"Ho Ho Ho-ly Limp Tree"
:) and Merry Christmas from Wanaka.
It has now been confirmed first hand....Santa does visit
the southern hemisphere (although reports are that he has been seen wearing
sandals and red swim trunks instead of his regular fare). He managed to
find Cassidy and bring her the "sparkly bike" she asked him for.
As for the adults..... we realized that Christmas
really is for kids (...and food...and cards....and good wine :)
Although we missed family and friends back home we had a
wonderful holiday. We were joined by the
Bartow Family (Gary, Corinne &
Kyra) and we managed to have good weather and even a real Christmas tree (second
hand from Cassidy's pre-school when they were done with it ...(see above) ....I
"had" to photograph it in the dark cause it was too pitiful otherwise.....I must
say....it was the PERFECT TREE for us ).
Below are a few pictures from our time together. Also see
the movies from Christmas Day and our
2003 Christmas Card.
