The last few weeks have been filled to the brim with adventures and catching up with friends and family.  I'm feeling slightly exhausted but in that good sort of way!

There have been lots of shows...

This last week I've been treated to a live stage show at the Civic in Auckland (Westside Story) to celebrate my Mum's birthday with my two boys and Mum...

The Civic is such an amazing building and experience!  West Side story was a great show as well.

There was also Hanson at the Auckland Town Hall (don't laugh or ask how I got myself into this situation!) with my eldest boy.  I did really enjoy the whole trip, especially hearing Nomad play live before Hanson.

When in Auckland, bubble tea, churro's and soft pretzels are a must!

We also had our school concert recently which was an amazing night.  I especially loved this acapella item which our boy was involved in (full clip here).

We've also spent some precious time with family and friends...

Symon's mum just celebrated her birthday.  She is such a precious Mum & Grandma to our family - we love her to bits!

We recently met one of our newest Great-nieces.  Such a cutie!

We also got to hang out with some of our besties - these guys are amazing friends and fellow pastors (Annika also has an awesome blog here!).

There was even some time for making one more little softie bear...

It's been a fun filled few weeks - here's to a bit of a rest with the holidays on the way!

p.s. Dining room reveal coming tomorrow!

  1. I just love your little softie bear. I would like to make one myself. Is it your pattern? Or can I just draw one myself?

    1. Yes it is my own design but feel free to draw your own!
