2015 comes to an end

It's hard to believe another year has flown by and here we are at December 31 wondering what has happened !!  Our year has been amazing and hectic, full of lots of fun times, some sad times, but mostly lots of laughter and joy!   This past week has seen our son in law Tim have an emergency appendectomy on Boxing Day which necessitated david and I having to look after Jed for a few days while Ash spent time at the hospital with Tim ... All is well as he is now home and recovering.   On Christmas Day we skyped Sam in New York, but Nadia wasn't home from work yet ! 

We have had lots of beach days and swimming, paddle boarding, surfing and kite surfing ! 

Ash, Tim and Jed (and baby on the way) at the beach on Christmas Day ....

Chelsea Kye and Jed ....

Elliott and Jed playing with the gold Christmas decorations ! 

Stand up paddle boarding with Elliott 

Had a great day in Sydney yesterday kayaking out around Long Reef before dropping Elliott at the airport to head back to Perth and his lovely Andrea !      Just thought I would share this photo of our 4 treasures .... Sam, Ash, Chelsea and Elliott. 

And so here we are at home at the end of a busy Christmas time enjoying the fact that we are definitely  blessed beyond belief, and thankful for family and friends and good times.   I hope your year has been wonderful and that we all look forward to 2016 with anticipation of creative pursuits, family fun and a peaceful and relaxing start to the year !  Happy New Year to you all xx
