Christmas 2007

Well we had a wonderful quiet family Christmas this year. It was relaxed and fun and the kids were great. They were all thrilled with what they received and we barely heard a peep from them all day. Here a few pics from our morning.

Fresh from my garden. Sweet and juicy! Picking and shelling the peas took me right back to my childhood.. helping dad pick the peas, sitting at the table with my mum and shelling the peas into a bowl...well, her putting them in the bowl.. me eating

Higher and higher

Jamie competed in an interclub competition a couple of weekends ago and did well getting 1st and 3rd in his events. The exciting part of the day was he was selected to join the development squad which now means he is training for selection in the state team! All very exciting and we are all very proud of his achievement.

Here he is in action
1st place routine

3rd place routine

Cooling off

Santa came a little early this year. Apparently he is going to be quite busy Christmas Eve so he got us (mum and dad) to pick this present up a little earlier. Which was very nice of him to do because its getting quite hot and the kids really needed something to cool off in.

Thanks Santa!

Early in November we spent a day at the beach with some friends. One of the highlights of the day for Ethan was getting to play cricket with the big boys. His excitement and enthusiasm was obvious and he surprised us all at actually being quite good at hitting the ball!

Bit behind on my blog. November has been so busy as we begin the wind down towards summer holidays. I'm looking forward to a slower pace for a couple of months (and not playing taxi for a while!) I'm endeavouring to catch up the last month of what we have been up to!
