). Another cuppa was accompanied by Shaun The Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas. I'd not seen that one before but it was most amusing. It wouldn't be Christmas without some form of Aardman Animations program.

While the last of dinner was cooking we enjoyed the hilarious Red Bull Soapbox Race on Dave. Red Bull Soapbox Race is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Each hand-made machine is fuelled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull. This unique, non-motorised racing event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous soapbox dream machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race. Here's the best crashes:

Dinner was amazing

After the noms it was present time:

This is what the present above does, it's amazing, a Disco Bulb!

There may well have been some sleep around the room at this point :) Once we were all awake we had some drinks and nibbles and watched more guff on TV. The guff finished off with Love Actually! PERFECT!

It was a quiet but lovely day spent with some of the most important people in my life. Even though Sam likes to play the humbug card even he seemed to get into the spirit of things which just make it even better. Good food, good company makes for a wonderful day and it was truly that.
