Still FULL! lol

Jumping on quick while Wayne takes Nathan back to his friends;-)

Did Santa spoil you??  I got really spoilt, and I wasn't expected it either- BWAHAHAHA, cause my hubby is usually a Christmas EVE shopper- he runs out here in the morning and comes back usually in the afternoon ( due to traffic and crowds- haha) but this year he was at home- and now that got me thinking too- When is the man going to go shopping dammit?- I at least want a book and my usual box of chocolates ( this is the Norm fill in when he can't think of anything else or runs out of time LOL )

Yeah ,he had done his shopping already BEFORE he even went on leave-and NO BOOK -lol, sheeeee's - the man really has gone soft! I got a bracelet that I'm tooo scared to wear! It's BEAUTIFUL! OMG- it's the first time he has bought me jewelry in about 5 years! We've always said any spare money would be for house renovations etc or spent on something WE BOTH could use- he decided I deserved it- AHHHHH- check this out-


He said it was so ME when he saw it - and he is right- I LOVE IT! WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO. (it's getting insured before I wear it though- lol)

Got a cordless keyboard and fancy graphics mouse from Nathan too and a Canon external flash for my camera! I CRIED! yup- like a baby- lol, I felt like a princess yesterday and Wayne even did the main cooking for lunch! He did I tell you! lol, I did the starters and the pudding and the table- he did the meats and Veg- it was really one of the best Christmas days I can remember having - it was only the FAMILY and we ate so much I got CRAMP when I BREATHED- bwahahahaha.

I thought I would share some of the photo's from my day yesterday with you-

Christmas 08 017

hee hee- he's a young man now- but like all of us a KID on Christmas morning.

Christmas 08 028

And our *fur Baby's* ALWAYS get a Christmas treat from Santa too- including new collars ( my kitty hates me at the moment- hers has a HUGE bell on it- BWAHAHAHAH)

Christmas 08 034

My housekeeper didn't want to go home this Christmas and stayed and joined us- she looked so cute dressed up in her traditional dress with her Santa's hat-hahaha

Christmas 08 038

The only time the family really have photo's taken TOGETHER is Christmas day- lol, but this year it's a TYPICAL one as the boys are now in this competitive joking STAGE- lol. Check the photo carefully!

Christmas 08 039

My Table- wooopie! lol

Christmas 08 045

See what I meant about my BOYS- hahaha- check Nathan nudging Wayne before he pulls the Cracker- hahaha

Christmas 08 052

With my Dad- awwww, we laughed as the cracker wouldn't BANG and we couldn't quite get it to tear-lol

Christmas 08 056

So I stood up to do mine with Waynes- my BIL is the one ducking as arms go flying as it tears- hahahahaha

Christmas 08 077

Trying to find space for AIR- hahahaha, we relaxed outside before coffee.


Loucee thank you, thank you, thank you for your GORGEOUS card and ornaments- -


She used my From Santa with love kit to make the card and the gift bag- how COOL is that!


And I got two of these Stunning Vintage handmade ornaments! Louise they look SO GOOD on my tree- thanks so much again!

And I got this in my mail this morning too-


Thanks so much Elle for this STUNNING Lo of your kids! It's BEAUTIFUL! Love the blending of the photo on the disco ball!!

And my Time Anew kit that Elle used is still 35% off- perfect for those up and coming old years party photos-lol


Check it out here.

And just a little something for you today- wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee-


Some *friends* word art to play with- . I hope you all have a super rest today and I'm now off to find something MORE to eat- hahahaha. Hugs and Loves Kim
