Merry Christmas, Part 2

So did you have a Merry Christmas? We certainly did!

This photo is of our little tribe in December, a photo we were going to send out on Christmas cards but didn't get organised enough! It's at a little inlet in Carrum just down the road, while we were out for a walk at sunset.

Back to Christmas: around the day itself was very busy with my relatives coming over to our house and Olivia doing a brilliant job catering and hostessing, and 2 trips down to Olivia's hometown Leongatha in Gippsland for her side of the family. We also spent Boxing Day at the beach with Olivia's extended family (there were so many there that I didn't get to even talk to everyone) for the first time in my ten years of knowing my wife, which was also exciting.

Most memorably after the travel and seeing family are the presents, and eating. I don't know about anyone else but I find I nearly always eat far, far too much at Christmas. This year I did slighty better, and we even worked it off as a family by being fairly active and going for walks. In terms of pressies I love shopping for and giving them...and I reckon TJ and Maya ended up with a pretty good haul.

Santa was also good to me this year as I got a basketball DVD and the "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" Extended Edition DVD, some clothes, a Borders bookshop gift voucher to share with my wife (thanks Dave!) and chocolates.

I hope your Christmas was safe and well!

If I'm ever in the area, you'd better have that DVD (not the basketball one!) handy for when I pop in... :)
