We've had a wonderful Christmas Day

To be able to spend Christmas with your family is fantastic, we spent Christmas here at home this year, for the last few years we have made the trip to the North Island, but this year we didn't have to drive anywhere too far.

I got to talk to my Mum and Dad this morning, which was little bittersweet actually, knowing this year that I wouldn't see them over the Christmas - New Year holiday. We have made it north at some stage of the holiday season at some stage, but this year we won't.

Mum and Dad were spending Christmas Day with my brother Neil and his wife Arlene and my other brother Kevin (both the boys work on the same dairy farm) so this year they got to spend time with them. Next year I think we will have to work on getting them down here for Christmas. I guess its one of the hazards of living half a country apart. Okay so our country isn't quite as big as some but that stretch of water between the islands is the expensive bit!

The girls had an absolute blast today, thoroughly spoilt! But then I guess you could say we all were. We are so very fortunate, and we do count our blessings.

For those of you for whom Christmas is yet to come, may your day be filled with as many blessings as ours has been. And those of you who like us are at the tail end of Christmas day join me in a glass of water and count your blessings too.
