My family and I celebrated our Christmas early this year, like every other year (>.<), but this time we celebrated it at Jenny and Benny's new house in Ringwood! :D And I must say, it's a beautiful and cute little house, perfect for two people (^___^) I loved how they furnished everything, classy! They're lucky too that it's a brand new house that they bought off the market :) everything's so new!! I made a big deal at of how pretty and clean the light switches were LOL, everyone just kind of shook their heads...
Moving along haha! Dinner was so yummy! Roast chicken, pork belly, fried rice and duck/jellyfish salad, an Asian Christmas dinner and I was so satisfied after finishing a big plate of everything (^__^) after cleaning up, it was PRESENT TIME!! I can't believe how many presents there were under the tree this year, everyone in the family really went all out, even with the wrapping! LOL Seemed like we were all trying to top everyone else with our beautiful wrapping skills :P Ben was the Santa this year, and he definitely fit the part, and he made it more Aussie by holding a beer stubby in the other hand while handing out gifts! LOL XD *shakes head*
All in all, it was such a nice relaxing night after such a hectic week and day!! Every year I'm always thinking the same, at how time is flying by so fast, and how quickly everyone is growing up and getting on with their adult lives. Two of my sisters have moved out now, and I'll be graduating next year *fingers crossed*, and my little brother is not so little anymore (@___@) far out!
I really do love my family <3 We've had rough patches here and there during this year, but it was obvious that everyone made a great effort this year for Christmas, and it was just wonderful to have everyone having such a fun night giving out presents and enjoying each other's company <3
It's Christmas Eve tonight, so I sure do hope everyone'll make it home in time to spend a wonderful night with their family or friends :) I'll be spending it with family watching Kung Fu Panda, and eating chocolate ice-cream with lychee! (^__^) <3
* Merry Christmas Everyone *
Let your loved ones know you love them tonight :)
Love, from Julie xox
