First of all, let me get a photo on here of this little BEAUT!
Christmas Eve was spent getting things ready for the holiday and in the evening spending time making sugar cookies, and making/decorating our homemade candy houses. I was going to call them 'gingerbread houses', but that ends up implying that I actually baked gingerbread-and that would be a total lie! We used the budget/large family approach and built our houses with cookies.
|I think it's clear to see who's is the best here....|
Here is a picture of our tree. I was proud that we finally did a somewhat life sized version of a Christmas tree this year. Total cost=$34 (including decorations!!). I also find it weird here that they use evergreen trees since they don't grow them here.
For Christmas meal we went to our friends' Luke and Sarah's, and then everyone came to ours the next day for a BBQ and a swim. I was pretty bad at taking pictures though:
|Usually Christmas crackers have a plastic mustache, or maybe a toy car. Luke's had an electronic book light?!?|
|It was so HOT! Our crowns were sweating to our heads!!|
It was a good holiday, and it was fun to have Chris' family up to Rockhampton!
