Merry Christmas 2012

It's Christmas Eve and already the youngest one has woken early to see if there are presents in the stocking. We have the tradition of opening the stocking presents ( little pressies) on the night before Christmas and then opening presents on Christmas morning. I dont know how you feel you coped with Christmas this year but I have felt a little like I was struggling to get organised. It was wonderful to enjoy Christmas events- making gingerbread, carols by the lake at Narrabeen and the singing of carols at our church- I love it all. Had a great reminder at church to remember the reason for the season and why we are celebrating, that precious baby born 2000 years ago. It can be easy to get caught up in the busyness and not enjoy the moment!

I took the annual Christmas photos of the girls yesterday. There was lots of laughter, and teasing but Stell definitely found it difficult to smile for the camera ( and look)  we finally got there in  the end.

Today I am making desert for Christmas day and looking forward to using my thermomix. It is amazing!

We decorate the tree then watch White Christmas together

Christmas greetings to you all. So looking forward to sharing some new adventures with you next year! Lots of arty ideas in progress...
