… Mistletoe and wine… Children singing Christian Rhymes…” (Anyone else grow up on Cliff Richard Christmas music like me?)
We spent our Christmas day this year partly in Christchurch and partly in Otaki (and partly in airports and on a plane) … Here are some photos of our Christmas this year…
Highlights of the day include… Noah sharing treats from his Christmas stocking with Isabelle because she thought Santa hadn’t come for her! (Her stocking was hiding under her pillow!); Noah falling off his seat while pulling his Christmas cracker: Noah’s reply when Auntie Holly asked him if he was a gentleman: “No, I’m a soft man (said rubbing his cheek – no stuble); Isabelle being so tuckered out that she slept with her eyes open on the couch at the airport – it was a bit freaky!; An impromtu nativity play courtesy of Otaki Nana, Noah, Isabelle and their cousins (I did take some photos of this but they’re a bit too blurry); and lots of fun and delicious food shared with family and friends.
Also, I was rather tickled by Noah and Isy’s decorations … I think they thought anything red and green was a goer. I particularly like the inclusion of Po and the tomato!
It was Pipi’s first Christmas but I didn’t get many photos of her – mainly because she slept through most of the festivities!
I hope your Christmas was wonderful and that your New Year brings much joy!
