Christmas/New Year catch up

Happy New year one and all. Everyone is sick today....Bubba with temp and sooky, Chicken with high temps teething, and hubby feeling achy all over. Last night was a doozy. Anywho it is now nearly midnight and all is well, fingers crossed.

Where do I start...
Bubba & chicken were absolutely spoiled rotten over christmas. Mind you I didn't do too bad either. Must have been nice or something!!! Had such a great time with family (kids with their cousins) that we didn't want it too end. Have had so much rain though. Bit of a bummer. We are usually living in the pool at this time of the year! Too late it is back to the working world now.

Are currently in temporary digs till we get council approval to build. Have just spent the last week adding on a new room for the kids to dwell in so that the old room can be a spare room/play room.

This is Chicken giving Dad a helping hand!!

Bubba and chicken in their new beds. Tonight is the 3rd night with bubba and chicken together in the same room. Chicken has never slept in a normal bed before then and is taking to it like a duck to water. Am loving the extra room even if it is just to fit in the xmas gifts!! Have also gotten my family room back and kids have a place to set things like train sets up!!! Bubba is in heaven. The most notable difference though is that hubby and I dont share a room with anyone else now!!! Things are looking up.

Have been getting creative with the new room design. Bought them both a new bed with a trundle. Wonderful!!! Look great and are functional too. Am going to paint a feature wall in the aqua off the bedspreads. Shall post the creations when they happen.
Anywho I have finally managed to create something for Chicken to put on her bed. Very amateur I know but I gave it a bash. needlework is definately not my strong point.

Have also been cruising the blog world the last few days and love the stuff out there. There are some very funky and fun people. Check out the blogs on the side>>>.

Shall chat again soon with more bedroom photos.
