Our Christmas Day and the weekend...

For the first time ever, we sat together and had eggs and bacon and mimosas for breakfast. We are usually running around preparing things for lunch.
~
Then we headed for Beachport where we had our family Christmas in the caravan park. It was horrendously hot and windy so there were paper plates, dust and twigs flying about, not pleasant at all. 
~
But most importantly, my mother was able to join us. My sister picked her up from her nursing home then dropped her back a few hours later.  She enjoyed her lunch but the heat made it very uncomfortable for her.  She was quite a trooper!
~
We then hopped in the car and drove 400kms to Adelaide to be with Bri who had had to work an early nursing shift Christmas morning.
~
~
Kirby set the Christmas table...
~
I prepared oysters kilpatrick...
~
...and a salad.
~
Presents were placed under the tree...
~
Yum!
~
Gus did zesty lemon prawns...
~
~
Kirby's boyf Nate did a rolled pork roast and kipfler potatoes...
~
Bri made a fantastic pavlova!
~
Boxing Day breakfast! Ham on toast!
~
We went to see Star Wars at the Gold Class cinema in the afternoon...I was scared that I'd fall asleep like I usually do...
~
...but it was so action packed that I stayed awake and really enjoyed it!
~
It was in 3-D and apart from seeing things at Movie World, this was my first 3-D movie, very good!
~
Last night we had lamb cutlets, expertly cooked by Gus, baked sweet potTo with coconut yoghurt dressing and a green salad.
~
~
After the hot weather on Christmas Day, the weather has been perfect since!
~
I hope everyone is enjoying some quality family time and taking it easy, we are!
Cheers - Joolz xx
