Things I'm loving...

Here are a few things that I'm loving at the moment...

The excitement that a few Christmas lights can bring. We were out late on Sunday night after having been to the Christmas Concert at our church, so we decided to take the kids on a quick drive around some of the Christmas lights in the area - Miss 2 was SUPER excited. It is starting to become one of our family traditions - much to hubby's delight (said with slight sarcasm).

Receiving packages in the mail... like this cute little Gratitude Journal that I won over at Sweet Tidings - thanks Christy!!  Check out her cute packaging too.

My super cool Dad who recently took part in his surf club's annual dress up Christmas doo (thanks to Micro for the great photos).  This year he was a businessman surfing with his laptop bag, pink suit and newspaper (laminated of course).  My Uncle was also dressed up as a shark (you might be able to spot him in the link).  My favourite is the guy with the pirate ship surfboard.

Totally loving Owl City thanks to the very cool Stephen Garton's recommendation!  Check out the website and have a listen... I could listen to it all day.

And I am loving the fact that a couple of pressies put under the Christmas tree a few days early are bringing so much excitement to the house!  There has been some shaking and guessing... rather expensive guesses too.  I don't have the heart to tell them that they are only cheap mini packets of cereals... oh well.

I hope you all have a great week - and find some things to love and be thankful for no matter what your life is like at the moment (just as my friend Arna recently wrote).
