Ok, I am still so far behind in recording our little family highlights reel here (and please remember this is a highlights reel... the reality reel is not so photogenic, haha, but we all know it is part of every family's real life!) - however I am inching closer to 2016 so sloooooowly catching up!!
Here is our December. After we returned from our Brisbane trip, gearing up for Christmas. We had a lot going on in our family during this time, it was not the most relaxing Christmas season, that's for sure! But as the kids wound up the school year, we still took the time to make memories and savour the little moments, and carve out time for our most treasured Christmas traditions.
These are the days....
|My first crop of garlic!! It took six months to grow but totally worth it for this delicious, flavoursome, organic goodness!!|
Even with giving a bunch away I was hopeful it would last our garlic-loving family a whole year - and so far so good!!?
|A bouquet of beetroot|
|Not sure if dolly just got rescued by these two firefighters or what!?|
|My sweet son. He has such a generosity of spirit xx|
|Character in spades!|
|This face. It slays me. Those beautiful brown eyes, my sunshiney boy xx|
|A spunky little lady...not your average princess!!|
|strong is the new pretty|
|what joy she brings xx|
|Reading the first book in our Christmas Book Advent...|
|Lily wanted to make her own Christmas cards for her buddies!|
|No fear. Dancing up the front during the community Christmas carols!|
|Enrapt by the opera singer with her little school buddy!|
|Look at that face!! Worth a few crumbs or what!? ;)|
|Ha!!!! How to even caption this image?! ;) #mycrazykids|
|When your favourite meal is baked potatoes, the best way to get them on the dinner menu more often is to offer to make them for the whole family. And so she does.|
|Decorating baubles to hand out at the local shops. Glitter glue and gem stickers - what's not to love!?! ;)|
|I was kinda proud of my home made drying rack, haha!|
And that was our December...
