Arrived in Poughkeepsie on christmas eve at Ale and Linda's beautiful home. Made to feel so welcome. Trish, Don and their 3 children arrived back from shopping, was so good to see their familar faces. We all headed over to Linda's sisters house Cabrita and Bob and had the most wonderful meal. Very Italian with all the pasta, seafood, home made desserts, wine and lots of talking and laughter. After dinner we opened presents and then right on cue it started to snow. All the locals stayed warm inside while all us Aussies were out in it chucking snow balls.
We are staying at Jason's flat which is so comfortable. We have the georogus Ashleigh staying here with us. Christmas Day lunch the Marks and the Walkers ended up at International House of Pancakes, not typical of your traditional christmas lunch but just as much fun. Then we all went back to Linda and Ale's for dinner, again with all their relatives and once again, amazing food, lots of alcohol and laughter. Gary and Nikk kept the party going with their antics, I dont know who is worse, one feeding off the other. Jason took us on a sightseeing tour today, a very pretty town. It has started to snow again, this time a substantial dump, so everything covered. We are tucked up, warm and cosy in the flat watching movies, very content. Poor Ash is in bed with a cold.
Tomorrow we are all going to the factory outlets. Pitty we have limited room, may have to chuck some stuff.
Hoping to be in Miami for new year.
