Christmas day

Around our home

Our parish

Our Christ candle

The 'Christ child' was molded from beeswax by Dd1.

Some portraits


A pretty holy card


'Put this picture on your blog mum', he said.

Christmas dinner.

The last sunset of 2015

On the third day of Christmas

 A little bit of a mix up.  In the evening we found one young Turtledove fallen out of its nest, instead of three french hens ;)  Dd1 was only moments before expressing her longing for a pigeon or dove when she spied a young Turtledove on the ground under one of the tree's in our yard.  We are currently raising it until it can be released.  And Dd1 is hoping even more that we will be able to have some birds of our own soon.


This little boy and chocolate.  He hasn't had too much chocolate previously but discovered a love for it this day.  Everyone had to hide their chocolate if they did not want to risk it been eaten lol.


The 'j' in rejoice was missing.  There is always something going missing somewhere isn't there.

The ugliness of a pudding without it's jacket on.  And me, only getting to cooking it on my birthday which is several days after Christmas!  It did taste very nice though!

Spiders in our backyard on New Years eve.  Nice to know I shouldn't go running about the garden without a torch in the evening!

And finally, no photo, but me, blogging instead of getting ready for our holiday to Albany, Western Australia!  I'd better get cracking my friends ;)

God bless all!  May the peace of the Christ Child be yours this Christmastide and a very Happy 2016!


  1. What a wonderful Christmas celebration!

  2. It looks like you had a lovely Christmas! Your family is beautiful! It seems so funny to me that our friends in the southern hemisphere go to the beach for Christmas when we are all bundled up here in the North, but I suppose that seems funny to you. lol

    1. Thanks so much for your comment! I should give you a prize for being the first person I don't know who has ever commented (in my whole three years of blogging) lol :)

      Yes it must seem funny! And it's funny how many things that are wintery form a part of our Christmas here in Australia. Hot puddings, Christmas cards with snow and robins. I should love to see a winter Christmas some day!

      Thanks again so much for visiting! God bless!
