We woke up this morning to a very special surprise! We had a visitor and he brought lots of yummy treats :) First we read a letter from Santa himself explaining about our visitor and why he has come to stay with us. We also had to think of a cool name to give him so he could tell all his elf friends when he returns to the North Pole. The boys got new colouring books and a new Christmas story book to read before bed. They also got Santa mugs filled with candy, Santa hat brownies, candy cane milkshakes and loads of swirly North Pole marshmallow's.
Next the kids named our elf.. We went through some silly names like snowman and poopy pants before settling on a name Mason thought of 'Doxy' with his own special nick name of 'Doc'. Doc had his own letter for us to read. He told us how he fly's back to the North Pole every night to report to Santa about how naughty or nice we have been. He can hear and see everything we do so we should always be on our best behaviour. He has special Elf magic too and you can never touch him or he might lose his magic :(
This is what we woke up to :) How beautiful and christmasy!!
We had lots of fun meeting 'Doc' and can't wait to see what he gets up to while he is here :)
It's hot here today so our Santa hats were melting!! I guess they don't have that problem in the North Pole though. Mason was enjoying yummy candy canes mmm!
Ginger bread men :) First you show them off..
Then you dunk them in your milk :)
Till next time hope you are enjoying the silly season. 'Merry Christmas' from my family to yours and 'Doc' the elf :)
Gosh its been forever since i've blogged anything :( This year has been pretty full on and unfortunatly I haven't been all that creative with scrapbooking. I've done heaps of crochet and been focusing on my kids, photography, rabbits (yes real rabbits) I am starting my own rabbitry with these adorable creatures. I have always been a huge animal lover infact I don't think I have ever been petless hehe.
So my wonderful fiance and my boys are doing well. In 8 weeks time Jayden is starting Primary School!!! I can't believe it and im going to be so lost at home without him here. Mason is off to Kindy next year so the upside is I get two full days to myself each week :) Gotta be happy about that.
Can't believe Christmas is almost here only 16 sleeps eeek! We are off to QLD this year for Christmas to see family and have some fun on the Gold Coast :)
Anywho, I don't have anything planned for the weekend so Im actually going to try attempt some scrapping. I know I've said it before but hopefully I will have something to show before the weekend is over :) xxx
I hope you all got off to a great start in the New Year. I have been feeling fantastic and a whole heap of stress less :) I had Squishy's 1st Birthday party, Christmas and New Years all within 2 weeks! So the last week I have been trying to relax and spend more time with my gorgeous family :)
I have been so heartbroken watching the flood situation on the news and reading horrible stories and cry's for help on facebook. Here is a fantastic way us crafter can help out.. Rising Waters Flood Appeal

We welcomed a little fur baby into our home almost 3 weeks ago now.. His name is Moxie Cat and he fits in perfectly. He likes to follow the boys around and play all day and I am finding he has started to have naps when Squishy does LOL! Here he is..
Mr Squish is getting BIG and eating soo much.. As you can see in the top photo he has his spoon and nom nom's ready to go :)
Hmm what else.. OHH I have a bit of an addiction to these!
They just look so adorable on Squishy's bum :)
We have been doing some changes to our house.. Put lattace around the bottom of the house and finished the shed. Dad came over and spray painted it for us on the weekend. Looks Great! We went to bunnings and got some paint etc for our lounge room today. Jayden cracked us up in the car. I said "We will go to bunnings and Sam's" well he got all excited and thought we were going to "Bunny's and Santa's" PMSL!!
He doesn't really let me take photo's of him anymore but here he is helping with the yard :)
Mad about Scrapping had a cyber crop last week and I did the blind scrap.. It was fun creating this layout and I felt like I was blind scrapping myself LOL
I will leave it at that for now :) Take care gorgeous people!
