This was Santa..of course! He handed out lollies to the kids and he had his house decorated madly with Bing Cosby singing figures, inflatable snow machines, the lot!
Christmas Day was great. We all woke up early and Santa got me the LIPS singing programme for XBOX 360. I was way way impressed! I just love singing and one of my favourite songs is on the list already, Khe Sanh by Cold Chisel. Hubby and I sang duet to this...full volume! HA!
We stayed 3 nights at my Aunt's place up the bush. There were 30 people at my Aunt's for Christmas lunch. It was a really hot day and so my cousins all had water fights with water pistols. It is just so lucky they got alot of water in their water tanks and dams when we got that deluge of rain 2 weeks ago.
My cousin's new wife got drenched by my Uncle. At first she was really cranky about it, but then she got EVEN! Haha, you ought to have seen my Uncle.
I took the kids to my cousin's bush block for a swim the day after Christmas. They canoed and paddled on a surf board. We got to see lots of wild life...kangaroos, galas, cockatoos, wild geese and ducks...and a tiger snake that decided to have a swim at the same time as us.....of course we evacuated the water promptly.
We drove back to the Big Smoke (the city) yesterday and I worked an afternoon shift in Emergency Dept. It was definitely business as usual for this time of the year.
