Chrissie Fun...

Every year.. we all do a family chrissie photo to put in our chrissie cards!! Its been my mum's tradition for as long as i can remember!! And now I do it with Matt and I too (yet to acutally DO them yet this year though) But i did go up to do the 'original' family photo! This year we asked our friend Goomblar if he could come over and be part of our chrissie card photo as most of the christmas cards are sent to family in Switzerland we like to show them part of "down under" and goomblar being a Australian Native Aboriginal we thought it would be great to have him in our cards!
Here are some of the *fun* photos we took...

Goomblar and Me

John, Goomblar & Siany

Also, Last saturday night (1st december) I was winging that I didn't have an advent calender to count down to chrissie. Sian said she'd make me one! I did think that that was very nice of her.. but I also thought it would never happen! How could she feel like going home late on a saturday night after a busy double shift and start creating... well, I was wrong... Siany DID make me the most Gorgeous and Excitng and Special Advent Calender EVER!!! I cant believe all the work she put into it, it must of taken HOURS!!! Thank you so much Siany!! I look forward to opening every envelope everytime i wake up!!
** Please note.. Siany MADE all the envelopes from scratch!!! WOW!

These are the ones i've opened so far....

I am so happy for you and Matty. And your Mum and dad of course too. What wonderful must have been very hard to keep it quiet till now, I don't know that I could've done it.
You are due right about when my new niece or nephew is due too.
Is'nt that funny? my sister was due around the same time as emily f this year too, so its been interesting for me to compare the 2 babies.
So this will be cool :D
Siany must love you a lot, that is a terrific present. Love the family photo shoot too.Have never done those for xmas cards..maybe one yearI'll get around to it.
