Lenny is loving the trike he got for Christmas. This year was a completely different scenario to last year when all he was interested in was the wrapping paper. This year he loved opening and giving presents.

And new years was a hoot. He had an awesome time playing with his little friend C. They are really little boys now playing with each other rather than along side each other as in the past. They even climbed up and started dancing on the table. While it was clearly a bit dangerous, it looked like too much fun to forbid!

Christmas stocking

Home-made Christmas stocking Lenny’s stocking is ready just in time! This is made totally from old fabric, binding and buttons found lying dormant in mum’s cupboards. I know the felt has been there at least 30 years so it’s great to see it finally being turned into something useful.

Because I’m crap – I mean really crap – at drawing freehand, I simply found a Christmas stocking pic online, saved it, blew it up and printed it out over two A4 sheets. I then stuck these together and used them as my pattern for cutting the felt. I did the same thing for the Christmas tree outline and then simply sewed on a few old gold and silver buttons as decorations.

I’m going to give this to Lenny before he goes to bed tonight and tell him it will have some pressies for him inside when he wakes up in the morning – hopefully a little incentive to go to bed and not come wandering back out half a dozen times the way he likes to do now.

I’m going to fill it with bubbles, two lollipops (lollicups as he calls them), stickers, little gardening gloves and an Incredibles DVD. I picked up the DVD at Vinnies and it looks good so I’m hoping it works, otherwise it will be off to the shops on Boxing Day for a new one!

Other than that there will be a shiny new trike under the tree when he stumbles out tomorrow morning – oh and no doubt lots of other things from doting grandparents and aunts.

Oh and don’t get me wrong but…as excited as I am about our impending new arrival, I hope Lenny doesn’t get his new baby brother for Christmas!

Santa’s little helper


Lenny dressed up as an elf for his kindy’s fancy dress Christmas party. I can’t wait to show him the pic of him wearing red tights when he’s 16!

Christmas in Brisvegas

Lenny’s in bed early – well 8.30 is early for him – after a huge Christmas day at Grandma and Grandad’s.

He was showered with gifts – so many he’ll need his own suitcase to get them home!

Opening pressies

It was a very hot, humid Brisbane day so Lenny had fun cooling down in his splash pool.

And of course, he was forced to wear cute Santa hats to amuse the adults.

Merry Christmas everyone!
