Christmas morning we woke up to the madness that is Santa and present deliveries, lollies and excitement in deciding which of Santa’s goodies will be making it to Grandma’s for Christmas day!
We had the car packed and a fresh bag of fancy croissants and were on the road by 9am and heading out to the western suburbs. Once we got to our destination it was time for celebratory drinks and cuddles and putting the family gifts under the Christmas tree.
I had the excellent idea to have matching Christmas t-shirts, which quite frankly has to be one of my better ideas to date! 🙂
Christmas was filled with far too much food, amazing drinks, a sea of Christmas paper and presents for days!
As I was away from my family for the day, I needed to have a bit of my families Christmas tradition and so I decided to cook my annual Christmas ham.
Quite a bit of pressure to pull of the perfect Christmas ham in front of 16 members of another family!
Thankfully it worked out beautifully and even though my sister has referred to me as a #hamwhore – I truly believe it was worth the risk ;).
Christmas went off without a hitch – the kids came home with a truck load of presents, I scored a new 24mm pancake camera lens for my Canon and G loved his new GoPro!
A wonderful day and a reminder that Christmas is about each other and good times and we cannot afford to forget the reason for the season :).
I don’t think there is anything in this world quite as cute as my husband with his Grandma Ivy – just gorgeous ❤ x
