Early Christmas

At least my reason for being busy this week is the activities of my own family!  Concerts, choir performances, dance rehearsals and shows and so on and so on!

So, as a brief macro post - I give you this:  an candle powered music machine!  The melody is a little repetitive, but it its rather seasonal!  And the snow on the tree is all I will see!



You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday 2 and I Heart Macro.

So are you saying that it doesn't snow in Australia? Really, even in the winter? How do you tell it is winter other than colder and drearyer (not sure that is a word :)

I love your music machine and only wish we could hear the music. Would also love to hear the Christmas Music you are hearing at your children's concerts and rehearsals. Christmas does become a wonderful family time ... so glad you are busy enjoying it.

Nice to see you have one too. I am rather more traditional with ours only lighting the candles one at a time for the four Sundays of Advent. Traditionally it is red candles for Advent and white candles on the Christmas tree. We also had sparklers on our tree, they were called wonder candles and still recall the thrill of seeing these sparkling stars reflected in the glass baubles.
Such happy times with your children involved in so many events. So much more important to enjoy them to the fullest, blogging will still be there after Christmas.

The candle chimes are cute, the angels are flying so fast I can't see them but that's usually the case with angels.;-) The little tree, teddy bear sleigh, and Santa are cute.

Wishing you a good time and maybe you will be able to see some snow! I know that in some areas you can even do some cross -country..even in Australia!
