Christmas Day - at home

Christmas Day was a different day for us this year...not only did we have company, J and we were in Vancouver, but Alex worked until 2 am on Christmas morning and had to work again at 5 am on Boxing we did some different stuff. We didn't do anything Christmas until the afternoon. While Alex slept, we went to the Aquarium - then we came home for dinner with cousin Nate.

paula got an orange
Paula was very interested in our tradition of getting an orange in the toe of our stockings. We decided Santa must not leave oranges in South African stockings because they have lots of oranges, all year...and when Santa first started bringing oranges to Northern Hemisphere stockings, they were a big treat!
