The night before Christmas the kids went to bed without a fuss ,, but afterwards we heard Bianca crying so Joe went upstairs to settle her down,, she said she was afraid because Santa's reindeers might make a noise and go in her bedroom window .... Well,,Joe has to tell her that Santa will just stop on the next door neighbors place and will just walk towards our place to drop the gifts off.. So she was quite relieved to hear that..
These were our Gifts to Bianca .... Just like Braiden she also received a Nintendo DS , but what she likes to play with is her remote control Little Pony ....
Check out the TOY HUNT site to see some more TOYS and what toy/s did Braiden receive.............

Like all countries in the southern hemisphere (the hemisphere south of the Equator), Australia's seasons follow the sequence:
Summer: December to February
Autumn: March to May
Winter: June to August
Spring: September to November
This means that the Australian Christmas takes place at the height of summer. It also means that the mid-year break for students happens in winter. The end of year break for students is commonly known as the 'summer holidays', or the 'Christmas holidays'.
Even though the four 'official' calendar seasons have the same names as the northern hemisphere seasons, the weather during these seasons is very different to northern hemisphere weather patterns. Australia is generally a very dry place, so summers can get much hotter. The pattern of rainfall is also distinct - some places have abundant rain at one time of the year and almost none at other times.
The wet season lasts about six months in summer and spring, between December and March. It is hotter than the dry season, with temperatures between 30 and 50 degrees Celsius. This is because of the high humidity during the wet, which is caused by large amounts of water in the air. During the wet there is a lot of rain, which frequently causes flooding.

Yes... The season of get together is on... Where we can have party at home,, A simple barbecue outside during a Warm Summer day here in Australia ..
A party calls for four checklists:
1. A detailed menu listing al the food and drinks plus all the ingredients – accompaniments such as dipping sauces appetisers and breads or other items to go with dips, garnishes and ice and other slices or other items to go into drinks.
2. Preparation and assembly time. Go back over the first time and note what you need in the way of bench space for putting final touches on the food and for filling serving platters. How much time in the oven and/or space in the fridge and freezer will each item on the menu need? Make a list of the best order in which to serve them so you won’t have to heat several things in the oven, or grill or fry them at the same time. make a big copy of this "running list" to be taped up in the kitchen on the day of the party, so that both you and any helpers will know what to do next. Decide where you will have that bar, whether behind the scenes or in the party space, and consider how to organise it.
3. An equipment checklist. What you need to hire or borrow, from extra cutlery to a marquee plus fans to cool it or heaters to warm it. shop around before hiring; the variations in prices can be quite amazing. Here is alist to help you – photocopy it, then insert you own numbers, change it as you need.
Serving platter, bowls, baskets and trays
Bowls for toothpicks, olive stones, etc.
Airtight food storage containers
Cups and saucers
Tea – and coffee – making equipment and serving pots, jugs and sugar bowls
Bar equipment and ice supply
Napkins – allow three times the number of guests
Extra appliances such as hotplates and warmers
Insulated boxes plus cold bricks to supplement the fridge in keeping food cold
Flowers or decorations
Hand towels and toilet paper for the bathrooms
Fans or heaters
4. A plan of action or "running list", should be started weeks before a big party and at least one week before a small one. It should list everything you have to do from inviting the guests to hiring equipment, shopping, cooking, setting up the bar, decorating and organising the party space, and last-minute chores on the day such as doing the flowers or collecting ice. Put the tasks in order and assign each one to a day, counting down to the day of the party. If it all looks too much, this is the time to consider it calmly and cut it down, simplify or delegate to reliable helpers until it is manageable.
Last but not the leasst enjoy the party ,, dont worry about the calories ,, you can take diet pill after the season....
Santa with BIG Hat and when you press his hat it will move up and down, while in the tune Santa Claus song..
Come and join us in TOY HUNT and win a TOY giveaway Bratz see the it here TOY HUNT Christmas
What a sad planned Proposal ,,,, It was such a traumatic experience,, As I was reading this I cant help but feel for the guy .. I feel really sad for him and the girls family... I know that this is the big news in Pinas, juts a tragic love story ...
A woman has been swept out to sea in the US moments before her boyfriend planned to propose.
22-year-old Leafil Alforque is still missing.
Napper and Alforque had been dating since they met on the Internet in 2005.
But Alforque had arrived in Oregon on a visa from the Philippines just three days before the fateful trip to the coast, The Oregonian reported.
Napper said the tide had receded around Proposal Rock on Saturday when the couple began to walk to it. He planned to propose and give her the ring he carried in his pocket.
About three metres from the rock, a wave about a metre high suddenly came toward them.
"I turned into it to keep from getting pulled under it," Napper said.
By the time he turned to find Alforque, only 1.2-metres tall and 42 kilograms, she had been caught by the receding waters.
"She was about 30 feet (9 metres) away, getting swept away," Napper said.
The 45-year-old tore off his jacket to get rid of any extra weight, and when he looked up again she was gone.
"That's the last I saw of her," he said in an interview on Wednesday, breaking into tears.
Emergency personnel called by someone on the beach arrived within minutes. Napper's phone no longer worked after being exposed to the water.
Along with rescuers, he searched for any sign of Alforque.
"I yelled for her," he said. "I was praying to God."
At one point, he saw someone wearing red - the colour of her jacket - on the shore signalling for him. But he quickly realised it was a rescuer.
Thick fog and dangerous water conditions hampered the rescue efforts before the search was suspended on Monday.
Her 25-year-old sister, Nova Alforque, said the family hopes the body can be recovered.
"My mother is always crying, day and night," Nova Alforque said by telephone from the Philippines.
"She wants my sister back. Even if she is dead, she wants her body to bury."
