Christmas Day 2010

We had a lovely day - filled with good food, pressies and a bit of family and friends too.

The kids loved the mayhem of the morning. They were totally overspoiled.

Our guts were terribly overspoiled too.
Our menu for the day included...

Sour Cream Coffee Cake and fresh pineapple, cherries and watermellon
with good strong Organic coffee for breakfast.. Oh, and a bit of leftover Loganberry crumble too.

Champagne with cherries, Baked ham (with Jen's amazing recipe), green bean and kumara salad with smoked  bacon, deviled eggs, Goat's fetta and avocado green salad, and Chocolate Guinness cake with cranberries and white chocolate.

We were too stuffed to do anything else for dinner.
We had plain ham sambos after washing the sand off from Walkerville. the way - this is how Nic spent the early morning after milking the cows.
Cows and Chooks don't care if it's Christmas!

That water was FRIGID! 
It is beyond me how any of them got past their toes, but almost all of them came home with sand and seawater in their hair - including Nic! 

Hope that you had a joyful day as well.
