Christmas, New Years and all that...Part 1...

We had a great festive season!  Here's a brief overview:

It began with the annual Visser Christmas at the park.  Lots of relaxing, laughs and the kids having water fights and riding bikes. 

Michael with his brother Danny and cousin Mark.

Followed a week later by Christmas at my Aunties house.  Lots of great food and more water fights.  We had the car super festive until it rained!! 

My Aunty Nella is usually the first to encourage the kids to play and have fun...of course she found the largest water gun!

After we left we checked out some of the local Christmas lights.  There is a great place on Vista Dve in Chirnside Park that is worth a visit...

We then trekked up to my sisters house ready for a good nights sleep so we would have plenty of energy for our trip to Melbourne the next day. 

In the morning we were up bright and early with my niece Kelly and her boyfriend Brandon and headed to the train station.

We only just made it after I had to organise Myki cards for all of us and put money on them!  Finally we were on our way...

Flinders St Station...

We checked out the Lego Christmas tree at Federation Square...

and met up with my friend Bean and her girls ready for an adventure through the city.  We walked across the bridge and headed down Southbank...

and to Crown Casino to watch the Christmas show.

We then walked all the way to Bourke St to check out the Myer windows.  The line was so long that we decided to have a rest and something to eat before saying farewell to our friends and heading back to the train station. 

The kids were tired and a little mischievous on the train on the way home.  I think such a busy couple of days took it's toll on all of us.  It all worked out well in the end though because the boys were all asleep within 20 minutes and I was able to drive the hour and a half home in peace and quiet!

With all of that fun and excitement done with, it was time to get ready for the main event!
