Nut Crackers

With the christmas season apon us there are lots of different foods in the Supermarket and Max found a bag of nuts the other day and was very intrigued. We brought some and Max and Jay have had heaps of fun getting them out of their shells and eating them, as you can see it a messy job cause I dont have a nut cracker so were using a mini hammer. Green stuff on chopping board is playdough so the nuts dont fly off and damage somthing/one.

Dancing Santa's

Check out Max, Jay and his cousins Coral and Beau dancing a xmas gig at the bottom of my blog. Cracks me and the boys up everytime we watch it.

Meeting Santa.

With much excitment we went and meet Santa at the mall. Max was very keen to tell him what he wanted for Christmas but Jay was a little reserved so mummy had to step in for support so unfortunally the pic features my legs, never mind. We look forward to him visiting our house in a few weeks.

Christmas Wonderland

Today I got my fix of christmas lights big time. Took the kids to the Christmas Wonderland in Birkenhead and all I can say is OMG there was every christmas tree you could imagine even a "where the wild things are" tree which was Max's fav and my fav had to be the silver crayfish and crab tree sounds weird be truely magnificant. Jay liked the Tonka Truck tree the best.
This is a must see if your in Auckland and have kids or just love Xmas.

Christmas Tree Time

I decided today was the day the tree was going up. I know its not offically the Xmas month but all the shops start the decorations early so why cant we.

Jay is a much older this year and was delighted with the big box of decorations that was brought out.

Lotos of fun but as usual I  ended up doing most of it as their attention span was all off 30sec.
