Even more Christmas stuff

Yep, that's right. There's more to show you!
Since we had to leave early on Christmas Eve my Mormor invited us over yesterday, the 30th, to "finish" Christmas. Aren't we lucky? Brad had had enough though, so my Mum and sister said they'd go....

So we walked around the tree and sang a couple of songs.

Opened presents (the boys got really spoiled). Then we had icecream and coffee.


Oh, I forgot this one Brad took on Christmas Day

H has been a major pain to photograph lately, he says "cheese", but while looking at the ground or running away.

I was so glad I got this pic of him! I can't believe he's nearly 3!!

December 31 already!!??!!

First off, a belated belly pic from the 16th December, I love being pregnant!


These are some of my gorgeous presents ready to go. I love wrapping!!

Thank goodness Christmas is over. It's such a manic time of year! Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas, the lead up, the excitement, the joy of finding the absolute perfect gift.... BUT I have to say that I love that it's almost a whole year til we do it all again.

Christmas for us starts on December 24th when we go to Mormor's for dinner and singing around the tree then opening of the presents. This year though, it was way too long and my boys had had enough at 8.30 so we left. Before presents!! So glad they are not old enough to "know."

Here's H with my cousin Brodie:Levi with a toy The beautiful tie shirts are from Rachel at Loopy Loo's

Next up we have Christmas Day. We refused to get dressed, excuse us!

Brad and the boys

Hunter getting over it

Levi and Mummy

Brad's parents for some unknown reason decided they had to come and visit us in the morning instead of all opening gifts when we got to Kristie's (B's sister) so they came over and did that, the boys had a sleep then we went to lunch.

Here are my beautiful boys with their cousin, the mature almost 4 year old Mikayla.

Miki and H playing with her creativity playdoh table.

Levi had a great time on the little trampoline. I wonder what Santa will have to bring next year???

Christmas Goodies

Well, I've been busy!

Yesterday I made this lolly wreath for my sister Kristie and her boyfriend Ben. It took forever and is more than likely going to be the only one I make. EVER!

Today I made gingerbread reindeer. Thanks go to KimV on eb for providing her recipe and pics that I could copy!!!! Quite happy with the way they turned out. They are for the playgroup CHristmas party on Tuesday but made them today so B could keep the mini cupboard opener (aka Levi) out of the kitchen.

That child just does not know the meaning of the word "no". He loves standing up and hitting the tv, opening the cabinet doors. The other day he went into the kitchen while I was outside hanging the clothes on the line and he had pulled ALL the baking trays out and was banging them together!!!!!!!
Yesterday, he was in the kitchen while I was hanging the clothes out and he found the small recycling bin we keep in the kitchen. I walked in to find him playing with B's empty Jack can. All over his front, all over the floor, gosh he stunk!!

Hunter's latest thing is to ask for something eg- go slide, and repeatedly ask for it. WHen we say not today, the reply is "we'll go tomorrow." Yes, a 3 year old is now telling us when we will do things!

Oh and my back is killing me and I have had a headache for 3 days now. Wish I could afford the massuese. Oh well after Christmas!

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

I know how cheesy that is, but honestly everytime I look at my tree, I start singing that damn song!

I am really looking forward to the Christmas season this year. I haven't finished my Chrissy shopping but it's still going to be fun. I'm even going to make gingerbread men!

Hunter and I are going to make salt dough decorations to stick on the tree today which will be interesting, I think. I'm hoping to do it while Levi's in bed, cos half the dough will end up in his mouth otherwise!

We're going to have 3 boys!!

I know, I know, I said it would be a nice surprise but after thinking about it I changed my mind. What? It's a woman's prerogative to change their mind. Particularly a pregnant woman's prerogative.
Today Brad and I went and had another scan done to find out the gender of our baby. Before leaving I had a coffee (!), well I wanted the baby to move this time and make sure we'd get the chance to see the bits. I also had a conversation with the baby in the car on the way to make sure he/she was aware we wanted a flash!
We told the sonographer we'd love to know the gender so she had a look and we saw boy bits!!! She even pointed out the bits and pieces! So it looks like we are going to be the proud parents to 3 lovely little boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am absolutely rapt! He was a cutie too! Sucking his thumb and kicking the probe around. Nice healthy bubby boy. Awww!

21 weeks already!

I can not believe that I am past the halfway mark with this baby! About 18 weeks til we meet the little one. I also can't believe that I've no idea of the gender of the baby. That is kinda crap, honestly. Oh well. Nice surprise at the end.
I still haven't bought anything for him/her. I'll have to go this week and buy a pink and a blue wondersuit. Can always give the other one away right?
Levi stood up on the weekend. Pulled himself up to stand on the toy box. I am finding that it goes so quick. The time, I mean. I can't believe my H'y baby is going to be 3 soon. Levi will be one. So scary! Great. Now I feel old...........

Check out my Slide Show!

It's been awhile

I'm a bit of a slack blogger, I think!
It's been a bit crazy around here. All 3 of the boys were sick so I've been "on duty" alot.

Kind of over planning for the wedding. I ended up telling Mum because Brad is just not into "the plans" I said to her that I was really worried about it raining on the day and having to cancel everything (Can you imagine?) She offered to pay for the reception venue! She is so lovely! She mentioned a place in the gardens so I am hoping she will take me to see it soon, so I can get a feel for the place (and measure the tables and see the facilities).

I'm also busily trying to get organised for Christmas. I am not sure what we are doing yet. The inlaws are pushing for us to come up to them but they are 3 hours away. I really don't know how Levi and Hunter will go in the car for that long. Uggh!!

Oh, Jamie my SIL is pregnant. Big surprise to her and us. SHe broke up with her boyfriend so will be raising bubs herself! She has polycystic ovaries and the Dr wants to perform a hysterectomy after the c/s so this is probably the only chance she has to have a baby. Very scary and brave thing to do. I think she knows what she's in for, though.

Here are some Christmas presents I've done so far:

Levi's on the move!

This morning my baby army crawled! That's right, he's moving. Oh I'm so sad and so happy, all at the same time. What did he move for? To get to Hunter's toast. Trust my little pudgy boy to move for food, right? Haha! Oh well. It's non-stop from here on in.

Hunter first crawled toward a beer bottle though, so at least it's not alcohol Levi is going for.

My baby swears like a sailor

The other day Brad was driving me crazy.....following me around and being his normal
charming self.

So I told him to Piss Off.

Sure enough, little ears were listening and for the rest of the night that was all we heard. He said it so clearly and pronounced it perfectly, it was hard to get mad with him!

The belly

It grows!

16 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby.

3 weeks til we find out whether we are having a boy or a girl!
