Because I'm mad

Just when I thought life couldn't get any more crazy, it did. And it was all my fault.
I decided to:

Take twins (cousins) to Bunnings to get paint matched. 1 hr 35mins at the paint counter later....just imagine my nerves!

Went to the christmas tree farm on my own (well, with one little elf). The decoration shop was a child's wonderland and a mum's nightmare.

Painted the pool cabana with 4 kids who desperately wanted to help.

Started a new tradition of an 'activity advent calendar' 
(I'm still deciding whether this was a good idea or not)

Got the Lego out again after vacuuming up a kilo of it the day before.

Where are my big boys when the camera is out? I'm going to actively stalk them this week (watch this space for some annoyed faces) !

And with the last days of school coming to an end this week and next, I'm sure it will only get crazier.

I hope, amongst the chaos, you are able to take a moment to enjoy the season of advent that starts tomorrow.
We are off to Mass at 8:30am and then will come home to open our first advent calendar present. 
(and then paint the second coat of the cabana...sigh) 

Much Love

  1. We are off to Mass at 9.15 too. The first Advent candle is lit so the kids are really excited as this starts the Christmas season. Then home to decorated the tree and put on a few carols. Alison

    1. Lovely Alison, it's such a special time and seeing the kids so excited thrills me! x

  2. It will be Monday before my four are all home and then tree placement and decoration can commence.
    It is a crazy time of year, but who'd have it any other way!

    1. Not me, i LOVE it!
      I was thrilled to read on your blog yesterday that you had a good dose of rain x
