Christmas Day in Pictures (and a few words)

You know you’ve had way too much fun when you plug your SD card into your computer and realise you’ve hardly taken any photos. We did have a wonderful day though, so here are the moments we did manage to capture…IMGP7073

Our Christmas table… can you tell who decorated it? 


No, we didn’t eat the baubles for breakfast. And yes, my dad did make that joke.


Mayana played the part of Santa’s Lachlan’s Lil Helper. He would pick a present from under the tree, and she would deliver it to the appropriate person, then return the scrunched up wrapping paper to Lachlan’s bag. 


This was Mayana’s first present of the day. As soon as she saw the colour she knew it was “Wiggle Dor-y” (aka Dorothy the Dinosaur).


They’ve been pretty much inseparable ever since. 


Even our 11 year old Jack Russell, Jack, got in on the fun. And same as every year, his present was no sooner ripped open then it was buried in the back yard for later.


Mayana LOVED her present from “Grandma” Suki & “Grandpa” Ron. She kept it around her neck while she opened all of her other presents.


Jordan & Bethanie spent the better part of the afternoon assembling the lovely dollhouse Jordan got Mayana.


I made my first ever Pavlova (from scratch), and topped it with cream, crushed crunchie bar, a raspberry coulis and frozen raspberries. Yum!


Alexie made a delicious rocky-road themed ice-cream pudding cake. Yummo!

And in case you were wondering, I was very spoiled this Christmas. I got a gorgeous ring and dress from my secret santa (my mum!), and my husband totally outdid himself, and got me a hair dryer, mini hair straightner, and a Wii game I wanted. He asked Mayana what she wanted to get Mama, and she replied, “Ummm a cup of tea”. So they went and chose me a gorgeous glass teapot.

It was a lovely day, I just can’t believe that Christmas is all over for another year!

I hope yours was as wonderful as ours x
