A Great Christmas

My DD2 and children come to visit for a week and we had a great time.
Swimming,playing games, going to the movies and visiting DD1, GD1 and GGD.

Christmas Eve my friend and her DD joined us for a fed of fresh fish and crays.

the kids had fun playing cricket while we chatted.

Christmas morning we were woken with Charlie Pride singing “ Little Drummer Boy”  and guess what Santa had been and left a pile of presents.

We had a wonderful time. Loads of beautiful food and it was so nice to be spoilt and not have to prepare anything.
Thanks Heaps Jo and Kate. XXXX


Boxing day it was off to the beach for swimming ,surfing and eating. Dh hooked up the CUB so we could sit in the shade.
BUT OH NO !!!  Sand too soft and down we went. LOL

DH was out in no time and then we played in the water. It was Lacy’s first swim and we found she would rather ride the waves than swim.

  5. It looks like it was a fabulous day and I can see why everyone needed a nap.

    We love that Blockus game! The boogie boards look like they are enjoying a Christmas workout.

    I hope you can enjoy a quiet week of sewing now.

  10. Looks like you and the family had a great time. My boys would love your 'block' to play cricket. Our backyard is sloped! Lacy looks like she really enjoyed the water. At least your hubby could cool off in the water after he got the car unstuck.
