Boxing Day in Newcastle

I didn't know about Boxing Day until I was in Australia in 2004. After Christmas Day is Boxing Day. It is another day where families get together. Christmas Day and Boxing Day was all about food.. :)

We spent Boxing Day with my SIL's brother's family.
My SIL is a German lady.

It was a hot day and my SIL (my husband's sister) from Malaysia couldn't stand the heat. 
That's my BIL (my husband's brother)

The host (my SIL's brother), his daughter and
his daughter-in-law (Chinese lady)

Even the dog wanted to join in the fun. My girl simply loves dogs.
The little boy is the host's grandson.
