(Belated) Sunday Stills

A busy, hectic week. Only now that we're on the road can I finally exhale. A busy week, but with some beautiful moments. We've been deep into craft, so grateful for rain, and beginning on the first of the Christmas celebrations. St Nickolas has already visited the kids, filling their stockings the night we stayed with my parents in Melbourne. There will be presents under the tree for them when we arrive in Brisbane. We had an early Christmas party at my Grandmother's and it was lovely to see the children explore her bounteous cottage garden, exclaiming over cicada shells, butterflies and dragonflies.

1. Early morning flower in my parent's garden
2. My Grandmother in her garden
3. Poppet Painting
4.Poppet Painting her princess-arm to make arm prints (scorning the potato cut-outs I made)
5. End results -wrapping paper and cards
6. Grandmother's garden
7.Poppet in her great Grandmother's garden
8. Roadside blooms

We're a third of the way on our journey up to Brisbane. Wagga Wagga tonight. The kids are restless after a confined day and tomorrow is our longest stretch. So we'll see how it goes!
