Our Christmas

My place in time #74 - If I had a permanent marker, I would correct this sign
 
 
This time last week, about 8 o'clock in the morning, I was changing a sign in the main drag with a permanent marker.
 
It stayed there all week too, but yesterday, the day after Boxing Day, I noticed it was gone. Fair enough, I was surprised it stayed there that long! I hope it gave someone a smile at Christmas.
 
I'd wanted to do this for a couple of years and finally found the courage this year. I was trying to remain low key as I sticky taped my sign to the window, nervous but casual at the same time, considering it was directly opposite the cop shop.

 
 


It's always exciting for the kids when they first notice the street decos up at the start of December.

The girls and I, dropped into Carpenter Rocks, earlier in the week. Preparing the house for holiday renters. We have visitors from Melbs renting this week. January is pretty well fully booked.

We checked out the lights. There were two houses Summer flatly refused to get out at, well screamed at us, because there were dancing Santas out the front. She has decided that she will not change her mind about the matter next year either.













Entertainment at the Millicent Christmas Eve street party. Awesome.

Christmas Day. Family. Cousins. Too much food!

Boxing Day was slow, not for the kids. How. do. they. do. it?
