Christmas Eve was all about food shopping, baking and last-minute wrapping while we looked after two little girls and made a gingerbread house. Our best friends came round in the afternoon with their new baby, who was born early but was able to finally come home from hospital on Christmas Eve (yay - best pressie ever!). We swapped pressies. In the evening we read Christmas stories and put out food for Santa and his crew. Christmas Day meant lots and lots of cool pressies and a long, lovely lunch with our very old pals and extended family in Melbourne then talking to my mum back in the UK by phone. Boxing Day was spent at the 'sales', shopping for everything we need to fit out our new house, then we got back to the fun and games for the next few days, with lots of picnics, drinks with friends and wotnot. And lots of mozzie bites, grrr. We also got away on our own for some bush walks and a few drives around the country. Watched Peanuts Christmas movies. Played board games. We did a spot of dog-sitting. Went on a date night. By New Year's Eve we were pretty tired out. My friend and I stayed in gazing at her new baby while the guys and various kids and rellies went off to the Daylesford New Year's Eve parade. When they got back we made a chocolate fountain to welcome the New Year (at 9pm!). Best thing ever. Then off to bed and lots of sleep to prepare for a week of moving house and slowly getting back to work. It has been F-U-N. We still have a little holiday coming up soon, but for now we are all busy, busy. So that's us. Sorry again for the lateness. xxx

Ok so I am a bit late posting my Christmas holiday snaps, and you are probably over Christmas anyway, but here's the thing. I promised various family and friends that I would do a post about our Christmas and New Year (and by the way I am loving reading about everyone's Xmas on their blogs) and then I went and l left my pesky camera in Melbourne on Christmas Day. So I have been waiting for Australia Post to return it, and in the meantime I had to use my iPhone to take photos. So now I eventually got my camera back this week but then my flippin iPhone wouldn't upload the other photos to my Mac and I had to call in the IT Guy (Paul). So anyway, without further ado, here is a little snapshot of our Christmas - from Christmas Eve through to New Year's Day., with a bit of a description to follow at the bottom...
