Christmas 2010

Our Christmas celebrations always start with our friend's birthday and this year Gary's birthday was a big birthday - he turned 60 on 23 December.  We had a lovely night out at a local seafood restaurant with Gary and his family - Kristy, Sharon and Shaun


Son-in-law Heath and grandson Wil.


Christmas Day this year was so relaxed and calm - just lovely. Presents followed by breakfast at home with Mum, Jenni and Ian


Then we drove to Michael's place with Mum and Jenni - present opening followed by lunch

Who doesn't use a meat cleaver to carve the ham?
Later in the afternoon we made the short drive to Elizabeth and Matt's place for more presents and sweets

Elizabeth is opening her presents from Santa - her stocking was made by Sharon (in the top picture) for her first Christmas - 1979
Boxing Day we had planned a bbq with friends and my brother and SIL (Paul and Lynette) visiting from Brisbane - even though the weather forced us to change our plans, we had a lovely evening.

We have another couple of outings planned for this week - comedy show at the Opera House tomorrow night, lunch at Mum's on New Year's Day with Paul and Lynette and dinner that night with friends.  The invitation to the dinner said to bring a Secret Santa present - I really enjoy playing the game where we can steal one another's presents.


Wednesday next week Mum, Elizabeth, Jenni and I travel to Melbourne to see "Mary Poppins" and I'm sure the girls will fit in a good deal of shopping.  I love being on holidays.
