Christmas 2017 our traditions

Only October and I am ready for Christmas. We have two new additions this year with Luke born in January our first Great Grandchild baby to Kayleigh. Ariel born 28 July is our youngest Grandchild. So had to add their placemats and bells. 

Every year we hang the bells on the tree before lunch oldest to youngest


I give each grandchild a Christmas decoration. This year we decided on a photo. I have added two photos to each ball.


We also give out suckers to the family member that has made us laugh with their amusing things they have done during the year. A few members get the suckers regularly… just saying … not mentioning any names. 😳


So with the familygrowing 17 this year. I have to be organized as summer is a busy time and I would rather be stand up paddle boarding than sitting inside.  Do you have traditions ? They make our Christmas so much fun and full the room with laughter.

So we did the baby shower with a bee theme

My daughter Mandy is expecting number two at the end of July. My eldest daughter Sally and I put together a baby shower. We were impressed with ourselves hahaha it came together ! Sally creatively made a baby in a bee outfit for the cake topping which came out even better than expected. Sally’s husband Steve made the cake and also made some fudge which we added to the bee hive boxes. Along with the embroidered serviette holders that are an embroidery design for lipgloss holders that I altered slightly sewing them on felt         Lots of daisies pulled it all together.
