Jenni and Elizabeth organised a "guess the number of nativities in the house" competition - Patti won - there are 13 full and part nativities (including wallhangings)
Gingerbread house made by Jenni
Brook and Patti
Flaming the Christmas Pudding - always the Best Pudding ever made by Patti

Great day! Family at home and friends dropping in - what more could we want?

Today we had some very special visitors.  My nephew, his wife and their two children popped in.

Our great niece 12 months old Charlise
And our friends, Phil and Louise, came by with their daughter, son-in-law and 8 weeks old grandson.

8 weeks old Axel with "Great Uncle" John
It's been a lovely couple of days.  More friends came over for dinner tonight - good thing as there were lots of leftovers from yesterday in the fridge.
