Merry Christmas 2017

Another great one!

Darby looks so grown up in this photo!

This is the same Christmas tree from six years ago! (That baby is Chance!)

We’ve had a wonderful day full of family, food and great presents! Jules’ first Christmas!

So many lovely memories in mum and dad’s new house. Mango smoothies for breakfast!

Ouma and Jules

Cheesey cheese!

Grumpy is good

Merry Christmas everyone! We hope you have had a wonderful day xxx

Christmas photo 2017

The kids got all dressed up for a photo with Santa today. Their idea, not mine. Not that I minded taking them, I just wasn’t that committed to it, but they were keen so off we went!

This happened on the way.

I figured the nap would be good for them!

Then around 3pm we arrived at the shopping centre only to find that Santa had finished up at 2pm.

But we still got our photo! Pretty happy with that effort!

Short change

For both of us

They sure took a lot off Darby!

He looks crazy grown up now.

And I got the same as last time and gosh it feels good!

Not sure how, in my (late) 30s all of a sudden I have wavey hair!? It’s awesome!

Matchy matchy bobs!

I’m trying not to stress

But it’s so hard.

I’ve left Hubs to finish everything off up in Rocky and I know he is capable but it’s so shite when you’re on your own.

Our ensuite as it turns out has some issues and is leaking through the floor so the tiles have had to be ripped up and are hopefully in the process of being replaced.

We just had thousands of dollars of electrical work done including a new a/c installed. I just got the bill today. I hope he has a 12 month payment plan because ouch.

I had an abysmal day looking, or should I say not looking at houses. I got cancelled on three times and got the shits and left.

I’m trying not to feel sorry for myself. I know these are all first world problems. I just need a break from thinking about the hundred things to do. I’m slowly making my way through my to do list and I know deep down it will work out. The process is just sucking at the moment. In a big way.

At least I have my gorgeous kids to remind me that life is good. Not to mention wonderful parents and family and the absolute best husband. Seriously. The best. And I miss him like crazy right now.

The great card mail out

It’s not so much a card this year as a letter and photos. But it still happened. Coming to a letterbox near you! Or it may already be there! We posted on Tuesday. Enjoy xx

Family who post together are the most together!

Posing after posting 😆

 

Not our house

I found a house in Toowoomba today that I really liked.

It went under application an hour later and a few hours after that it was gone.

It wasn’t our house.

If I had to go through everything that has gone on today I would exhaust myself and bore you.

I know we will find our house. I just need to keep looking and keep positive.

And keep looking at this face. (With our friends who live in Toowoomba.)

Made it!

Only a nine hour drive today!

We made it to Woody pt just in time for tacos for dinner.

I’m ready to fall into a heap but my to do list needs some attention.

Actually I just saw the time. It can wait until the morning. Darby is still awake downstairs with me and Chance and Quinn are still awake upstairs. The only clever one is Jules, sound asleep.

Tomorrow is when the real fun begins!

One liners

Sort of.

We sold our fridge and it got picked up (and nearly dropped down the stairs) while Darby was napping on the couch. He came out and looked at me.

“The fridge is missing!!!”

He asked for a chocolate milk. I had decided that it would be a good idea up pack all the cups and kids plates and Tupperware etc in the empty tall boy drawers. He watched me open the drawer and take out a cup where I would normally take out my clothes.

Poor kid is so confused right now.

Having his chocolate milk next to where the fridge should be!
