Who knows what this is??

Just check out what arrived yesterday in the Jamieson household....a GIANT MUFFIN!!
The wine bottle is to you you an idea of the size of this thing...a whole 4kg!! Wowsers!!



No, just kidding...it's a Panettone. If you're not Italian you probably don't know what that is...like me!! (LOL) Thank god for Google!!

It's a Christmas tradition in Italy and a bread of Milan. And it's delicious!!
You can read more about it here.
We cut it open today and sampled some...Yum!! It smelt like fruit cake, which I'm not a big fan at all. But I was pleasantly surprised!

Jase's company deals with a big Italian company, which he has visited several times and they are just lovely. They sent this over for us for Christmas!
So, I've learnt something today!

I took the kids for their Santa photo today. All started well, but after being in line for over 90mins the patience was thinning. Ella was all psyched up to tell Santa all that she wanted, which she did, but pulled the pin when it came to sitting with him for the photo...NO WAY!! So, I'm in it, again!!

Late this afternoon we headed over to New Farm Park to snap some pics of the kids. Some in Christmas attire and some just everyday shots. It was fun, but we were all exhausted including me when we got home!
Here's a few favourites! (all unedited)








Do you think he'd had enough??


Then, you've got to love seeing this...on our way back to the car!


This time next week, the excitement will be in the air, on the big fella in red's arrival! Can you believe it??

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx
