Christmas Is Coming

I don't normally start thinking about Christmas until after my birthday at the end of the month, but this year I've decided to do a scrapbooking Christmas journal.  A bit of preparation is needed though if I've got any chance of actually doing it through December so I decided to do my Journal dates over the weekend.

at the moment I can only scrapbook late at night when everyone is asleep!

Journal your Christmas online scrapbooking classI have to credit Shimelle who is my scrapbooking idol and inspiration at the moment who runs the online christmas journal classes.

Birthday Celebrations

Caleb's birthday Dinosaurs from Nanny and Grandad enjoying breakfast with him

a little bit embarrassed about this cake, but by the time I came to ice it I was exhausted and just threw icing and sweets at it.  Caleb loved it though

Greb, Ali, Matt and Livy put on a little party for Caleb

Trick or Treat

A very low key Halloween for us this year, with me incapacitated!! and it being a school night. But Grandma came to the rescue with lots of goodies and a special tea for us all. Maddie and Caleb just had to dress up too, although wouldn't really keep still for long enough for a decent photo.
We had a few trick or treaters but not enough to get rid of all the sweets that I have to hide from the kids now.
