I am proud of all I have accomplished this year after being a 'stay at home Mummy' for so long. It has been busy and a huge learning curve for us all this past twelve months, but we have all come out of it enriched and more appreciative of all we are and have. I have decided to make a few changes to my blogging for the future. I will no longer be uploading my scrap pages individually... I have decided to keep my blog for family news and photos. I do still adore my scrapping and it is such a essential part of my life, I hope to maybe do a slideshow of some recent pages. Of course there have been NO scrap pages of late, my scrapping 'to do' list is longer than Santa's present list - seriously! But holidays are here now and I can't wait to throw myself back into my passion.
I will leave you with one of my favourite Christmas pages of this year. Above is a page using some of Ange's fabulous designs. I believe no one quite makes Chrissy trees like Ange! This kit is soon to be released, so click on the image to go to Ange's blog where you can keep your eye on its release and some other amazing goodies Ange is always giving away.
On December 1st, the children and I had our usual annual Christmas photo shoot ... it was fun! Hugh and Katie even ventured to hold and snap with my camera ... thus Hugh and I uncontrollably laughing as Katie is pointing the heavy camera in every direction but at us and finally snapped that pretty good shot!
Each year 'Santa' leaves some ornaments around the house. This year you can see he left a whole wooden little tree where each day magically ornamenets would appear. Hugh was somewhat sceptical but the conviction and certainty of Katie's cries of awe left no one in doubt, "it really IS Santa".
Can you believe my baby girl has finished her first year of school! She delighted in each and every day and ended it on an absolute high with a Prep Concert on the "Zoo". Her class were the frogs and all in all it was a fabulous concert.
December also see's Katie's birthday. She and a few little friends partied on at McDonalds eating, dancing and playing. She also had her dream fulfilled - yet another Barbie but this one came with a horse!
Her other request was some more Night Garden toys and what would a birthday be for Imelda without yet another pair of shoes! Happy Birthday to my darling little shadow!
You really are growing up too fast and by the length of those legs will soon be surpassing your mother in height!
