HO, HO, HO

Ever wondered what Santa gets up to on Boxing day? This apparently! This Santa is a pretty cool one! This is pretty much what our Christmas is like here in Australia... you wake up, put on the air con to cool the place down and then you try not to go outside to much in the heat of the day! Well thats our Christmas anyway, some people are more keen than us and go to the beach and stuff... meh... it's to hot there!

Well, its getting closer to Christmas.... YAY! I have been so excited for days. This is the very first Christmas or birthday EVER where Matt and I have not chosen out own presents... he keeps teasing me and saying that I will love it and I will never guess it. The pressie is in medium sized box... there is a big bit that slides from side to side and a small bit that rolls.... YEP... I have spent some time under our stick tree shaking it! As for the stick tree bit, we were going to get a real tree this year but didn't get around to it so we ended up getting a dead stick from the park out the back and hanging decorations on that. It's very 'Aussie'. Next year... I'M GETTIN' ME A REAL ONE! It's rather exciting... I've never, ever had a real tree in my entire life... just plastic ones.
