Christmas in Wellington

This year (we last year now!) it was our turn to spend Christmas in Wellington - we hadn't been for xmas since the year Xander was born!

For two weeks we spent time with Granny Grampa and Aunty Angelina, eating them out of house and home, messing up the house and creating our usual ruckus! Big thanks to Grampa for making the property dog proof!! (we won't mention that Buster can jump and when there's a cat..well!)

The kids had an awesome time! (so did the grownups!)
Making a gingerbread house.
Making ice cream.
Having baths in the big spa bath
Playing with new friends Bridget and Lachlan
Meeting their third cousins (my cousin's kids!) McKaia, 4, and Grace, 11.
Visiting Granny's helicopter, plane and ambulance
Watching the Phoenix at the Westpac Stadium!
Having a kick at the new turf in Island Bay with Grampa....

Christmas Day was a real treat - lots of family, food and fun!

The kids only got to have 2 of these big baths!
