Brooke has graduated from Year 12 and Tori and I went to the ballet
Halloween.. we celebrated our first Halloween where we actually had trick or treaters coming to the door and Tori could trick or treat around our own neighbours... the joys of living in suburbia again, lol
since moving in to our house we haven't been up to much as everyone's been sick. I had a chest infection/athsma THREE times (thankfully got the all clear on pneumonia & whooping cough), Tori an ear infection and Brooke was at one stage thought to have glandular fever but ended up a REALLY bad case of tonsillitis. Hopefully all that is behind us now but a highlight was that me and my girls, got to spend a week with Kris and his girls. The girls are getting sooo big and I wish they lived closer so we could see them more often. The best part is now Maddy is older she remembers us between visits and runs up yelling "Mim, Mim" (worst part is when she rings crying coz she wants to come to our house :( We still have to empty our "country" house so hopefully more visits in the not too distant future..
STILL trying to get this "quick" settlement done on the sale of our other house but the contracts still aren't right and we won't sign until they are.
Everyone has settled in here well besides me being sick for WEEKS and then the kids, the house is starting to take shape and will be good when the sale goes thru and we can do some painting and buy some new furniture.
Have had Kris and the girls down for 2 visits since we moved and is great for them to have their own room to sleep in.
I haven't updated he family blog for a while so I thought I'd better update with a few things we have been up to...
Kym was working at Taronga Zoo so we got snuck in to have a look at the new baby elephant and had a fab couple of hours (despite the rain)
We also got to go to the Medieval Fayre again and watch the jousting. After Tori being terrified when she saw a basket of (fake) decapitated heads and hating the first hour or so there, we all had a fun day...
While there I managed to get some good photos of the family....
We've also had Anzac Day but I thought I've inundated you with enough photos of Brent in uniform..lol Over the last couple of months I've been fortunate enough to have spent time with all the family..
and lastly, after looking at 33 houses we found a house and we are now new home owners...(we are also in the process of selling our house to a coal mine so we now have 2 houses to pack into one)
We managed to get away to Canberra for a few days and had a BLAST visiting the Dinosaur Museum, the National Mint, Questacon and the War Memorial (where we spent 7 hours and Brent could have stayed 7 more..lol)
