Last Day of 2012...........a 'few' Christmas Photo's.

Hello to all my lovely friends, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and taking the time to read my blog, this year. On the whole I have had a good year, a few ups and downs and worries, like most people but with a positive outlook on life, we just get through it. So to all my friends and family, I hope you all have a Happy, Peaceful New Year !

This post is very photo heavy, so understand if you want to skip through, as most of you know, I have my blog printed into a book at the end of each year, so like to see my favourite photo's in the book.

Here are a 'few' of my Christmas photo's, I had such a wonderful time this year with my family, starting with a trip to Thomas Land at Drayton Manor.






We took a train ride on Rosie, one of Thomas's friends.






Big hugs for her cousin.


We saw Polar Express 4D, little Olivia fell off her seat, as she couldn't see with her glasses on, she wasn't hurt so we did have a little giggle.





While we were queuing, we got to listen to a wonderful choir and we saw the real Santa, he even knew that Mya had a new coat !!!!

 A photo of all my Mom & Dad's grandchildren.

Lastly, we went on a few rides.


On Christmas Eve, we always go to my sister's house for tea, then the big day !!!! Santa stopped at our house, we were all very lucky this year and was totally spoilt.


The girls loved their Onsies.


I have been extremely lucky this year and totally spoilt by Mick and my girls.



These presents were from my girls, I love my Pandora bracelet and the wonderful print by Charlotte Bird, I'd seen it in a shop up Stoke when we went to visit Jodie. She went back to the shop and bought it for me, carrying it all the way back home on the train.


These were off Mick, I have some more Rooster yarn, so will be carrying on with my Bobble Blanket in the New Year.



We had my Mom and Dad round for Christmas lunch, I made us all a little pillow box with a Lottery ticket, scratch card and a chocolate inside. I was the only one who won anything, they said it was a fix, hehe.

After lunch is when the chaos begins, the whole family comes around for tea, there was 17 of us this year.
Each year, my Mom and Dad and even the dog, dress up and give out more presents, the little ones love it, shouting 'we know it's you, Grandad'.





So that was my Christmas, this year, sorry it's such a long rambling post but thank you for letting me share it with you.

Have a wonderful New Years Eve and a Happy New Year.

Your ohana just knows how to celebrate! There used to be a Thomasland around here in the Bay Area but sadly it's gone. Me and the girls love Polar Express. It's on every year and we are mesmerized every time.
So cute how you were spoiled at Christmas. Hooray for you. Hau oli makahiki hou!
