26 December 2014

Christmas this year consisted of family, food, giving, Lobethal Lights, backyard cricket, backyard basketball and an afternoon on the porch. All of which was done to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Thank you to everyone for sharing the love, especially during this time of year. Happy Christmas!
