Boxing Day is another excuse to indulge your festive fancies and enjoy another day of turkey dinners, Christmas pudding and good wine (in our household at least).
The only main difference today is that there are no more presents to open, although we can't complain with all the lovely gifts we were all fortunate to receive yesterday.
Christmas presents 2011
Even Cooper had a wonderful of array of treats and toys, some even shipped all the way from the other side of the Atlantic, plus his first reindeer antler to chew on.
Cooper's Christmas stocking and presents
I surprised Charlie with a customised throw featuring our Hollywood Hound, as you can see Cooper was excited about it too.
Cooper's now seen his face grace chocolates, wine, a t-shirt and a blanket. It's obviously a merchandising empire in the making.
After a leisurely morning of opening presents, enjoying a glass or two of champagne, it was time to enjoy our Christmas dinner (our turkey alone could have fed a small army, rather than just the two of us).
After an early start thanks to Cooper at 5.20am, the excitement of all the gift-giving and food preparation, it wasn't long before Christmas Day claimed its first victims.
Exhausted by the day's festivities
We ate, we drank, we were very merry. Job done for another year...
