Santa dropped by.

Well santa made a special trip to our house yesterday.... And dropped off a trampoline for our boys! We are going away to ben's dads for christmas, so we decided to pick it up early and put it together for them. They LOVE it! They still have some santa sacks santa will deliver at grandads house. This was just a little too big to take with us. Lol. So we are going to be away for a few days, having some fun in the sun. Going to the beach, fishing and boating. Providing we don't get too many thunder storms! Hope your christmas is shaping up well. We are all very excited! :-)

Busy week

This has been one of the busiest weeks, i have had in the lead up to christmas. First of all, on sunday we went to the beach with some lovely friends of ours, it was a fantastic day. When we then stopped in at another close friends house on our way home for some dinner and all our kids to have a big play. Now to monday, i got a phone call early from Ben at work, telling me he had some bone from a cow shatter in his face with some flicking him in the eye. So once i droppe blue eyes at daycare (cowboy protested daycare so he came with) we took Ben to the Doctors. He was ordered to rest and sleep the rest of the day away.

So on to Tuesday, we dropped the boys at their Granny's to make the doctor visit for Ben easier. The doc had a good look and couldn't find any scratches or holes, so he only had swelling and bruising! YAY! He took the rest of tuesday off aswell, as he eye sight was not completely back to normal.

Now comes Wednesday, blue eyes woke with a temperature.. great. Wednesday is also daycare day, mum was a little hesitant to take him, but we organised for me to call once i had done my shopping to see how he was going. Mum said he was fine, so i went home and and wrapped up all and i mean ALL the presents!! Well the boys are also getting a trampoline so that is not wrapped lol! Wednesday night we went looking at christmas light the boys had a blast! And so did i, i just love christmas lights and decorations.

Now to the last couple of days and nights... Blue eyes' temp has been up and down and he has been cranky and irritable. So i've been on nurse duty checking his temp half hourly and dosing him up on medication so we can avoid a febrile convulsion. That would be one christmas present i would not like to get thankyou santa. Yesterday arvo and last night went pretty good, until the early hours of the morning. he woke very hot, he was 38c. Which normally is not to bad a temp, but for blue eyes, the higher range of normal gets him felling very yucky. Then later this morn he hit his magic number 39c. Now we don't know what temp he will convuls at so this is the number i remember when we were in hospital with him. So i try my hardest not to let him over it. luckily i got him down! He is now not so hot, but still very cranky. The only thing it seems to be from is his teeth again! All other teeth are through so i'm thinking its his molars starting to play around... Just as long has they stop moving by next week...

Anyway we have both family christmas do's this sunday, so the boys will have some distractions and some fun! I hope all your christmas preperations are going well! :-)

Trying a photo upload. (from my phone)

I hope this photo works, i'm uploading it from my phone. Fingers crossed! It is a very smiley photo of blue eyes. He doesn't smile in photos much anymore, so this is a beautiful photo. If it doesn't work, i'll repost it when the laptop is fixed!

Just an Update on out laptop/life/events!
We are waiting on a slip in the post to send our laptop away, so the journey has started it's just taking a little while to get it there!

Today I am typing this from our playstation 3! Marvelous piece of equipment it is!

On the weekend just gone we had Ben's work christmas party, usually i leave early and take the boys home. This time i decided to kick my heels up aswell. I got my mother dearest to come pick the boys up after the kiddies entertainment.
Bens employer's put on a big "do". They hire out one of the biggest entertainment centre's in town, put on food, live band, and kiddie entertainment. Not to mention the free beer and wine, and cheaper can's of spirits.
This year the kiddies had facepainting and a magic act. Blue eyes got his face done like a puppy (very cute until the lady showed him in the mirror and he wiped most of it away!) Cowboy was a bit scared of the funny ladies dressed up so he got red back spider on his arm! They also have someone dress as santa and give each child a prezzie!! Lots of fun for the whole family, just what christmas is all about.
The boys left at about 7.30pm after their dinner. So it was time for adult fun! Boy did we have some fun!! I had a few drinks..... Of free wine!! lol. We then went out with ben's co-workers to the local club. I haven't been in their for years, but it hasn't changed, just the youngen's look really really young, or i'm now looking really really old!! lol
None the less we had a great time, Ben's co-worker pulled me up on the dance floor to dance with her, my legs were really sore the next day. I'm really not use the partying!!
We had a couple hours sleep before our body clocks woke us up.. and we then picked up the boys, who had a blast staying at nanny's for the night with their cousins!

Not much else happening around here, getting ready for christmas and such. We've had heaps of tomatoes off our plants and our corn is just about done. Pumpkin vine keeps getting bigger but the pumpkins don't seem to be.. The grass is a little green from some rain last week, but we would all love some more, it's hot like our normal summer's are. But luckily we have air con, so if it gets tooo hot on it comes. I would prefer a pool sometimes but we've had so many "heated" (lol) converstaions about it that i think its time to leave it alone and just enjoy the air con... Or the sprinkler!

Hope your all surviving the heat (or the cool). :) xo

So back to the shop it goes. It's still under warranty yay! So only cost for us is to send it to sydney for fixing! So my post's will be few and far between.. Fingers crossed its back not long after christmas! Hope your having better luck with technology! Xo :-)

Wonderful Woodgate.

We had another wonderful weekend away.
Again we did lots of swimming and playing!

This is cowboy and me at 4.30am ready to leave!
He was half asleep until i said we were going to go see grandma and grandad!!

Not sure if this is sunset or rise, still pretty anyway!
(It's at Woodgate)

Kangaroo's are everywhere in this little town.
The house's have hardly any fencing so they can get through, wonder around and eat.
The males are huge fella's, something i would not like to be cornered by.

This is one of the best spots in town to go swimming with the kiddies.
I think its called walkers point... Will have to check,
I know it's Walkers something
It's on the Burrum River, Burrum heads is on the other side.

Our cowboy and some of his cousin's on our walk.
This path leads right along the esplanade.
And i mean the whole way.
Its a great walk.

The beach..
Very windy, not great for much but to sit and watch.
We did have a swim, but it wasn't as bad as this when we went in.

All the boys having fun at the park.

Sooooo many shells to look at, we had lots of fun searching for pretty ones!
Well it's the first of December today,
So we were finally able to put up Christmas decorations.
Not that we have alot,
just enough to Christmas up the lounge room.
And i did finish the Advent calendar,
I will post some photo's of them all soon.
Hope you all had a great weekend as well :)
