Our Christmas Tradition

It's that time again when the kids are on holidays and they are allowed to stay up a little bit later than normal. This is the perfect time when we go out and see all the houses decorated with beautiful Christmas lights. The little man even came this year.

They get bigger and better every year. Bubbles, dancing penguins, sparkle sparkle sparkle!

This is my favourite -

Every year we buy some new lights to add to the house, but I don't think we'll ever go that far!

Billy Bonkers!

"We are the one's who make the chocolates sweet,
Who shake it and stir it till it's ready to eat!"

This year the girls did drama classes and presented us with this performance "Billy Bonkers and the Shake and Stir Factory". There was Billy Bonkers of course, Wiz Fizz, the big one was Poppy Fairy, and the little one was an Iggy Pop. We were very proud of our girls, they showed no signs of nerves and really enjoyed giving us a great show.

Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree

This week I finally got the stockings up and the beautiful personalised ornaments I bought off Etsy. Nanna has been and gone bringing all her Christmas goodies, the kids had a great time with her. Only 4 school days left until the Christmas holiday break. I can't wait!

Every year the kids get christmas cards and candy canes from their friends at school. This year I wanted to do something a little different. We've been making these little christmas tree ornaments that was inspired by the ones sold at "thecupcakery" on Etsy

They are sweet little things but we're halfway there (oooh Bon Jovi!) still more to make.

Sugar and Spice and all things nice....

This order reminded me of that sweet poem. It's my largest order of personalised pillowcases. Someone's been Christmas shopping! I think they are all just adorable.

If you're looking for a sweet girl baby name there are some good ones here. Some oldies but goodies I think!

I love the pinks on the white pillowcase. I wish my girls were still into pink.....
