A Quiet Christmas

I can't believe Christmas has been and gone already! My family had a low key kind of Christmas this year. I have a big extended family and every year we take turns in having Christmas at each families house, but this year everyone did their own thing. This year it was a wet & cold Christmas, which is the complete opposite of what this time of the year is generally like here in Australia. Our day started off early so we could go to my parents house and all have breakfast together before Luke had to go to work. It was my favourite kind of breakfast - fluffy pancakes, soaked muesli & fruit. Afterwards we had our present opening session, and we got lots of of cute things for our baby. My sister bought us a baby mat in the shape of a ginger cat, which was by far my favourite thing! Luke & I bought ourselves a joint present this year, we got a Wii & the James Bond movie box set. 

After presents I took Luke to work and went home and made a salad, tidied up and stocked up on some movies and went back to my parents house. When I got there we had cups of tea + Christmas cake and watched a movie all wrapped up in throw rugs. I fell asleep and when I woke up it was lunch time. While everyone else had seafood, my Mum made me a Mexican bean pie. After lunch we watched another movie and started a game of cards while we waited for Luke to finish work. He finished around 5pm and while he ate his Christmas lunch my brother-in-law set up the Wii and they played Mario Kart. My parents neighbours came over for dinner, and some of my parents friends did also, so while they were having drinks outside, things got heated inside over an intense game of Phase Ten between Luke, my sister Ash, my brother-in-law Allan & myself. Tantrums were thrown, and apologies were said!

All up it was a nice, quiet Christmas with my family. And I'm guessing its going to be our last quiet one for a while! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Santa was good to you!
