Yes it's only November...

but we have got some of our Christmas decorations up already, including the tree. The children, especially Callum, are totally buzzing about Christmas this year, so we thought we would make the most of it and ensure we fully get into the Christmas spirit. Christmas is often lost in the hustle and bustle of things here, with all the birthday celebrations that go on at the same time. My mums birthday is the 21st, Josephs birthday is on the 24th, and Tiegans is the 26th. Somehow Christmas gets "fitted in", so this year we wanted to plan and organise things a bit better.

A couple of pictures...

Our tree looks like this, and Callum is still beaming :o)

Here's Tiegan putting the finishing touch to the tree...

In other news, we have 2 new additions to the household. Chelsea chose a budgie for her birthday present, so this is it...

And today whilst at Endsleigh Garden Centre, I came across this little chap and he begged to come home with us ;o)

They are settling in nicely, and have been nice additions to our "school room" whilst we have been reading and doing our maths and science work.

This afternoon we went for a lovely walk in nearby woods and we got lost! All of us, dh included. Still, the dog got a good walk...


  1. The tree looks beautiful. I don't blame you for doing it early. :-)

    It must be a very hectic time of year for you!!

    Love Chelsea's budgie, gorgeous colouring. :-)


  2. The budgies are gorgeous!

  3. Lots of "ahhs" from my household over the budgies - they are lovely. Elle

  4. The tree looks lovely!

    The budgies are nice too.
