Xmas at the White's House

Xmas 2010 for us was a very wet one, but exciting all the same.  Here are some images of our day and Boxing day too.
Chris came home early, to beat the rains, so Xmas eve night, Chris and I made port balls, we didn't have any rum..... Chris drank his beer, and licked the bowl, whilst Michael was cooking dinner for us. We then watched movies until late, it was a wonderful night, just the three of us, one I will treasure for a long time.

Our Xmas tree, Xmas morning, before the pressie's are opened.

A wonderful gift for Michael and I from Michael's brother and his family.

Not sure why it's on it's side, tried several times to re import it.
I try each year to make a Xmas decoration for Donna and Rachelle, so this year Donna got a 18" high tin Santa, and Rachelle got a beaded bauble. (forgot to photograph Santa, but here's the bauble).

After we'd eaten and said good bye to the family we did the usual, and walked the dogs, (we're dog sitting Echo, her family has gone to Melbourne for Xmas) and the rains came all day ..... the weir was flowing.....
Boxing day was worse, more rain than Xmas Day.
Even the little creeks were over full and flowing... We turned around and came onto the path further down towards the weir.

The dogs didn't mind, they got to swim on what is normally lovely grass. The rivers edge is about 20 feet away, so it was just nice, Rosey loved it anyway, she's in the middle there, bit hard to see as she's lying in the water, as she normally does.

Hope all had a safe Xmas, and had loads to eat and enjoy, we did.

Glad you had a good time. Rosie and Echo certainly look happy with all the water around. My daughter from Sydney and her family are here and enjoyed seeing the photos of the two dogs. Nice to see a photo of your son, too!

Merry Christmas Arlene!
We're certainly having a wet one, aren't we!? :-)
I'd love to catch up in Townsville next year - maybe when it's dry once more. LOL!
Email me with your details ok?
