Since September!

This is going to be one long post!

It's been a while!

I have a few excuses but none really good enough!


So in the last 4 months this has been going on:


Halloween
This year we had a witch and two little devils


Sadly in-between arriving home and Halloween half Madeleine and Juliette's costumes either went astray or were broken! So at the last minute we swapped and they became

Pirates!

There's been alot of helping with rennovations

Not all of it helpful

We discovered that sand made a good medium to practice writing names


and that the strawberry festival was a good way to welcome in summer.

There was music

facepainting

a bouncy castle

and of course strawberries!

Wayne finally had a very successful fishing trip


We went to a superhero costume party and the girls were:


The powerpuff girls!
(I even straighened Jules hair!)

Then there was Trelise's school visit's. I can't believe she is about to be a big school girl :(

Here she is school bag on and ready to go!

and we said good bye to kindy :(

Trelise made a birthday cake from playdoh


She got to show her kindy friends some special times she had had at kindy

and finally one last game.

I promised myself I wouldn't cry!

And then Christmas rolled around

We fed the reindeer


and grew candycanes


left some snacks out for Santa

and low and behold it worked!!!

The candy canes grew

and the stockings were filled!

at the end of the day we had:

three happy girls

one bouncing trampoline

and a Daddy covered in stickers!

After Christmas Katie and Mal braved the insanity and gave the Oliver household a visit.

We had a blast and did some touristy things

We went to the bird santurday

and then to a farm park

We were sad to see them go but looking forward to meeting their new addition!

Then we went on a big adventure!

We drove through a river to get to this historic site


Never did find out what it was!

Then we picked strawberries




And lastly we went camping and got my absolute favourite picture


Phew!!!
