tree hunting

We drove back to Madison on Thursday afternoon, and we'll be here until just before Christmas.
Yesterday we went out to cut down a Christmas tree. Caitlyn had fun helping, Lachie was not impressed with the cold wind. (or the fact that someone (it wasn't me! lol) let go of his hand and he face planted in the snow.)


They decorated the tree before bed, and put the lights on


And Caitlyn finally got to build her snowman!

Last night Kev's cousin Ian slept over, because his parents and older brother were busy doing the tour of his new college campus, and so Caitlyn and Ian could have a bit of fun playing together.

Last night after he went to bed, Caitlyn cried when she heard that he was going home today, and then this afternoon when he left, they both had overtired, too-much-sugar meltdowns.

They had a lot of fun making cookies and decoorating them yesterday afternoon after the football game finished on tv. And Lachie even joined in their hide and seek game last night.

A lot more photos in my flickr account --here--

Hello from the snow! (and the US)

I can't believe that we have been here for a week already! I have been taking photos, but haven't had any chance to upload or post since we've been here. So, hello, everyone!
It snowed for the first time onSunday night, and that was pretty exciting for everyone, lol. There was snow on the ground when we first got to Madison though, and that's what the first few photos are from, at Lynn's house.
Yes, it is cold! Yesterday was a maximum temp of about -1.


There are more photos in my flickr account, it is getting too painful and taking too long to post on this computer.

Who wouldn't...

....visit the beach most days if you live 2 blocks away, and summer is almost upon us? ;-) Lachie is so much more confident going near the water than Caitlyn was at that age... but she's quite adventurous now!

She went in quite deep, past her waist, and would have gone further, but I called her back... didn't feel like rescuing her and Lachie without ruining my camera lol.

I'm sorry everyone, I can't believe another month has passed since I updated here.

Here are some photos from the last few weeks.

Windy day at the beach...

I know it's been a long time since I posted any photos here, I am sorry! I'll try and make up for it ;)

This afternoon we went for a walk to the beach again.
I can't believe how close we are, and how much nicer the beach is here than most of Hervey Bay beaches. They are usually muddy and yuck and the tide goes way out so that all you can see are puddles and mud flats.
It is really pretty down here, especially since it's not a touristy area, and there are no idiots driving fast/loud cars... like on a lot of the Esplanade.
And I timed it on the way back, and even with Lachie walking, it only took 7 mins.

caitlyn cute


aren't they cute!

Lachie is being a clingy grumper today so I have been sitting half the morning with him on my lap. I did some things to some photos so I thought I'd post them

and I love my new shoes!

Here are some photos from our weekend away at Kinkuna National Park.
(more info here for anyone that is interested)

This was how close our camp site was to the beach! ... just over a sand dune.
