Chrissie, Oz-style

While it was pretty strange and surprisingly emotional to have my first Christmas without mom, dad, and Maxie, in the end it was a lovely holiday. D's family was very generous in making me feel included in their traditions, and also in making room for some of mine! D especially was amazing (as usual), going above and beyond to make me smile.

Swimming at the beach in December! :D
Roasting pumpkin for pies!
Hand-mixing the pumpkin filling, old school.


Most of the family on Christmas Day.

D and his brother M made me a FREAKING BILBY PINATA. Have I mentioned how much I like D?
Whacking the pinata with a cricket bat!
Best of all, we made luminarias!!

Merry Christmas and happy new year from Oz. <3
