Probably a good thing too, given how much food and drink we always manage to get through on Christmas day!
This morning, V and I were up nice and early to get some baking and last-minute prep done before we headed around to my parents' house to spend the day with my family...
Jasper and Jade lent some moral support - Jade things Jasper's butt is super comfy
Presents all packed up and ready to go...
Loooove the Mimco cicada clip V gave me this morning - we always exchange a gift first thing on Christmas morning
Fresh-baked lussekatter bread!
Eaten hot with coffee for breakfast - a Christmas tradition in our house
Piles of presents! Needless to say, everyone got very spoilt today

I thought it looked nice and festive
V pitching in and helping with the stuffing (and looking v handsome in his new Lacoste polo shirt!)
My Christmas present dress from my parents - love!
♥ Leona Edmiston dress
♥ Tony Bianco heels
♥ Georgini bracelet
♥ Tiffany&Co rings
Best dress EVER for twirling!
We feasted on fresh seafood...
My brother and sister made the most amaaaazing peach and champagne punch
They also made a very refreshing non-alcoholic ginger ale punch
Mmmmm my favourite - only the best to celebrate Christmas day!
Truly amazing amounts of food!
I made a nectarine and vanilla bean trifle from scratch, courtesy of Donna Hay magazine - this picture really fails to capture the vibrant colour of the cranberry juice jelly, and the creaminess of the custard
V made fruit mince tarts - note my little star-shaped sugar cookies! I thought the cranberry and pistachio nougat was nice and festive-looking
I hope everyone had a lovely, relaxing Christmas day - with lots of good food and drink and time spent with family. And I hope you were all thoroughly spoilt today!
