Dear friends from near and far!
Christmas time is here, and in the land of OZ the weather is warm no matter how grey it can get these days. I love summer, and Australia [And Australians] but I find Christmas in this heat, in shorts and thongs, to be a little bit strange still... it's the polar opposite to what I am used to... But it has it's very own charm as well. Pool parties and BBQ's, who doesn't love that? The kids have the best time! 
Mr C just got really good at swimming ~ self-taught [of course], and Miss W is getting brave in the water too! It's so much fun to see them challenge themselves and get better at things they try hard at. 
Both the kids have pushed their limits in different ways this year and though the climbing is at the centre of their personal growth, there has been a lot of growing up as well. Mr C lost his first tooth and Miss W learned how to do everything really fast. Scooting, biking, skating, running... Keeping up with an active older brother, I guess its only natural.
She is also a little moody lately, and this day when we went out, Miss W was tired and a bit unhappy, as you can see in one of this pics, so Mr C did everything he could think of to cheer her up. He even picked a flower for her. Big brothers are amazing. So are little sisters... 
Sometimes, I like to keep things really simple, so this day we just went for a walk in our neighbourhood. We walked from our house, up the little hill, down a little hill and then there we were, at the lagoon, where we just played in the sand and waters edge for a little while before heading to the sushi place for a well earned lunch! It's so beautiful here, lots of little spots and gorgeous gardens and houses to capture... I love the older houses so much and love dreaming away, imagining buying one and doing it up... 

Both kids had gotten some new gear, and they were both super excited to test them out.
The jeans Mr C is wearing is actually the Ben joggers [trackpants] by the masters of denim: I dig denim. Miss W's  Lee jeans by I dig denim are the coolest jeans ever though! I love these boyfriend type pants on her!  I dig denim has the best quality denims for kids. There is no other jeans label that goes all the way like this kind brand. It is super love.

If you have been reading our blog for a while, you know we love MAA shoes. This gorgeous Spanish shoe company, where every shoe is handmade in their factory in Alicante. These shoes are made to last, super comfortable, durable, and so luxurious, the second you feel and smell this leather, you know they are amazing! I always say that these shoes smell like the old town of Rhodes/ Greece. The scent in the little backstreets in Rhodes smell of amazing leather from all the leather shops making and selling jackets and sandals.The kids picked out heir own shoes and both of them were really excited once they arrived. Miss W of course loves anything pink or purple, and the MAA OULU GRANADA shoes are a dream come through for her, and Mr C chose the HANKO LAVAGNA kicks in the softest leather you ever felt! So amazing!!

We have spent all our time with family and friends from near and far.
