Merry Christmas!

This is Christmas at the Robinsons:

In the pool. Caleb just learned to swim.


Self portrait, just to prove I really was there.

Our stockings this year were really hosery (and yes, Santa brings toothpaste) - our stuff still hasn't arrived (it's two months late) - which also means that I had to bake my pies in a casserole dish and its lid. Yes, that is pumpkin pie. I bought a japanese pumpkin and steamed and mashed it. It tasted great, but too much work. I'm not really a fan of pumpkin pie anyway. I just wanted it because I couldn't have it.

Ginger bread houses.

We had dinner and played games with friends, then climbed around on Mount Coot tha.

Merry Christmas!

I cannot believe how big your kids are! Emily is just beautiful! Hope you're enjoying Australia. I'm a little jealous of your warm weather because I hate the cold. Hope your belongings arrive soon. Happy holidays!
