Slow down Santa...Slow down

Does anyone else fell a little overwhelmed by how quickly Christmas is speeding towards us.
I am actually almost done with my gift shopping, my tree is all decorated & looking fabulous.
 I have all of my gift wrap & ribbons ready to go!
The christmas day celebrations will be at my brothers house, so minimum thought or effort is required by me for the day.

Are you hosting the festivities this year or do you get to put your feet up & enjoy someone elses hospitality?

Why do I feel like this little Santa in the above pic???

I feel life needs to slow down, just a tad!

The past month has brought about so much change in our lives, all positive but hectic all the same.
Seeing my older 2 children instantly transform into adults has thrown me a curveball I was expecting them to do this, one at a time, with 2 years between them.They both have full time jobs, dreamchild no1 has moved  out & is living 4 hours away at her fathers house. She is really happy &  earning great money& with  only  7 more days to wait to get the results from her higher school certificate exams, fingers crossed she gets the mark she needs to get into University.

These are pics from her Year 12 formal (Prom)

Time to cut the apron strings Trishy & accept these babies are grown ups!!!!

How about you, do you think 2011 could do with an extra few weeks or will you be glad to see the back of it & start fresh for 2012???
