Santa at MPA!

Jacob and Abi went to the children's Christmas party on base today. It was a lovely weather day so I walked across with them. They then played outside in a courtyard for most of the party. Lots of the adults were hung over from the Christmas do at the Mess. Allen went into work and to the gym so he missed it all. I enjoyed chatting and sitting in the sun. Santa arrived and gave out all the gifts. I've put in a photo of Jacob and Abi with Santa and then one of Jacob pulling a cracker - a great face on him! A busy week ahead leading up to Christmas Day when we're sharing dinner with 33 neighbours. Have a Merry time everyone,

What a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime trip! It is a strikingly beautiful vacation and sounds like a memorable one. We've packed some, but are taking a break for Christmas. My sister is coming up today. We actually move beginning next Tuesday. Not looking forward to that. Your blog/pics are wonderful. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. (I'm afraid my card will arrive late.)
