MERRY CHRISTMAS!


MERRY CHRISTMAS!

SANTA CAME

May you all have the most wonderful and happy Christmas Day!  All the very best from my home to yours.  Thank you for visiting my blog over the year(s)... I appreciate it very much.

ABOVE:  These two kids arrived last night, so happy to have them here.  
First time we have spent Christmas with them in YEARS.

Mike has a cough like me, so I don't feel bad.  At least he can't catch mine!  

ABOVE:  Our Christmas Trifle is made.  I'm much happier with how the layers came out this time.  I made my own custard, so it didn't run everywhere... and I remembered to put the trifle sponge on the bottom this time too.

I will be adding some strawberries and cherries on the top later on.

Right.... time to go and join the fun opening presents!

ONWARD...

Randon photos of our day so far.  I'd have more, but the battery on my camera died at the worst time.

My fault, I should have checked it last night.  
Derrr.




 ABOVE:  Ha ha!   I gave Stew the painter Mickey, and he gave me the Drummer Mickey!  





ABOVE:  I said 'Smile', and that's what I got.

 ABOVE:  Mike trimmed the facial hair ... looks slightly tidier!





 ABOVE:  My Christmas lunch, it was delish.




ABOVE:  Our three sons and our 'bonus' son Griffin.


ABOVE: Kelly sent us this lovely photo of Rena with her Christmas gift from us.

Mid afternoon I had a bit of a nap.  Mike, Joyce and Lacy took a flying trip over to Mount Maunganui for a wander on the beach and up the mount, but there were too many people there, so they came home again.

Then the boys took Lacy back to Hamilton, and then went around to Russell's to play pool.

It's now 12.15 and the buggers ain't home yet.  I hope they are not out too much longer.

It's been an awesome day.  I hope your's has been too.
