Christmas at our house...

Here is Oopsey, just hanging around in our Christmas tree...let's take a look...

I have some cross stitch decorations that I made...

...and some hand-made baubles...

a cute little glass nativity...

It's hard to believe that I cross-stitched all these decorations 19 years ago, before Kirby was born!

Finally, Oopsey in front of our tree. We have a real pine tree for Christmas Day, resting out in the garage. I think this one looks pretty real too.

I've been baking Christmas cookies - I've made chocolate candy cane biscuits, shortbread, cherry biscuits and chocolate chip cookies. Still got a few more to do like gingerbread, malt roll and some rum balls then I'll package them in gift boxes to give to my friends.

We had a hot 38C day here yesterday then this morning I awoke to rain on the roof and we have had about 24mls and the temp was about 19C. My garden is looking lovely and fresh but I know the weeds will pop up in the next week leading up to Christmas. Still, our lawns are lush and green. That's the best part about living in SE of South Australia - we really get all the seasons...sometimes only days apart!

I'm gradually getting things organised for Christmas, a few more pressies to buy then I'm done. This weekend will be spent doing a final tidy up around the place in readiness for Christmas Day. How are things doing at your place?

  1. I love the music you have on. Your tree looks wonderful, mine looks like a 1 year old has been torturing it. Oh yeah, one has. I left all my ornaments in the box and let the kids put all of theirs up. I have only made snickerdoodles so far. I am having a hard time getting into the spirit. :) Maybe this weekend will get me going.

  2. I really, really like your tree ornaments. It's inspired me to do something about ours.

    Oopsy looks so cute on your tree too. It's lovely she could be "home" for the holidays.
