We Wish You a Merry Christmas

December has flown past and believe it or not it is the day before Christmas.  My boys are on their summer holiday break so computer time is limited during the day, although those who follow me on Facebook know that I often post there.  The beauty of having a cool mobile phone  :-p  By the time evenings roll around and I can sit down for a breather I am exhausted and for the last few weeks I have also been madly finishing off some presents.

I thought I would let the pictures speak for this post,

this has been my December....

- I made some presents....

- Did a bit of decorating....

          Jellywares washcloth swap, wasn't I lucky Jodie was my partner

- received some gorgeous SWAP goodies....

- have been doing lots of swimming, although the creek is desperately shallow.  The rains are due any minute!

- had a visit from this lovely Christmas beetle.  I haven't seen any this colour since I was a child, isn't he gorgeous....

- entered a competition and won a fabulous prize!  Ethan and I had a lot of fun taking that photo....

And here we are on the eve of Christmas.  The excitement is tangible in this house with two youngsters waiting for Santa.  I am finishing off the Gingerbread house and the oven is on so it is HOT, HOT, HOT... sounds like a typical tropical Aussie Christmas.  Family are arriving at our house tomorrow so I am in a cleaning frenzy as well, not sure why as it will all need doing again after everyone has left  :-)

I hope you all have happy holidays and I wish you many blessings, health and happiness for the coming New Year,

much love


  1. Loved this post. Loved your presents, especially the bunny slippers and snowflakes. But everything had your loving Jenni touch. I'm tired, too - and wish I had more of that child-excitement around here. Instead of being full of hope and excitement, I'm just worried about what details I've missed. That was SOME shot of you, soaking in fleece! Crazy girl. Love you! Have an exciting Christmas Eve, you and the fam and the horses.

  2. Merry Christmas Jenni!!!! Thank you for the Christmas card! :)

    I love that photo of you in the tub. You need to frame that thing!

  3. Aw.... Look at you. That is one sexy photo.

    And all those beautiful hand made things.
    Hippy Hoppy Christmas
