Another year has passed and it is Christmas again already! Life is passing by so fast and it is moments like these that I am thankful for eternity.
- we ate homemade pizzas together
- had a puppet show renactment of the story of Jesus' birth starring Daddy as all characters and Mummy as narrator (reading the Bible)
- Cut up some carrot, apple and sprinkled reindeer food (oats and blue glitter) on the front lawn as per Inda's request.
- Hung the girls' stockings on their door ready to be filled with love and fun for tomorrow
I hope you have a wonderful holiday and take the time to think about the Christ in Christmas.

Well only just...
So at lunchtime, the clouds started to roll over and I was wavering in my decision to have the party at the park but on we went, confident that God had this covered. We arrived, and just as we started to set up, down came the rain.
Aghh! In a bit of a flap, my dear friend came and said, "Mum and Dad are happy for you to use the theatre if you want?" Yep thats right people. It just so happened that my friend's parents own Avoca Beach Picture Theatre which was just across the road from where we were. And so, in the pouring rain we had Noa's party in the beautiful grounds of a heritage listed theatre. God totally had this covered.
The kids ran around in the rain, squealing with delight whilst the adults hovered undercover chatting away.
Happy Birthday was sung, the cake devoured and lots of good convos enjoyed.
