Not last Christmas, but the Christmas before….
I just can’t believe the changes that Alex has gone through in this time. He was a chubby little crawler back then, and now he is a hypersonic little lad who is into everything! I guess as an adult there aren’t many changes over 3 Christmases – but for a little lad in his early years the changes are amazing.

Next year is going to be amazing! He’s really getting into the idea that Christmas is a celebration and special – so next year I think he’ll start getting much more excited before the 25th arrives!
Cancelled is like saying “Failed” – and as many of the blog readers know, I’m not a fan of failure. Failure only happens when you stop trying to succeed. Sure you might be failing at something – but you only really fail when you give up.
As such I am retracting my “Christmas is Cancelled” statement, and instead I am going with “Christmas is postponed”.
This troubled time is one of the lowest we’ve had as a family. Things are being put in place to ensure things don’t go so bad if the muck hits the fan ever again, but that’s for the future. For the moment we are scratching from day to day to try and get by. It’s “simply” a case of hanging on in there for a while until we sort things out – and not getting dragged down by the whole mess.
So… Christmas isn’t cancelled – it is just being “put back” – so expect some out of season greatings from us in the future!
YUP!!!! ALEX IS TWO!!!!
Another gift was a trip to Horton Park – the petting zoo with adventure playgrounds that Alex really enjoyed last year. Now he is older he had so much more fun!!!
