Our Three Christmases

We were lucky enough to celebrate Christmas 3 times in our family this year.      Firstly we celebrated with our extended family - a group of cousins of mine try to get together a couple of times each year at the Grand Hotel at Wentworth Falls and this year was no exception.    We have been meeting at the "Grand" for well over twenty years now.     It is a good meeting place as we come from all over the State - Sydney, Bathurst, Central Coast and south coast.    


Our second celebration was our family Christmas which was held early due to our son and daughter-in-law travelling  to Tamworth over the Christmas period.   As you can see Santa was very generous again  this year.   

We were lucky enough to score one of those boxes holding the most delectable truffles made by our DDIL.

And our third Christmas was on the real Christmas day celebrated at mum and dad's house.    I was lucky enough to be seated next to the prawns - what a pity that it is only mum and I that eat prawns. 

I was given some lovely gifts and amongst them were these quilting books and magazines.  Lots and lots of gorgeous quilts to add to my growing list.    

Next celebration is New Year's Eve.    We have the champers in the fridge chilling along with some yummy cheeses and nibbles to help bring in the new year.   

Happy sewing and see you all next year.
