The Weekend

The weekend has passed too quickly, now there is only 2 more weekends before Christmas! We had the Youth Group from church here today on a progressive lunch so I made Pavlova Rolls again. The berry syrup was seeping a bit too much so I had to plug the ends with extra whipped cream!! Last night I made a button Christmas Tree. I still need to fill in the gaps but wouldn't one all in white buttons and white pins look great?
Marion was borrowing my 3 tier cake stand today and I had it out ready to take to her so I decided to fill it with gold baubles while the lunch was happening. What an easy centrepiece!
I love my new spotted bowls from Myer too, just need some yummy things to fill them. You see the funniest things when you are busy doing Christmas decorations! A brown nosed Rudolph????
I buy a new Christmas decoration every year for the boys, so that when they are ready to leave home, they will have some of their own decorations - and they will already have a story behind them. As N loves cats, this is his.
And this is B's - to signify the year that he got Spike.

I'm off to Adelaide again tomorrow, this time for a girls shopping trip -with Marion and Kirsty - and we are having a sleep over!!!
