Christmas Day 2016



We had a quiet start to our day this year..... 
our Corinne has moved to Japan so we missed her cheerful face on Christmas morning....
So after breakfast we were off to Heather's place for Christmas lunch...


Gift giving was first up for the day.....
we did fun pressies this year..... some funny some good.....
June with the pixie ears, Alex and hiding behind him is Bianca...



June with Auntie Liz messing around on the pool toy....


Heather and Sylvio with their gifts.....

Heather and Dad have their "thing" that they do...... 
to see who can buy the ugliest gift and Gav out did himself this year with
this parrot which records everything you say and squawks loudly, 
it was sooooo funny..... 


Oh my gosh we don't look very happy do we ?
We were though...... honest.....Liz messing about again.....lol



Gavan and Sylvio



Then on to lunch.....
as usual it does take a long time to get everything on our plates ....

Great lunch Heather..... you did a terrific job....

no piccies of our dessert..... trifle yummoooooo


Thanks for a really great day and hopefully we will have many more together....
Unfortunately Rob and Mel were unable to come to lunch but we did get to see them eventually....
 This is Mel's pressie....
A quilt and matching cushions....


I like this photo as it appears as though I made 2 quilts but alas not so.....
Large mirrored wardrobe doors make all the difference.....


It is quite a large quilt and looked pretty good on my bed before it was gifted......
Mel now has it on her bed......


An surprise gift from the lovely Lynda.....
A terrific embroidered tea towel and a stocking christmas cake....
and it was yummie......
Thank you Lynda.....


Heather and I went to the shops on Christmas Eve so we had to stop for a little morning tea....



I do hope that you all enjoyed your Christmas Day as much as we did.

Toodles for now

what fun... I love the silly gifts idea - and that ugly gift one too... they are the ones that make so much laughing and fun!
