Sam and I stayed up till 3:30 in the morning cooking. After a baileys nightcap and 4 hours sleep we were up again preparing for the guests who were arriving at midday.
But not before some early morning gift giving:
And then before we knew it, it was almost midday and time to start the champagne!
And we were even ready on time!
and then the party began
and then there’s the gifts, with Fern the fantastic Santa Claus
And then the first course was served
and then back to work for the second
We ate, drank, were merry, and then drank much much more
and things progressed
It got considerably messier than this but for the sake of this post I will leave it at that.
