All of our Kris Kringle (Secret Santa) gifts were under the Christmas tree, begging to be opened. As you can see by the shapes, a lot of people got wine.
We have a lot of things to discuss when we finally meet up with my family, because Noosa (the place we're visiting after Melbourne) will be pouring down with rain the entire time that we'll be there. When I say "rain", I mean torrential rainfall and flooding. It's not looking very good. This is a freak year for Australia weather-wise (and other places). We'd love to change our plans around, but we're not going to get refunds for that part of the trip. We either have to brave the wet or spend quite a bit of money to have a sunny and dry holiday. That's something I'll update later.
See ya in Melbourne!
