Christmas Day Recap!

Happy New Year! It’s New Years eve and I can hardly believe it… This year has just flown past, and to tell you the truth, I could not be HAPPIER about it!!! I hope the next two years pass as quickly.

Anyway, here’s some photos from Christmas Day. I’d type out a whole blog about it but that’ll take ages lol, and I’m feeling lazy.

It started in Hamilton at Dad’s house. All of us got up early to go open presents, Daniel had TONS of gifts including a PSP, which is something he’s been wishing for for ages now, and here’s a pic of him in the middle of his victory dance when he opened it hahaha.

This is so cute 🙂

After that, we all piled into the car to travel up to Auckland to meet up with more family.

It took us TWO AND A HALF HOURS to get there, instead of the usual 1 and a half hours because traffic was so bad!!

Aside from that, it was a beautiful day and I enjoyed taking photos of scenery and such.

One we got there, we greeted everybody, then headed into the family room to open more presents.

After presents, it was FOOD TIME! 😀

And time to take photos of Aunty Debbie’s glass of bubbles 🙂

Here’s a photo of us all at lunch.

After lunch, there was pudding, tea, chocolate and swimming 🙂

Then it was time for the compulsory walk along the beach, where we stopped to take family photos:

The scenery was great and so it gave me the perfect opportunity to test my camera out as best I could.

I was in photography HEAVEN!

We had some good fun on the beach, it was so packed! Like an Australian beach! haha. We took some more good family photos and Dad and I barely put our cameras down the whole time.

On the way back we took some more family shots.

I love these three photos that I took of Lee, Daniel and Holly. The lighting is so so good and I think these three shots are my three favorites of the entire day.

Once we got home, Lee, Holly and I grabbed a chilled lemon lime and bitters and chillaxed on the trampoline. There was lots of lazing around and enjoying the tremendous sun and heat.

The rest of the evening was really low-key. We had small dinners coz we were all still stuffed from lunch.

The evening basically consisted of television, ice cream, chocolate and playing with new presents 🙂

Perfect way to end an evening.

I passed out as soon as my head hit the pillow because I was so tired from such a busy day.

I hope you enjoyed this post! It took me all day to write it up and all week to gain the motivation to do it lol.

Next post will be 2010 resolutions 🙂 Have a very very Happy New Year everybody!

A very merry christmas from my family to yours :)

I hope you all had a magical christmas, filled with love, family, friends, presents, great food and fun 🙂

due to restricted access to a computer, and needing to sort through hundreds of photos first, I won’t have a proper recount of my beautiful Christmas for a couple more days. Until then, I leave you with this, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you from my lovely Whanau 🙂

(that’s me and dad)

Have a fabulous day!

I could be a food photographer!

MAN I had some good breakfast eats yesterday 😀

It was Berry and Hazelnut Granola with Greek Yoghurt. Nom nom nom!! Frequent readers will know that I LOVE Granola, and I haven’t actually had any in a couple of months now.

I was going to do a post blogging all my eats for the day, but by snack time I’d forgotten to take pictures lol.

I did get some funky shots of my brothers hot chocolate:

As the title states: I could be a food photographer! haha. I love photographing food, honestly. I don’t know why and what it is about it but of all things, food is my favourite to take pictures of.

I had my second physio appointment yesterday.

It went well. I got a sweet massage on my sore hip and he gave me a few extra stretch moves and strength exercises for me to do. I’ll be going back next week for another appointment to loosen up my quad muscles.

I may have to take up to 4 weeks off running 😦 I’m sad about it, but I don’t mind because if I ran now I’d just worsen my injury and prolong recovery. After those 4 weeks, the hip will be better and will never bother me again and my knees should be better as well.

Until then, I must stick to strength exercises, swimming and stretching. Nothing else.

I hate swimming, but for the good of my health (literally) I’m going to stick it out. I’m going for another swim today just because I’ve only spent 3 days exercising out of the 8 that I’ve been here.

It’s more conveniant now too coz I can ride dad’s scooter there and back (and pray to sweet jesus that I don’t die at the big intersections :S)

Anyway, that’s that.

OH! I have a new tumblr account. Check it out here.

It’s strictly for my photography and to be honest, probably not a lot more than you see here, but it just looks a little fancier 🙂

I’ll be back later on with a 2010 Resolutions post so stay tuned for that!

Have a great Christmas Eve 🙂

Hey there, my name's Jenny. I have a huge passion for cooking/baking, writing, yoga and photography. I love nature and my favourite thing to do is spend an entire day outside, breathing in crisp, fresh air. Even better if I have a pen and paper with me. I started out running in March 2009 but sustained an injury in October 2009 which has unfortunately prevented me from running. I've been experimenting with other kinds of exercise to find another one that clicks. Follow me on my journey to maintaining good health + surviving high school and pursuing a career in Journalism. I Hope you enjoy reading my blog!
