Maxabella Loves for hosting {grateful saturday}
you make me stop and appreciate all those little and not so little things that make me smile, that make me feel warm inside and that i am truly blessed with each and every week.. thank you!!

now onto our weekend.. 

All systems go around our place over the weekend with the lead up to christmas.. We had a fab weekend!! We got a lot achieved, the house got blitzed and everything is in its spot and everything we no longer need is out of the house.. woo hoo!! We snuck in a  dinner over at a friends place, we snuck in a trip to the brewery lights again and we hung out on Sunday getting the house ship shape..

I have been meaning to do this for a while and the time seemed right this weekend. I sat down with Ella and explained to her that although we don't have a lot of money and we can't buy everything we want, we are very very lucky to have all the things we do. I explained to her that there are kids out there that miss out on a lot of things, don't have a lot of toys etc.. It was a simple explanation as I wanted her to just start getting the concept of it all and she did.. We cleaned out both the kids rooms and got a big bag for all the toys they no longer use.

I am going to go through it today and pick out the toys in really good shape and donate them to our local Salvation Army and the slightly run down stuff goes to the kids child care centre so they can get a little bit of joy out of the toys before they hit the trash..

Here are a few snaps from our weekend.. hope you had a great one too!!

here are a few pics by ella.. omg.. i so love these pics!!
