Christmas and the new Year!

I have fallen a bit behind in my blogs! You would have thought with the holidays and Jem being around i would of had more opportunities to post, but it seem to fly by and before i new it another occasion would come by and here we are at the start of Feb and I haven't even posted about Christmas!

This Christmas was one of favourites. Mum really out-did herself! The house looked incredible. She had fairy lights everywhere and crimson red details beautifully placed all around, candles burning and Christmas trees twinkling.

The kids had a ball at Mum's and we as a family had a lovely time there too. It was really relaxing being at Mum's with no plans, Christmas Day in the pass, beautiful summer days spent lounging in the garden, catching up with friends and eating leftovers.

Before we went down to melbourne the kids had a very fun morning here at Sunnyside opening presents and enjoying them.

I forgot to get a photo of Roma with her new super soft 'cloud pillow' which she has slept on every night since! We had a really special family Christmas last year, it will be locked into my memory forever.

The next super exciting event was Roma's 1st birthday! Can you believe it? 1 year old already!!!
Our little angel has blossomed into such a perfect little cherub! We are loving how she is changing and working her way into this family. Jem and i cant wait to see what she will add to our family dynamic. All the kids have such different roles and gifts that they bring to the family table, it is amazing to watch how those traits effect, rub off and influence others.

We find ourselves asking, 'who will Roma lookup to?', 'who will she enjoy playing with?', will she clash with one of us?'. So many exciting moments in time to look forward to.
I love this photo of Roma surrounded by family and not understanding what all the attention is about!

Thanks to Carli for these lovely and rare photo's of me with Roma. They mean a lot.

In the last week Roma has just started walking! It is amazing to see. My last baby starts to walk away from her baby year!
