When its all said and done

It has always amazed me how much effort we put into christmas for weeks beforehand and than it seems to end so quickly. It is all worth it though to have a day with family, friends, yummy food and of course pressies.

We got up yesterday morning and opened our pressies. Nothing makes me happier than the look on someone's face when you have got them the perfect gift.

My dad and sister opening their presents.

We than had an amazing lunch with all the usual yummy food plus huge prawns for entrees (prawns are my favourite so this was a huge treat for me).

Delicious christmas food

I than headed out to Brendans parents house were we had more presents, more food and scrabble. It was a pretty low key day but really made me appreciate all the amazing people i have in my life and how its the simple things that really make life worth living.

I thought i would share some of my favourite pressies with you, as however materialistic it is I love seeing what other people got for christmas.

My FOUR pairs of Peter Alexanderpj's, yup I love them!

Scarfs, headband (does it look familar?), Ray Martins autobiography, tree of life necklace, my Kiki K 2010 diary and make up bag.

Than the electronics; electric salt and peper shakers, set top box and digital photo frame!

Overall, it was a wonderful christmas and I was very spoilt. I am spending boxing day in my pjs reading my book, writing letters, catching up on blogs and later watching movies with my sister. I hope everyone had a truelly magical christmas and  I look forward to hearing everyones stories. Now bring on the NewYears celebrations!
