christmas day

359360/366

Christmas day. Of all the pictures I could choose, this is probably not your quintessential Christmas day picture, but it is the one that I think summarizes the day perfectly. A hot, hot day filled up with family lunch followed by family dinner with cousins, aunties, and uncles, complete with swimming pool and simple, summer food, rounded off with a warm bath in the tub with cousins. It’s what our Christmases have always been about – spending time with each other, basking in the company of loved ones. When the presents have been unwrapped and the food been scoffed down, it’s the memory of these moments that lingers still and long in my mind. It’s the love that remains.

    Sorry, allow me a moment or two to get lost in your blog while I should be doing work.
    Also, a propos of nothing really, except I guess the subject matter of this image, my favourite memory of my girl’s first christmas also involved bath time. She was so over stimulated, and so over tired that she kind of lost it during her bath, and had the most endearing attack of the giggles I’ve ever witnessed in a small baby. It went on for a good 15 minutes. So, united in bathtime christmas-ness, or something.
