Wishing you a WET Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from our Family to yours!

We finally have an updated family photo, and it turned out pretty good!

It is raining here again. We did have a few days last week with sunshine then whilst we were away at Ben's dad's it started to rain alot and the river is up again. Flooding all the low lying areas. Wonderful Christmas present mother nature!

We did have a wonderful weekend away though. Full of fun!

We made it to the beach despite the looming rain clouds and strong winds.. But we did get some sunshine whilst there. And we had a wonderful time searching the beach for hidden treasures.

We went Kayaking in the creek near granddad's house. Grandad tried fishing and got his line caught in a tree... hehehe The boys loved sitting in the kayak with us and gliding along the water.

Grandad also took the boys to look for animal tracks, they found some kangaroo tracks and lots and lots of ants looking for food on the very wet ground!

The rain followed us home on Sunday and there were some crashes along our way, but we made it home safe and sound! We are having a very busy week getting ready for Christmas! Not too much longer to go!! Hope all your plans are shaping up for Christmas and its a beautiful day for you!

We've had a few days of on and off showers and heavy rain. Yesterday the boys had, had enough and decided it was play time in the slosh we call our yard!

Blue Eyes enjoying himself!

Cowboy giving himself a bath apparently! and Enjoying it haha

The dog couldn't be out done he had to join in on the fun and games as well!! And got just as dirty as the boys, but poor Bruce will stay that way until a sunny day, as it is pouring again whilst i type this..

After enough in the slosh, it was time to jump it off!

Our summer this year is suppose to be wetter than normal... I'm not happy with this, But can't change it! It hasn't really heated up a great deal, still some humid days from the rain but not as hot as it usually is this time of year...
We had a great time at Ben's work Xmas party on the weekend, the boys got to see Santa, get some lollies and balloon swords to play with. And other kids to wear them out! Oh and a jumping castle they loved it. Topped off with a sleepover at nana and grandads house. Perfect!
Hope you all had a great weekend as well :-)
