Christmas Day with our family

We are very lucky to have all our children living here .. and for once we were all together for Christmas Day .. special times 🙂   I say, for once, because more often that not, married children have to split their time between families – we did, so we know what it’s like – and on other Christmas Day’s, because we have paramedics in our family, they were usually on duty.  Christmas is the busiest time on the roads, besides Easter weekend.   Bryan’s Dad also joined us this year as Bryan’s Mom, Renee, is a frail care nursing sister and was on duty  …  Jeanette has more photos on her blog

Bradley read the labels and his two helpers handed out the prezzies .. in a flash!!!  They dashed around as fast as they could so that they could open their own 🙂

IMG_0951I realy really really miss my big tree in the garden .. we would have sat on the lawn, in the cool shade, but instead we had to squish on the patio …. still better than being indoors though ..  (it was a steaming hot day !)

We had a really lovely day surrounded by our family 🙂    … the usual Christmas fare, fantastic prezzies for all, sunshine and wine 🙂

Must share these prezzies .. mugs, one for me and one for hubby .. hand drawn by Erin :   it’s Erin herself, with hubby on right, me on left in Granny’s garden, hence the flowers –  she loves my garden 🙂   isn’t that so sweet 🙂   Something to treasure .. forever !!  Thank you Erin xxx mwah
