So today, I proudly present, A Week in Pictures, as bought to you by me and the handy dandy iPhone...
|LittleBee finished school for 2011...|
|... while LadyBug spent lots of time on the phone!|
|LadyBug and her special nap time snuggles.|
|We learned that LadyBug can plank and watch tv at the same time!|
Phrases for this week, out of the mouth of the Lady Bug: an enthusiastic "YESSSSSS" and a parroted "Oh Man!" Lots of "Mumma" which means anything from 'take me to the woman' to 'pass me that remote', and "Nooo" which is being used very accurately at the moment. "Tahdoo" for thank you and "taaadah" for give that to me!
|The tree went up...|
I say "the tree went up" but you don't really put "up" a tree that is smaller than the toddler! This time last year we were packing up our house getting ready to move here. Rather than go all out with a huge tree like I would have loved to, I purchased this quaint 90cm tree from Kmart with the intention on buying a big new tree in the new year. Well, seeing our LadyBug is an avid climber, we decided it would be best to stick to the little tree on a table top for this year again, and then hopefully we can put up a huge new tree next year. I have only had to save the tree (and the baby) twice since it went up, but I do hope that next year she won't be as inquisitive... wishful thinking I know!
We shared in some special thanksgiving meals, one with or family friends and a second one with our Church family. We have certainly seen our fair share of turkey and pumpkin pie for this season!
|We loved on a very special new little guy...|
We also shared in some Christmas festivities at the annual RAAF Christmas Party, kick starting our Advent activities for 2011...
|... and loved on a baby goat.|
|LittleBee was transformed into a gorgeous butterfly and shared a kiss with a flower power LadyBug....|
|... then snuggled up with Santa.|
Day by day I see my little girls growing... and it's hard to believe that we are getting set for Christmas again (already). I'm looking forward to seeing what this week will hold for us, and hopefully this time next week I will have a lot of finished sewing projects and a lot more happy snaps to share.
