    Love the zoobs!! We’ve been playing with them all week. This week’s pictures are gorgeous.

  2. We have been having mad, crazy cousin fun! We are with cousins we only see once or twice a year!

  3. Wow, you have been busy this week. Our outside pictures are filled with snow, so we have been sledding and making snow balls, snow caves, and snow men. When it was time to get warm we were, crafting, making presents, baking and playing board and card games like crazy. I am getting Uno-ed out!

  4. Happy Christmas Se7en + 1 ! We’ve been swimming, celebrating 1st birthdays, playing with far-off cousins, staying up late and now we’re heading off for a week’s family break. Time to relax at last!!

  5. Since the rain has kept us indoors, we are mainly playing games together. We are big into board games, card games, and now Wii. Reading is our next favorite thing. I’m having to lay off the baking or else my clothes won’t be fitting by next week!

    This is my first time visiting your blog. Love it. We only live about 90 minutes from the beach. It’s our favorite vacation spot every summer.

  6. The short people have been eating yoghurt ice lollies, staying up late with kid friends from America, hanging out at Boulders beach with the penguins, swimming in the mountain water at Silvermine reserve, making nativity sets, feasting at Ouma’s birthday tea, and generally indulged and enjoyed the leisurely pace after 3 weeks of being unwell in relays!!!! Have a lovely week!

  7. Our best family fun was finding boots and shoes to put our stocking stuffers in, because we always overflow the stockings. Don’t know why I made such small stockings, but they are Tradition, so we have to get inventive. Best wishes from the northern US of A where the snow lies silent and deep around us.

  8. My 6 year old and I found my Granny’s button box and thread tin (she was a dressmaker) today. We had great fun matching buttons with thread and disccovering different names for colours!
