Another Merry Christmas Post!

the tree this morning
 As I wait for our Christmas lunch to finish cooking I have been checking out blogs. (I love having a computer near the kitchen!) So many good wishes and Merry Christmas' in the blogosphere today. I hope you are all having a wonderful day wherever you are. We are spending the day in Melbourne with five of our eight. We are missing the other three and their families, but we're having a good day. We started the day by having the Elders over for breakfast. Pancakes with ice cream. (Christmas day really is all about food!) Then we opened our presents and laughed a lot. Now we are in the prepare Christmas lunch and play games phase. Next will be the overfed and play games phase. I am looking forward to the jigsaw phase which will take place this evening!

Meanwhile, have a look at the gingerbread mansion that we built this week for a large family to devour!  It required four Ikea flat pack gingerbread houses and lots of imagination.
