A very unconventional Christmas

I know it is a bit late for a Christmas post but time just gets away sometimes! We've had the best Christmas in a long time (at least I thought so) and all because we decided to have a very quiet Christmas Day. The kids got up at 7.30am and we opened presents for the next hour. Max and Romy got an iPod Shuffle each as well as some toys and books. They were really pleased with what Santa had chosen and played for the next few hours with all their new stuff. The house has been very quiet as well since they had their iPods stuck to their ears the whole time! So off I went to have a little morning snooze and the next thing I know I woke up at 11.30. I thought I better get up and make some lunch so I grabbed a Pizza and put it in the oven! We all went for a long swim in the pool in the afternoon and some more playtime. All in all a very relaxing day. I know there was no traditional lunch but I think the kids couldn't care less and we had a much more relaxing day without all the cooking. Selfish? Maybe a little. But we had a big Christmas Eve at my sister in laws place with the whole family and a wonderful Boxing Day at my Father in Laws farm. After all it is supposed to be about Family and spending time together. And we certainly did that.
And I even had some time to create...Happy New Year!
