Christmas at McFarmer's Backpackers, Portobello, Otago Peninsula. Nga mihi nui to the Campbell whanau for sharing their home with us.
Traditions: I plead and whine until Dad takes me tree picking; I hunt out cookie cutters and make a mess in Mum's kitchen; we stay up late and discuss the odds of a sunny Christmas day; we cook enough food for the province. We laugh. A lot.
This is my favourite time of the year.
