This is Christmas in the sub-tropics in Australia..
I love to see what December looks like in your part of the world (particularly if it includes snow), so if you care to, leave a link to your own December photos in the comment section.
Lauca and Cormac meet their new cousin, my sister’s first baby.
In the hospital room with my sister and brother-in-law.
Cold Greek yoghurt and cucumber soup. Most of the ingredients were grown in the garden.
Lunch on the deck for my friend and I. (All our children screamed simultaneously the entire time in the background. We drank champagne and stopped caring).
One of the gifts my brother gave to the kids for Christmas – cardboard moneyboxes.
Lauca and my friend’s daughter talking on a picnic rug in a park.
Lauca in the local rainforest.
Bush-walking with my kids and my friend’s kids.
Tree-climbing fallen trees.
Cormac doing Christmas morning dancing.
Lauca during breakfast at home on Christmas morning. (We’re a ‘sunglasses at the table’ kind of glamour family).
Christmas lunch at my sister’s.
Counting baby toes in matching reindeer t-shirts.
Cormac on my sister’s back steps.
Boxing Day BBQ. Cool enough weather to be drinking red wine in a mug.
My aunt taught me to crack a stock whip and then she taught the kids how to use a bow and arrow.
Lauca building a bridge.
Cormac stamping in puddles.
Me, earlier this month.
