Last Wednesday we had a Christmas lunch with the elderly from Chinatown. We had a yummy lunch of turkey and ham and salads. My kids came along to help serve and hand out presents. There were games as well...a form of pass the balloon and when the music stopped whoever was holding the balloon had to come and dance for us. Boy do these ladies know how to boogey and to Rihanna no less!
Christmas day was spent at home with our friends Jan and Hilly Boer and my mum in law (she arrived that morning from Holland). We had a lovely lunch where everyone ate far too much. My hubby and I had made a pavlova (a traditional NZ Dessert) and it was REALLY Yummy! Sorry we ate it before I got a chance to take a photo of it! The kids opened all the presents after arriving back from the airport and were preoccupied for the rest of the day. Of course DAD had to help (play) with some of them too.
Today it was time for more work in Chinatown and the ladies were busy finishing up some of the baby quilts that they had been working on. Our quilts seem to be getting brighter and more colourful as we go.
