December is over Phew!

Its been a rush here, with the end of school and
getting ready for Mikes Mum and sister to stay over Christmas at my Mums all the while Mum is having renovations.  
Feeling blessed to receive these lovely handmade decorations from the two Leonies!! Left This lovely house from Leonie at Kiwi at Heart blog and Right Leonie from Sunshine x 3 blog  creating six of these cute crochet baubles for our tree

   The original plan was for them to stay at ours, but time crept up on us and our garage/office/guestroom was and is still far from finished.

  sneaky peeking at the first of the presents

Then we entered into a new year with a great gathering at our neighbours.....carrying sleeping children back into their beds at 2am on New Years day!! during these weeks there were the many various visitors dropping in to see us, and a neglected garden going crazy with all the rain....huge marrows and cucumbers coming out of our ears!

And with all this, straight after school finished one by one all the children and Mike succumbed to some nasty bugs that have been floating around
 Quiet reading time on Christmas day

 and then I of course was the last to fall sick on Boxing day, with a nasty strep throat......urgh!!

 playing against Nana with his new hockey puck table made by Dad

I put my downfall down to too many late late nights into the wee hours before Christmas day as I stitched up a storm creating Handmade Christmas presents for my kiddos 
(last minute crafting is the way I roll )
The sore throat sucked! but getting my creativity back was AWESOME!

So I have soooo much to show you.....but here is just little a sneak peek till next time......

Sometimes these viruses are natures way of telling you to slow down a little. I hope you are all back on your feet and have chopped your way through the giant vegetables. Great to see you back

My Mom LOVED the little purse- really loved it! And Cate of course adored her "ballet"- which is code for any pretty dress xx
