Our Christmas 2012

Early a.m. (1am) present opening session under the cover of darkness, sister secrecy......
Later a.m. present opening with all of the family, lots of handmade goodies to unwrap made with love and care
A trip to the country, a quiet family lunch
A day of cute nephews, father and son sitting and chatting
Sweet niece cuddles and curling little toes
Rides around the paddock with Grandma
Homemade punch, rum balls, fruit mince tarts, pudding, salads and cold meat
Conversation, fun times, memories, so much to be grateful for.
I hope you enjoyed your Christmas Day.
