Day Twenty Nine – Christmas Day in Beijing

Posted on December 27, 2011


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!

Half the AYAD family

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

back to the kitchen

We ate, drank, were merry, and then drank much much more

nom nom nom

and things progressed

It got considerably messier than this but for the sake of this post I will leave it at that.
