Happy Daze At The Beach House

As the days flash by in Christmas chaos, here's whats been happening out amongst it. 

Glad to see there was some style in the playground this week. The lovely band mums decorated the table beautifully at the Inaugural Band Breakfast Concert. These vases of white hydragea where placed at intervals amongst the hot coffee, yummy home baked muffins and fruit platters. Definitely made it worth the 7.15am start. For once Mr Beach House couldn't use work as an excuse to miss this one.  Even he doesn't go to work that early!!!!

I've taken a few fabulous walks this week. Hey I'll get to heaven anyway I can!!!!! Especially if it involves the ocean.

Or beautiful flowers when you look up into a magnificent Summer sky.

This yellow door did it for me as I walked by.

 And here are my three fav Christmas trees in the high street of my little seaside suburb,

Wood tied together with twine

A crazy palm frond

and shoes on a tree.

Some Christmas shopping in the local toy store.  The owner must have already met the Beach House Brats.

Intimate dining by candle light. We announced our engagement to our families in front of that fireplace all those years ago.

The true meaning of life and a fabulous little bookshop as well.

 Every suburb in Sydney seems to have one, a street where all the houses light up and the residents party on the street each night of the month of December, glass of wine in hand laughing and carrying on, secretly trying to out do each other.

Kids' heads popping out of sunroofs on same said street

Rudolf and friends

Chinese pyjamas

Cross cultural fusion.....French roll with chops sticks.

Shooting shiny boats for Mr Beach House's website

Wearing red dresses to see Santa

Waiting for him to deliver

Squealing with joy when he does.

Excitement at a first ever haircut.  It's only been three and a half years but I hate how the blondest bits at the end get cut off.

A blogger is a voyeur into her own life.  I would dearly love to be able to delve into the lives of my great grand relatives and check out the subtleties.  I wonder if my descendants will feel the same!!!!
Today I am partying here
