Well it has been another busy week here.. Christmas is getting closer and the boys are really starting to get excited.. Especially as they have now seen Santa twice.. Which leads to its own probs.. I am now getting the 'why are their two Santas?' question. It is gonna be hard keeping Connor from figuring things out next year I think.
Brodie is really starting to walk so well too.. and the look of excitement and pride he gets on his face is just classic! He is getting into everything now and is a real climber.
We had Connor's orientation day for Prep last week.. He loved it.. He didn't want to come home.. a good sign for next year. So after we left Prep he really enjoyed being a 'big boy' and coming shopping with me for some of his school supplies.. A good opportunity while daddy looked after the other two boys. He was soo well behaved.. we had a really fun time.. if only they were like that when they were together at the shops..sigh! a mother's dream!
We went to my aunt and uncle's on the weekend for Sunday lunch and the boys loved it .. they had a great time checking out the shed and all its big boys toys.. and it was great to catch up with some of the Rellies. It feels like forever sometimes between seeing family. At least we have some wonderful family living relatively close. Now to just get better organised to catch up more often!
Christmas tree goes up this weekend which is really going to get the boys excited. I have nearly finished Brodie's stocking but I had better hurry.. not too long to go! The boys have also made their Xmas decorations for the tree. Every year I try and get them one special decoration each and this year the two older boys made their own.. I think they look pretty special!
And I have actually done some scrapbooking this week. I know I promised myself I wouldn't until I finished the stocking but I happened to pick a photo at random to have a little play in the windows editing. Pushed a few buttons and voila.. I discovered you could see me in Declan's eyes. What are the chances I would pick that photo! You can also see Greg in the other eye but it didn't come out in the print. I just had to scrap it and for once the page just seemed to fall together.. Must have been fate..
Well I hope you are all having a great week..
