Merry Christmas!

I know I'm a week early, but we're heading off on holiday leave on Tuesday night straight after work, so I won't be able to post again until after Christmas.

We are making our annual pilgrimage to Melbourne and Bendigo to visit our families and spend the festive season with the ones we love and who love us. All of the grandparents are very much looking forward to seeing young Romily - she has come along and grown so much since they saw her last in October.

She is becoming a very beautiful person, although she is a real handful. She is the tantrum throwing queen, but then the next minute can be just delightful. It's hard as an adult to remember to not stay mad at littlies! I have to keep reminding myself that I'm the mature one in this relationship, so I'd better start acting like it!

I'm looking forward to showing her off to our families. She won't really 'get' Christmas this year, especially as we don't have our Christmas tree up - we figured since we're going away and she'd only destroy it, there wasn't much point. I will make a big effort next year - and it gives me 12 months to make a tree skirt :)

So Merry Christmas everyone - stay safe, eat too much, drink a bit (but not if you're driving) and enjoy some time away from work and with your loved ones.

What Christmas ornament are you?

You Are an Angel

A truly giving soul, you understand the spirit of Christmas.

Merry Christmas!

Who do you think she looks like?


Or daddy?

Just kidding. I find it fascinating how so many little girls look nothing at all like their mothers, and very much like their fathers...but in a good way!

Alexandra's quilt is finished!

Well I must confess I am feeling a little proud of myself - I have finished my first quilt! Thanks to my helper Carl, here it is!

This is the one I have been making for my friend's new little daughter Alexandra. I am very happy with the way it turned out.
My in the ditch machine quilting certainly could have been better, but practise makes perfect, so I'd better practise some more! And, as Joyce pointed out, that's why I should choose meandering or wavy patterns next time LOL!

I hope Di likes it and I hope the bubba thinks it's very cuddly and snuggly - not to mention bright!

She's no angel

For those of you who think Romily is an angel, I give you this, my beautiful sleeping baby...

For those of you who have 'been there, done that', this is the real Romily!!!

Just kidding of course. She is both an angel and a little devil - all at the same time - one of the joys of parenting :) Posted by Picasa
