"It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas"

I can't believe we are so close to Christmas.  I am going to do a post tomorrow for a Christmas Eve  post but I just wanted to say hello to everyone and I have been so busy and I am so sorry but I wish everyone a truly beautiful Christmas. 

This picture is from our front verandah when a storm was imminent.  We are currently experiencing extreme weather conditions and have had huge amounts of rain with terrible flooding.  It is expected that we will have a very wet, blustery Christmas Day which is very unusual for Queensland unless a traditional wet season is forecast.  Normally at this time of year we have 36 degree celius days so we can go swimming at night!  I am so sorry I have not posted for so long but I have been so busy.  I have more beautiful pictures to show you and I will but I just wanted to say ..... It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!   Soon the bells will chime....

Gorgeous Christmas tree in Queens Plaza shopping centre in Brisbane ... love the silver and blue!
