Christmas in Ocean Grove

We decided to keep things pretty low key this Christmas but there were a few presents to share.
Sport Boy did Santa duty. We visited Alan in the afternoon and after church today we called in on Fran & Bruce.

 I got a couple of books: We Are Geelong, the history of the Cats and one by Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear, as well as a great little guide to all the op shops in the Geelong region!

Mrs HP got a cute purse and the complete set of Seachange DVDs.

Sport Boy got a webcam and a Skating Monkey T-shirt.

Favourite Daughter got a funky wallet, a rug and some money.

Last night Favourite Daughter and Mrs Holt Press made a beautiful meal, turkey and veges, prawns and pavlova or plum pudding for dessert. Yum! 
Today I successfully bid for a table tennis table on ebay, from someone in Ocean Grove! Sport Boy is very happy.
Not so good is the cricket! We are off to the MCG tomorrow for day 2 of the Boxing Day test. Methinks we shall spend the day seeing England secure the retention of the Ashes! Favourite Daughter and Mrs HP are spending the day shopping in Melbourne.
I hope and trust that you have had a safe,enjoyable and blessed Christmas and I wish you well for the approaching new year.
