Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Saturday, December 18, 2010

Things have been rather busy around here, but there has also been so many things I'm loving... actually, too many!  Here are a few...

Christmas plays... they are cute, funny and often very moving (I cry easily), reminding us of the real reason for Christmas.

My boys current love for barbecuing!  For the past 3 nights they have been helping make dinner on the BBQ. My oldest even requested his own BBQ for Christmas next year (and I thought he was growing up wanting a plain duvet cover and carrot cake for his birthday)!!

p.s. those paisley aprons they are wearing used to belong to their great great Grandmother Nandi. Crazy! 

Free stuff... like this free David Crowder 'Oh Holy Night' download, these free cute printable Christmas tags, and this site with tonnes of very cool and free stuff!

Rain!  We have really needed rain up here in Northland, and a few days ago it finally came - so I sent the kids outside to play in it!

My brave big boy (who by the way is now wearing his Dad's t.shirts).  We ended up in A&E last weekend when an infection/bite of some sort sent red lines up his arm and started causing pain in his armpit and into his chest area.  It was a bit scary for a moment there - but thankfully all is well now.

Dads who don't mind dressing up as pirates and leading treasure hunts at their child's birthday party (my girls look a bit nervous)... 

More precious pictures made just for me from a very special daughter... 

Lastly Boo - and the way she just seems to know that this is the 'girls' room and the place to hang out when she needs some girl time. 

Have a wonderful weekend and week leading up to Christmas!
