CHRISTMAS AS A KIWI

MEANS:
- summer time
- BBQ's
- The Pohutakaw Trees blooming bright red
- Beaches and Boating
- suntans
AND SUNBURN.... and a time to be with Family.... and to be Thankful for each and every family member who is still with us, because we have ALL lost loved family members somewhere along the line.

I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS DAY... today and 'TOMORROW' for everyone in the Northern Hemisphere!

I will endeavour to come back during the day and share some photos of our Day...

ONWARD... The unwrapping awaits!

THE CHRISTMAS EVE BBQ... had a ball.. they finally left at 1 am! Luckily for us the kids slept in till almost 8am! UNHEARD OF!

WAITING FOR THE 'GO' TO START UNWRAPPING! Shit Griffin looks like A DICK!

Stew.... Heee heee... I got him Silver Check for his hair... cos he has LOTS of grey hair.. not that you can see much of his hair seeing as he shaves it so short.

UNWRAPPING..... going on..... huge mess ..... but that's ok.



CUTE...



YES! YES! YES~! no more bored kids in the car .... PSP's are AWESOME....


CHOCOLATES FOR BREAKFAST... kind of a 'family tradition' around this house! So bad!



HAPPILY MARRIED.... happily hoping for a new baby this year.


FUN... FUN.... FUN... going to go kayaking tomorrow!
End of Day: DINNER IS SERVED:
And it was delicious! nite nite.

  2. Merry Christmas! A New Zealand Christmas sounds wonderful.. Oh to be warm again! I live in Georgia, and the weather is fairly mild, but still cold enough to sit by the fire to get warm.
    Glad tidings from the U.S.

  4. Hi Chris, I've been out of town and just now catching up on my reading. Your Christmas looks sunny and bright!

    Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday. It's been nice getting to know you this year and seeing all of your fabulous sewing projects! Looking forward to more next year.

    Merry Christmas!

  6. PS I think we have those same trees with the orange flowers here in Cayman! They turn orange in the summer, and green in the winter!

  7. Lovely Christmas you had Chris. Looks like the kids were well satisfied. I'm up early before going to my daughters for our Christmas morning. We had 35-40 people here last night for Christmas Eve. I'm all with you in for the chocolates for breakfast.

  9. Chris,
    Honey - you look so sad sitting on the couch watching the children . The children look as happy as you - do not?
    Maybe you are just "bone tired" . I always feel like a deflated balloon.I always have to "regroup" and rest a bit and then start all over for this coming year.
    Looking forward to your new projects
    Hugs

  10. Looks like you all had a very Merry Christmas! Yea! I have some friends in Singapore (for the husband's work) and their Christmas was hot and humid this year. I think that would be "odd" since it's winter here, but I bet we'd manage just fine. ;)

    Your tree looks great too! Very pretty!
