Christmas Night 2006

For Christmas dinner we went to Tim's parent's place...

Christmas Lunch

We went to my Mum and Dad's place for Christmas lunch - Emmy and Jared were very spoilt - again!!

Christmas Presents for Jared...

Jared loved his Lightning McQueen car with lots of buttons and sounds...the mower was also a big hit (he doesn't get that from Daddy)!!

Christmas Presents for Emmy...

After church we came home and unwrapped presents...Em didn't really know what was going on - but she liked playing with decorations from the tree!

Hanging up our Christmas stockings...

Jared didn't really understand why we were hanging Christmas stockings - but they certainly enjoyed them in the morning! Emmy loved her teaset and plastic food - Jared was very excited about all his new little cars!

Christmas Eve at Tim's Parent's Place

We all went to Tim's Mum and Dad's place for dinner on Christmas Eve...Jared loved his Lightning McQueen torch and car mat. Emmy climbed into her new doll's pram and looked surprised when the velcro wouldn't hold her and the pram collapsed!

Christmas Eve - Our New Slippy Slide!

We decided to give Emmy and Jared their main Chistmas present (the little house with tunnel and slippery dip) early because we wouldn't be at home much at all on Christmas day...they had lots of fun in the empty box and helping Daddy put it up...

The Eve of Christmas Eve - Cutting the Gingerbread House

Since we were going to Tim's parent's place on Christmas Eve - we decided to cut the Gingerbread House (my first attempt - made with a kit at church) the night before Christmas Eve before going to visit the Christmas lights in Mt. Annan...they were very excited!
