Christmas Day- Part 2

From Craig's family celebration, it was time for Clay and I head to my family. Originally they were all going to be in Blackwater (the reason we had early celebration a few weeks ago), but Kate and James headed down instead.

The boy's opened our gifts and all looked through the stockings Santa had left them.  Clay discovered the joys of a whoopee cushion!! :)

After it cooled down a bit, we all heased outside for some ice blocks and water play.

We all had a wonderful day with our families and Clay crashed out early from all the fun and excitement. I hope you all had a wonderful day too xo

Christmas Day - Part 1

Due to having a big day and taking lots of photos, I'm splitting our Chriatmas Day into 2 posts:)

We started our morning in bed having a look at all the goodies Santa keft in Clay's stocking.

After checking out all the goodies from Santa, we headed into the loungeroom to open presents.  Clay was very surprised / excited to find a new bike - Craig and Clay did a few laps around the loungeroom lol Clay was more excited about opening presents this year and there was lots of fun playing with all tje new toys.

After opening rhe presents and enjoying some time together, we headed over to Adam & Jacinta's for Craig's family Xmas lunch.

More presents opened and catching up with everyone.  Diane cooked a delicious roast dinner - pork, turkey, ham and lots of vegetable sides, with cheesecake for dessert.

Fun With The Cuzzies

We have had a few fun filled days woth the cuzzies - crafting and swimming :)  Yesterday the boys made some masks - lots of fun colouring and putting stickers on.  Then out the  back to splash in the water and cool down.

This morning mum and the boys came back over for a swim in the pool.  Lots of aplashing, jumping and diving - perfect on such a hot day!!  Then some morning tea and a play in the shade while drying off.

Looking forward ro lots more cuzzie play dates these holidays!

I had a play with some new dies and metallic papers to create these quick & simple Christmas cards.  I'm really happy with how they turned out!  Unfortunately the photos don't show how pretty the shiny paper is.

Everyday Moments

Some silliness while out shopping one day :)

Nan sent this photo one day while out shopping - when did my baby turn into such a big boy?!?

I had my work Xmas party a few weeks ago - it was nice to relax at the Moore Park Beach Tavern and enjoy a lovely lunch (especially the peanut butter cheesecake with caramel sauce and salted caramel popcorn), a few drinks and even a visit from Santa.

Craig and Clay enjoyed a birthday party at the beach this morning - a play in the warm water was a great start to the day!

I had my Christmas break up for Simply Crafty today.  It was a lovely day - scrapping, chatting, delicious lunch and thoughtful Secret Santa presents.

Christmas Craft Activities

Another fun filled craft morning today, aunty Kate was home to join us.  Mum brought over some christmas hat decorating kits - so everyone got to work on their hat.  Mum and Kate got a bit competitive and Clay thought it was more fun to decorate mummy instead :)
