Our Christmas: 2014

I’ve passed the baton well!!!   I am pleased 🙂   Jeanette is making scrumptious mince pies and shortbread  … and Christmas day spent at Elaine and Bryan’s new home was fabulous!!   For the first time in many many years I was not responsible for organising and hosting this special day.  They did a marvellous job!!!   We all pitched in and brought something for the table .. a scrumptious spread of Christmas fare

The kiddies spent most the day in the pool … it was an extremely hot day.    A huge blow-up slide-cum-‘pirate ship’ was a huge hit!!!    They had a ball!!!!

I must say …. I did miss having our family gathering in our family home .. but on the other hand …  I could get used to it 😉     Hubby and I are truly blessed surrounded by our wonderful children and grandchildren at Christmas time … moments I treasure xxx
