Christmas 2010 was a nice quiet day at home, no driving involved and no hurry up to get to.. anywhere. We woke up to the sounds of the youngest three excited that Santa had been. The kids were happily opening their gifts. We all played Xbox Kinect.. what an awesome invention it is. Technology is just so ... amazing!
I cooked some turkey, some veggies from our garden and we plated up some Australian prawns. Bon Bons were cracked open and hats placed on our heads. Silly jokes were read out.. we all laughed and were uber excited when the kids started bringing out the chocolate mousse that they had made.
After lunch we went out the back and the kids blew massive bubbles with the bubble wands santa had placed under the tree. What a great bargain he had got them from Big W for one dollar each! Of course, we ran out of bubble mix and so my dish washing liquid was used up.. but we had a fun time so it did not matter.
Nicholas flew his remote control helicopter in the yard. It scaled the fence, it scaled the house, it got to great heights! We are lucky the Air traffic control towers did not send word that there was a helicopter in some 747's flight path! lol
I called my Pa on the phone to wish him a very Merry Christmas, and also my Aunt and Uncle too.
We made a trip to Bendigo to see my Pa on Boxing Day. The kids went on to the lake there with their Dad so I could have some alone time with my Pa. I was so happy to have that hour and a bit alone with him. I love him dearly.
Whilst at the lake, the kids proclaimed to see lots of turtles. I missed out on them, but I am sure I will see them another time. Pa's area has plague amounts of locusts there right now. That excited Mia to no end. We frisked her before coming home in the car just in case she pocketed some. We don't want them in our veggie gardens!
While I have you all here, can you pop over and see my friend Bush Babe's site, she has the most wonderful calenders she has taken the images all by her own self and put them together so spectacularly that I have purchased two of them myself.. and I am not disapointed at all
