a tad tardy


My loot from Ross & Tallulah!

testing out her wheely bug!

loving her xylophone

made everyone put on fake finger moustache tattoos! 

super cute gnome dress! Lentil (mums cat) gave Tallulah a nice xmas present a scratch on her cheek!

a trike!

 my reindeer pops!

my amazing lampshade (called the Billion dollar view!) from my mama!

Hi! We're still here...! Happy new year everyone! I am little late writing about our Christmas and new years but better now than never right?! This Christmas was soooo super nice and relaxing! Its funny how having a wee human makes all these holidays and occasions just more joyous and fun, am I right?

Ross and I woke up on Christmas morning around 8am and patiently waited to Tallulah to wake up! She finally did around 9:30am- whose child is this? Its not my normal 7:30am waking child! Ross and I were thankful for our 30 minute sleep in haha!

We made some delicious mango, blueberry and white choc pancakes and then opened PRESENTS! Hip hooray! Man I love everything about presents, the giving, the receiving but maybe not so-much the buying haha!

Tallulah loved all the paper and her new toys and guess what her favourite present was? These $10 foam blocks that "santa" gave her! I mean what about the awesome tiger wheelie bug your mum and dad gave you? Nope did. not. care. HA kids!

We packed up the car and headed over to my mums for a seafood BBQ lunch which was soooo good! Mum got all fancy on us and served scallops wrapped in prosciutto and Ross and I voted it the stand out dish of the day! So good my mouth is watering now....

We got spoiled again and scored big! Ross got a pasta machine (yay!), I got an amazing lamp shade which I had been coveting for a while and Tallulah got her trike which thankfully she LOVES! Phew!

After some delicious choc mint tart (seriously my mum did such a good job!) and a nap we headed over to Ross' parents for dinner! He has a large family which is such a foreign thing to me as my family is super small  (like me, my mum and my brother!) but its so nice to have grandmas, aunties, uncles, cousins & nieces! Its makes it very festive!

We got bombarded again with presents and were very happy with our loot! We dined on a traditional feast including ham, turkey, chicken, prawns and many yummy salads! I made these cute reindeer marshmallow pops which were a hit!

We crashed into bed around 10pm with fully bellies, a boot full of new shiny things and good memories! Geez I love Christmas!
