1 week old

Livinia was one week old yesterday. We're doing pretty well so far, life is very busy though. I picked up conjunctivitis on Monday for the first time in my life (great timing), so have been to the Doctor's twice in 2 days as the first lot of eye drops I had an allergic reaction to. That was not fun. Getting over it now though, and looking forward to Christmas.

Our little Christmas tree

This is our little Christmas tree, a potted woolly bush, which is native to Albany, Western Australia. It is called the woolly bush because it feels so soft to touch. It is decorated with 7 Ostheimer angels, it needs a star on top though. Hopefully we'll get a few Christmases out of it before planting it in the garden.

Christmas is coming...

Now it's the first of December, I'm "allowed" to put up Christmas decorations, my eager little helper just wants to play with them all though :) Here's our Ostheimer 'mini' nativity scene, minus the king's animals, hopefully they'll join us next Christmas. Evie is loving all the angels in our house :)
