Christmas Day 2016

For Christmas Day this year, Nathan had arranged to celebrate with some Kiwi friends of his, at the Hickorys restaurant at the Yas Links Golf Club.
I had never been to the golf club before, so I was looking forward to a new experience.

Family photo in front of the tree obligatory:

Quite a lot of people, but it didn't feel crowded. We had a long table with adults one end and the children down the other, although the kids mostly rumbled around on the big lawns; played football, tag and ran around with each other:

Our friends were trying to Skype with their family:

It was a lovely way to celebrate, although I must say I was a little bit disappointed with the food.
The food itself was delicious yes, but I didn't feel like there was a huge selection, and not really any extra festive food. Most normal Friday Brunches we go to are much bigger and have a better selection of food than this. I was expecting more, especially as they charged extra as it was a Christmas Brunch.

Entrees, I think I went three times only for the sushi...:

Then it was time for turkey and trimmings:

Santa came, of course!

And that was our two-day Christmas celebrations done for this year!
Merry Christmas from the sandpit!
