Sunday afternoon we got home from the Gold Coast - had showers and headed back out the door.  We went to mum's for a Christmas / Cohan's birthday party.  The kids enjoyed a game of soccer while we chatted.  We enjoyed a yummy meal and the kids got Christmas / birthday presents.  A lovely way to end a fun filled werkend :)

Kristy's 40th Birthday- Part 2

Saturday - It was nice to meet some new people and catch up with another old school friend.  We had fun taking selfies, used the photobooth, enjoyed yummy food platters and socialised.

After some fabulous speeches it was time to cut the cake!

Photo booth pics :)

Sunday - We were up and enjoying another hot breakfast, waited for Bec & co and chatted about the party.  Boo gave Clay his Christmas present - spoilt :)

Then it was time to hit the road- we went through some pretty heavy rain and stopped for our Krispy Kreme donuts.

It was a crazy, busy, fun filled 3 days - pefect to celebrate Kristy's 40th and Boo's 18th birthdays!

Kristy's 40th Birthday- Part 1

Friday - It was finally time to celebrate Kristy's 40th and Boo's 18th joint birthdays!!  We set off to the Gold Coast Friday mid morning - mostly rainy weather along the way :(

Lunch stop and ice cream :)

Arrived at Kristy's and chatted with Bethany till Kristy and her friend Glenva arrived home.  Bec, Dale & kids arrived after checking into their hotel.  We had BBQ dinner, then party prep began (with some drinks and lollies to sustain us lol)

Saturday - After a delicious hot breakfast, we packed up all our cars with party gear and headed to the venue to set up.  There was a balloon /photo wall, lolly bar, photo booth and table decorations.

Getting ready for Peppermint

Only a few more sleeps till Clay's elf Peppermint arrives from the North Pole!  

Kristy enjoys Peppermint's antics and brought some props for this year :D  She gave us some goodies when she was here for her card camp - some shoes and a figurine friend, plus...

A tent, sleeping bag, fishing rod amd camp fire set

A bath tub!


When we were in Yeppoon for Bec's birthday she gave me some scrapping goodies and another prop for Peppermint - a Flamingo pool float lol 

I got this cute elf door set at Kmart a few weeks ago and the sweet tea set.

Looking forward to another year of Christmas fun :)

Santa's Arrival Parade

This morning we went to the shopping centre where Craig works to see Santa's arrival / parade.  Clay has shown interest in Santa this year - pointing him out on TV ads and even approaching him and waving at the shops.  This is a huge improvement to last year, when he would see Santa and start yelling "no no no" and try to get away from him. 

He really enjoyed the parade (apart from a drum band - too loud / noisy for him) and was excited to see Santa :)



It's not the best angle / pic, but I love the expression of awe on Clay's face as Santa gave him a high 5 ❤

Hopefully all these positive interactions with Santa will lead to a happier / less traumatizing Santa photo this year - fingers crossed!!!!
