What a great holiday!!!!!

Well it is nearly the end of the holidays and I have to say I have truly enjoyed these holidays. The no routine and the being able to sleep in till at least 8 am( that is until I hear screaming or something making a huge thud on the ground upstairs.)

The best part was the surprise visit from my family in Melbourne I so miss them and the kids grow up so fast.

Even though the weather was terrible and they 8 kids had to stay inside for most of the time they were here, they still enjoyed themselves.

The unfortunate part is that I forgot to take photos of the kids together while they were here to post on my blog I did take a video of the fun in the pool so they may have to do.

My brother had to try get three children on his shoulders so our poor 11 yr old had to try lift them all onto his shoulders lol.

This is the first try.

The laughing is myself and my sister in law Oh my goodness I had such sore cheeks from laughing so much.

Then they tried again. Our four year old is an adrenalin junkie as you can see!!!!

Ok we have mastered the three lets try four????

Um nope that doesnt work raflmao!!!!!! What a great afternoon we had.

Our Baby is Four

Wow I cannot believe how time is flying.

It was our little girls fourth birthday yesterday and what a great day it was. We had a pool party and the weather was HOT!!!!The water temperature was 29 degrees.

I must admit that being flat out busy organising things yesterday morning by the time the kids got into the pool and asking my 13 yr old nephew to put sunscreen on the little ones that some of them did get forgotten and ended up with sun burnt faces but hey! they had a great day.

On another note my sil rang yesterday evening and spoke to the birthday girl and suggested that they should come up for a short holiday seeing as my brother has to work in Sydney for a few days, I said that would be a great idea and guess what ?............................. they are coming in two more sleeps WOO HOO. I think I am more excited than the children. I miss my neice and nephew terribly. I miss their parents too but the little ones grow up far too quickly and I never really knew my aunts and uncles and I dont want that to happen to my neice and nephew.
I cant wait!

Well another year over

Well another year is over but a new one beginning.

We have had a great year and cannot believe it has flown by. I am extremely grateful for my family and for the support we have had throughout the year with our wedding and honeymoon and for having a fantastic sil that I can talk to anytime I have something to whine about or to just see what she is doing.

I am pleased to have made new contacts globally through the fabulous world of Blog and enjoy seeing how the other side of the globe lives lol.

We went to Tuncurry and watched the fireworks which were fantastic but it did get a bit chilly there (not as cool as the year before though) and we ended up with jumpers and long pants on but other than that the kids all made it too 9:30 which was when the fireworks were on and then we headed home to bed lol.

I have posted a few photos of Christmas for you all to enjoy.

Happy New Year to you all and hope you have a great 2008.

I am trying to load some picture through picture trail but it doesn't want to work for me I my just have to put a couple up here for you all to see
