Best way to Spend Boxing Day!!

Christmas lunch was 10 minutes from home, at our daughter in laws mum's home - seafood lunch - so light and easy! Christmas dinner on the other hand was 3.5 hrs away - at my son's between Pretty Pine and Moulemain - hot drive for Christmas afternoon. Bbq dinner (fish, steak and snags), light salads and drinks. 
BUT........ Boxing Day lunch beats Christmas day by far this year!!
Fresh caught yabbies, cooked and eaten with salt and homemade seafood sauce as an accompaniment!! YUMMO!!!

Our son, Adam is an assistant manager on a station between Moulimein and Pretty Pine where there are some good damns. Our grandson Lachie put the yabby nets in one damn last night and collected this little haul this morning - well this is what remains after 6 of us had been eating for a while!!

Claws of the medium size ones. Big and old yabbies - haven't seen them like this since I was a child visiting my uncles farm at Tullamore. That first bite brought back a lot of childhood memories!!

It is serious business getting to the meat!! A great lunch to finish our visit.

One family member is so organised - that didn't last long when others helped themselves!!!

Cousins together for the first time - Abbey and William.

Ollie does love the blonde girls!!  Adam has been putting his hat on Ollie every time he sees him for months - this time he accepted it - 'Yeehaa' was what he said.

Lachie and Ollie having some fun together.

He did enjoy wearing that hat for a while.

Two cheeky cousins - William was a bit dubious about that camera Ma-ma had in front of her face!

This one is an observer and thinker.

Homemade gingerbread men - my favourite Christmas present!!
We had a simple but enjoyable and relaxed Christmas this year.
Now to spend some time at home and get into some gardening each morning, take more photos for more posts (the only goal I have set myself for the next 12 months is to get back into my blogging - have somissed reading what everyone is up to!!)

Merry Christmas everyone!!
