As we mentioned in a previous post, this year marked the first time we spent the whole of xmas together. We had a lovely few days, so we thought we'd share the photos we took!
This was nice and low key to start with, spending the early morning until late afternoon with Hayley's mum & brother. We both got up around 8:30-9:00 and had croissants with bacon for breakfast. These were washed down with a Bucks Fizz each!
We then opened presents together around 10am which was exciting as we had no idea what we got one another!
Ernie had plenty of presents to open, including these two!
We sat down for Christmas dinner around 1pm, which included a prawn cocktail to start with which was nice! Having elbow room at the table was a nice change for David, as he's so used to sitting as a family of 7 around a smaller sized table, but still cozy nonetheless!
After eating we chilled out on the sofa until 4pm and then went over David's Grandmas until 9pm. We didn't take many pictures there as by the time we got there the light had gone! We had a fun evening though exchanging more presents and playing Bananagrams.
On Boxing Day we arrived at Hayleys Aunt + Uncles house in the early afternoon, and stayed until midnight! So plenty of Christmas cheeses were eaten in that time. Hayley's cousin was also home from Canada, so it was nice catching up with him + meeting his girlfriend for the first time!
You'll find that the majority of photos that we took on Boxing Day were of dogs. This is because there was Ernie, Harry (a Springer Spaniel belonging to Hayley's Aunt & Uncle), Millie & Bibi (two Cockapoos belonging to her cousin).
It's always interesting/entertaining when Ernie meets other dogs belonging to our friends or family.
These photos make it all look relatively calm, but trust us, it was puppy mayhem!
Sunday 27th December
Sunday was practically a day of doing nothing, but we did take Ernie out for a walk so we could see him in his new Barbour jacket!
The best part about Christmas walks is how quiet the town is, with hardly a car in sight!
How were your Christmas celebrations?
