Congrats and cupcakes...

So HOW did it get to be the 17th of December already!! Eek!! I'm sooo not organised for christmas...... thankfully though, Greg is working 2.30-12.30 this week so I have a bit more time during the day to go and do the dreaded christmas shopping without the kids (well the boys at least)...

A few things to catch up on...

A HUGE congrats to Amy (my SOF buddy) and Michael on the early arrival of their beautiful daughter, Amalia.... it seems Amy liked my trick of delivering her own baby in the car, coz that's what she did too!! Good on you Amy, its a great experience wouldn't you say... I hope to meet the princess soon!!

Another CONGRATS to Cass (another SOF buddy!) and Dale on the arrival of their baby girl, Annabelle... great name too!! Can't wait to see some piccies of her!!
My sister has a week or so left till her bub is due... can't wait!!!

Yesterday afternoon, I had a lovely high-tea afternoon tea with my girlfriends from school, that I don't see nearly often enough, in fact, I'm not even sure I saw them at all this year, except for one.... oops, must change that for next year.... anyway, of course, I made cupcakes again, this time minis and I tried my hand at making christmas trees again, and this time they actually worked to my liking!! Yay... here's a piccie...

The food at the high-tea (yes all for 5 people, eek!)

ETA: the high-tea WASN'T at my house, so therefore it was not me who went to all the trouble to make this table all pretty... I just took my cupcakes along.... :)

And the 5 of us (gotta get our yearly group shot!) Two girls missing this year, Mel and Jo are overseas in the UK... here's Lou, Erinna, Katrina, myself and Jade.

Other news.... Mum and Dad returned from their cruise last week.... I think Mum is finding it hard to adjust to having to cook and clean again!! Jaidyn is having a few nights at Mum's this week, ahhh, love holidays..... now just have to entertain him when he gets back... I think a bit of christmas craft and cooking this week is on the agenda, maybe a play-date too.

Well, I'm frantically rushing around trying to get christmas presents sent off, cards sent off and the rest of the christmas shopping done. Thought I better do a quick update, but now I have to go and get my hubby out of bed and shower and go do some christmas shopping!!

Have a great day all xxx

Wow Nat - I am so impressed with your high tea - your table setting just looks gorgeous and I bet your friends felt so special that you had gone to so much trouble. Cupcakes look sensational - you defintately are the cupcake "Queen". You have so inspired me to make some too.
