me to you…

On the 4th day of Advent, Sydney gave to me…Christmas in Summer

Posted on December 5, 2008 in the Uncategorized category

I love Summer and I love my birthday and I love Christmas – but they haven’t ever coincided with each other…until now!

Because of the different seasons in Oz, my birthday and Christmas are in Summer – how cool is that? I love that Santa is wears swim trunks and palm trees are decorated with lights…

I could not fit in any better these days. I love wearing bathing suits, sundresses and shorts – and that is everyone’s Christmas best.

Here is what the kids are wearing for Christmas…

Everyone barbeques for Christmas and everyone is on Summer break. We hit the jackpot here – and I am excited to go to the beach (just like I do in Redondo) at Christmas and frolic in the water – which is totally warm, by the way.

I always hated how I had to bundle up for my birthday – cover my party dress and wear covered shoes – now I can look fabulous and not have to worry about freezing and looking frumpy for the most exciting day of the year.

Here is one more beautiful thing about Spring/Summer in Sydney – the jacaranda trees are in bloom….

Happy Summer Christmas and Birthday to Kristin – it’s the best pressie I could have received.

    Glad you are loving your summer birthday month. Sounds like you two are living it up down under.

    We enjoy reading about all the places you have seen, especially the church, and hope we can see them next year when we visit.

    Love you and miss you but glad you are so happy!
