Christmas Day 2016 was a super day - we had a wonderful time with our family, lots of yummy food, laughter and fun times.
These crochet Christmas puddings were the last of my 2016 gifts, the last few finished a few days before Christmas. The pattern I used can be found here.
We have a few little family traditions at Christmas time, including hubby taking his girls out to lunch on Christmas Eve,
and a drive around town looking at Christmas lights.
Christmas morning we were up bright and early to see what Santa had left and other pressies were opened too.
Then it was time to catch up with Glenn's family for breakfast and have another round of opening presents with Hannah's cousins.
We had our Christmas meal about 2pm followed by dessert.
The males in my family are not very photo obliging, lol, except for hubby!
Since Boxing Day, the weather has been hot hot hot so we've been spending a lot of time outside and in the pool.
Hannah was just thrilled with the trampoline we got her for Christmas.
Over the past few days I've also started the annual sort through of cupboards, wardrobes, etc and this afternoon the Christmas decorations have been put away. DH has been busy working outside on his latest project, a new pergola by our swimming pool.
In a few days time we head away on our annual trip to Lake Taupo, which we're all looking forward to so much. Hannah is all set with her new rash suit and board!
I'll be back soon to share some of the lovely gifts I received from friends, and also a few gifts I can now reveal.
See you soon xx
