Happy new year

We have had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.  It was wonderful celebrating the birth of our saviour and spending time with my family.  I love giving gifts and seeing the light shine in my children's eyes when they see all the gifts Santa left under the tree. ( We still have the theory in our house that if you don't believe you don't receive) 

The younger kids really loved their amp and mike set. ( the older sister aren't really sharing their enthusiasm-think we will rock you at 7am on holiday :)  My eldest daughter loves her new luggage.  She is waiting to find out her assignment for her mission for our church so the luggage will come in handy.  My second daughter is desperately waiting to try out her new (secondhand) sewing machine.  She is working such long hours that it is just sitting there waiting to be used.  But once she hits university again I bet it will get a lot of use.

I feel truly blessed to have such a beautiful family and a wonderful life.  

My big news today is that we are on the move.  In 3 1/2 weeks we are moving 1 and 1/2 hours further south.  The house is in between Pirongia and Te Awamutu.  2 small towns under Hamilton.  We have bought an old farmhouse on just over 1 acre of land.  (I will post some pictures when blog spot allows me to post a picture)   We are all really excited but as you can imagine I still have alot to do before we move.  The property has a wonderful garage which I am going to have converted into a art studio.  It will be lovely to have my own space outside of the house.  I have some wonderful plans for it.  I will let you know of our progress over the next few months.


  1. All the best with your move and keep in touch. I hope you get broadband sorted soon.

  2. Thanks Rona. I hope we get it sorted too:)

  3. Can't wait to hear more about the move! I'm glad you all had a lovely Christmas. :)


I love hearing from you. Leave me a message :)
