Christmas Day

We all enjoyed a good night sleep last night. We woke up around 8 AM and Sierra unwrapped a few presents from Santa. After a warm breakfast of porridge and toast, Florence and Sierra opened the gifts Father Christmas had left in their stockings hanging by the kitchen's fireplace. Sierra received her own pretend set of tea cakes, a wooden racing lady bug, some pony tail holders, a dragon fly whistle and a satsuma. She has been playing with them all day.

We bundled ourselves up to walk to the town's castle. It was sunny again but cold. Next to the castle was a children's playground. Florence and Sierra enjoyed swinging on the swings and going down the slides. We came back to their house to enjoy some hot coffee and a slice of the Yule Log cake. The rest of the afternoon we spent talking while the girls played with various toys and watched movies.

We had a simple vegetarian meal for dinner and then a slice of Christmas cake. One of Wendy's friends had made it for them. So we are full of cake!

We hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas day.

Merry Christmas! By now I've calculated that you are sound asleep. It was good to hear you this morning, I laughed to myself when Sierra wanted to play instead of talking on the phone..that shows that she is having a great time playing with Florence. Will you be doing something special for Boxing Day? We have two Canadian nurses I work with, but haven't talked about the custom. Do you want cookies to go with your cake!!!I'm taking a LARGE tray of them to work tomorrow. I think we are passed the 3 day shelf life, but at work they will eat anything!! We are going to try to make it up to your place Sat. Keep the blogging coming,love the pictures.. Mom
