Merry Christmas

This is a peep at the calendar I've made for my grandchildren for xmas, you can see photos of each page in my scrapbooking gallery here:-

And this is a board game I made for the kids to play while opening their presents, yeah right Nana, don't be so silly! Well, I thought it was a good idea. Again you can see it better if you click on it.

In case I don't get a chance to post again before xmas day I'd like to wish all my visitors a wonderful time with family and friends and have a very merry christmas. This is my six grandchildren taken at various times over the last 10 years. The eldest, Lauren in the tartan dress, is now 10, the rest are Rebecca 7, Kate 5, Liam 3, Harrison 2½ & Riley 2.


The Lighthouse

On the 2 December we finally took a trip to Awhitu to the restored lighthouse that I've been wanting to do for such a long time! The lighthouse is at the south side of the Manukau Heads which is the entrance to the harbour from the Tasman sea, a rough place where boats founder and have often sunk in the past! I fully intend to do a layout with lots more photos but the xmas rush has taken over my life so it will have to wait until next month now. You can get a closer view of the lighthouse by clicking on the photo.

Xmas Holidays

Yay it's the start of our annual holidays today, can't wait to get away and fill up my NEW 4 GB camera memory stick DH gave me for xmas today. The trouble is I now need a new hdd to put the photos onto, my current one is full up! So, still trying to catch up from being absent for so long. I was up to the end of October and our weekend trip to Tauranga. On the 18 November we went to watch DS play a game of softball and I took a few photos while we were there. This layout is his son following in Dad's footsteps and the second one is Dad following in his Dad's footsteps!
