Decking the Homestead

Here on the Homestead, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.


After today’s sojourn down the beachย  to the annual New Brighton Santa Parade


featuring our very own Farm Girl as part of the infamous New Brighton Brownie troop,

That’s her: Santa hat, all in blue, marching in front of her leader

it’s beginning to feel a lot like it, too.


Ho! Ho! Ho!


But before we sprint headlong into Yuletide


we have that last Homestead birthday of the year to celebrate.


Happy birthday and a hearty Ra Whanau ki a Koe to The Bean Counter, from all of us xxx

  1. Bonne Fete a toi…that’s one way of saying it in Canada :). You went down to the beach today (yesterday), I chose to take the bus to work rather than dig my car out of the snow on the driveway this morning. Chickens are the new black – lol – I need a shirt like that ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Happy Birthday to you! Felicitations from the Cashmere Crew. Loving the various versions of festive attire.
    Ooh see what I did there – alliteration.

  3. Hi, Thumbs up to the ‘Chickens are the new black’ Tshirt. I hope you continue to enjoy wearing bizarre festive season head wear (Are they ears stuck on the sides of the Renovator’s hat?) up to and including The Big Day. Merry Christmas!

  4. Wishing the Bean Counter a very happy birthday. Hope you had a great day with the family and imagine that there was a coffee spot included in the festivities. xx

  5. Happy Birthday Bean Counter! I love all your festive headgear. We have had gloomy damp weather for a few days now and am sick of it already. I could do with a little NZ sunshine and warmth if you have any to spare!
