:: family ~ new year ~ holidays ::

Home again. After 5 days surrounded by so much love & prettiness. Tasmania never changes; it's always a treat to see so much lush grass, brilliantly blue seas and especially the smiling faces of my dear family.

This time we didn't go camping or do any touring, but just talked, ate, walked, ate, relaxed, ate & dosed up on family lovin' big time. There was lots of patting-the-belly, and I'm pretty sure everyone got to feel bubba kick. It was special, and very exciting to think that next time we see them all.. there will be +1. Amazing.

So here is a glimpse into the trip. I didn't take as many pictures as I should have (as always). 
I miss these people ever so much.

{ looks on little faces when opening presents ~ so good }

{ sisters with new makeup sets ~ yes, one is a larikin }

{ sister love }

{ icecream cake by mother dear }

{ yummm }

{ the littlest guy stole my heart the entire time, he's grown so much and is just GORGEOUS }

{ playing pictionary.. with chocolate }

 { couldn't get enough of this little sunkissed face }

{ you couldn't tell he was sitting next to the cherry box }


And that's the end of all my sister-brother boasting. I hope your New Year has had a great start, and that 2013 has a lot of special things waiting for you. I hope it is a year where you will grow closer to those important to you, and grow closer to God your Saviour too. Relationships are some of the most important things that this life contains, and our relationship with our Maker is certainly not an exception.

Blessings to you all, thank you for your friendship & love! Lets do 2013 together :).
