Merry Christmas everybody!!!!! Well it's warm here today, about 26 Deg, phew! it feels warmer. Kids snuck out at 5:30am and had their first peek uder the tree - the excitment was just too much. They had us up about 5:45am - way too early. Everybody enjoyed their presents, lots of DVD's and books.
The cook went straight into action and lunch preparation was frenetic. We had harrisons favourite - the four meat lunch, comprising; roast lamb, ham, turkey and prawns. Lashings of salads and fruit and some new things we hadn't tried at Christmas before, these included baked garlic.
Lots of things came straight from the farm garden - potatos, garlic and salads amoung the many. In the middle of all that, the family tradition of building a gingerbread Christmas house was undertaken and a cottage was duly constructed from specula cookies and lollies - can't wait to get into that!
Things have started top dry off out here now and I suppose it's time to start thinking about bushfires. Luckily I've still got a fire pump and the new tank we bought earlier in the year.
Well, I need to get back to farm things now, feeding the pigs and filling waters. Hope you all had a great Christmas and maybe we'll catch up during the year.
Today's picture is the Valley View Christmas Tree, after the presents were opened.
