Pelican Feeding at the Entrance

We were lucky enough to get to see the pelican's getting fed when we were at the Entrance recently. It was a fantastic experience for the kids (and us) to hear all the information and see these beauties up close. I marvelled at how "polite" they were moving out of the way once they had a fish so the next in "line" could get one :0)

If you look closely you you can see a fish in the bill of the pelican walking away!!

Fun on the Coast

Just as everybody's holidays are coming to an end, we got to spend a couple of days on the coast with my bestest gal pal Christina and her family, who I've missed like mad since we moved down here. I must say it's lots of fun when we get together coz even tho our oldest 2 are out of the nest..when we get together there are still 10 kids between us!!!

Thursday found us all at The Entrance and we had a great couple of hours on the beach before we had to sadly part ways

After having lunch and watching the Pelican Feeding (will post later) we all went our own ways. Hopefully it won't be another 22 months until we see each other again! And hopefully next time we wont end up sooooooooooo sunburnt...Im still BRIGHT red after 3 days!!!! :0(

New Years Eve/Day

My dad and stepmum came to stay with us for a couple of days starting NYE and it was great to see them as it has been a couple of years since the last time.

Had a blast sitting on the verandah and watching the fireworks go off all over Sydney whilst playing with glowsticks and sparklers :)

I love these pic of Brent and Dad... and Brent's reaction to Dad clowning around and popping his teeth out...then Tori trying to get them out

A those of you who know me, know I was DREADING this birthday....but have discovered that being 40 is not as bad as I thought it would be....

Christmas Eve/Day

Continuing the tradition of looking at lights on Christmas Eve we saw some beauties and the kids had a ball with the snow machine.

Brent and Tori also put out the Magic Reindeer Food that we the reindeer's could find their way to our house ;0)

Christmas morning with my babies... this is what its all about :0)
