Merry Christmas


Christmas Morning
Look what Santa brought for all of us.
What an awesome Christmas Day!!! Everyone pitched in and made it wonderful. Even though it was at our house, it wasn't stressful at all. My sister wins the award for "best surprise gift giver" and "best cook". I tell you what, she was outstanding.

My Sister made this awesome cushion for Remi's bed, he LOVES it!

Chief Xmas lunch cooks
Chief cooks for the day - my Sister and I.
We cooked roast lamb and pork, loads of potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, carrots and peas, and we made the best gravies ever! Elise and Ben bought the ham along, Ben and Chris bought the Turkey and stuffing, and Jarrod and Mika the chicken. It was topped off with the mother of all Christmas puddings. The pud was the best ever as well! Well done again Sis. Di Di made her ever delicious shortbread, mince tarts and (again) the best Christmas cake ever!!!! I tell you what, this Christmas will be hard to beat.

Everyone had so much fun, all the kids played really well together and the weather turned out gorgeous. Seeing family together makes me very happy - hopefully next year,  everyone will be there.

I hope your Christmas was as wonderful as ours...
