We have been so busy lately what with Christmas parties and family and friends visiting.  We had the Make a Wish Christmas party last weekend. The Hard Rock Cafe were once again BRILLIANT in providing the location and food.  They do this at least two times a year.  Wonderful business.

We had a great time but all too soon it was over.  We went home and had a rest as that afternoon Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary were hosting their Christmas party also.  Stuart and Jacob decided to stay home so Emma, Brittany (cousin) and I headed off on our own.  We had such a fun time.  The girls loved feeding the kangaroos.  Didn't get any good photos from there.  

The wonderful Andrea Thompson  (photographer extraordinaire) came out to our home and took some more photos for us.  Andrea is absolutely beautiful and such an amazing photographer.  Make sure you head on over to her 
web page and take a look.  

These are just a few of the shots taken on the day.  There are WAYYYYYY more but I really do not want you to be bored to tears.  

Emma is doing ok.  Her tumour is still growing and it looks bigger and bigger every time you see it.  I am still praying madly that God will give us a Christmas Miracle this year. You just never know..........  
We are all looking forward to Christmas day.  We are having lunch here at our home again this year.  There are going to be a total of 25 of us.... It is so much fun when you have that much family around.  The kids get all excited and the mums and dads just sit around eating and chatting for most of the day.  My decorations this year are turquoise and silver.   Loving turquoise this season.

Was lucky enough to be selected by Nuffnang Australia  to test the 

Mortein NaturGard Automatic Outdoor Insect Control System

Couldn't have come at a better time as we have had so many mosquito's around the outside area of late.  I am thinking that it has a lot to do with the weather we have been having.   I will be back in another post to tell you all about it and to give you my opinion.

Can you believe that there are only 3 more sleeps until Christmas 2012???  This year has gone super fast and they just seem to be getting faster each year.  I am hoping that you all have the most joyous of Christmases and remember why we are celebrating this season.  I will give you a little hint - it is not about the is about the birth of a little baby boy thousands of years ago

God Bless, stay safe and have a Merry Christmas

Leanne :-)

HI there, well done on your win! I guess my scent of Christmas would be water melon, because we always seem to break open a melon and sit on the grass and eat it after lunch at Christmas!! Wonderful photos, and I do believe in miracles... Have a very Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

Hello Leanne. I think my scent for Christmas would have to be apricots, plums, peaches and nectarines. Only because i have a fruit orchard and these are the crops we are busy with in the time leading up to and beyond Christmas.

The photos are really gorgeous and Emma looks beautiful. What an amazing guy Benji Madden and his family are. I absolutely adored Joel on The Voice, he seems like such a larrikin.

I would love for you to receive a Christmas miracle for your darling girl. Here are lots of positive vibes coming your way. XXX Much love to youxx

Congrats on your win Leanne. Your pics are gorgeous. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Sorry I couldn't catch up with you (was sick the week before Chrissy then had to play catch up) - next week perhaps? Let me know ;o)
