One for the parents

Christmas was excellent this year. Yes, it was cold, and yes, we and the other 5 kiwis we were with would have been in NZ with our families if given the choice. In spite of this, though, we had a fabulous 48 hours camping at our Ealing flat eating, drinking, playing games, watching Bro town, eating, drinking, and then eating some more. Here are some of our Christmas photos that are appropriate for parental viewing:
The Christmas Plant. Mum and Ray and the Benneydale lot - note your parcels are there unopened on Christmas morning in spite of wanting to rip into them from the moment they arrived. Stephen practically had to be physically restrained. Stephen, Erica, Sarah, some badges from home and a crazy plastic banana holder. Cool. I a m jealous of the badge that says "Oma Rapiti". Heh. Speed scrabble. AKA best game ever.

Chocolate pudding. Mmmmm.
Phil and the sangria. Who knew it dripped like that ..

Tim catches up on some holiday reading

Thanks for our presents, whanau!

Your flat looks amazing you guys! Glad you had a good 'cold' Christmas! :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Seeing these photos I'm thinking I may have met Erica, can that be right?

Probably - she was in the hostel with me in 1999 when you came to stay!

Man thinking that was now 9 years ago makes me feel old ...

Thought as much! Good to know my memory isn't completely shot.

I know! Can't believe it's been that long already. It still seems like 'just the other day'.
