Book Depository

I was searching for 2012's diary when this captured my attention - the Book Depository's books of the year in colour.
So pretty. And if I had the patience, so interesting.

I ended up choosing this diary. I used a "posh planner" this year and it was a great diary. I liked the look of this one as it includes two years (and has a bird on the cover).

Backyard cricket

...until it gets too dark to see.

Nerf Gun

Oliver used his pocket money in the post Christmas sales to buy himself another Nerf gun.
After some searching in crowded department stores, the VULCAN was located, and at a good price.

Over the past 2 day everything and everyone has been shot - especially his sisters.

Oliver shoots his nerf gun

When I began to have babies I idealistically thought that we would have no guns in the house... oh well.

What is it Wednesday?

Answer tomorrow.

Rocket's Christmas

Rocket was excited to find that Santa had brought him a pig's ear (eeeewwww!) for Christmas.
He did need some help to get it out of his stocking.

Boxing Day

Andrew's side of the family came to us last night for Christmas celebrations.
More festivities, food and gifts.
I love Christmas!

Thanks for making all the wonderful table decorations Bronwynne, and all the prawns (I had leftovers tonight - yum). Thanks for sharing your gingerbread house Sophie, and for the delicious pudding Sylvia - Christmas just would not be the same without it.

It was sad to not have Aunty Margaret with us. She recently passed away, but we know she is now safe with Jesus.

I am so fortunate to have such wonderful families to celebrate with.

Christmas Day

We spent Christmas Day this year at my sister Philly's house.
The day was marked by:
* lots of eating - coconut prawns, calamari, roast beef, turkey, salads, and mum's yummy desserts,(Thanks Philly for all the cooking you did. It was delicious.)
* opening gifts,
* backyard cricket, and
* snoozing on the couch.

We missed Dad however - he is recovering from a stroke in hospital. We visited him on Christmas Eve, and Philly & her family are visiting him today (Boxing Day).
