The night before Christmas…

Ethan was SO excited when this arrived in the mail yesterday.  He was worried that Santa may not have been able to read his return address on the letter he wrote.  Luckily Mama sent Santa a quick email just to make sure.  It’s quite handy how all of these guys have email and cell phones these days, Ethan was playing with a friend today and they were sending Darth Vader all kinds of text messages.

Ethan and I spent yesterday baking up a storm – The Annual Christmas Shortbread.  This year Ethan did an amazing job, next he’ll be doing it by himself I think!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

    1. The NZ Post website does it every year! You fill out an online form and they get mailed out – just make sure you time it AFTER the kids have mailed their Santa letters!

      Have a fantastic day – looks like it's going to be the hottest Christmas Day ever!
