And just like that, Christmas is around the corner..
(Warning: this post is heavy on Christmas festive cheer).
It has been a busy, and slightly different, year for the Red Cardinals.
Our son and his family moved from Sydney to Brisbane to be near us. We have been delighted by the arrival of our first granddaughter, and love spending time with her older brothers, the boy twins as well.
We seen them all once or twice a week for 'play' time..
and are still trying to keep our 'other lives' going as well.
Last week the Christmas tree went up..
I made it pink to celebrate our little grandie girl...
I have collected the occasional pink ornament for years, but never made a big feature of them before.

All the fragile decorations are not coming out this year..
Instead, we are having a child-friendly theme including this fabulous Lego Gingerbread house.
The little boys love it!
Some of my works in progress..
