Happy Christmas photos 2013

I hope you are all having a happy Christmas.  It is 5.45 pm on Boxing Day here in Sydney.  Yesterday it poured ran all day so we couldn't sit outside but now the sun is shining.

Here are some of our Christmas photos taken with Lynda's camera.

Lynda's Christmas tree taken without the flash Christmas eve,  everything looks purple but it isn't
with the flash
Tony and I came down to Lynda's on Christmas Eve, Emily came down last week in the train.  Angela, Graham and Brianna came down by car yesterday afternoon, Sarah and Tim came by train last night and Jack's father brought him today.

Angela made this Christmas tree skirt for Lynda for Christmas
 Brianna with her batman mask (from Macodonalds)opening her large dinosaur (she received lots of dinosaur different sizes plus lego) on Christmas day
 Angela and Brianna
 Sian in her Christmas presents

Tim, Sarah, Emily and Sian on the lounge
 I sat in Lynda's place while she took this photo, I was sitting in the end, Boxing day lunch (we had our main Christmas meal on Boxing day as so that Emily's boyfriend Jack could be with us)
 Lynda put camera on timer to take this one and she popped in but you can't see Brianna as Sian leaned forward.

I hope that you all had a happy Christmas.   We had a happy day yesterday except for Angela who became ill with a tummy bug Christmas night (yesterday).  She was supposed to cook lunch today but she was not well enough so Lynda did it with help from Sarah (who made the stuffing for the chickens) and Tony who did some cutting up.  Everyone else helped set the tables.

Lynda made me a lovely calendar with photos of all the family.

Graham and his friend Anthony have taken Sarah and Tim, Emily and Jack, and Sian to the movies tonight to see the Hobbit.   Brianna is too young to go so she is playing here.

If I had been at home I would have cropped these photos first but Lynda doesn't have a photo editor program on her computer.
