Christmas & NYE Wrap Up

(Finally my camera is back from it's unintentional stay at my parents). Christmas and NYE is gone for another year, no doubt it will be back around just as quick as it is every year!

Christmas started at home for presents from Santa...

Then off to my parents for Christmas lunch...
Our New Year's Eve is always spent with good friends Greg and Sarah (for the past 15 years) and now their son, our Godson, Sam. We normally cook up a storm at one of our places, the kids run riot for a couple of hours and then they are thrown into bed at a "reasonable" hour while us old folks try and make it to midnight.

This year, a couple of days before NYE my Mum called up out of the blue to say that they wanted to take the kids. Every year NYE is big for them, they head away for a couple of nights with their good friends but this year after some sad losses of friends too close too Christmas they felt like a quiet one. Some how the planets aligned and Sarah's Mum was free to take Sam. We booked into one of our favourite restaurants (which happens to be walking/staggering distance home) and had an outstanding degustation menu with plenty of wine to go with it. A fantastic night to remember.

They are so incredibly adorable. I love all the dress up fairy costumes! Happy New Year, a few days late.
