this day 2 years ago I was packing my bags and getting ready to head into the hospital to be induced to have Lucas (I can't believe he will be 2 tomorrow!!)
This week's Shadow Shot is of him playing with his new bubble machine on the back deck yesterday as we set up for his party... for more shadow shots visit here
We had around 35 people to celebrate Lucas' birthday early yesterday and Elmo was the guest of honour !! We had yummy snacks and lots of playing and dancing. What a great morning. Now I am still trying to recover, just don't bounce back as well as I used to LOL.
I hope that you all have a safe few days leading up to Christmas, and that the jolly fat-man remembers to drop a pressie under the tree for you.
All the Best

And the Lovely Louise from Made by Miffy brought along something I ordered for my little man from her amazing new website. He loved his new outfit so much we actually had a fight getting the clothes back off him so that they could be put away with his Christmas pressies
Lastly I got a lovely surprise in the mail yesterday when I received my Handmade present swap gift from Jacqui.
Em will also be happy to know that I got organised (finally) and sent off my present for Bobbi in the USA, hopefully now I wont be black band from future swaps and Bobbi's present will hopefully have a speedy delivery and not arrive to much past the 1st.
Happy Christmas everyone, still cant believe how quickly it is coming around

Did you know that christmas is just over a month away? I know time flies.
today I decided to get my "little helper" Lucas to help me with my shot. We found a music box which has gorgeous little bears that skate around the ice when it is playing so he was fascinated by this... here is my favourite pic
and some of the sequence of him dancing to the music and then telling me that it had stopped.
Love is such a wonderful thing.....
We are off to hospital again tommorrow for another operation on his ears for more grommets, hopefully this time it might help him feel a bit more himself.
Have a great sunday everyone. Check out more shadow shots at Hey Harriet's blog here.

It is a very exciting day, as we will be drawing the winners of our very first Brisstyle blog giveaway, 3 lucky people will be winning a great prize pack of handmade brisstyle goodness....
I have made some really cute little ferrero rocher christmas trees for the tables today, I am happy how they turned out and how simple they were to make.
We are also doing our secret santa swap, so I cant wait to see what I get and if my recipient likes her gift :-)
Ok, well it is time to go. Have a great day everyone and I will see you back here tomorrow for Shadow Shot Sunday with Hey Harriet.

I wanted to share with you the absolutely beautiful hand stitched christmas ornament I received from my swap partner Rachel , and the equally lovely bag with a hand stitched santa on the front.
Lucas just loves the postman, and was so excited and thought the parcel was for him, I humoured him for some cute pics to share, but then quickly snapped my goodies back up for safe keeping until my christmas deckies come out.
Thanks to everyone who has been part of the swap, you should all be posting in the next week and receiving by the first week of December.
