Christmas in the Hills

After the little three days hike at the Prom, (I talked about it in my previous blog post, here) we headed back home, ready for a very long Christmas day: we had very big plans for the day. Initially, I didn’t plan to have my Camera with me, but then I realised it could have been a good idea: it’s nice to be able to capture these special Family moments.

And it was great! Everyone was so happy and relaxed!

I share few photos here in the blog as a little ‘thank you’ to everyone that contributed to make this Christmas so special. It’s amazing to be part of such a beautiful Community. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

The day starts with morning coffee at our friends Lauren and Theo, with their beautiful daughter Alyssa.

One of Alyssa’s gifts was a hand written book with all the memories of her firsts months of life…and in the book were some of the pictures we took in different photo shooting sessions we had in the past few months!!! It was really exciting!

Lunch is at our front neighbours: Peta and Glenn, their three daughters, Peta’s Sisters and her daughters from New Zealand, Glenn’s Brothers and two nephews and one of them’s girlfriend. Yes, just few people.

We then have dessert with our back neighbours: Stewart and Caesar.

The end of the day is with Joy and Rob and with Rob’s Father who is 99 years old!
