Steve's sky dive.

Steve had his jump last Saturday. We thought it would have been cancelled at first because of the cloud cover. They were able to go ahead though because the cloud cover was light.

He liked jumping out the best. He had to cross his arms over his chest so that he couldn't hold onto the door when they had to jump.

Hope you all enjoy the photos. I think now that Steve has done this, I would like to do it too one day.

6 days to go

6 days till Steve has his tandem jump. 5 days till our wedding aniversary. We are also in the last week of school holidays. Steve will have two days this week on Wednesday and Thursday so we really only have two days left all together. I really like the holidays but I am also looking forward to starting a new school year. I have looked at my mothers rule of life and will be changing a few things. Christopher will miss everyone once they go back so I am hoping to have a few more social activities for him this year. I hopefully will take him to kindy gym and playgroup.

The holidays continue.

I have been making the curtains for our lounge/dining room. The weather has been warm so we have also spent a bit of time taking the children to the pool. It is a good oportunity for Steve and I to talk without the children sitting on top of us.

It is nice to have the children around and not have to rush around the house in the morning getting ready for school. I have been staying up to late though.

Today it is only 10 days till Steve goes for his tandem jump. Hopefully I will have some pictures to put up here once he has done it.

Holiday fun.

We have just got back from a three day stay at the beachside in Port Hughes. Port Hughes is a small country town on the South Australia Yorke Peninsula. We had fun swimming every day and spending time with our friends the Cipa's. The only downer was sea lice. Several of our children got biten by them we think. They would be swimming in the water and feel somthing sting. They would look and see little bite marks that were red and sore. The first day we didn't get bitten by them but we did on the second and third day. It was nice to get away but it is also good to be home.

The children and Steve have three weeks of holidays left. We are all looking forward to sitting around, going to the pool and taking it easy. Steve will finish of a few more jobs around the house and I am going to do a bit of sewing for the girls and house. I am sewing curtains and matching lounge covers for our lounge. I am really looking forward to finishing of the loungeroom.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Aussie Coffee Shop

Thanks so much to Judy for sending me a reminder to post here again. Life has been unusually busy. I have been thinking about my blog but just haven't had the time to post.

4 weeks before Christmas we had a Christmas pagent. After the pagent the children can go to Gladstone Square and have free rides and see Santa. There is also some bands playing and our Mayor speaks. My children all had a fun time and Christopher went on his first ride.

We have put up Christmas lights this year for the first time. It looks really good. I can say that without being to bigheaded since Daniel and his friend Madison put them up.

We had Carols by Candlelight the weekend before Christmas which I really enjoyed also. Thnis is the first time we have taken the children to anything like this. I think it will become a regular event for years to come.

Christmas day was full of lots to eat, wrapping paper all over the floor and fun together as a family. The day after Christmas we went to Steve's parents shack and stayed for two nights with Steve's sister, Joanne. She has three young boys and my children all enjoy staying with them and spending time together. After this we spent a couple of days in Adelaide catching up with friends and family. It was a nice week but it is good to be back home.

New Years has just past as I have written this post. Today we celebrate Daniels 15 birthday. Happy Birthday Daniel. I hope you have many more.

Happy New Year to everyone. I pray that God will bless all who read this blog in 2007.

Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
