This Week.....

.... we have enjoyed an early family Christmas celebration...

All very busy opening presents.
.... we have celebrated Eden's fifth birthday...

Please forgive me for the paper plates and cups - at least we could compost them afterwards!
Birthday Girl.
Enjoying the very talented face painting by a clever kindy mum.

.... we have done some Christmas crafting, by ourselves and with some local friends...





The spice angels we made with our friends.
Christmas cards the kids made with their Grandma.
.... we have coped with the current heatwave by going swimming and relaxing...



.... we have had Grandma over for a stay...


.... we have enjoyed cricket and homemade beer...


Even Brannen has taken his place on the couch to watch the 'kiyet' (cricket)
.... we have done some Christmas cooking...

Gingerbread Christmas tree decorations.
.... we have made some Christmas gifts...

Lined tote bags for the girls to carry their swimming gear to swimming lessons.
My first attempt at a reversible tote with box corners - happy!
 ....receiving my university results. One distinction, and two high distinctions. I am very happy with that. I am changing my course slightly for 2014 onwards, to a double major in Sustainable Development and Community Development. I am slowly hatching ideas and plans for my future 'career' (or not) direction and am very excited about what the next few years may bring.

.... the lead up to Christmas is so exciting! What have you and yours been up to?

  1. We've got the heatwave to come - warm today, hot tomorrow and scorching on Thursday but tomorrow we are off to the beach for Allegra's birthday (was on 11th Dec). The crafting has been going well with hanging candle holders from upcycled baby food jars (given to me by a friend) and upcycled plastic container turtles to be made this afternoon, a tray we redecorated, placemats to be decorated and varnished and terracotta pot bells that just need their hangers and the bit that makes them ring (dongers?) inside them. It's been fun. :)
