This is quite an amazing event for our family. The prospect of a white Christmas at home is sending everyone into excitement overload - including myself and Mr Bee.
It has only been a few flakes, mind you, nothing like what they are getting in the UK but still it has made the build up to Christmas all the more exciting. Someone at school was telling me that the ground temperature need to get to 0*C before the snow will stick; come on you North Wind you little ripper!
I have just checked the current temperature in Brisbane, where we are originally from, and it is 25.2*C at 1.10am in the morning.
It snowed on me as I packed the groceries into the car at 11.47am and then it has snowed again just as we were leaving Crabby Jack's restaurant at 2.49pm.
I took the Bumble B'eers, together with a few friend's families from school, to a Crabby Jack's lunch to celebrate the end of the school term and to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
Maybe all our Christmas Cheer will make it snow tonight - fingers crossed!

The cards have been posted this week but I can not say when you will receive them. I just wanted to let you know that you were not forgotten; Guernsey Christmas Wishes are on their way Down Under.
You will receive one of the three Bumble B'eer designs sent with much love and wish we were there and miss you heaps and can't wait to see you all very soon!

So why were Mr Bee and myself receiving floral gifts from afar? Well of course it made perfect sense that our Best Man and Bridesmaid in Pink should remember that it was our 10 year Wedding Anniversary in a few days time and that I had forgotten! In my own defence I did remember that our anniversary was coming up and that indeed it was our ten year anniversary at that, but Mr Bee and I had agreed that we wouldn't exchange gifts or go out to dinner as next year was the 20 year anniversary of being together; we would save the celebrations for then.
You see I had made it very clear to Mr Bee when we got married that I was not starting back at 1; we had been together for 9 years when we got married and as we were married on the 'anniversary' of our starting to date I said that he could forget me going back to all that 'wood, paper, chainsaw, lemon meringue pie anniversaries' and bring on the 'ruby, sapphire, emerald, diamond, vintage car and overseas holiday' ones all the sooner.
I do not expect our anniversary to be a noteworthy event for other people, not even our own children; which is why today's delivery was such a lovely surprise.
Mr Bee and I will still wish each other a 'Happy Anniversary' and make a special meal to share, when all the Bumble Bee'rs are tucked up in bed, with a few glasses of bubbles to accompany it.

She was even kind enough to share them with her brother and sister; she was feeling in the Christmas spirit ;)

The Bumble Bee'rs want them worn at all times, sun, rain, hail, sleet and snow.
