I thought I would take 5 mins to put up the photos of the boys Stockings.. I am so glad they are all done now. I love them but boy were they hard work.. But I am pleased I managed to get them all done for them before they each had their second Xmas.. Didn't think I would make it with Brodie's but got there just in time.. Brodie 2007
Declan 2005

Connor 2003

We all got very spoilt here over Xmas.. the boys were impressed cause Santa left them what they had asked for.. Luckily they have only small requests at this point. God help Santa in a few years! I was very spoilt and got a digital photo frame.. It will be good to actually see some of the thousands I take.. now to just find the time to pick through them and decide what to put on there! Connor also picked out a little teapot for me so I can have a 'real' tea in the morning which was really sweet. Greg got the new Die Hard Quadrology among other things so he was happy. We hope you were all spoilt as well and had a wonderful day!

Merry Christmas

Well it has certainly been one of those weeks.. We have had some great things happen and some not so great things and of course it all happened at once and the week before Christmas.. The best part of this week was all our visitors.. We had a girlfriend of mine come up from Highfields to visit with her 2 boys and it was absolutely fantastic to see them.. We also had Mum stop in on her way to Mackay.. Unfortunately my Uncle had passed away last week and Mum was heading through for the funeral. Because of everything else going on I couldn't get up as well but I was thinking of you all..

I then got a phone call on Wed arvo to say that the painters, that we had been waiting for since Sept, were finally coming.. On Thursday!! So I of course went into panic mode! Luckily they were only doing all the architraves and feature walls but they also had to do my whole craft/office room which was in a royal mess! ands still is!! We had our Playgroup Xmas party on Thurs morning as well so it was one hell of a day The boys made some gorgeous reindeer biccies I got off the Boxx and everyone loved them.. Even if they did look like they had been hit by a semi a few

Everyone was gone on Friday so I spent the day cleaning and trying to make the house look normal again .. and gee what a difference getting rid of the horrible colours make.. Will put up before and after photos another day when I have more time.. But we had 2 lots of visitors passing through yesterday and a party last night to go to. Today was supposed to be day for Greg to get into the fencing but I ended up with some sort of stomach bug so have spent most of the day doing nothing.. and no I was not Visitors tonight and tomorrow I will need to get stuck in and get ready for Christmas.. The plan is to have as little as possible to do on Xmas day. Whew no wonder I am tired!! and I have to say sorry to all those I have not had a chance to chat to this week. Now maybe you will understand and forgive me.

But I just wanted to say a Huge Merry Christmas from all of us here to all of you out there and I hope the day is fun and relaxing and full of joy.. Will see you in 2008 if not before!

Trip to Brissie

Well we had a great time away last weekend in Brissie.. We flew down to Brissie on Wed and the boys went off with Marnie to Caloundra for four days. Meanwhile Greg and I stayed in Brissie for a couple of days then went up to Noosa for his Work Christmas party..

It was wonderful.. I managed to get a lot of Brodie's stocking done in peace and quiet.. Shopped from 9 until 6.30 with two of my wonderful friends from Highfields and went out and ate lots of wonderful meals at night. I had a ball.. Mind you I think I came home even more tired than I normally am.. lol. The boys has a great time at the beach and loved seeing Marnie (Greg's Mum), Auntie Tania and Cousin Katie.. Plus my Mum picked us up and spent a couple of hours with the boys before dropping us off at the airport. Climbing up into the fort at the park and proceeding to slide down the slide with Declan.. lol. They love the fact that she does all that kind of stuff with them.

The boys absolutely loved it .. and to top it all off it was the big boys first flight on a plane as well ... I got into a little trouble for taking pictures on the tarmac but gee I loved the photos!

Well the tree and lights are all up now and I think I have finally got all my cards and letters ready to send out.. Now just to finish the cooking and organising and maybe I can stop panicking.. As soon as I finish that Stocking!! Anyway it is late and I am stuffed so catch you all next time! Maybe I might even have scrappin to show you.. Well a girl can dream..sigh!
