Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, December 16, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

This is our last Things I'm Loving linky for the year!!!  I will be leaving this linky open until Christmas, so you have no excuse not to link up your lovings!! ;)

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

Loving making extra naughty delicious Peppermint Bark.  This version is a three layer peppermint bark, inspired by this recipe.  This stuff is dangerous people... only make it when you are expecting a crowd or to give away...

Loving Playcentre!!  On Wednesday we officially had our last day at Playcentre... ever.  It's been an amazing journey, spread over 11+ years with our 4 children.  I have met so many wonderful people and have watched my children grow and develop into amazing kids thanks to it, as well as growing myself.  With our baby off to school next year, she was super proud to receive her leaving certificate and special gift...

Loving spending quality time with my big boy.  He is growing up sooooo fast, so I'm savouring every minute I can...

Loving the Rosella's that regularly visit our place...

Loving the way our girls "help Daddy wash the car"...

Loving spontaneous family trips up North to buy cheap trees...

This is us on our way up...

And on our way back home (reminds me of this trip)...

Loving this amazingly delicious berry cheesecake I had the pleasure of sampling, made by the wonderful Arna-Lise... sooooooo good!!

And finally, loving this cute Christmas ornament from my beautiful blogging buddy Leonie (Kiwi At Heart). Definitely the cutest ornament hanging on my Christmas tree - thank you so much Leonie!!!
