Here are those same two boys, a little later on Christmas Day.
Toasting marshmallows in our newly-acquired clay chiminea.
If you look carefully, you can just about pick out their outlines.
This was one of Susanna's ways of adding a touch of magic.
Quite hard to do when you're celebrating Christmas in summer.
But firelight after dark was a big hit. Especially with our boys.
Who would have happily stayed up all night. Burning things.
And making themselves sick with sweet & sticky marshmallows.
The simple pleasures, eh?
