Christmas, Its all about The Family, The Food, The Wine and The Presents
This year the Family have rented some chalets in Matakana Riverside Lodge. Its fabulous here.
Perfect for our mob. Fun to wake up with the little children opening these presents.
We arrived on Christmas Eve, there was time to put out the food for Santa and his Reindeer
Santa, obviously had had too many beers...he was only able to down a few sips.
Anyhow let's not ruin the day.
The Grandfather in his happy place
Ms Sophia got a new laptop from Santa and a stunning, elegant Santa Suit from her younger brother.
Even though he obviously left things off Ms Cleo's list which she found very annoying!!!
The plan was 9am Breakfast,
11am Champagne, Oysters and Family presents
Guests arrive at 1pm
Lunch around 2pm
First the boys had to play tennis
The we had to heat the croissants, lay out the cheese and other bits and bobs
Cook the bacon, Joseph set the table
Food to prepare, showers and dress ups to happen
