OK, it's feeling a bit more like Christmas...


Man, it has been busy around my place this past week - with school finishing up, playgroup finishing up, the countdown to two-certain-girls 5th birthday, My Nanny being in hospital, Carols and doing two markets in two weeks I'm ready for a holiday.   So sorry if it seems like there's not a lot going on around here - it's just a bit crazy!

Here's some photos of the week!

Some of our lights-  hubby isn't finished and hasn't even put up our inflatables yet either!

You all know I love red right?

We hear people slam on the brakes and slow down to pass our house, it's cool!

This is the Bubblebubs/Cute Tooshies stall at Billycart Markets on Saturday - cute huh?

This is from Carols last night

Daddy and Olivia wore 'Bah-Humbug' hats which wasn't exactly festive and got a few looks, but we think they're fun!

Eloise coming on stage for her performance with her class 'the 12 Aussie days of Christmas'

Eloise insisted that I make her a red and green dress - because our red and green dress at home is mostly blue - and she seemed pretty insistent so I quickly made this one yesterday morning and I'm glad i did because all the class were outfitted head to toe in red and green!
Was feeling a little nostalgic at the end of the performance because this being Eloise's kindy class we've all been 'initiated' together and they're a tight little group - can't believe they've been in school a year already - they've grown up so much!   This performance they did without music or direction and it also showed how they worked as a team and had confidence to perform in front of hundreds of people - proud Mama!


This is the action to 'and a Kookaburra in a gum tree' (as opposed to a partridge in a pear tree) Got a lot of laughs!

And like every school concert there's always one keen sibling - this is one of our neighbours, 2 year old Lara who decided to join her big sister on the stage mid performance.  Very cute and entertaining!

And finally here's our Santa photo - done impromptu obviously by the attire and this is only the second year we've been able to convince them all to have a photo with Santa!


So is your Christmas crazy like ours - 2 more weeks of crazy on its way!
