Merry Christmas!

While hiking the Heaphy Track with James, the girls wrote a New Zealand version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”!

Here it is, and much love to all our wonderful family and friends. We miss you all and send wishes that you’ve had a beautiful, peace-filled Christmas and a joyful new year to come.

“Twelve Days of Christmas, New Zealand Edition”

lyrics composed by Evelyn and Charlotte

On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:

twelve waddling weka

eleven flowing rivers

ten tweeting tui

nine glowworm caves

eight mountain lupine

seven silver ferns

six rata trees

five paua shells

four frisky kea

three pretty lakes

two purple shrubs,

and a kiwi under pear trees.
