A Tuesday Tune, A New Baby and Two Birthdays!

Well, this was truly an amazing weekend! 

My niece Maisie was born Saturday the 17th!

Happy Birth-Day Maisie!



 My daughter Maddy and my sister Stacey also celebrated their birthdays on the 18th! 

Happy Birthday Maddy and Stacey!




December is such a fun month for our family!

Here are few happy snaps from our busy weekend that I would love to share with you!

Welcome to the world sweet little Maisie!

Prayers needed please!

I'm sorry that this week's Say G'Day Saturday Linky party is not quite ready yet but today we found out that my sister Holly is finally in labour!

This picture was taken a couple of days ago...on the day that Holly found out that bubs had turned herself around and was not only posterior but she decided to lay on her side! Poor Holly was supposed to have an induction the next day but that couldn't happen as it would be too dangerous.

Today my cheeky little niece has decided that she is going to take her time to make her grand entrance! Holly went into labour this morning but still nothing has happened!

Holly is getting a well-deserved massage from Maddy.

As soon as I hear some news I will be back to regular posting! In the meantime, I am sure that Holly and John would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers at this stressful time!

Come on little one...hurry up!

Best wishes,

Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party ~ Christmas Tablescapes!

Hello dear friends! I'm so happy that you have dropped by to visit me in my little corner of the world Down Under today. I hope you have all been enjoying the first week of December. We have had a great week so far as my kids are now on Summer vacation! We have been baking, relaxing and catching up with our family.

I have nearly finished decorating but I am not quite sure what to do for our Christmas table.

I have tried a few ideas for the table....
