December 27: Kiwi summer

Nothing symbolises a Kiwi Christmas and summer more than a pohutukawa flower. It’s been another stunning summer day and still enjoying the long sunny days on holiday. I finished the side path at our house today and it looks awesome with the lime chip and I’m very happy with how it turned out 🙂 We then lazed around in the sun followed by home-made pizza and cold beer on the deck. A great finish to a great day 359 🙂

December 26: Playing in the sun

Another awesome summers day today! We were at Mel’s parents this morning, enjoying the sun on the deck and eating leftovers while Brylee had fun playing with a big tub of water and all sorts of toys. A great way to continue the good Christmas times on day 358 😀

 

December 25: Anticipation

What a Christmas day! We started off with breakfast at Mel’s family, moved to brunch with my family, lunch at the grandparents, afternoon tea with my parents, then back to Mel’s parents for a BBQ with friends. An awesome day with great weather, food and family 🙂 Brylee had a great day and got so many presents that she wont need anything else until at least next Christmas! She didn’t really get the present deal at first but then got into it as the day went on. I love this photo because she was just sitting there intently watching Mel open one of her presents and then sat surrounded by her new toys but only playing with the piles of gift wrapping instead. An awesome Christmas day though and even though the post for day 357 is a little day late, it’s the festive season so it’s the thought that counts! 🙂

December 4: Tiny Christmas tree

I don’t have my camera tonight!! We came home in a friends car last night and my camera was in the boot but I forgot to get it out when we arrived home and only realised tonight when I went to take my photo. So this photo of our little Christmas tree table decoration was taken with Mel’s pretty average Samsung point-and-shoot which is marginally better than my phone… Marginally! But anyway, it’s spreading the Christmas cheer on day 336 so that’s what it’s all about…?
