Here are images from our Christmas in New Zealand. Instead of the snow we were used to in the Pacific Northwest of the US, we now had sunshine and sprouting plants. Though we hit up Santa in October before travelling back to NZ, we embraced the modest decor and Father Christmas of the Pacific Rim. We learned the beauty & benefit of using recycled scarves as gorgeous wrapping paper. We had pavlova with fresh strawberries. Mom did last minute shopping, the children wrote letters to Santa and the entire family did heaps of baking. Our family prayed for peace and welcomed Thorin to the manger scene to visit the Baby Jesus.
It was a beautiful holiday in our home and we hope it was the same in yours.
Now onto the New Year!
