A Blessed Christmas!

We were indeed blessed this Christmas, to be able to begin our day here in our little home, singing carols - then to open gifts, enjoy a homemade Christmas breakfast, surprise the children with their new trampoline (!!!!), go to church to be with friends and worship our King, come home, enjoy our gifts, wrap a few more, deliver them, go to our dear friends the Bentley's for lunch (Cathy..... you are amazing, and thankyou from all of us!!), rush home, pack suitcases/ tidy up/ water gardens/ lock up the house etc. all in less than an hour, and hit the road by 3:30pm for the next part of our day!!!  Phew!!

The table setting Cathy set up was beautiful.... 
a red and white setting, little gift bags for us all with handmade gifts inside.....
and a scrumptious spread to eat!

Once arriving at the Sunshine Coast, we were able to spend time with my parents, brother, sister, and aunts and uncles and cousins.  SO nice to be with all the extended family!!  After more gifts, drinks and dinner, we travelled the short distance to Mum and Ray's unit to collapse into bed.  What a happy end to one of the best Chrismases I can ever remember!  Hope yours has been a peaceful, joyful time with the ones you love.  Christmas blessings to everyone!! :)

"Hark the Herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King.
Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled.
Joyful all ye nations rise, Join the triumph of the skies,
With angelic hosts proclaim, Christ is born in Bethlehem!
Hark the Herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King."
