Mum and Dad left at about four o'clock to travel down to Melbourne (five hrs away) to go to Kynan's Graduation (CONGRATULATIONS KYNAN!) which left Eden, Rogan and I to look after the little kids until Braedon and Anna-Lisa arrived(they were staying while Dad and Mum were away) and brought Saxon home as well. That night was an early one. I took Trahaearn to bed, went down stairs and then went up and read my gorgeous Return of Sherlock Holmes. Friday was busy, looking after little kids, and then sitting down in the afternoon and watching an episode of William with Anna-Lisa and then watched Matilda which Anna-Lisa hardly remembered seeing. Her facial reactions were rather funny, especially with parts like the Trunchball throwing kids out of windows and Matilda's Mother and Father. :) Good times. We finished off The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, 'we' being Anna-Lisa, Eden, Rogan and I. I just love that movie! :D Not long till the next part! Though we won't get it as soon as a lot of other people around the globe. :(
Saturday was an awesome day! And I mean awesome! We went to a march/rally for True Marriage, I am still working on a post, but I carried a sign and we all marched down Main Street, there were tons of people filming us and taking photos and it just filled me with such a great feeling that we were doing something more than saying how Homosexuality is wrong. There were about 200 people or more, so quite a nice group. :D
Once we got home me and Rogan untangled Christmas lights in preparation of the following day and we went to mass. After that I fell asleep in Trahearn's bed, but woke up at 3:00 am in the morning, when a very tired, Dad, Mum and Autumn rocked up. Yeah, forgot to mention that Mum and Dad after going down to Melbourne had to drive all the way up to Sydney to get Autumn. So a LOT of driving!
Yesterday was starting to stir up the puddings, putting up the Christmas tree, and getting excited. :) It was a very busy day nevertheless, Oh! and we made Wassal and had biscuits and Wassal while lighting the first Advent candle. Happy Advent Everyone!
And today, had been a very busy day as well. Full of tidying up for decorating the house (Done thank Goodness!) and doing our Advent studies.
On my to-do list is: Finish Christmas presents, Make Christmas Cards, Have very constructive and productive days revolving around Advent stuff and reading plenty of Advent books. While I'm here I might show you a few of my personal favourites. :)
I saw this on Facebook. I've seen it many times but I just wanted to post it anyway.
And by the way, can I just say how jealous I am of all you Northern Hemisphere people? Having Christmas in Winter? Wouldn't that be lovely!
So, that's what I've been doing, what about you?
