Happy 81st Dad/Poppa/Roy
An early Christmas gingerbread birthday cake
Already in his Jammies ready to fly home the next day
Farewell to Jacob Lyle and Jasper Lyle
Waving farewell to the plane
and then the weather turns and the hot fog rolls in.

The Christmas Pageant on Norfolk Island where the main street is closed for the nights festivities.
It was great to have my own family plus my parents heading out to join in.
My mum and dad enjoying the sunset from the main street
A beautiful full moon silhouetted by magestic Norfolk Island pines
A Santa bubbacino at the Olive café to finish off the night

After being so dry for so long, any rain is a welcome gift.
Although we are all grateful for the wet stuff that is finally falling out of the sky, it has come at the expense of our annual Christmas street pageant which has now been postponed.
The downpour happened after lunch between 2pm and 5:30pm, but was dry the actual hours the pageant would have been on, still a decision had to be made for all the outdoor food vendors setting up their outdoor cafe's and stalls etc.
I spent this morning taking some photos of beautiful baby girls during a photography shoot at Kingston, then joined my family for a lovely lunch at Governor's lodge restaurant.
This afternoon to appease the kids from missing out on seeing Santa on the firetrucks, we took the kites down to Emily bay to see if we could fly them.
But the fun was in our constant attempts to keep the kites in flight.

And decorate a Christmas tree that we got at a garage sale but was molting too much for inside, so we popped it on the roadside and dressed it up with decorations and solar lights for all to enjoy.
