Too much food and wine....

Well, I guess its not Christmas unless you overindulge!   Got home last night and had salad and pasta .  But tonight there is more ham, salads, new potatoes....and trifle....and more chocolate.....sigh!!!!!

Vinnie came with us to Papamoa  to stay with  the BIL & SIL cos he won't be left behind (but we left Riley with a house full of poodles and Brodie with his best buddie Solly and family).  I almost died when I saw the 14 year old (middle) and 16 year old nieces (far left) ... they are both close to 6 feet tall and make my stepdaughter (far right holding her brother Vinnie!) look almost short ( she towers over me!) 

Nephew tuckered out after opening all his loot. 

 and naughty Hattie who got in trouble for chasing the cats!

Hope everyone had a lovely christmas and now its back to work for some of us, then New Year !!! Yipee! Well, actually it'll be a very quiet New Year for us, DH will be on call so no drinking for him therefore no parties!!!!!

Its always kinda strange seeing you guys celebrate xmas with shorts & T's while over here its huge thick chunky sweaters with equally cosy socks and a constant stream of violent storms/hurricaines for company.

My girls all tower over me too, im 5ft 2 & already my 10yr old is taking me over lol.

hugs )
