Boxing Day Leftovers

We had so much food left over from Chrissy day, that it was nice to spend the day with Mum and dad, Liz and Derek and Claire, just eating, drinking, swimming in the pool and relaxing enjoying each others company.

Food for the Soul

It is such a nice night out with these girls every time we see each other.  On Monday night we went to 150 East restaurant in Ascot for a Chrissy catch-up.  Was such a good night with everyone talking, laughing and just enjoying each others company. There were prezzies for everyone which is always exciting :)

 Sometimes to get organised to go out is such a mammoth task.... With getting the kids Bathed, fed and ready for bed before i go, but when you are there... it is so worth it !! Can't wait for our next catch-up in the holidays, which i think is a swim and with all the kids at our house!

I weighed in at Weight watchers on Wednesday night and i'd reached my goal weight... YAY ME!!!

U2 Concert

Last night Adam and I went to the U2 concert. It was an amazing show!! We met up before hand with my cousin and my brothers for a drink.

 The stage was unbelievable... So huge!!

Even though we were in the 3rd tier of the stadium and quite far away, it was great just being there and listening to Bono live.

Santa Photo

I went and got Elise's photo with Santa today... For the first Christmas of each of my kids i have had a photo of them taken with Santa... and then i figure if i never get another, it doesn't matter, i got one when they couldn't I think she looks very cute and happy on his knee.
Nic was with me and even though he didn't want his photo taken, he did go up and talk to him... which is huge for him :)

She is on the Move..

I cant believe my baby girl is crawling....
Which is great... don't get me wrong... but the down side to this is that I'm going to have to mop and clean my floors a hell of a lot more :)
Sorry i haven't got any more of my December daily pages up, but my computer had decided to chuck a spack lately and i am finding it hard to recharge it, so cant be on here for long. Have been keeping up with the photos so, can do my pages when my computer is working a bit better.  I have a very bad feeling I'm going to have to take it to get fixed.. by the thought of giving up my computer is NOT good!!!  lol

 December 7th sees Sam writing his letter to Santa asking for a BEN 10 omnitrix ( lucky Santa is already onto that one and has it

December Daily 5th & 6th

 December 5 -Is all about the boys and I putting the tree up.  Adam was away at work when we did it.  I  allowed the boys to put the decorations on the tree which at times was hard for I had to allow my OCD when it comes to the Christmas tree to go out the window..ha ha ha.. especially when Nic was putting 4 baubles on the same branch!!!   But they had fun and that's all that matters.  I will admit though, that when they went to bed that night i fixed a few of the decorations up and spaced them out a little better... ha ha

December 6 - This was all the Outtakes of the photos i was trying to take of the kids in their Chrissy costumes.  It was a very funny time.. My mum is standing behind me, making an idiot of herself to try and make all the kids to look at the camera at the same

This Photo was the best i could get of the 3 kids
