Deer at the Phoenix Park

This morning was the first time that both girls slept late! After breakfast and showers and stuff it was decided that I would go back to Liffey Valley Shopping Centre to return and exchange a few things, and the girls would go for a walk with the rest of the family in the Phoenix Park. So back to the shops for me again... Unfortunately not all the shops I needed to go to were open but I guess that was to be expected on a day like this! I had a quick bite to eat at a steak restaurant called the Iowa Spur Steakhouse before I was picked up again to go home where everyone decided it was time for....something to eat! So we had leftover soup, bread, mince pies, Christmas cake and cheesecake and after that we exchanged some more gifts with James's girlfriend.

 When that was done we all left for my stepaunt's house to have another Christmas Dinner with the rest of the family. It was fun seeing everyone again, I hadn't seen some of them for about ten years probably! We had another very traditional dinner, almost the same as yesterday's actually. After dinner we played a game based on the game "Buckaroo" (only this was played with a kangaroo instead of the normal donkey) which was fun too! Around 9pm my mum, the girls and I went home as it was past bedtime for Reagan and Jordan again. By the time they slept it was 10, and I spent some time online doing a few things while watching a movie out of the corner of my eye: The Holiday. I watched the end properly and rolled into bed after that...
