Happy New Year, hope your 2010 is filled with all the things you could dream of.


Over the xmas break we headed to Goondiwindi to see Great Grandma who is 92 and still going strong. This is the first time that she has seen Jordyn and she was delighted to see us all. we had a photo or two taken with MIL camera as I forgot mine in the rush to leave. Will post a pic when I get one. Will we were there we went to see the new chipmunk movie, not bad some good funny bits.
Hope everyones Xmas was good and that Santa was nice to you. The girls were spoilt rotten as per usual, I recieved a new laptop from hubby and the girls, MIL got me a beautiful Venesian glass necklace all the way from Vienna when she was there earlier in the year as well as a new toweling robe and a dinner set (spoilt). My Brother and his wife gave us a HD set top box for our bedroom TV and a slushy machine (yum!!). Phil recieved a authentic swiss army knife that his Mum got him in Switzerland (spelling sorry). It took us 2 days to put all the toys together and clean up all the boxes etc. Glad its over for another year.

2 days to go, hope your all ready for Christmas. Phil and Tayla are going grocery shopping tomorrow (goodluck) to pick up a couple of things we need to take with us. We will do the Santa thing at home on Christmas morning then off to Phils sisters place to do the inlaw thing then at lunch time we will head over to my Mum and Dads to do the family thing, it will be a busy day but.... being with family is what Christmas is all about.
On Boxing Day I am hitting the sale with Phils Mum and sister, not that I have any money but there is always the credit card!!!!

Well I think I am all done on the christmas present front. Did the last dash today so I think thats it... Now the wrapping begins. This is the first year that I am not looking forward to the wrapping of presents, not sure why but I have been putting it off for a while now but best get my act together as I only have 10 days to go. Might have to have a go tonite after Miss T and Miss J go to bed. Wish me luck.

Tayla had her Kindy Christmas Party today so we made all the kids Magic Reindeer Food although I think most of the teachers stole (which is cool), also we made these clipboards for her room leader, assistant and the childcare Director.

Tayla had her end of year dance concerts on the weekend and she went beautifully. She remembered most of her steps and stayed on her feet the whole time. Phil presented her with a bunch of roses after the last concert and she was a little chuffed but very very tired. Had some professional photos taken on the night so will post them once I have got them.

On Sunday we decorated the Christmas tree and the house, Tayla decorated most of the tree by herself and would not let anyone else touch it. Jordyn loved the train... well probably more the box it came in but..... All in all it was a fun afternoon and it looks great.


Well my baby has gone and been replaced by a toddler..... ( I am sad) On monday the 23rd of Nov Jordyn started crawling and a week later she was pulling herself up on the couch and table and gotten another tooth. She has a couple of bruises already from crashing onto the timber floor but she will survive.
