Photo Overload

Thought I had better share some christmas photos seeing I have been so slack...
I have just spent an hour loading photos off my camera - as my computer was full I had to move to hard drive and delete alot of albums....

so here is a glance of our 2010 Christmas
 Trimming the tree
 Zac's year to place the angel on top
 butter wouldnt melt in theirs mouths....
didnt get a chance to do xmas cards - but I got the photo perfect

got to have lunch with Nan - we suprized her, Zac, Meah & I met Dad and Nan
at Toronto Workers Club.
 the kids gave her a nice tin of biscuits and some slices I baked

Xmas Eve Eve Eve drinks and secret santa with the gang
 We called into Nana Taylors on our way to the Moutains
she looked great - and Jason did a few jobs for her - she was very happy
and Aunty Rel arrived just before we left
 Christmas @ home.... the Blue Mountains...
We arrive on the Thursday - it was hot as we set up the camper in the driveway...
But Friday we woke to a typical mountain day of cold mist and rain!!!!!

Dad's xmas job - everyday!!!!
 all the kids xmas eve in their hand made stockings
 It is a tradition with us to have a present of new PJs xmas eve and then have a photo in the stocking
well Miss Sienna would not sit near anyone
 even with a bribe of a treat
 but chocolate FINALLY worked!!!!
 story time with Grammie is always a must
 but even more special when its with Great Grandma
[they have a special bond - born on the same day 91 yrs apart]

Santa has been to Poppy's World
 Jedd's 1st xmas
 Sienna's Big presnt from US [Zhu Zhu pets]
 an excited little girl with her own DS
 Seafood lunch - YUMMO!!!!
 and guess what Zac got....
exactly what he asked for - an iPod touch....
after i took this pic he jumped on me from where he was to say thanks...
gotta love it when they get that excited!!!
 all the family together is always a special moment....

now because we went camping straight from Poppy's world we emailed Santa to leave any 'school stuff' at home..... so it was christmas all over again on Sunday 2.1.11....

so thats our xmas in a nut shell... just a few out of the 230 pics taken...
next post will be holiday photos...

maybe tonight!!!!

Peta, love the new look of the site. These photos of your family are just beautiful! It's so nice to see the kids so excited over their gifts, rather than just expect them. Looking forward to catching up with you soon Tash xoxox
