We'll Show You Fancy Snow Photo Ladies What Christmas Is Really Like!!


Right ladies (and gentlemen too) this is how we do Christmas Eve! We start with a very sunny day with sunflowers flowering in the garden...
Grab some magnificent blue sky with high temperatures, about 28 Degrees to be precise...

Catch a glimpse of red Christmas Pohutukawa's flowering on the trees over the fence...

Add a little bit of the tropics with orange Canna Lillies...

A pair of shorts and t-shirt (not my legs I'm afraid, these fabulous pins belong to No.1) and nothing on ones feet...

It's a time for cold creamy milkshakes...
And warm red stockings ready and waiting for Santa...

It's a time to shed one's cast for the summer and for unwrapping one's gifts in the morning...

And it's a time for Mother's to receive kind gifts from overseas as well. I'd like to thank Rebecca very much for thinking of me when she spotted these rolls of paper gingham ribbon. And look, another perfect tea towel for my kitchen.

Just look at this special knitted stocking that she crafted herself. What a lucky girl I am! Thank you ever so much Rebecca! It's hanging on our tree.

I also received a special card and ribbon from a kind commenter of mine, Priyanca. I forgot to take photos sorry but will sort this out at some stage!
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with your families. Our family sends you warm wishes for a happy day. Have a great time, enjoy the lovely food and drinks, be happy and remember, take loads of photos to share!
Happy Christmas one and all!!!
With Love, The Red Gingham Family xxxxxx

Oh my goodness! Thanks so much for sharing this warm and sunny scenario. We're cold and wet and icy here in the UK (Cornwall) and your post is a huge burst of summer! Have a fantastic Christmas!

I can't imagine Christmas in the sunshine - but one day I'd love to try it.

Have a lovely day in the sunshine. - I hope Santa remembers his bathers ;)

Merry Christmas to all the Red Gingham family.

Hah, you may have exotic flowers and sunshine and warmth, but we have SNOW!!! And its cold...... and wet........ and grey.... and actually the snow is all gone....... sigh

Tehehehe, had to remove the first post, because somehow I ended up writing complete gobbledegook. Haven't been on the booze yet, honestly.

Hope it's a good one for you and your family.
I think you've probably made a lot of bloggers jealous with your sunshine, I know I am ;)
