(missing you so much Debbie and Gary! xx)
No longer are there parents to drive and visit, so today we are having a chill out day really doing nothing! Last night was perfect weather for dinner outside (and as I write this our Canadian friends are enjoying Christmas Eve by the cosy fire where it is minus 25C outside!). Larry and I can't even imagine being that cold but I kind of would like to experience one white Christmas in my lifetime! I seemed to spend two days preparing and have to admit I did go a bit overboard with the silver/aqua theme!!
I forgot to photograph the food but believe me it was good! Leftovers for a few days including prawns, ham, turkey and salads…..
Emily did the most amazing potato bake and Sophie a delicious pavlova that Beau sampled…….
So after all the excitement it was time to just sit back and do a bit of chilling out…….
Sometimes I wonder why I take personal pictures of all this family time and put it on a blog??!! Well I guess I am keeping these memories for future generations as Larry has me turn them into hard back diary books from time to time. So for now - thanks for listening to me 'rave on' - and for those "up North" you get to see how we did it "down South"! So from our family to yours…...a very Merry Christmas and hope it is a day filled with all you want it to be xx
(And yes the tripod and camera timer worked!)
