Silly Season - December 31st - New Years Eve

Firstly i want to wish everyone an AWESOME New Years Eve and all the best for the New year to come!

Well Lilli got a swing set for Christmas and on the Eve of the big day, Daddy, Uncle Ray Ray and Chris'o were building it with the help of the instruction booklet! So with the rain falling from the sky and working under the light from a fluro.... it all came to a speedy halt when they found that the box of brackets for the swings were missing from the 1000 piece setting!

OMG.... So Merry Christmas Lilli... here is your swing set that is missing the swings and is pouring rain so you can't even slide down the slippery slide!

And today for the first time the kids got to play on the climbing wall and the slide... (the brackets are on the way)!!!!

Lucas testing it out!

And now that brings my 'Silly Season' post to an end!!! Bring on 2011!

Not really anything to do with Christmas for today's post! Although the shirt Lilli is wearing was a present from Mama! ;) Anyway..... This morning, when the Sun finally showed it's face in how long!!!!???? We took the opportunity to get back outside with the munchkins and do some long awaited shots with Baby Lucie and her big Brother Lucas..... Which you can check out on Nikki's blog!

I just hung around taking a couple of pics as well!

Silly season

And just as we were packing up the 'footpath'... Lucas and Lilli had a moment of being super nice to each other!

The Fraser family came to Gladstone for a CHRISTMAS holiday this year and I was lucky enough to catch up with them!! Lilli was a little overwelmed at first as she is normally surrounded by crazy boys! But she finally warmed up to them all! They were all super good and played well!!!

Here are a couple of snapshots i got of them playing with the play doh!

Lilli.... looking a little worried.....

So i was planning to get one of Bella this year for my Silly season post's but they left 2 days ago on holiday til after Christmas! So i decided to use a couple from my practice session on her last year! She was just 3 mths old! I think i may have improved just a little bit!?? Lets hope so!
