Sam and Bea must’ve been good children this year, Santa has just visited Applegate Road! I’m very excited I got to meet the jolly old chap. He had a slice of Bill’s birthday cake and a glass of wine with me and then was on his way.
Can’t wait for Sam to come into the front room in the morning. Actually, what am I saying? Yes I can. I need sleep!
Well, damn, I wanted to post some photos but the internet here is bollocks. You’ll just have to go check my Flickr page while I curse my cable company. Thanks. Merry Christmas to all, except Time Warner. Grrr.
Next day edit:
Internet working again for the moment!
Bill’s birthday cake. Sam and I made him his favourite, yellow cake with chocolate icing. I even begrudgingly used a packet cake mix and frosting for authenticity just for Bill. Happy Birthday Daddy/Bill. Sam insisted on eating the little cars and the spiders, but we managed to leave a non slurped on piece for Father Christmas.
The front room covered in train track and presents after Santa had visited on Christmas Eve. Also, big thanks to Granpa and Granma Allen for the Christmas tree which is making our home very cheery. It’s a tad more impressive than our little purple tinsel tree, also pictured!
