Happy New Years everyone!!!!

To all my blogger Friends, wishing you all a very happy, healthy and creative new year!!

Lets hope this year is peaceful and all the financial doom and gloom improves.

I have finally got some batteries [well, nicked them from hubby's work camera!] and am sharing some summer Christmas pics for my o/s readers.

We had great day over at the farm with family and its always lovely to see all the cousins getting along so well.




One of our family traditions is that the pressies get opened after our Christmas dinner. sometimes that has been 10 pm in the evening, a rather long wait for the littlies!!

Papa dons a santa hat and the youngest has to help him hand out the presents. Ofcourse, we usually lose the helper after he or she gets a present but this year 'little G' did a wonderful job and stacked his up to open later!!!

This year we had a pinata.....first the kids...

go on bash it little G....



K gave it a pretty good whack....


Getting battered....




oops it fell off, but still intact. Uncle S to the rescue....


Go aunty s!! wouldve been my turn next!!


Collecting the spoils....




And of course it wouldnt be Christmas without the family cricket game....



Go Warnie.......


smacked for 6......


fielders....


Usually our cricket pitch would be dead lawn but we have had a bit of rain and everywhere is looking quite green at the moment....


Oh and look what my sil got for Christmas. Isnt it beautiful , its made from ironbark. It has a little possum head carved into the leg......which i didnt take a pic of!!

It looks like you had a mighty fun Christmas. I love seeing everyone in shorts. I'm knee deep in snow here and the cold winds are maddening.

Happy New Year! Here's to a creative 2009.

Love seeing the summer Christmas. We spend every other Christmas in Miami, FL and it looks very similar. But this year we were in snow country. Different kind of play!
