Boxing Day Pool Party in the Countryside.

Even though it was overcast and a little coolish, it didn't stop the kids from going in their cousins new pool. The first official Pool Party!!!! They were in and out of the pool all day. The rest of the time they were playing with their Christmas presents, while we chatted non stop to family and friends. It was a lovely day to catch up.

Christmas is almost here...

It's humid and hot, 
I'm not sure if our gingerbread house will last. 
If not, it will be yummy to eat!

Last Day of School

The last day of school is always so much fun. At L's school, they do a guard of honour for all the Year 6 kids that are leaving and moving on to high school next year. The kids have so much fun and it is really lovely to watch. I even got a tear in my eye.

Carols by Candlelight

One of the downsides of a Summer Christmas in Australia is that it is daylight until about 8pm. Carols started at 5.30pm tonight, and the sun was still shining! We really enjoyed it though.

Vintage Photographs

I am loving photography at the moment. Old school is so beautiful!

Vintage Drawings

I used to draw a lot more than I do now. That was before I had kids, and before the internet existed. I would take pages from magazines and just draw faces, sometimes for a few minutes, sometimes for hours. Here are a few of my drawings from the late 80's/90's when I was in high school.
Just came across a drawing I did 22 years ago!
This is a drawing I did when I was 17. Long time ago.
This is a portrait I did in 1990!!!

A cool cubby

They built this yesterday, a cubby on the balcony. It kept them amused for hours. 

Untitled
This morning they re-made it and watched a movie on the iPad together. So sweet!

The Cutest Christmas Mouse Ever

There he is, right in the middle looking straight at you! It was the sweetest Christmas play ever. They all did so well. I'm a proud Mum!

Ten on Ten - December

Today was always going to be a good one for this month's 10 on 10 Photography Project. We had a full day planned and I was very snap happy with my camera. 

The end of the school year is winding down, 6 weeks of summer school holidays start next week, so all the end of year presentations and concerts are happening almost every day. Today we had the final day of Gymnastics for the year, as well as the little one's Kindy Christmas Concert. 

I hope you enjoy...
