The Cullens have survived their 2nd Chrissie Downunda. It started off with the most amazing Christmas Eve service at NCC and followed by 'Supper' (Cakes and coffee for non Aussies) at our friends Graham and Penny , but in true Penny Robinson style, She put on an amazing spread! Devilled eggs topped with shrimp, Peking Duck served in a mini pastry case, smoked salmon and capers on bruchetta as starters. Then we were surprised with marinaded chicken kebabs and prawn kebabs. After all that we were then expected to help finish the mountain of cakes and sweet things too!
On Christmas Day, we were invited to join Mauro and Laurissa for a late afternoon lunch - more food!!!! Boxing Day had us back at Graham and Penny's to help finish off more leftovers.
All in all, the 'silly season' has been very kind to us, bringing friend closer to make up for far away family. To all that were not able to share this time with us, we wish you a blessed 2009!
