Happy Holidays....


We've Been, We've Seen and We have caught up with family. It was fun but very rushed and we are now back and going thru the list in the countdown to Christmas.....

Only 2 more sleeps!!! Huge excitement in this house :-)

Here are some of the highlights of the holiday....






The Oprah House????






Rock pools are the best, we don't get those in Cairns....





Cullen letting me know he is being good or as he puts it God , reading and writing big time now. He wrote 'I am god today' :-)





Can you see Ethan in his camouflage gear?? Look at the huge King Parrot in the tree above him!






What a fantastic view! The Three Sisters, Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW. It is amazing every time I see it!




Christmas shopping at Bondi Junction.....was I insane???





Mums old rollerblades, and yes I had a go! My balance has gone a bit in the last 13 years, goodness I used to ride these to work and back when I lived in Canberra. (13kms each way) I was lucky to make it along the esplanade without a mishap this time! Impressed the boys though, they thought I was too old for that stuff :-)




Cullen bought himself a rip-stick for Christmas and got lots of practice in on the Sydney streets. I have to take him to town for a go up here as we live on a dirt road....




Worn out from the sun and surf, nothing an icecream didn't fix on the way back to Grandma's....







We were big enough to swim in the surf this year and ride the boogie board, huge excitement!!





I was there but I only swam once, It was FREEZING for us North Queenslanders!

How are your xmas plans going? We had 3 inches of rain last night and the creek almost went over the bridge which is the only access in for us so I did my shopping today and we are hoping it doesn't keep raining or the family will be unable to get to our house for lunch! Hope Billy is hungry!

I snuck in a little yarn bombing yesterday as well, will post photos tomorrow :-)

It's good to be back!

  3. What a fun trip!

    Two days ago we got dumped on with snow and then..... it's been raining and the snow is leaving us and I'm afraid we'll have a mud Christmas..... boo!

    I saw the ornament you made Kristen. Soooo cute! You are such a sweetheart. You made her day.

    I'm hoping to finally get all of our shopping done today. Talk about leaving it all till the last minute! Not typical for me but this year hasn't been typical so why should it end typical. :D

    Merry Christmas!!

  4. Very nice to have you back Jenni.
    It looks like you all had a great time on hols, and yay look at the blue sky and sunshine, would love some of that!
    Hope it's not too wet for you over the coming days, it's certainly been wet today here although nowhere near as bad as last week.

    Merry Christmas. xx

  5. Ramming in my reading before I slog through the mud to feed the beasts. Great shots of the trip. Lucky the best part of it - those smiles on your boys - come home with you whole and vibrant! Here's hoping there really IS no Noah in our future. And Welcome home - nothing like a bridge over the creek to make life interesting.
