Elf on the shelf: part IV (2013)

Drum roll……………
Little Rudy has wowed us once again. His mischievous ways have my little ones memorised, so here is a recap of this week:

…and tonight, sadly, we say goodbye to Rudy for another year.
Henry is devastated, "I don't want Woo-dy to go away".

Other things that have been keeping us busy (namely our 'Advent Activity Calendar) include:

Making Polveron and thinking of my dear friend Irene

 Intense heatwave ensured lots of swimming

The kids made bon bond, with "hilarious" jokes.

Worst decision of the year. I decided to paint the lounge room 3 days before Christmas. This is the 'what the hell was I thinking forced tired smile' shot.

And then Dad decided to make another spare of the moment Dad move, and start the studio.

We went to the cousin's Christmas party, where Dad played Santa!

And the men sang carols.

Then the Advent Calendar said we were to see the lights at the Cathedral. A must for all Sydney-siders.

Santa on his sleigh

The journey to Bethlehem 

The birth of Our Lord. 

The Madonna & Child

St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney

…and tonight this little lady helped me wrap the pressies. She will be introduced to her new mother (Lulu) in a few short hours….Oh the excitement, I'm bursting.

Righto, it's time to race, the Melbourne Carols by Candlelight are beginning on TV and hubby is calling.

Wishing you all a beautiful (and hopefully restful) Christmas.
May the Infant Jesus bless you all abundantly on His birthday and throughout 2014!!!

Thank you for popping by this year and leaving your lovely comments, every one is read and cherished.
Much Love
