catherinecbrown Merry Christmas from our little family to yours. Praying for tidings of comfort and joy for you all as we remember the birth of Jesus.

So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God. Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3‬:‭12-13‬

catherinecbrown This boy is everything

Nothing could prepare me for the heart explosion of meeting my squishy littlest love. A happier and more beautiful soul I have not met. You are perfect compliment to your brother and complete our family.

catherinecbrown This boy lights up my world.

He's a bundle of energy, he plays hard and loves big. He amazes and frustrates me all while grinning so wide he might make my heart burst. You changed my life and made me a mother. Your mother. I could not have asked for anything more.
You aren't always perfect but to me you are perfection.

catherinecbrown After Will was born and we had newborn photos with the stunning and talented @alirussellphotography I realised just how precious this time and these memories are.
It struck me how little I am in photos (I'm usually the one taking them) and so made the decision that once a year we would get professional photos taken. l just love love love my boys and am so grateful to Madelyn Holmes Photographics (wish she was on insta to credit her!) for capturing my beautiful family. Completely worth every penny!

catherinecbrown A big thank you to all the teachers out there who put in more hours than can be counted, who work tirelessly to ensure our children receive a quality education, who are pinning new ideas to try, trying different methods to make learning fun, who pick our children up when they fall, they love, encourage and champion our children while we are not there. For everything you do, thank you is not enough.

Two exceptionally hard working teachers I have the pleasure of knowing @bigfatrhona @taraa_jane_ this is for you xx

catherinecbrown Usually I look forward to December however this month has been full of challenges. Tomorrow le Husband is having his nasal passage straightened, sinuses bored out & tonsils taken. He will be out of action & miserable for next two weeks and, honestly, I was ready to pull up my big girl pants and tough it out. Then in the sweetest gesture my amazing and wonderful friend @rebygirl has organized a week of meals for us. I'm honestly so moved, grateful and blessed by your generosity and friendship @rebygirl @tifanie_samala @beckp1987 Katie, Avril and Carol. Thank you all so very much from this tired mumma! 2w

catherinecbrown How gorgeous are these swings by @solvejswings? W recently discovered swings and LOVES them. Best thing about these swings is they hold a child up to 40kgs -that's lots of swinging to be had!) You could win $80 off your purchase by sharing one of their sweet images and tagging @solvejswings #solvejswings 3w
  •   alfiewildloves Gorgeous! We love these swings. Charlie got one for his 1st birthday and still loves it 3w
  •   catherinecbrown I'm so keen @alfiewildloves!! Husband isn't a fan of the price ... 3w
  •   alfiewildloves Mine wasn't either! I cajoled my sister into it from afar It has been worth it though and still looks beautiful 2 years later. Plus he can get in and out himself now 3w
  •   catherinecbrown Ze men, they never understand! $80 off goes a long way + both boys can use it. I think it would be a win win @alfiewildloves 3w

catherinecbrown Oliver Hamish // 6 Months

2 weeks late Where has the time gone! better late than never right?

All through my pregnancy with Ollie I have known God would give us the right person for our little family. Sometimes it's hard to believe how happy this ray of sunshine is. So laid back and full of smiles, he's the apple of his brothers eye and in true Brown form loves his food. While some days I eat Nutella off a spoon for dinner because I'm too tired to do anything else, you are totally worth it. Always.

catherinecbrown My husband is kind of amazing. After discussing the impossibility of a Christmas tree with a bauble loving 2.5 year old he suggested a pallet tree. And then he made one. He's the best.
Also how freaking cute are the teeny tiny honeycomb balls from @poppiesforgrace!?

catherinecbrown Wrapping done!

I wanted to make an advent calender for Will this year but didn't want to involve food (he gets spoilt enough due to his parents sweet tooth - I'm looking at you @mantastique) In my Pinterest travels I came across the idea of wrapping up books and opening one each evening. W loves books so this is perfect for him (as long as said books have lots of pictures). I may have had more fun wrapping them than he will reading them!

catherinecbrown Asked by the steller @rebygirl to share one from #thecuttingroomfloor

3 weeks ago we attended a fairy birthday party so we went as a Gnome family but forgot to get photos in our finery. I have attempted several times to snap the boys dressed up with no real luck. This one is pretty cute though.

I tag @frlschlauschlau and @cam_mc87 if they have time to share - no pressure!
