A Christmas Party, Scrapping and another Birthday!

Wow, what a gorgeous day we had here today on the Gold Coast! The sun was shining with a lovely light breeze... perfect for our Prep Christmas party at the park! I have to say that the two mums who organised everything did such an amazing job. There was a jumping castle for the kids, heaps of yummy food, a Santa pinata, cricket, totem tennis and then Santa came and handed out some fantastic goodie bags to each and every child! We finished the day off with a huge cake. Needless to say the kids all had THE BEST time.

We were a little worried about the weather yesterday as it was overcast and rainy all day, but thankfully it was all good today!
There was yet another birthday in our house this week... this time it was Paul's turn. It was a shame he had to work and didn't get home until late but we still managed to squeeze a birthday cake in.

Now for a little scrapping.... Last night I actually made myself sit down and finally make my Kaiser Christmas countdown tree. I've had it sitting around since before last Christmas... just didn't have time last year and had forgotten all about it until recently. It's very much based on the one that Sandra made at the shop last year... I loved the papers she used so grabbed some for myself at the time. Can you believe it's only 25 days until the big day? It's creeping up way too fast!

While I'm sharing... here are my two layout examples from Wednesday's Scrap-a-Sketch class at Sunbird.

That will have to do for today! It's time to get the kids into bed... then maybe I'll be able to get a little more scrapping done.... crossing my fingers! Hope everyone has had a great weekend!
