Christmas Eve is always a fun day when there are little kids involved. The boys were very excited there is now only ONE more sleep until Santa comes.

We had breakfast and were just tidying up the room before going to the kids for our Christmas lunch, when we got a message from M saying they were going to a local skate oark to burn off some energy. A very short while later, it started raining 😒🙁 so that stopped that plan.

Arriving for lunch, I helped with the final preparations and we sat down to a lovely lunch of ham, roast lamb and veges followed by pavlova.

We had a lovely day playing with the kids, they were excited because at 4:30-ish, Santa was planned to be coming up the street down the hill in a firetruck!

Sure enough around that time we could hear the sirens and we all walked down the road to see not one but two firetrucks coming. Santa was in the second truck The firemen and Santa waved and threw lollies to the kids. Of course there was mad scramble to collect as many as possible 😀

We made our way back to the motel and we will have a quiet night ready for the full on excitement of Christmas morning tomorrow.
