As hard as this month is I still look forward to spending time with family and friends, even when it's to do with Christmas. Weekends are particularly hard when we are out of our routine and trying to fill in the days without Aaron and Noah, so on Saturday we decided to gate crash the Deloraine ward's church Christmas party since it's my Mum and Dad's ward and we have lots of friends there.
It was a beautiful, hot sunny day and it was lovely to sit under the shade of the Porter's trees, eating and chatting.
Well some of the kids played the games. Harri decided it was more fun playing with all the bigger boys. He's so used to hanging out with Jay all the time, that he'd prefer to hang out with the bigger kids.
The boys still remember the last time we spent time there and Gus showed us how Rusty likes to eat his apples. There were a few brave people who fed Rusty some apples by putting it in their mouth. I felt like I was going to vomit when I saw all the cow slobber all over their face!
Kobe was so excited about the visit from Santa.
