Welcome Christmas! heel and toe,
special and fun as ours. Every year we have to
of tea or coffee first, do we have to wait for
Brandon on the other hand is very laid back and would
probably wake up after lunch and then open presents.
Don't you just love the mop of hair (centre bottom of picture!!) ? That would be Brandon. To have him out of bed at 7.30 am was as much as you could possibly expect. And zippy Cory couldn't contain himself!! Charge!!
Even my big boy was all excited opening presents. Now the
question is....which one is the biggest kid?? lol.
The early part of the morning was spent at home enjoying the spirit of Christmas. We then spent Christmas with my niece and her lovely family. A nice Christmas lunch and then opening of gifts. A cool swim was needed as well, the temperature was about 42C in our parts.
I love the extreme differences in certain hairdo's here.
We absolutely enjoyed ourselves at Christmas, it is always extra special when you have children around you. They are so funny to watch and some of the things they come up with - priceless.
A little while ago I was given a bag full of strips of wadding, and finding it impossible to just throw it out, I wondered what I could do with it.
The claws are made from bits of felt as well as the spikey bits across the top of her body. I used some buttons for the eyes and even some of the strips of wadding that were left over, to stuff her with.
This is the fantastic book the pattern came from. I have had it for years and when my boys were small, I made several fun things from this book.
Today we are expecting a top of 43 C, so I did some ironing first thing this morning, helped my hubby empty the trailer out at the tip, now my plan is to sew. I'm thinking pirates sounds good!
Whatever you decide to do today, have a wonderful time doing it.
