An Ode to Our Belize Christmas

It was the day of Christmas and all through the house,
People were gathered and started getting soused.

Graham, who with his wife Leona and daughter Ashton, brought the biggest turkey any of us had ever seen.

Roger and Julie

David, Dave, and Colleen

The tables were laden with foods of all kinds
Cheeses and turkeys and ham, plus wine!

And we can’t forget the mushrooms, pate, stuffing, the gravy, 
The potatoes, the cauliflower, the carrots, and corn,
The Yorkshires, bread and butter…it all resembled food porn.

The dogs they were crazed by all the people and food,
And one little pup needed a kiss to improve.

Ashton providing some comfort to Pearl.

But then the time came for the group to all gather,
To sit at the table and have quite the natter.

Jokes and ribbing took place while wearing our crowns,
A feast was partaken of in leaps and bounds.

Pictures were taken by a camera or two, 
While we all raised a glass, as if on cue.

To work off all the food, some took a dip.
Hey living in Belize is where all things are hip.

Bob, Graham, Leona, and Wendy
But as all things must, the day came to a close,
And some thought it a good time to take a wee doze.

 Colleen and Bruce, thank you for an awesome day full of food, friends, and laughter!
