I'm glad that the boys look forward to Christmas still, as it helps me to get out and do things with them, to try to not let the sadness overwhelm me at this time of the year. The Christmas parade started it all off at the end of November.
We finally went out to look at the Christmas lights on Aaron's birthday. School didn't finish for me until the 22nd this year, so Christmas came up so quickly.
organised so many special things for us, through businesses when we went on a special holiday to Queensland. It made our holiday so special, and I'll never forget how much it helped us as it made us forget how hard things were, just for a little while.
The weather on Boxing Day was beautiful again, and I couldn't resist getting into the freezing water just for a quick dip.
While we were at the beach my cousin Ty sent me a text, asking if Harri wasn't to go and play basketball with him and some other guys that night. Harri always loves going out to my Mum's as my brother Eden and my cousins and friends who live there, get together regularly to play basketball together for fun. He was so excited, and met up with them at the school to play that night. Konnie's husband Colin and their son Josh also went. Harri was the youngest one there, but had a great time.
Ty is also hilarious, so Harri loves hanging with him. He wishes that he lives closer, so they can have more 'date nights'. It's so nice for the boys when they have older guys around, as they're always with their boring Mum.
