Our Christmas Day

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Yes, yes I know that Christmas has gone already and that I am a bit late but this whole week is Christmas to me. We managed to get through our first Christmas without my dad. I was really bad on Christmas eve day and nearly spent the whole day crying but Christmas day was much better.

Now this is what Santa got for me. hehe not a cup of coffee but a cappuccino machine. YUM. So drop by any time for a coffee or hot chocolate. My two kids are old enough now that i ask them what they want because god forbid we were to buy the wrong thing, but every year Andrew and I rack our brains to get them that extra present that they know nothing about and the joy/excitement on their faces is such a wonderful thing. We managed to surprise Joe this year.
Here they are ready to go to my brothers for lunch.

and here are Andrew (dh) and Grace (s-i-l)

and an Australian Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the proverbial game of backyard cricket with the bin for the stumps

I hope that you all had a lovely day.
We spent today at my mums as it would have been their wedding anniversary today 58 years, such a long time, so Happy Anniversary dad and can you believe it Michael (my brother) actually did the washing up.
Now I am going to start printing pictures and putting them in my mini Christmas album that i showed you all a little while ago.
Its going to be 40 degrees here tomorrow so keep cool and remember to slip,slop,slap. (if you are from anywhere other than Aus and you don't know what that means leave a note and i will explain it to you.)
Have a great day and thanks so much for dropping by and spending a minute or two with me.

Very impressive looking cup of cofee there Missy...I may just take you up on the offer of a hot chocolate too ;)
Love all your pics of Christmas Day. The kids look soooooo grown up! Can't wait to see your little album full of pics and memories, and how great that it's ready to put together.
See you soon xxxx

What a great gift you got! Now you can have gourmet coffee anytime without having to drive out to the coffee shop! Yum!
