Merry Christmas

I’ve been counting down and I am all ready for Christmas.

I have a little Christmas tree made out of tangrams on my wall. My favourite decoration is our “Christmas doggy” – he’s dressed like Michael Jackson, his eyes light up green, and he plays a fake version of Thriller and dances.

We made our family tree from large boards – we chopped them with a hand saw into a tree shape and then spray painted them.

Mummy knit a little Christmas runner for my table.

It’s warm here in Australia, but we managed to find snow… in a big plastic snowglobe… in a shopping centre…

I left my sweater on a little longer. Mum had to put on the air conditioning.

We don’t have a fireplace – so I lit a little flame for Santa just in case.

Mummy knit daddy and I matching stockings. She says daddy will learn to knit and make her one next year. *Dreaming*

I am very excited for Christmas morning. I asked for a skateboard.

Fingers crossed, we all get what we’re dreaming of.

    Merry Christmas Marshall! (Mummy, Daddy incl) I love your little Christmas doggy! He has a Michael Jackson suit much like the one you have! I also love your Christmas tree and the table runner your Mummy knit for you! You are all very resourceful and creative! And you all look fantastic in your Christmas sweaters!

    All the knitted items, wow! Just beautiful. LOL about the sweater vs. the A/C. (I can relate). Excellent tree. What a creative way to eliminate pine needles. Happy Holidays!

      Yay for warm Christmas! My mum is a knitting machine :) The other great thing about our DIY tree is limited assembly and easy flat packing until next year! Merry Christmas to you xoxoxo

Show me some love xo
