Beautiful singing led by the choir ... shut your eyes and you'd have thought you were already in heaven. After the service of Holy Communion it was back home for lunch and preparations for the family dinner.
Before that, the opening of gifts! What wonderful treasures ... silver, carpet bag, smelly stuff, napkins, book, jigsaw, fun items, pillow, Tayto ... and the list goes on and on.
The jigsaw is the usual degree of difficulty ... well not as challenging as some of recent years ... this is not double-sided!
Eliot had his share of wonderful presents. Toys that squeak, ropes to pull, balls to chase ... doggy heaven!
Turkey is the main dish ... and what a turkey!
Then, after we've eaten more than enough, out comes the Christmas Pudding ... my niece captured this superb shot of the brandy on fire! By the time I'd set down the lighter and lifted the camera there was no flame left.
The poor dog suffers the usual indignity of being dressed in totally inappropriate head gear ... and his patience wore very thin over this hat.
