Ok.. so what has been happening up to today..I so cannot believe I am finally up to
Playgroup has been busy.. We are now up to about 60 odd members.. with new ones starting every week at the moment.. It is getting very hectic trying to keep up with it all. but we are getting
Zoe and the kids stayed over last weekend as Joe was away.. and we also had Annette's baby shower. I organised a few games for it.. Just a hint ladies.. If you have pregnant mum's coming to a baby shower.. It is not necessarily a good idea to do the melted choc in the nappy I made some of them feel rather nauseous.. pmsl..
Greg has been away a few nights over the last couple of weeks.. I hate it when he has to travel around for work. He is also studying and was very pleased with himself getting 83% on his first assignment.. His first exam is coming up next week so lets hope he does as well on that.
I do have a couple of lo's I have done this year to put up but I will do that soon.. Annette and Gil are due to arrive for a bbq so I had better get going.. Hope you are all having a great weekend..And thanks to the girls who have given me a blog award.. I am soo sorry I just haven't had time to do anything with them. I am very glad that not only do people actually read my ramblings but some of you even enjoy
Ok.. don't forget to leave me some blog love. I really enjoy hearing from you! Donna xx

The start of the School Year.

Well School has started and this year we have Connor in Grade 1 and Declan in Kindy 3 days a week. OOh

Connor is loving Grade 1.. His reading already is coming along fantastic.. and so far he hasn't been in

Of course if there is a camera around they all have to have a pic

Declan started on Wed 28th of Jan.. They had part of the class start on each day.. They have one day a week for 2 weeks and then they go to the full 3 days. He loved his first 2 days. And when I picked him up last week he excitedly told me that next week he is going 3 days a week.. and "Mummy .. I get Homework!" I hope he is still excited about that fact in 10 years time.. but somehow I don't think

And again all three in front of the Camera. Love Wednesdays.. NO

Brodie did 2 days a week at Daycare for a little while over the school holidays.. he has been moved up to the Purple room and he loves it. No more of the 'Mummy feel guilty tears' in the morning.. and now he asks nearly everyday if he can go to daycare. Unfortunately since the hols have finished they have not been able to fit him in for the 2 days but hopefully soon they will have a spot for him.

Australia Day

Well the Australia Day weekend was typical for up here.. spitting.. muggy and stinking hot.. but we had fun.. lol.. Marnie and Pa came up to stay for the weekend.. so the boys were very excited to see them.. On Saturday we had a relatively quiet day. I took Marnie Shopping and the boys had a great time playing with Pa.. Greg and Pa then took Brodie out in 'Daddy's Boat' to put in some crap pots.. He loves going in the boat.. and talks about it for days afterwards!
So on Sunday Morning Pa and Greg took Connor and Declan out to check the crab pots and do some fishing.. they got totally But the boys loved it..
Meanwhile Marnie and I took Brodie to a birthday party at the Botanical Gardens...

These special boys turned two! Aren't they gorgeous!
No fish was caught on the trip but they were very impressed in these crabs they managed to bring home..

The smaller one was 1.55 kg and the larger 2 kgs..

What whoppers! So it was Crab sangers or dinner that There was enough meat for everyone!

I couldn't resist taking this photo of Brodie that night..

They are soo cute when they are asleep aren't they! pmsl..

Meanwhile Greg had fun beating up his Mother on the He is going to get a reputation
On Monday we decided that it was too hot and muggy to go to Yeppoon so we had a barbie at home instead. Adrian and Rach and the kids came as well as Annette, Gil, Elaine and Mike..
It was lovely.. very relaxing.. Gil is a pommy so we decided to teach him a thing or two about being an aussie.. Greg grabbed out his stock Unfortunately I missed a pic but we were laughing so much as he managed to whip himself on the bum.. pmsl..nice friends aren't
Elaine than decided to show us how it was done..

As well as give us girls a few tips on how to keep our men under control.. I love this pic.. talk about pressing the button at just the right moment..!

We stuck an akubra on Gil's head.. but unfortunately he still looks like a pommy git..pmsl! Thanks for a great day guys!!
