Greg suggested that he might like to tidy his room and Connor's comeback was 'That's not in the Christmas Spirit Daddy!'..lol.. I have to say I agreed with him.. lol.. Greg went out the front and our lawn was covered in wallabies.. so he decided to take some pics. The poor things have been soo hungry that they have been all over our street looking for food..
The following Tuesday I went along to Kindy to help the kids make some reindeer biccies.. I was watching Declan in the garden when he spotted a lizard.. he crept up on it and I have never seen a kid move so fast.. he actually caught it! He is definately our little Declan Attenborough!
And this is the gorgeous plate my Secret Santa sent me.. I just love it.. I mean how gorgeous is that..!!! Plus I got a Scrapping Frame.. so will have to get scrapping to put something in it!
If you are reading this Santa.. Thank you soo much.. it made my day..So glad I waited till Christmas morning to open it!
And I did this one up for Mrs Gorman, Connor's Teacher..

It was hard enough leaving Highfields and our friends behind but now knowing that Tom isn't there to visit is just heartbeaking..
We will miss him so much.. miss the opportunities to have more fun, I will miss our debates.. His smile, his friendship. I didn't get to say goodbye so this is my little way of saying
'goodbye Tom.. we love you and will miss you so much'

But we have enough animals around here without any more..lol.. including this gorgeous Wallaby and her Joey that was snacking on our front lawn a few afternoons in a row.. Just goes to show how dry it is around here. Couldn't resist the pics.
That weekend we had Greg's Christmas party at 1770. I was so looking forward to a weekend away as Greg has been away with quite a bit lately. But things didn't quite turn out as we expected. We got there friday night and I ended with gastro and spent all day Sat in bed.. Managed to take a few pics of the boys from my balcony but that was it. The we got a call from friends of ours letting us know that Tom.. a really good friend of ours in Highfields.. was finally succumbing to cancer. So Greg jumped in the car and drove to see him. I stayed behind with the kids and was so grateful to Vanessa, one of the girls Greg works with, for all her with with the boys on Sat night and Sunday.. then we got a lift home with George.. another workmate. Luckily the boys were fairly well behaved so he was still sane when we got here.. I think..lol.
Greg got home Sunday arvo just in time to come to Declan's Kindy Christmas party. So it really wasn't the best weekend.
And can you believe I forgot to take my camera to the Kindy Party..
Anyway it is late.. so I will leave it at that..will update more soon.. Hope you are all well..
