Christmas Eve 2016

It's been a busy, manic day with a few relaxing spots inbetween aka getting my nails done! The boys spent a lot of the itme on the sofa with Papi. Markus did stir himself and we made the next batch of mince pies together!

The ISS (International Space Station) didn't pass our way this year, so we couldn't go outside to stare at the sky and pretend to have seen Santa :-( But we did find his flight path online, however, the boys were more amused by the clip of someone wrapping their cat!

In other news, I give myself my presents (a long awaited book and a pair of slippers) and realize i have reached Middle-Aged Rock and Roll Nirvana. And I Just. Don't Care.

I also realize that 8pm is WAY TOO LATE to start unpacking all the amazon boxes and stuff I've hidden in our bedroon. Alan and I wrap presents for what seems like decaides. But then suddenly it's done, we eat our supper, play Santa Claus and the day is done. Happy Christmas!
