Another 3 months..

have gone by so it is time to update the old family blog. It often feels like we are just doing the same thing day in and day out so it is good to look back and see we do have a life, lol

July- saw Kym and I go 10 pin bowling with Ashlee, Sharni & Tori, Tori got her Silver Award at school, Kym and I went back to Wollar for a day trip and took Brooke, Tori & Brianna, Tori and I went to Featherdale Wildlife Park with Lillijana and Sarah, we brought a new TV and Brooke celebrated her 19th birthday.

August found Kym's brother Rene back in our lives after many years so there was a lot of weekends spent together. We also had a lovely day out on the river with our wonderful neighbours on their boat. Went to dinner for Paigeand a BBQ for Rene to celebrate their birthdays. Tori had both Education Week and Book Week at school as well as her sports carnival. We went to Gulgong to see Maddison and Lily after dropping in to see Kris and meet his new girlfriend Adi and her son Drayden. I put my hand through Brooke's window and we repainted the loungeroom and pulled the carpet up.

September was also a busy birthday month with Tori turning 7 (dinner at Hogs Breath), Brent 17 (dinner at the Colonial) and a masquerade party for Paige's 21st. Mitch also came home and stayed with us for a week til him & Brooke broke up but before that we went for a lovely dinner at Brooke's work. More assembly and awards for Tori at school. The the first week of the school holidays found us at the Smurfs live. Dr reopened my finger after test revealed there was still glass in it :( Went out for the day with Rene and co to a car show, Cables then dinner at the Colo. Kym and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary. Tori had fun on the Dingo when Kym brought it home to do some work and last but not least, Fathers Day :0)

Life is ticking along relatively smoothly for the most part. The kids are all getting way too big waay too fast but Im happy that we get to spend time together still.

I LOVE my family xoxox

Time for a catch up

Life has been hectic to say the least and it has been MONTHS since Ive updated..

April- Easter time and Tori had a ball with a parade at school, a win in the raffle and the bunny's Treasure Hunt. Family wise we had lunch in the park, went to Mia's baptism, the girls and I had lunch at Werrington Lakes and I finally got to meet my sister-in-law and niece when Zeke brought them up for a day trip. Brent took Tori and I out to dinner and later Tori and I went with Julie to the airport to pick up her kids and we also got to meet the wonderful Thye. Tori got a bronze award from school. I had another Girls Night out this time to Teppanyaki at Emu Plains and we went again as a couple with Julie & the rest of her clan.

May- We went to the Hawkesbury Show with Brent and Tori.

It was also Mothers Day and went went to Sizzler for dinner.  Went to Wollar to do some MORE emptying of the property and dropped in to see Kris and the girls on the way home. Brent has been working with Kym and he brought himself a motorbike. Won another game of Unreal Golf. Tori was invited to Kane's birthday party at Kidabout and I FINALLY got to hold Thye when he finally came home from hospital. I got reading glasses.

June- Brent did his upright course and passed for his motorbike licence. Another visit to see Kris and the girls. Spent the day with Sharni. Brought a new lounge at long last.

This is just a snipit of our life which at time's seems VERY hectic and at other times seems to crawl along.

I LOVE my family :0)

Family Update

I'm updating my craft blog all the time and yesterday I looked across and noticed it had been MONTHS since I was on here sp I thought I better update. No, I'm not going to post TONS of photos just a STACK of

Still in 2010..

We managed to have a wonderful family dinner with EVERYONE whilst the in-laws were visiting. These are the small blassings I am grateful for..

I also managed to get photos of the FAB FIVE as well as the new additions to our family :0)

Then we jump to 2011 and January found a few family memories..

We had Mum and Dad, and Natalie, Scott and Annalise over to help me celebrate my birthday.. Then I managed to win a family pass to Unreal Mini Golf and Natalie and Annalise came along with us for lots of fun and laughter.. Australia Day found us celebrating with Dean and Josie at their house.Was wonderful to have ALL the family there. The next day I had to drop Brent up the coast for work so Tori and I took the opportunity to go  to the Entrance. She had a ball swimming in the surf and the waterpark as well as watching the pelicans getting fed..

February was a fairly quiet month but I did manage to go out for a Girls Night Out with some of the fab mums I've made friends with from Tori's school, as well as Cathy's baby shower and Clawdia had 2 kittens.

March was busy again but two of the highlights were..

Natalie's 30th birthday at Mum & Dad's. I managed to get away for the weekend with the wonderful friends I made through Playvan, Kerrie and Francis (Thanks to Kerrie for providing her van :0)

It's times like these I reflect back and think my life's not sooo bad. I'm extremely grateful that I've managed to spend so much time with family and friends...

Here's to the rest of my wonderful life, thanks for dropping by :0)
