Our Christmas..

Christmas Eve...
Well we did some last minute shopping, the kids went swimming, we had roast turkey & pork with lots of yummy baked veges, craziness I know considering it had been around 36 degrees when I started cooking.. not nice!! A storm rolled in & it rained for hours so the kids couldn't sprinkle reindeer food, which they weren't too happy about!! I fell into bed at 2.30am Christmas morning only to be woken TWO hours later!!

In their new pj's, Sam's covering his ears because of the thunder :))

Pretty lights...

The storm approaching, so not pretty!!

Christmas Eve cuteness..

The hair.. alot shorter & yes it's red :D

Christmas Day...

Christmas Day started very early... 4.30am to be exact!! We held them of for a little while lol!! We opened our presents, had a leisurely breakfast, then the girls came over for more presents, then it was off to have lunch with some of our family, more food & the best eggnog ever :))) All in all I think everyone had a wonderful day. Boxing Day (no photos) we had the Ryff Family at our place to celebrate Chris's birthday (Roy's older brother) it has been a tradition ever since I can remember, even though Chris does not like the attention so much.. I think he does enjoy the fact we get together to celebrate his special day! At the end of the day I was exhausted & so ready for bed. Since then we have just chilled at home the kids in the pool & me in the a/c lol!!! it has been very hot indeed this Summer! xx

Sam with his new Roborapter..

Tayla's Pandora bracelet, love the handbag charm :))

Playing a new DS game..

Loving his new toy..

They truly are the greatest gift of all!
