Summer time and Christmas ornaments


Greetings and hey there my lovely friends

This weekend past  I took my chicklettes to visit with my Mum and Dad who are lucky enough to live a two minute walk from the beach.

Silly me didn't think the water would be right for swimming yet - of course, I didn't factor in that kids don't care about these things.   On our first day we walked to the beach in our normal "it's too cold" clothes...and the kids just pulled up the legs on their pants and walked in...oh, all except my middle chicken, who had no qualms about going in the water with his shoes on!!!!?  

I don't know if he forgot he was wearing socks and lace up sandshoes...or whether he thought it would be fun to get the lot soaking wet! No matter the reason, I place the responsibility on genetics...on his father's side.

Sunday was a very different story: luckily, whilst packing for the trip and being completely unawares of my chill-factoring, the boys had packed board shorts, so they had a decent swim and a paddle, not to mention a decent dose of digging in the sand. 

Our little Bella Boo was quite content to roll in the wash or innocently annoy her brothers: I have no idea what the boys were hoping to find, but am pretty certain a little three year old plopping down in the middle of their hole was not part of the plan. Every time they struck water, she would migrate over to where they were and pop right into that little mini sand-bath. The boys, frustrated with a squealing happy three year old sitting in the middle of their fun, would move on to dig a new hole...and once more when they struck water, in she would plop. Happy as Larry. From where I sat, it really was very entertaining. Champagne should have been provided.


(see those knobbly knees, those are mine! )

I can't wait for a week with the kids down at Mum and Dads during the Christmas holidays; lazing, playing, swimming, eating prawns, oysters and beautiful summer fruit and just chilling out in general.


Speaking of Christmas, I am busy making ornaments for the Creative Colour Challenge - Ornament Swap that Louise Gale (Dream, Inspire, Create) is hosting.

The idea of this festive creativity is to make four Christmas ornaments; one for yourself and one each for three other people using the colours of Red, Green and/or Gold. We have to make sure they are in the post by 3rd December, and given all three of mine are overseas postings I should try to do it earlier than that!  I have played with a couple of different ideas, but think I have found a result I am happy with.  So I promise to be posting those very soon, with a tutorial (hoorah!)

Big hugs

I left a comment here yesterday - how strange. Google has been up to its gobbling tricks again!!

Those are VERY handsome knees, I'd say!! Your children look completely adorable. How cute is your little girl plopping in her big brothers holes?! ALthough, they probably didn't think it was cute at all!!
