On Saturday morning, we headed off to Highpoint Shopping Centre to go to the Toys ‘R’ Us Christmas Lego event. The boys got to make a Lego fireplace and Santa in front of it, they got to take it home too.
The boys deep in thought making their Lego creations:
With 40% off decorations, I ended up at Target
and bought these (I’m not sure how the Angry Bird decorations ended up in there!):
I did however want to bring home the giant Lindt Bunny (NOM):
On the way home, we thought we would drop into Williamstown and have chips by the beach, go to Brown Sugar
(I received 40% off with my scratch card
! I will post what I bought shortly) and The Cupcake Queens
(if you are in Melbourne and haven’t tried their cupcakes yet, DO SO! They are the best cupcakes I have ever tasted and they have four stores around Melbourne). While we were at Highpoint, Mr 8 saw a cupcake store and exclaimed “Mum, there is a cupcake store over there. I bet they aren’t as yummy as The Cupcake Queens cupcakes!”. He is right, they probably aren’t 😉
Chips at the Williamstown beach (photobombed by an elderly couple):
So home we go and we start to decorate the tree, well when I say ‘we’ I meant ME… somehow I got left to decorate the tree and house. The boys got bored with decorating the tree and went off to play the PS3. Pfft…..boys!
But I did have some help, Max (our Shipoo puppy) thought he would help Mum with the tinsel and decorations:
Here is our finished tree:
And the decorated side board:
