Traditions…. LPS December Challenge!!!!!!!!!

This month over at Life Paper Scrapbook our challenge is to create a Project Life page including TRADITIONS we have in our lives.  I love traditions.. they always bring back beautiful memories and I always look forward to the next one.
We have a few in our lives but I have narrowed it down to a few I have shared with you today.

Yummmmo…  this is our yummy banana cake that has been our favourite recipe in our family for years.. My Nana and then Mum made it for years… It is out of our New Zealand Edmonds Cook Book.  This is the book we used to cook out of at cooking classes at school.  The kids are still using this book at school in 2013.  It is moist, tasty and I make lemon and orange rind icing for the top.

My title… It's so good to scrap out of your weekly square…. makes you scrap other important things in life.

I love love love the times when we go back to New Zealand. This is at a place called Mt Maunganui.  We spend every summer as kids here for 15 years in the same caravan park in our caravan.  When we go back home (Mum still lives only 30 min away from here) we alway go to the Mount and have fish and chips and the whopping generous New Zealand Ice creams on my favourite beach.  Double ice creams are only about $2 and you get the most awesome NZ flavours.  NZ beats anywhere in the world with our ice cream flavours.  We always have this occasion with my cousins and nephews and nieces.  This to me is priceless.

 Every NYE we hit the beach and get out and enjoy the freedom we have in Australia.. My hubby is a Life Saver so we all love the beach.  It is normally packed with families playing with their new water toys and just chillaxing after a hectic wind up to Christmas Day.  I love it here.. Never ever want to leave.

Our gorgeous son Corey is very passionate about being part of the Anzac March Parade each year.  We take him to Buderim and he is the most proudest at this moment.  He truly has a deep heart this kid. Age 10

 I hope you can read my journalling… He is a passionate dedicated rock my husband.. Love him to bits.
