So it's Boxing Day now, but I just wanted to extend a Merry Christmas to anyone actually reading this. I had a very good but very, very hot day yesterday. Christmas morn was awesome, got so many pressies and our dog Tess, a yellow labrador, just went nuts with the wrapping paper. Visited Mum's family in West Auckland, where we had a great lunch, pork and beef off the spit and lots and lots of Pavlova afterwards. Heaps of people there, I swear it just gets bigger every year! My cousin Kylie bought her new kitten to show us - he is the cutest thing ever, and his name is Huffer, adorable!!!
At around 4pm, my brother Adam and his girlfriend Sarah came over from Sarah's family lunch, and we drove together to Ararimu for my Dad's family dinner, which is about an hour south of Auckland, in, like, country area. Two new additions to that side of the family as well - my cousin Nick's new baby Piper, who's about five months and it was the first time we've got to see her, and my cousin Julianne's new baby Eliza, who's nearly three months. On top of that, Piper's older sister Scout, who's almost three years old - so it was like baby central. Got to play with some playdough, oh yeah!
Piper is SO cute, I wanted to take her home, such a good baby!

Anyway, thought I'd catalogue my Christmas haul:
