We had a really lazy Saturday morning. Small watched Star Wars, Smallest and I drew and coloured, Moo unpacked boxes and Huffle became Mr Fix-it again.
More pen on his face than on the paper, but loving every minute of it
Huffle very smug with his hanging work
Moo delving in the boxes like a hungry hobo
Smallest decided he wanted to do different 'thank yous' this year. So he made a Christmas decoration for his friend back home. Then we drew a thank you picture for Grandma and Grandad. And then another one for Aunt & Unc Pear and Pest and HB. I can't show you fully because they might be reading! Then Small started as well - he drew a lovely picture for Grandma and Grandad too.
We stayed in our PJ's most of the morning, then had a light lunch and got our snow gear on and went off in search of hills to sledge down.
We were recommend a place which was gentle hills and slopes and great for kids. Only $2 each and we stayed their for over two hours. Great fun. The kids loved it - to be fair so did Huffle, Moo and I.
Moo and Smallest sledging - extreme!

A quick snicnic break again (we ate the Chappos chocolate - thanks)
Whheeeeeeeeeee - Moo whizzing down the hill
Smallest was going down on his own. On his front, back to front - he didn't care, he just went for it. Every time he got to the end bit he rolled off, in a very dramatic way.
It was very tiring trudging up that hill all the time.
Moo had a wetness problem - senior moment?
We had a quick trip to a supermarket, came back for dinner, bath, couple of games and then Moo put the kids to bed.
Now it's our turn. The wine is open, a cheeky little red 14%. The cards are shuffled. The brownies are warming and the ice cream is chilling. Ahhhhhhhhhh.
Happy New Year to all my readers and all the best for 2012.
