This past weekend we had Ben back home, which was lovely as we hadn't seen him since he came home for Hugh's birthday in October. He and his friend Colin spent the Saturday afternoon making egg nog - now a tradition for them.
Ladelling out the first glass!

We then had a family party on Sunday to celebrate my nephew Henry's 17th birthday and my niece Olivia's 9th birthday.

We had a wonderful afternoon - it was so nice to have all the family together and Pippa put on a wonderful spread of food. We came home quite full and sleepy!
