take 3

totally random santa hat shoot,
kids were in an OK mood,
and the backyard was gloomy and overcast {perfect for pics} so i grabbed the hats and them
and herded them up to the cement step at the fence..
They co-operated a bit lol
they sat, they smiled, they were wearing horrible clashing colours
{jed was, cant tell in these pics lol}..
but i love them!
Group shot..

Zayne just went FOUR hours with no nappy..
NO wee's, on the floor OR in the toilet,

and as soon as I put his nappy on to go to bed he pee'd in it!
I just knew he was going to do it... :-(

What's been happening in your world?
not a lot happening here,
we still have until wednesday til school holidays start
{not sure why they finish so EARLY though?}
I remember when i was a kid,
waaaaay back then lol
We would usually break up only a couple days before xmas.
ah well.
When I say not a lot happening that was kind of a lie,
just nothing in MY personal life lol.
Our region is experiencing some of the worst floods in
about 50 years, we have had huge amounts of rain which
has made our dams go from almost empty 12 months ago
to overflowing, literally overflowing.
The spillways are going and they have also been releasing water through
the flood gates too, which has caused significant flooding
downstream from us.
We have copped it, but nowhere near as bad as others..
Tegan's little sis also had her baby TWINS!
There were 11 weeks premmy,
but are healthy and doing well!
I am yet to see any pics but i'm sure they are gorgeous :D
Oh, a bit of personal news,
which i'm sure you have all heard by now
is that I am a SBM Master!
It's strange to be allowed to tell, since I have known for so long,
I am glad the cat is finally out of the bag,
even though I dont know of ANYONE who has seen the mag?
No exciting stories from me about finding out either lol.
Oh and YAY we now have XMAS plans lol..
good thing about our family if you procrastinate long enough someone
will step up to the mark!
What else?
I think thats it...
I have heaps of layouts to photograph,
only a few that I can share though..
Hopefully will be back with them sometime soon.

It a HUGE moment

in this household..
Tani's crooked tooth fell OUT,
I was absolutely devastated when it got knocked sideways
on July 4th, 2006 {he he had the year wrong}
It was only a bit over a month before she turned three,
she was playing in the loungeroom,
in a ballerina dress
and Jaiden was spinning her around to make it fluff out,
when she fell over and smashed her mouth on the wooden arm of the futon
we had back then.
I had my back to them when she fell and heard the crack,
and was just SO scared to look...
There was so much blood and I thought the tooth was gone all together to
start off with, but once it slowed a bit we saw the tooth
was still there, but knocked almost completely sideways.
In the years since then it turned back a bit but never became completely
straight and it was slightly discoloured.
I was so upset about it then, and cried for a whole day straight,
but I grew used to it, and it was just the way it was lol...
But 4 years later it is now gone!

fingers crossed that her adult tooth comes through OK!

a few

pics from today,
we went for a drive around looking at the flood damage... :(
Its horrible, there is so much damage,
and so many people effected by it, I really feel for them.
Adelong bridge,
you can see underneath all the crap that has washed through..
The Adelong swimming pool,
just chocka's with dirt, mud, and crap..
The hole in the bridge,
happened in the flood.. Lucky they built a new bridge next door,
due to be opened the day of the flood..

Jounama dam wall,
the spillway

The one i didnt miss...

When it flooded a few weeks ago I wished i had of seen it..
We were at mum's and missed the lot,
only got to see a tiny bit of water the night we got home.
This time it isnt as bad {YET...}
Not sure if I want to see anymore..
