Belated Happy New Year!!

I've been a bit slack and haven't done a post since we got back from holidays... I have been busy tho!

Our christmas was fantistic. We had the best time, didnt rest alot. Ben and the boys went fishing on Ben's dad's boat. (i got a kid free day!). Went swimming at the beach, in the rain lol. It was very over cast most of our stay but that made it a bit cooler to do our outdoor things, like motorbike riding on grandad's quad bike. Both littlies and ben and i enjoyed having a scoot around the property on it! As we left it started to really rain and set in alot, lots of the creeks were up and close to going over the roads. So we left at the right time to make it home for Ben's birthday!.

We went around to ben's mum's place for cake and prezzies, once we got home. Cowboy had a blast telling granny all about his time away! Ben got some much needed work socks from his nan! And and Ipod docking station from his mum and step-dad, which i have been putting to use today while i cook in the kitchen!

We had a quietish new years, ben's mum and step-dad, and his cousin, parnter and little boy came around for dinner and some drinks. It was very nice. We did make it to midnight!! yay!! Besides our gatherings and holiday we have been trying to catch up on things while ben had the time off. It wasn't going so well with the boys around and them taking turns in not felling well... So we shipped them off the granny's for the night on saturday night, so we could get some bigger things crossed off our list!

We finally moved our bedroom around so we can get some summer breeze onto our bed of a night! And we moved our desk into the new office, old laundry. Ben laid some left over carpet ontop of the tiles. It looks good. In the future we just need to fix some tiles up on the wall, and buy or build (my idea lol) a new desk and shelving on the walls for all our stuff.

We also had a few drinks together and played some new games we purchased for the Wii, we had a great time. We don't get to spend alot of one on one time together with the boys around, but we do miss the boys when we are not with them, not matter how much they bug and jump all over us. They are the most loveable cheeky turkey's that life woudn't be the same without them! (but we do need to get some adult time in also to stay a little sane!)

Well i think i have covered what we have been up to. The laptop has been sent, last time it didn't take very long to get fixed, so here's hopeing the same happens again! I hope your having a great start the 2010!!
