In the words of my gorgeous eldest daughter…
“Merry Christmas Everyone!  And a Happy New Year!”

I thought I’d leave you on this lovely Christmas morning with some images of some Christmas creativity…

This gorgeous gingerbread house was constructed by my children and their Granny while Mr FGB and I had our weekend away
Mum has been making a gingerbread houses every year since I was a child.  It was always one of my favourite traditions.
As there were 3 of us we would each get either the roof, the front/back or the sides of the house to decorate.  Granny did the same with my three.  
Can you tell who did which parts?

I’ll be taking a little bloggy break for a couple of weeks as we go camping along the SA coast.  I’ll be back sometime in January with some posts about Goose’s 8th birthday party which is coming around in a few short weeks!  

See you next year, my friends!
