Baby Jesus, friends & a new high chair…

Matilda did a wonderful job playing baby Jesus in Road to Bethlehem this week. Here are some pics (she had at least 3 marys over 1 night)-  Yesterday we had the opportunity to catch up with or good friends Belinda & Joel and their adorable daughter Zannah while they had a stop over on their way to Tassie for the holidays. Heres Belinda, Zannah, Matilda & I – Zannah & I – Our babies getting to know each other –  Zannah- (isn’t she just a doll!)   The boys were there too but I don’t really have any great shots of them…sorry Joel. On the way home we called in to watch Josh play Volleyball and then stopped at Knox to get Tilly her Christmas present…A high chair (too big to take on holidays so she gets it early).It’s a great chair as it converts to a table & chair for when she is older –(sorry, she looks a bit stunned in these pics from the flash when we took the pics last night…she was also very tired).Well, she slept from 9:30 last night until 7:15 this morning! Then she went straight back down until 11:15! What a champ!!!ok, off to try our stamp maker again.. xx

The silly season…

is apon us. Here are some pics of Tilly to get you in the Christmas mood… and one for Uncle Josh  On the 1st of December we headed over to Dannii  and Israel’s for the traditional turning on of the Christmas lights on the house up the street. Every year Santa comes to this house to help them turn on their Christmas lights. Here are a couple of pics from the evening…   The house is just SO covered in lights…there was even a runway for the reindeer to land on! They had a giant blow up snowman and Santa and lots of others.School finishes up next week (the kids finishes this week) so we will be headed home to the visit the fam for Christmas soon.Next week is such a busy week for us. On Monday night I am teaching a class for Scrapniques . It is a great little class where we will be making a standing Christmas decoration. The class is just $15. Here is a pic of the finished product…  ‘Road to Bethlehem’ starts next week and Matilda will be playing baby Jesus on Monday night at 8:30 in Nunawading for anyone interested in going to have a look.  On Tuesday night Warburton Christian School are having their very last speech night as the school closes down at the end of the year. I feel pretty sad about this and would love to head up there for a last visit. Wednesday night we have LAA staff tea and Thursday night we will be babysitting  the Best girls…so a very busy week for us being out pretty much every night which will suck but thats ok.  Not much else to report except that when I went out yesterday I forgot to tie Rusty up and when I got home he was gone!! We drove aeound and walked around looking for him all afternoon but couldn’t find him. I got a phone call this morning saying that the ranger had picked him up and he was at Coldstream animal shelter so Shannon rushed out to get him…well $180 later and we have him home safe and sound! phew.  Let’s hope that doesn’t happen too often.Anyhow, thats all from me now.
