Our Pressie Loot

Christmas is definately not about the gifts, however, its hard to deny that this day and age is about the giving of presents.
This year I tried to think about my gifts I was buying and started doing so properly in August. Bits and pieces at a time.
But here is some of the kids and my loot!!

A gorgeous Get Crafty Calendar, a paint your own Babushka set (bit worried as I am not the  best at painting!!) and my Project Life Voucher (it hasnt arrived in Australia yet)

My amazing books !!! How awesome, my "To Do List" is ever growing!!

I got super spoilt by my husband, these gorgeous Cat Hamill bracelets

Yay, my Wish List came true, the Cutest Button necklace EVER

Red Birkenstocks, So gorgeous (yes I have big feet)

I also got a beautiful gold watch, with a really large face, just what I wanted (from my parents) , some gorgeous clothes (again Mum had great taste!!) a new insert for my Inner B diary and some other really cool stuff, so SPOILT!!

And just to make me even MORE spoilt, by my hubby of course, I got this!! In white, its shiny , its gorgeous and it now has pride of place on my kitchen bench!! A Kenwood Patissier Mixer!! Its so devine and very extravagant but I have wanted one for ages and Noel put it on layby in September to afford it for me!! How sweet is he!!


Stella's loot- this is only half, the Stella Puzzle is from Mooo, a new clip holder from Aunty Kristy (babushka), a Jessie Doll , she also got a scooter, a sand play table, a hairdressing kit, some nappies for her Baby Bjorn, a gorgeous headband, some play foam,  some puzzles where you have to thread the lace through the hole, and lots of hair stuff, a nail set, a few books, SPOILT!!!

HOW CUTE IS THIS?? Noels Mum made it for all her little bits and pieces. She got a friend to make the babushka with her embroidery machine, and then made the rest.
 My talented MIL also made Stella, the cutest little dress , and a crayon bag, so I will take photos of those and post soon too! She bought me a new big cutting mat, and rotary cutter for sewing. Time to get serious I think!!

A small snippet that our littlest girl Lacey got. A poppet from Pikelet Workshop, a gorgeous softie a back right from Mamas and Papas, a super soft sock dog and the most amazing pig money box, all handpainted!! (my Mum got the BEST presents this year for the kids!! And me!!)

Max's loot- Mamas and Papas softie, left, Pikelet Workshop Super hero at back, a sock doggie in the front and again, the most gorgeous money box, a spotty cow!! Thanks Mum!!

So I definately think we got uber spoilt, and we are all now so lucky to have these amazing new and precious things.
