Christmas day at the Allens


This year, daughter Tanya and hubby Shane hosted the Christmas day festivities. In attendance were (naturally) Tanya and Shane, Romola and John (Tanya’s family), Mary Allen (Shane’s mom), Robert Frost (Mary’s brother), Chris Frost (Roberts son) and his son Tyler, Robbie with Lisa, Emma and Brooke and last but not least Leanne (Shane’s aunt with daughter Jen. And of course four dogs…..

First we had Christmas brunch, Tanya’s special baked French Toast with sausage and fresh fruit. Delicious. After this we had a Dirty Santa gift exchange, seems like everyone finally got what they wanted! Then we had the general gift opening. Naturally this was followed by an extended play time with the goodies.

Mid afternoon we had smoked turkey and ham dinner. Lots of side dishes. And, of course a whole side table of deserts…

It was a really nice family day, when we could enjoy each others company and reflect on the many things we have to be thankful for.
