Gareth led worship 8 times over the Christmas weekend, so it was great to collapse at the Cockrams for a fabulous Christmas day. Steve & I had a VERY quick dip in the pool - it was freezing. Helen & Gareth stayed in the hot tub! (Steve you owe me $25!)

They did, however, love playing in the corn. Bit bizarre, kind of like very large pieces of sand. But they loved it!
Her party was in our back yard with 25 kids, plus their parents (thank goodness). We once again introduced our American friends to the delights of 'pass the parcel'. Here are some of them on the bouncy castle...
And of course no south western party is complete without a pinata. Sugar!
Toby had an... explosion whilst eating cottage pie. A nasty combination; the only solution was to de-robe him right there and bathe him in the kitchen sink. Helen & Steve Cockram's girls, Izzy and Meggy, were there and everyone found it very funny indeed - even Toby.
Josh and Toby were the tiredest of all:
Daisy and Lucy LOVED the hotel we stayed in.
Some other friends, Frog and Amy, were visiting Phoenix from London for a conference, and again we only got to see them for a short time, but it was lovely to catch up with them. They have 2 year old twins, Zac and JJ, who were gorgeous. JJ loves his food...
Zac also had quite a feast!

On Friday we had an unexpected visitor, a Javelina. I was too scared to take a photo when it was in our front yard but when it ran off I took this rather terible photo to prove it!
This is a classic Toby face when we are feeding him...
