Christmas Eve with the kids

The big kids came over just before lunch to spend the day with us and in this heat it didn’t take long for them to get into the swimming pool.  These two recently informed us that they will become parents late next year!

With the pregnant fairy out of the pool it was time for brother and sister to get rough.

I got so lucky to take care of Mayday for a couple of days.  Mayday is the African Grey parrot of a local fabric shop owner and as its name suggests, a mean character – or so they say.  From the first day Mayday and I saw each other, it was love at first sight and even the owners were stunned that Mayday allowed me to kiss and scratch it.  Speak of two-faced however, the moment it saw my son I was all forgotten and she sang and danced for him it was not even funny!  Meeko, our own parrot, not at all used to being in a cage, can be seen on the lower right of the photo.

Such a long wait before we could open gifts and as friend, Karin said when she sent me an SMS the cocktails do not help much to keep one awake.

So we played Wii tennis to while the time.

I am quite convinced it is a sin to eat as much as we did on this day and even the kittens had a ball having some ice cream with caramel sauce here.

Time to check out how these gifts work before we headed for bed.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
