Yes, as you can imagine Christmas Day in the Donaldson house was somewhat hectic. It was near impossible to keep track as Ella & Charlie tore into presents and Ruby & Poppy only wanted to play with the wrapping.
And onto the presents from under the tree…
Ella wondering what to open first
Ruby looking a bit bewildered by it all
Charlie having chocolate for breakfast
And yes you can see the packet – he ate them one after the other in quick succession!!
Ella very excited about her dress from Auntie Katrin & Uncle Paul
Very impressed with Lofty!
Charlie’s most favourite present
Everyone in their Christmas outfits from Grandma Donaldson
Poppy in action
Later in the day Mhairi & Harry and Jill & Dave came over for dinner – we all ate and drank too much!
Poppy with Grandad
Ruby with Auntie Mhairi

After dinner Ella & Charlie had fun using us as their patients as they played hospitals and as their customers in their hair salon.
In the evening friends of Alan’s (Matt & Matt) joined us for more drinks. One of them had arrived in Melbourne on Xmas eve so Alan plying him with alcohol plus the effects of jet lag led to snoring on the sofa!
