We've been in Melbourne for about a week... running all over town catching up with family and friends. It's been really good to see everyone again but today we're happy to just be hanging out in our apartment waiting for G's family's Christmas festivities tonight (G's family are Chilean so Christmas well and truely begins on Christmas Eve). In fact the kids have just been sitting down checking out the Christmas tree, as you do.
I'm hoping I can get both girls down for a sleep sometime this afternoon before their late night tonight. Both of them are a bit out of whack with all the new people, places and late bedtimes they've had all week.
Amongst it all we have had a chance to get into the city to check out the Christmas windows (which I had always been led to believe were better than the Brisbane ones, but they are exactly the same!) and the trees in Federation Square.
And we've been still getting through our Advent Calendar.

And snowy scenes (using these instructions from Cakies)
And I have a new favourite wrapped present, for kids. I love these Santa mailing labels from Babelisme.
Hope Santa visits you tonight and that you and your families have a wonderful Christmas together!
