Boy has it been a busy week - there have been lots of christmas activities with the girls and a few earthquakes again to shake things up a little just before Christmas !
This week we have spent a good deal of time in the swimming pool and the girls have loved it - they are in there for hours at a time! The nightly ritual of helping dad to put up the Christmas lights and inflatable toys before they go to bed is always popular too!
Here is one of ours
We have taken all the girls to see the Christmas lights out at Shands road which are truly spectacular- if you haven't been you should! They are still open until the end of December- it truly is a winter wonderland and was the girls favourite by miles! Here are some photos from when we went the first time- when it was light- the second time we went with the big 2 to see it all lit up- amazing!

There was an amazing amount of toys and inflatables to see - thats without showing you any of the lights! When it gets dark they have it timed to music and angels and trains and all sorts are on all teh rooves of the sheds and houses- amazing!
The girls other favourite was a friend of their dads- Lloyd at Protea Place in Wigram- his is not so much about the lights but all the wooden shapes he makes and paints and all the Christmas decorations he has inside his house- really great for kids - my favourite was the singing Christmas tree...
