Hi Every one Well I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day with Family and friends And continue to do so over the holiday season. Well I had a wonderful time with family and friends.Mine started Chistmas Eve I went around to my Son in laws Brett And Daughter Donna's home For dinner, when it got dark Brett took the family To see the Xmas lights sorry folk I left my Camera back at the house , then was Back home to watch Carols by Candlelight on Television broadcast live from Melbourne, then was off to bed for a few hrs sleep, before being woken by the Grandchildren as Santa had been and left plenty of presents under the tree, A lovely day was had by all, Thank you Brett and Donna for a lovely day. Tomorrow the 26th I have my Son Gary and his family, My DaughterJoanne and her Family plus my Dear friends Ron and Irene from Melbourne are comming to stay a few weeks, by New Years eve I think ill have 18 extra in the house So I might not get a chance to blog or visit everyone, But will get around to you all as soon as possible. Iwill take plenty of photo's and show as soon as i can. Jen

A very happy and prosperous New Year to all.

Hi Jeanette,
That lobster would cost $70 a kilo here - was it any cheaper up your way? YUM!!! Seems like you had a wonderful Christmas Day. Best wishes for the New Year - maybe we can meet up somewhere!

Hello dear Jen:-)

I've been so slow at getting around to visiting everyone lately but hopefully once the holidays are over with, things can get back to normal! I so enjoyed looking at your pictures...now that's what I call a lobster! WOW!

New Year is a time for celebration of love, of life, of friendship. It's the time to thank God for wonderful friends, and to bring to their lives as much magic as they bring to ours...so here's celebrating our friendship and praying that its magic continues forever. Happy New Year to you and yours dear Jen! xoxo

I have to agree with all the other comments... that is one BIG lobster. I would hate to think what it would cost here in the states. Sounds like your holidays were filled with many good memories. Have a Happy New Year.

That is one bloody enormous lobsta!
You have a beautiful big house... hang on is it your house? O no it is not; it is Brett and Donna's. Are Brett and Donna multimillionaires? No; I bet: they are just Australian. Houses are so tiny over here! And overpriced! Glad you had a lovely Xmas... have a brilliant 2008!!
