This year will be our first Christmas without any family around us! So we bought a really nice fiber optic tree and some decorations recently to brighten up our lounge, here are a few pictures of our tree and the presents that we already have under it...

Here is a shot of the tree taken at night so you can see the fibre optics! A bit blurred sorry as I didn't use the tripod.

On Christmas Eve Jason and I are heading to a workmates place for dinner with her family and on Christmas day we are heading off to a nice lunch at the Matilda Bay Restaurant: http://www.matbay.com.au/
