And another Christmas!!! We will all get fat this year! :)

We all got together around at Mum and Willie's for yet another Xmas.  Jo and her partner came and brought Ella.  Lilli was wrapped to see Ella and they had little Christmas presents for each other.  So cute.

The girls.

Our 3 generations...

& 4 from the Warren / Wimmer side.  Uri, Oma, Mummy, & Lilli

Mummy, Ella and Lilli

Lilli showing Daddy how to put on a DVD.

Not sure if this is before or after food.

The girls, so cute together. 

Everybody out at the tramp - Lilli's Xmas present.

Another great day.  Hope the time doesn't go too fast!  I wish that Doris, Al and Elfriede could stay permanently!  :)

Oma, Opa & Uri Arrived From Germany

Sooo exciting to have Max's Mum, Dad and Nana here! 

Here's Lilli on Oma and Opa's bed making herself at home.

First photo together!  I told Doris that she didn't have to worry whether Lilli would remember their special bond!  :)

Mum & Willie came around and we had another Xmas.

Me in the kitchen.

Good times.

All in all, a great first day.  We are so happy to have them here.

Christmas 2010, Waihi Beach

Well Christmas was lovely this year at the beach.  We all had a great time and went on a few expeditions then we had to head back to Auckland to pick up Max's Mum, Dad and Nana!!!  Very exciting.

Oh it's so annoying when the photos go the wrong way like this.

Here's Lilli opening her presents...

Here she is in her beautiful dress - it was given to her when she was only about 6 weeks old by Aunty Annie who just couldn't resist it!  Hahaha.

Reading one of her new books with Briny (Brian).

Using her new coin purse.

New things to say today were:

You right Neeha (horse)?
You right moo?
You right Nana Dot?

Reading the paper with Darryl on Boxing Day morning before we headed back to Waiuku.

Catching up to Xmas 2010! Getting there slowly!

Hmmm, this is not what I wanted the bed end to be used for!  :)

Lilli thinks it's just another play area. 
 Taking a drink out of Mummy's collectors pewter All Blacks cup.

No, there is no alcohol in there!!

In her gorgeous little outfit.  Cripes looks so grown up in this!?!

Serious stuff on the tv.

Yep, very serious.

Playing on Sam's playstation drum set.

Can you believe she fell asleep on the floor whilst watching Uncle Toot lying on the couch across the room?!  I can't get her to sleep in her bed but he can lie on the couch and talk to her and she just drops off on the floor.  Maybe I should ask him to start putting her to bed for me.  ;)

Hmm, yep even Dad can get her to sleep!  The next night we went down to Dad and Trish's for dinner and Dad took a tired Lilli off me so that I could finish my dinner.  When they didn't come back for ages Trish and I decided to go see what had happened to them and this is what we found!  Hahaha.

A couple of Lilli's paintings that she's done at playcentre.

Afternoon tea time.

Watering the garden for Mummy.

Getting ready to go down to Waihi Beach on Xmas eve.

We all headed off down the road to see some Xmas lights.

Not sure who's actually driving here!  haha.

And here we are...

Lilli and Nana were having a great time on the scooter!

Can't believe I nearly forgot to mention that Lilli is slowly weaning herself off the boob!!  She has asked for it once on the 20th and 21st December and twice on the 22nd!  How great is that?!  It means that I have been able to have a glass of wine or 2!  :)

I gave her a quick drink on Christmas Eve because she seemed really unsettled and we were away from home but really I think it was probably not the best idea I've ever had.  We will go back to distracting her instead.
