Merry Christmas to all our dear family, friends and fellow travellers! We are spending our first Christmas away from home at St Helen’s on the East Coast of Tasmania, with our friends The Bolgers. We have decorated the tree, cooked the Christmas cake and wrapped the presents. Tonight we joined the townsfolk of St Helen’s at the Annual Christmas Parade. It was fantastic to soak up the Christmas Spirit in the local way.
Back at home we prepared for Christmas Day with carols, accompanied by Spike on the guitar, and a few stories. We checked Santa’s progress on NORAD Santa Tracker, put the kids to bed and watched a Christmas movie.
We are grateful for this blog which has helped us to keep in contact with so many of our friends and family and want wish you all a peaceful, blessed Christmas wherever you are celebrating. We hope that you can enjoy this special time of year with your loved ones too,
With love from Spike, Kate, axo1000 and BloggiE!!!
Happy Christmas from us too. Glad you’re having so much fun, we are still reading with envy. Hoping to see you when you get back.
love the eddys
Merry Christmas happy travellers! We wish you a jolly, joyous, Jesus-soaked celebration. Fab to see your pics from yesterday. So glad you’re having fun in Tassie. We’ve got Mum and Dad over for a couple of weeks and have enjoyed a chilled out day of Christmas brekkie, Christmas lunch and backyard cricket. lots of love from the Starks.
Merry Christmas too from the Lowe family. We received your lovely card – so thank you! We just got back from the Tintin film – which we can highly recommend for adventurers such as yourselves! Please say hi to the Bolgers, and we wish you a happy last few weeks holiday and see you in 2012. xx
