I've just spent a great couple of days on the NSW North Coast with my brother and his two boys.
For many families, especially those with adult children, Christmas is the only time of year when the whole family gets together. And even then, it does't happen every year - it's been several years since my family was all together.
For the Golds - Mum & Dad in Brisbane, Mindy in Sydney, and others elsewhere - this was the last Christmas for a while that they'll be together. So, Mindy's Christmas present for her family was a surprise photo shoot at her parents' home.
