'Twas The Weekend Before Christmas

And it's been a hectic couple of weeks. Over this time we've attended a couple of Christmas picnics which was part of both our office's Christmas festivities. The thing was, both were held at the same day. We first went to my wife's Christmas picnic at Rymil park. It was brunch thing so we had a great eggs, snags and bacon picnic and the kids had a fun time at the park area. We didn't stay long as we had to go to my office's Christmas function at a different vanue. So, straight from brunch we went to lunch. Aside from the catered lunch, there was a huge fun slide, jumping castles, pony and camel rides as well as a visit from Santa too!

Of course, the kids had the most fun. Not only did they get their fill of the jumping castle ( which actually deflated while they were on! ) they also did the huge fun slides ( with me of course! ) but they got presents too!

At any rate, it's also the start of school holidsay so the wife is taking time off work to stay and keep the kids occupied for some of the school holidays. She already has her hands full not only with making sure the kids don't get bored but also to plan out our own family's Christmas activities.

As for me, I still have to be at the office but hopefully it wont be too busy though.

At home we're sort of busy too as we're preparing to host a few friends over for Christmas day lunch. Nothing much really but I guess it's what Christmas is all about, just getting together with friends. It's so different here because we don't have family nearby, it's really the friends that make Christmas around here for us.

At any rate, speaking of friends and family, if you read this you probably are one of ours and from our family to yours, we hope you have a safe and happy Christmas and a joyous New Years!
