More of Christmas

Christmas Day was an early start for us all with little ones in the house ....  we went around to Ash and Tims to share gifts with the little boys all together which was great fun !   Even Santa paid a visit in the local Rural Fire Service truck .... much to the delight of the little ones !

After lunch the little boys enjoyed the gingerbread house ....

It was so yummy .... Jonah carefully deciding which colour smartie he would like !!

And finally a view from above as it was broken into pieces and consumed by us all ....

That evening after the kids all went home, Jonah was just sitting beside the Christmas tree and reading a book to himself ... such a little cutie ....

He did enjoy the swing and teepee which we bought him for Christmas !   He is so much like his dad at the same age .... they are like peas in a pod !!

He loved playing with our door bell with Uncle Sam !

And enjoyed the beach with mum and dad ...

We have had some picture perfect days .... ideal for relaxing swims and building castles with the kids ....

The teepee became the favourite reading room and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time with our little grandsons all together ....

I even decided to start a new Christmas stocking which is the latest Shepherds Bush Christmas Stocking creation .... this one will be for one of our children .... I think its time they had their own heirloom stocking each .... then there are their wives and husbands .....  stitching, stitching forever I will be I think !!  


  1. Oh that baby in the swing how gorgeous, so that is your son as a baby? Very cute. Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas, hope 2018 is a great one for you all.

  2. Fiona: Thank-you for sharing such beautiful photos, what a wonderful family you have.
