Christmas Dinner

For Christmas dinner, Neen and I as well as my Mom, Dad, and my sisters Genny and Milo went to my Aunt Mary's. These are socks Tuna, Neen's little sister gave me. She bought me a pack of  5 and got to choose which ones I'd wear Christmas day...she picked the yellow ones! : )

The Christmas Feast!!


My favorite parts of the meal were Mary's red cabbage and her white chocolate cheese cake! My only regret being I only had room for one slice of cheese cake!


My sister Milo and me!

As a special surprise Neen and I bought a second Chinese Paper Lantern to release with the O'Briens too. As we did with Neen's family the night before everyone inscribed on the lantern their Christmas wishes and Nanna and I released the glowing orb into the night sky. No one there had ever seen nor released a lantern before so the whole event was greeted with giddy excitement by young and old alike. We  initially gathered in the back garden but as the lantern started to ascend out of sight the entire party ran through the house towards to front door to capture one last look. Every loved the experience and it's one we will never forget!
