Christmas In Katikati


I really don't think anything beats a summer Christmas, and as someone who was born in the Northern Hemisphere I enjoy the relaxed summer atmosphere of Christmas down under far better than a white Christmas. The sun, the kids playing outside, camping, the smell of sunblock and the drinks in the sun. That's if it doesn't rain of course!
This year it rained, but there were glimpses of clear weather and we made the most of it.

Here's our special little Christmas in pictures for you.
















This was probably our quietest Christmas ever. But it was just what we needed.

It's been one heck of a year.

The pohutukawas are so red this year, the days had been so sunny and warm and then wham Christmas day was grey, dull and drizzly - but hey we had a good time too, too much food, lots of laughing and good times at our bach (for the first time ever) on Christmas Day. Sun has been out today but more crappy scrappy stuff on the way. By the way Donna Hay's Gingerbread recipe is a winner. Happy healthy New Year x

It is funny to see shorts on Christmas...we had a green Chistmas but snow was only a couple of days away. Thanks for sharing
