Christmas at the Wood house

img_0012.jpgChristmas day was spent with Dad and the 5 of us having a lovely roast dinner on the back decking under the new umbrella. We topped it off with a nice walk with the dog in the reserve.pict0006.jpg

Boxing day was also at our house and we had 21 here for lunch (including

Hannah who drove down from Hamilton in the morning). Hannah bought Shan a punching bag for Christmas… we suspect that is so that he will stop using her for boxing practise.

Strangely enough…… the ‘in laws’ all ended up on the back decking and the 4 sisters and Dad ended up out the side under the pergola. Admittedly, it is often hard to handle the four of us sisters together. Dad must have been feeling brave.

As you can see, the guys were having a lovely time out the back. Glenn said it was peaceful enough to meditate. Obviously he couldn’t hear the 11 Grandchildren, the dog barking nor the ‘Christmas music’ which Blake had provided.

EVEN the cricket on the TV didn’t drag them inside!!

As usual, I look forward to these events with great anticipation but they seem to end before I know it. We don’t catch up enough nowadays unfortunately so we need to savor them.

Only 7 more sleeps til we go to Egypt 🙂
