And I'm still catching up on Christmas posts.

This year was a Christmas at Copacabana year. Complete with Santa on a fire engine.

Santa and his RFS helpers drove around the streets of Copacabana, Christmas music blaring, scattering lollies for children who wait by the roadside. The kids loved it (although this uptight mumma with a sleeping baby thought they could have done a few less circuits. Isn't it funny how I expect the whole world to be quiet so my baby can nap.)

This year we left home made biscuits out for Santa (which was an improvement on the tiny teddies of the last Copa Christmas). Leo decided that milk is the drink of choice for reindeers so they got an enormous bowl filled with milk and some carrots.

We had our traditional ham orientated Christmas Eve dinner. We had the tastiest Christmas ham this year. It was 8kg, heavier than both Audrey and Evie. Richie made some awesome toasties for dinner.

So I've gone a bit crazy and decided to attempt Project 365 this year. Except this year is a leap year so technically it's Project 366. The idea is that you take a photo everyday for a year. I'm not going to take it too seriously. I'm just going to take photos on my iPhone. Every now and again I'll post them on FuShMuSh. I think it will be a nice chronicle of the year.

Project 366 - 01
  1. Day001: Perfect at Copacabana Beach
  2. Day002: Evie going for a swim
  3. Day003: Locked out

So 2011 is officially a good year. We got our happy ending - our beautiful daughter Evie. I thought I'd put together a little photo mosaic from all our FuShMuSh posts this year. As you can see Evie features quite heavily. Aw, she's so beautiful (and clever...)

This is my favourite Christmas present this year. I received this family necklace as my present from Evie. (She's not quite up to online shopping so she may have had some help from Mummy and Daddy). I think it's sweet without being overly cheesy.

It was bought from Eclectic Wendy Designs on Etsy. I was impressed with her service as Evie ordered it after the cut off date for Christmas and it still arrived in time.
