Last Tuesday was Noel's birthday (I know. I'm a bit late posting about it!). We had a quiet night. I cooked one of Noel's favourite meals, meat loaf with roast vegies. Then we had some white chocolate and raspberry butter cake. Yum!
We've started the Christmas decorating. We got another live Christmas tree this year. Nelson and Noel chose this huge one. It just about reaches to the top of the cathedral ceiling! The smell is devine. The main thing left to do now is to put up all the outside lights. I thought I'd show you some of our special decorations.
We bought this tea light holder when Noel and I went to Queensland earlier in the year.
I bought this church tea light holder last Christmas. The little Christmas tree is the one I won on Leonie's Kiwi at Heart blog.Here's my Three Santas. Oops, looks like a couple of bells have fallen off! I'd better try to find them.
Here are some of my Christmas hangers. I've started another one but it won't be ready until next Christmas!
With all the rain we've been having, the vegies are growing well. We've been getting lots of zucchini and lettuce. The tomato plants are getting taller and starting to flower. I've recently planted some silverbeet too.
The lettuces are getting taller too. I just pick leaves from the outside as we need them. Nelson's bean plant (next to the red pole) is growing and some beans are coming.
