christmas cake, pudding and tinsel:
Wow all over red rover for another year..

  • Well Alex had his alarm set for 5am and he camped in the lounge room, so as not to miss out on any excitement.

  • I was awake a 5.23 am, out of bed and into the lounge.

  • Alex was awake and ready to get things rolling.

  • I always have a coffee and christmas cake for breakfast whilst the unwrapping happens.

  • Alex ran upstairs to get Mike, Steph and Nik awake.

  • Then all of them traipsed into Jacks room where nanny was awake and getting out of bed.

  • But Jack was sound asleep.

  • A tickle and a kiss, still nothing.

  • Alex was not going to be put off, loud talking to Jack and move him around.

  • Jack woke up smiling. Why is everyone in my room?

  • Everyone piles into their spots in the lounge with Craig as the present giver. He says he hates christmas but he loves being the center of attention, the santa, the giver of gifts.

  • An hour or so later and its total choas in the room. Piles of paper and ribbon.

  • Where is Jack, hopefully not lost under all the paper.

  • Perhaps he is playing with his ride on shrek car, or his large dump truck or his blocks or any number of toys santa left.

  • But no we hear a gigle and a rustle of paper and in the kitchen on the floor is a happy little boy playing games. With an empty box and some cellophane..

  • Hmm would have saved santa a heap of money if he had put emptyboxes and paper on his christmas list.

  • Well lunch was prawn cocktails, ham, turkey, roast pork and all the trimmings.

  • with pudding, custard and trifle for dessert.

  • Craig curled up on the bed asleep with his chopper book in hand.

  • Alex upstairs playing his electric guitar.

  • Steph at boyfriends.

  • Mike asleep on the lounge with a silly cracker hat atop his head.

  • Nanny having a nap in with Jack asleep in his bed.

  • And me, well some little elf has to clean the dishes and put away the food. pack the crockery sweep the floor and find a place for all the paper.

  • and as i sit quietly smelling gorgeous from my new purfume, wearing a new shirt and slippers, i gaze at my hand and smile as i remeber this morning as my darling partner of many years proposed to me. In the quiet between the waking and the kids coming down, on bended knee he asked me to marry him.

  • i said yes.

  • so i sat back and pondered the makings of a wedding in the new year,

  • happy new year everyone..

Hi all!!!
Its beginning to feel a lot like christmas...
Well havnt i been the worse blogger out!
Ive been working full time and just have had no energy or creativity in me..
And with christmas fast approaching i cant believe how fast this year has gone.

We did do our yearly secret santa..well its not so secret at our this year my eldest son , who got his nanny to give a gift to, puts a bit more thought into his present than last year.. Last year he had Jack, who was all of 18 months old.. He bought him a Micheal Jackson CD. Ok he did this because he is Michael and Jack is jackson. Yes it took thought but Jack wont be using this CD for many years yet..Karma though has come round and Jack has Michael as his gift receiver this year. He got Michael a CD this year but more of Mikes music.

This years gift list goes like this
Craig(daddy) - chopper books to read,
Me - perfume
Mike - pool cue
Steph - camera
Nik - watch
Alex - electric guitar
Jack - anything that is loud and
so we will see just who has been naughty and who has been nice.....

Ive also taken some pre xmas shots which I will share..

These two layouts were done fro EMM as the guest designer..What a wonderful pack of goodies i got from Rondell..

These next layouts have been done for different CCs..and online comps

Not sure if ive shared these out of Stephs album. But here they are anyways...

Oh i love christmas.
