3 sleeps to go....

Christmas is almost here and tomorrow Noah is 5 months old - I can't believe how fast it's all going by.

Rob and I are on holidays now and having a wonderful time.

Last week was absolutely mental. After returning from our relaxing weekend in Busselton it was straight back into house mode. Monday the paving was finally finished and then we spent the next few nights cleaning up the mess (why tradespeople have to leave such a mess in their wake I'll never understand). Rob heaved bricks and we swept for hours filling in the paving with sand (a job the pavers should have done - we won't be recommending them to anyone!!). Thursday the new shed arrived so Thursday afternoon and late into the night we were moving everything into the shed and emptying the store room which is about to become a playroom. Right up till we left for Rob's work Christmas lunch on Friday we were working on the house. It's looking really good now though and we're very happy we decided to bite the bullet and get the bank to pay for it!!!

The Oceanica Christmas Party was at Salt on the Beach (Formerly the Oyster Bar). It started with fruit and champagne on the beach and then we headed up to the restaurant. It was a beautiful day overlooking the sparkling ocean with good food and great company. Noah was a complete angel and slept through most of lunch allowing us to relax and enjoy our first day of holidays.

Friday night we hosted a BBQ at our place for Rob's Dad, Uncle and Grandparents. Uncle David and Pa and Bron have all come form Melbourne for Christmas and to meet Noah. Noah is very lucky to have 3 great grandparents. To see 4 generations together is really amazing.

Yesterday we went to Church (Mum and Holly and Jake and Abbey too)- for me it was a long time between visits and I don't think Rob had ever been before. It was really lovely to hear the Christmas service and sing all the carols plus kids from the church did some performances which were really cute. We have agreed to expose Noah to church and allow him to decide for himself as he gets older. After the service the church hosted a Christmas festival for all the kids with Santa arriving on a fire truck and heaps of fun things to do.

Today we're doing the last of the Christmas shopping and then it should be mostly relaxation from here on in. We already spent heaps of time over the weekend just laying on the floor playing with Noah and he has been full of smiles and giggles. We hope to spend most of our days doing that sort of thing and a few trips to the beach. I love Christmas!!!
