We are here...

and have been for the past 2 weeks and I know I have been bad and not updated at all about our trip.
We arrived to the worst dust storms in Sydney in 70yrs.....check out the photos...
We have spent time in Tamworth with my folks, it was so cold there that I had to go and buy Jumpers and slippers. We then moved on to Toowoomba to my sisters house, where I have been for the past week. We have been busy doing wedding stuff, programs..printing and re printing, and wedding favors.
Today we made it down to Brisbane and are staying with our good friend the Beckers, they have 4 girls. So with 6 girls and Markie the house is busy but they are all getting along really well. Here is a picture of the girls after a swim this afternoon, they had to have a bath because it was so cold...

Less than 48hrs....

AAAARRRRRRHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!! I am have a small freak out because that is how long till we start long long long long journey home. And I still have so much to do in that time.
Here is our Journey itinerary ..
  • 7.55am (Monday Morning) Train from Inverness to Edinburgh
  • 11.30 arrive in Edinburgh....have to kill about 4 hour in Edinburgh
  • 4pm check in at the Edinburgh Airport
  • 5pm go threw security and say farewell to Mike who will now head back to Inverness... It's now just me and the kids!!!
  • 6.15pm take off for London heathrow
  • 7.40pm arrive in London.... now change for T5 to T4 and head to gate for Sydney flight
  • 9.40pm wave good bye to the UK
  • 5.15am Wednesday land on Aussie soil in Sydney -8.15pm UK time Tues-
  • - now this is going to be my major concern, I know have to collect my luggage and double count the kid to make sure i have them all and not any extras. Clear customs with 2 suitcases, 4 carry on, 1 buggy, 3 kids.... and any sanity left. Change to the Domestic terminal and check for our flight to Brisbane.
  • 7.15am Do our last leg of this mammoth journey fighting for Sydney to Brisbane
  • 8.35am Bust with excitement as we arrive HOME to all our great friends and family... hugs all round
Anyone is welcome at the Airport, we will head to Macca toombal for Coffee after arriving for a quick catch up.
Other wise we are really looking forward to coming home...... see you then!!!!

Lexy has been asking for ages to have her ears pierced, in our family we have all had our ears done when we were 10... but at 9yr 5mth we gave in and let her get then done so she could were ear rings at Courts wedding in October. My little girls is growing up, there are days that just can't believe i'm a mother to a almost 10yr. I'm so proud of her showing great responsibly in looking after her ears, cleaning them and turning them.

doesn't she look grown up?

Got to love hats!!!!

Well today my boy was 7mths old... were does the time go?? I'm loving seeing his personality develop. He is a mummy's boy threw and threw, and despite being born in Scotland he has the Aussie in him and loves being outside, if he is upset all i have to do is walk out the front door and he is happy. He is bringing more and more joy to our house everyday.....I even think that girls would now admit that they love him!!

Don't you just love that face?!?!

What he is up to this month...
  • Sitting up without any assistance
  • is starting to push up on his knees
  • has 7 teeth
  • loves pulling hair
  • is eating 3 big meals a day
  • Has an intolerance to no yogurt, milk proteins,
  • loves chewing on apple
  • can move around quickly with rolling and wiggling
  • loves chattering with his sisters
  • is very strong and steady on his feet
  • loving his jolly jumper
Just lovable!!

Markis Play date!

We had friends come over in the holidays with and little boy C. He is 3 mths older than Markie, we have got together before but never have the boys interacted so much. He was great to see, C. kept trying to bite Markus or pulling his hair (not that there is much). Markus loved it, I can't wait to see how they interact next time.

Mummy and her boy!

Alyssa's first day of P1.....

Alyssa started school today, a few snap shoots of the day. She had a good time, all she could talk about when she got home was how one of her friends got in trouble for talking. No school tomorrow, but all her class will be there on Thursday (and I got lots done without the girls in the house).

Mummy and Alyssa

Daddy and Alyssa

Alyssa and Alexis.. Lexy's first day of P5

Alyssa and all her friends waiting in line ready to go in.. her teacher too!

Still the poser!!


No not the TV show!!!
We have been spending a bit of time with the Neighbours over the Holidays, the kids get on really well. Alyssa plays with the little boy A. and Alexis plays with the bigger girl E. We went to the indoor play ground with the kids last week, and then on Saturday we went and saw E. play in the pipe band down the High St.

Lexy on the Climbing wall>

Markus did not like the ball pit!!!!

Alyssa had a blast, she had sweat dripping off her when we left.
It's great having a teenager around she loves Markie and great at supervising the others!!
