I am dreaming of a white christmas

Kierans Mum comes from Ireland (Her mother and father migrated their family to Australia on a boat when they were young) so Kieran has many Cousins that live in this Emerald Isle. We had gone down to see them once, though this time we were going for christmas.

We woke up christmas morning and jumped in the car, drove 3 hours, Listened to "I am dreaming of a white Christmas" by Neil Diamond, and hit the snow, it was the first time I have seen this much snow, and we were pretty excited to get out and play in it

We got to Abbeyfeale and had roast dinner as soon as we walked in the door. Roast AND mashed potato (only in Ireland), home made stuffing, ham, turkey, Christmas cake, homemade custard, cream, trifle.....These Irish folk really know how to put on a feast.

Kieran had made home made Baileys, a bottle of that was consumed and then we went to bed around 1 in the morning.

Next day we hopped up and thought we would let our artistic sides show, so we created this.

We took a trip down to Castle Island the next night, and then went to visit Kierans Nans Sister, Aunty Nora, who lived up the hill.

She has a lovely little white cottage, and is an absolute Laugh. After that, we jumped in the car and drove back to Dublin. Christmas was over, but it was one of the best we have had.
