Christmas 2007

Clare and Vic Faria's House

Parklands, Cape Town

On Christmas Day, Bella woke us up at her usual time of about 7 am. We got dressed and then opened some of the presents. As it was Bella's first Christmas, she was (naturally) the star of the show! She wasn't too sure what all the fuss was about, but she did enjoy tearing some of the paper and then playing with the boxes for a while. We later went to Clare and Vic's house for a delightful lunch. Grandad and Marcia even popped in later for a drink and to say happy Christmas.
