A Summertime Christmas
Last weekend, in the middle of a heatwave, we put up our Christmas Tree.
It was 38oC that day.
And our air conditioning was broken.
The pool was not fit to swim in either.
Needless to say we were hot.
Hence the nearly naked photos of Charlie.
Listening to Christmas songs such as "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" while putting up the tree in the heat, was the ultimate irony.
Why, hello there Santa, so nice of you to drop by.
Charlie was eager to get started with the decorating.
Surveying the tree.....
For some reason Charlie insisted in putting the decorations as far into the tree as he could reach.
It obviously makes sense in his mind to do so.
The finishing touch.... affixing the star atop the tree.... with a little help from Kaiden.
And the finished product...
It's definitely starting to feel like Christmas around here.
I can tell by that little bead of sweat, slowly trickling down my back.
