When the Reindeer Dust Settles.....

Yep, Santa came and went as promised...


So, with 4 expectant kiddies waiting patiently...
(I seriously don't have a single photo of Lachlan not pulling a face!)
We opened pressies...




Ate chocolate before breakfast!! ...


And jumped in the car, camper all hitched up and ready to go to one of our favourite local camping spots for a couple of nights....


So, I relaxed on the bank and watched my special people have a play in the water....


Camera in one hand, my Christmas Corona in the other   :) .....
(well, I've worked hard and I enjoyed a small indulgence! lol)


The kids checked the yabby pots..... every half hour! ...


While Troy worked on Christmas dinner....


And I made sure a little Christmas magic came camping with us...


Complete with fairy and icicle lights...


We finished off Christmas with a family movie night... HP and the Deathly Hallows Part II, all huddled around the laptop!  :)  Not glamourous, a little bit grubby, too many insects and a dose of sunburn for mum (oops).... wouldn't change it for anything though!

Merry Christmas from the Winks's.
Wherever you were and however you celebrated your holiday, I hope it found you spending some magical time with your special people.... 

 

I had a much better self-timed photo to share, only to discover little Master 3 had a finger almost completed embedded up one nostril!!  This one will have to do... :)

Cheers for now...
