Merry Christmas, Joyeaux Noel, Nollaig shona duit, Feliz Natal!!!!

Can you believe that another holiday season is here already?? For the last 5 years, we have had the same traditions, same people (no offense, dear relatives & friends!), same food, but this year we have suddenly become adventurous!!!! This year we decided to do something so unlike us, so CRAZY, so unthinkable! We took our 5 children zoo on an airplane, flew for hours and have been traveling New Zealand for almost 3 months. We celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving, and 4 of the kids’ birthdays while adventuring there, and now we are counting the days til Christmas while relaxing at the beach in Australia! We are in a tiny town on the coast in a tiny house walking distance (even for my newly walking 14 month old) to not only a lovely pool, but the clearest, bluest, loveliest sea you have ever seen!!! And all this splashing and swimming in a tropical heatwave while our friends write us with daily weather updates that include rain, 10 inches of snow, and hail!

Merry Christmas, mate, and to all, a good night!

Beco bodysurfing!!!

Beco bodysurfing!!!

As usual, my youngest is kept close thanks to my all time favorite baby carrier, the Beco Butterfly 2! THe ocean waves were warm and no babies were harmed during our photo shoot! Although my Beco did need to be hung to dry after all that surf!

Don't Miss a Thing!
