Now the kids are grown up and have partners and busy lives of their own we hardly get to spend any time together anymore so it was so lovely to all be together on Christmas day.
The weather was great and the rain stayed away so we all enjoyed a lovely bbq together, i got some fantastic gifts too, 2 pretty wooden Russian dolls(exactly what i wanted thanks Bekah and Jase), a handbag and purse and a shoulder bag too (thanks Jase),some beautiful perfume (Thanks Curtis and Sarah),chocolates from Connor (Curtis step son),wine from Mary and Vern and a hamper full of cupcake items(i have an obsession with all things cupcake, thanks Nicole and Ben) and everyone seemed to like the gifts i has picked out for them too, it was so nice just being able to relax and catch up with my sons that i hardly ever see even though we all live in the same town.
Curtis made a lovely pine nut, bacon and avocado salad for us to share and Nicole made her famous huge Christmas trifle and Mary made delicious kebabs, so we got to enjoy a variety of yummy foods, we also had ham on the bone, steak, sausages,chicken patties hamburger patties,( i had tuna steaks),plenty of summer salads and for dessert Christmas pudding, chocolate chippie log, pavlova,trifle, 2 chocolate trifles and a layered cheesecake with fresh summer fruits,and rocky road, so we will be eating desserts for days...
Of course we had our usual Christmas disagreements but it seems Christmas day wouldn't be complete without one but it was soon over and forgotten.
Funny all that hype and hard work plus alot of money spend for just a single day and then its over in a flash till next year, cant wait....
I hope your Christmas was as wonderful as ours, have a Happy New Year Everyone...
