Love the photos - looks like you all had a wonderful Christmas with the children especially enjoying the day. Your lounge room floor looked liked mine...lol. Ashley just walked in and I was so pleased that I recognised some of the people in the photos from others you had posted. He says you looked like you had a fantastic day too.

looks like a lovely relaxing day ! lounge floors seem to look the same all over :)

Kali said...

It all looks really lovely ~ a typical Christmas day. I hope you had a good one and that you are having a good relax today :)

Val said...

Alice, I really enjoyed the photographic record of your Christmas. And your girls are lovely!

Sandy said...

Alice your girls are lovely! I am really 'warming up' to the idea of a hot christmas. Mind if we join you next year? Sitting on that deck sipping beer appeals to me....

Alice said...

Thank you all for your lovely comments. The photos were taken very quickly so the focussing isn't the best - you know how it is, you try and get a shot before someone walks in front of the camera or disappears altogether. I should have got Russ to come and sit with the girls, but I'm sure they'd have done a disappearing act too if they knew I was going to take their photo.

Sandy, you would be very welcome out here to share our hot Christmas. The day was pretty well perfect here - 24 degrees F, a bit windier than we wanted but it was sheltered on the deck. Certainly no snow to shovel or anything like that.

Alice, your Christmas lunch spread looks just like ours did! Isn't it good to eat cold food in hot weather?

We had quite a hot day, but thankfully we have air conditioning in our rumpus room, so we set up a fold-a-table in there (heavily disguised under tablecloth etc!).

Thanks for your comment. Yes it sure is lovely to have husbands who love us just as we are. I'm sure it is no effort for your husband..you sound like a smart, straight-talking yet also very kind-hearted woman.

Glad you had a happy Christmas. I especially love the photo of your girls relaxing.

Alice your girls are beautiful!

It seems you had a real great Christmas! Good to celebrate with all the family! And the food looks delicious!

Typical Aussie family Christmas! Everyone looks so laid back - although maybe the lady holding the camera was by then a little tired. We had a hot dinner this year, but it was tolerable because we were in the dining-room with the aircon switched on.

Yum, curried eggs! And I see you replaced the mayo in time for the big day.

Peggy said...

yummy food, nice family, lovely home.. what more could you ask for

Sylvana said...

I don't think you are missing any color on that table! Lovely!

Just now getting around to checking the blogs, and it just doesn't seem possible that your sitting in the heat with air on, while we're sitting in the cold with the heat on......but we all seem to survive don't we..... Your dinner looks fabulous and so do your girls....barefoot...lol...but even here in the cold we all run around barefoot....but just not outside.....HAPPY NEW YEARS to you all........

What a sight for sore eyes your Christmas pictures are! I love that everyone is barefoot, there is a picnic supper of salads and fruits on the table, and people are wearing shorts. We have just spent two weeks driving through snow and sleet to visit our families. So now I'm ready for some of your weather! Happy New Year, Alice! May your garden grow beautifully this year! (p.s. I see you like to read as well as garden -- that is one boatload of books on your shelves!)
