Nesta gave Rob an Apron for Xmas...Yes you heard right,an apron.

Did we all ever see the day when Rob gets excited about something you use for cooking!!!!

But he LOVED it.

here he is using it to cook dinner last night.

Saying this though, Rob also got a Bunnings voucher (like B&Q) and a garden blower/Vacuum. He was also excited over this too!!!! Ha!

Christmas part 2......

We all hopped in the car at 11 on Xmas day and went to visit mum and dad. Craig also joined us.

Zoe, surprise,surprise got another haul of pressies from mum and dad. She got a bike, although Craig seemed to enjoy it more than Zoe!!!


Zoe also got clothes, a microscope and other little things. Craig brought her a newborn cabbage patch doll which she has called Charlotte.

Rob brought the Wii to mums and dads. everyone loved it. Mum says she now wants one for her birthday, but don't play against her...Mum is really competitive and beat everyone!
Zoe really loved the boxing game but gave up quickly as it was too tiring for her. I videoed her playing!

We then had dinner and all stayed over for boxing day.

My CRAZZZZZZY Cat!

I was at home yesterday and as i glanced out the window what should i see.........? Loki in the birdbath??!!!??? I know it was hot, but what was that cat thinking? Either Loki thought it was a good way to cool down (as the birdbath DID have water in it!) or he had some major wishful thinking that a Bird was going to mistake him for part of the birdbath and land on him!!

Who knows what that crazzzzy cat was thinking. I called him but he just lay there looking at me as if being in the birdbath was the most normal thing in the world! Weird Huh?

The Big Day out at Homebush.




Keeoi managed to get tickets to the Big Day Out for special needs children which is an annual thing. Zoe had never been before so was really excited.




We all went together;Zoe, Hamish,Bradley Keeoi and myself.




There were lots of rides, food and fruit for the kids, which Zoe got really excited about(there was watermelon!) a farmyard,police cars to look at and...... Santa came to visit.




Zoe got so excited because Santa had a real beard. 'Mum!' she said 'I cant believe it is the real Santa!' 'He has a real beard so it must be him!!!' It was so cute.




She was given a pressy and got to have her photo taken with him.




It was a great day.




Now only 1 more day of school for Zoe and the Holidays....Good?? or Bad??? we shall see!

Carols by Candlelight at Richmond PS.


Zoe's School at Richmond had Carols last night. Zoe was singing in several of the performances.
She sung beautifully!
Zoe was next to Ethan most of the time. She is really going to miss him. Ethan goes off to Main stream School next year.

All the parents got together we had a picnic and the kids played on the grass it was a really good evening.

Base School Christmas Concert.



We all traveled to the base school today for the big Christmas concert.
I took some pics of Zoe before the concert as she looked so grown up today with her braided.
Zoe wanted to have her pic taken in front of the tree.
She LOVE's the wall snowflake stickers her Uncle Craig gave her! They are from Bosco Bear...and they are removeable so we can use them every year!! How Cool!!!


Zoe was a turtle dove in the play. she has several lines to perform and had to read them herself. so that in itself was a big achievement for her to do.


All went well and she was beautiful as ever!!!! i braided her hair but they all wore their school hats! school policy!!!


Anyway, after the concert there was a surprise guest..... Santa came to visit! Zoe got to say hello to him and she got a show bag also. He was a very trendy Santa with sunglasses on!!!!

Some of Rob's work friends were also there, Zoe played with Bridgette, Lochlan and Calib. We all got a little burnt but had lots of fun.




Big kids...

I thought i might share with everyone rob and his mate Phil 'playing' at Phil's daughters(Bridgette) gym party. they thought they would both have a go on the rope. It was funny watching them both trying to get out of the foam!

See for yourself!
