Boxing Day 08


I can't believe 08 is almost over!! It has gone sooo fast!
Yesterday we had shane over for breakfast, champagne brekky with bacon and eggs (I had my sparkling grape juice hehe). That was really nice, then early arvo we went to my Aunty Jills place for christmas dinner, was good to catch up with a few of my cousins, and Nirvana got to meet some of hers. There was only an 1/8 of the family there, as the rest were in Nelson. Nirvana got absoutely spoilt!! Had lamb on the spit and turkey, and yummy veges!! Food was divine. Had a lovely time.

Not doing anything special today, cleaning day haha.

Haydens 21st and Alishas 20th

My DP and BF had a shared bday party this year, hehe was definitely a good night!! So since it was his 21st we had to have a few embarrasing things, we had a photo wall, from birth til now, and he had to wear a green wig and a big top hat with the numbers 21 on it. We had a potluck dinner/BBQ was an awesome night, good turn out and I think everyone had a good time :) Hayden got heaps of presents!! So I am glad he got to celebrate his 21st :)
