Sunday Stills - Christmas Countdown












One: My Sprocket telling us all about it while he sits on the gate to a cow paddock. Daylight savings is playing sweet havoc with getting the kids to bed at anything like a decent hour. This was supposed to be a sleep walk in the pusher (hence the PJs!)
Two: Wondering about the likelihood of frogs and bugs.
Three: Poppet looking at her big brother wistfully. We didn't bring shoes for her but she made sure we did the next night!
Four: Poppet, joyous by sea.
Five: Coriander gone to seed. I must look up how to prevent this. So many things to learn!
Six: Picking one of our strawberries.
Seven: This is how you blow out a candle...
Eight: Poppet with her 'pink pen'. Poppet cannot sleep without her pink pen.
Nine: The festive Dog. It was decided that our dog is actually a reindeer and she was duly decorated with the Christmas stockings.
Ten: A tangled tree.

The weeks are getting busier in the lead up to Christmas. So much to do, but so many magical moments. Sharing some stills from the week with the lovely Emily at The Beetle Shack

  1. Your children are unbelievably good looking!

    My tree is also tangled. The lights got all entwined years ago and no one can be bothered breaking them up. x

    1. The kids did all the tree decorating this year... a very small tree with a heap of things = tangles! I love it though!

  3. Lovely photos- I love the one of your decorated dog, and the tree still looks divine- tangles and all.

    1. Issy was so patient while she was decorated and re-decorated. The Christmas spirit alive and kicking in dog-dom!

    1. She was so happy the next night when we brought her shoes and she could run too! (Moving on to trying to tire them out rather than lull them to sleep!)

  6. what a beautiful week you've had :)

    Our coriander seems to go to seed very quickly too- we've just stared collecting the seed to use again! We snip it off and tie it up in an old muslin baby wrap :)

  7. I'll have to try that. I was so happy with our coriander... and then it went. And much as I love the flowers... I really loved fresh coriander!

  8. Yep. just leave the coriander, let it dry all out, collect the seeds and let some fall back into the garden - self seeding coriander!
    love the strawberry pic!
