Day 1 - Happy New Year


Welcome to 2011 @ iknitshit

i am kicking the year off with my snapping buddies by participating in "a photo a day"

Today's photo was actually shot last nite, we are holidaying in a sweet little seaside village at my Grandparent in Law's beach house with aunties, uncles, neices, nephews, grandparents etc etc. it's a full house and a family that i am over joyed to be a part of.....anyway back to the photo, as is customary while holidaying at the beach we take family walks after dinner or as it happens this year - bike rides.
New Years Eve is no exception, my little people just love the salt air and the sun.

Historic Buildings

I just adore old buildings
if only the walls of these beauties could talk
what amazing stories they would tell.

Interesting Things

After a busy morning doing a photo shoot with the gorgeous little Bailey.
I returned home and we decided the pack up the car and take a trip to a little village about 30 minutes away.
Nymboida was just a blip on the map until last year when Russell Crowe decided to buy the local pub and build himself a museum.
"The Museum of Interesting Things" is really just a place for Russ to store is excess wardrobe I am sure, with most of the "interesting things" being costumes and props from his movies.
And obviously Russ only has a small garage at home because he has park a half dozen of his personal motorcycles at the museum too.
But there is something a little bit special about this museum,
something a little bit personal, you see, my dad is a car man...... no that is an understatement, he is a car NUT, you see my dad owns a Robinson Jaguar, it is his pride and joy, I don't know a lot about cars, but I know I like this one, it's red and it's shiny !
The kids were very excited to see "Poppy's Racing Car"
although Lillian was reluctant to have her photo taken with it
(she was distracted my the mannequins in the stage coach, after we had just explained the process of taxidermy and the giant horses pulling Russ's Gladiator Carriage, she was a bit concerned that the people had been taxidermed too ! )


ParkLife

I jus tlove a good saturday afternoon at the park with the husbeast and the kids!

100 Stars !!!

Miss Lilli has been working on her star chart all year.
She earnt stars for good manners and for helping others,
for setting the table and clearing up after dinner, tidying her room,
helping pack her school bag each preschool day,
and other efforts she made throughout the year both large and small
Her self determined goal was 100 stars, her self determined reward, Seaworld.
Well last week, Lilli made it to 100 stars,
and not a parent to go back on my word
and wanting to give her the reward in a timely manner
i booked in to take a flex day and we took
Miss Lilli and Mstr JD to Seaworld yesterday
and i don't really know who had the most fun ...... i think it was ... me :)
I took ALOT ( 281 ) of photos and of course
i can't show them all here, so here are a brief selection from the day.

why you should not take your children to work..


... because the co-worker who's chair you tied all the balloons too that were left over from safety week last week will offer said balloons to your child, and you child will not be able to refuse the delighful gift that said co-worker is offering and will accept with a squeal of ecstacy, you will have to shove the ballons in the rear of your station wagon and use only your side mirrors to navigate your way home, and once home you will be requested to "take pictures of me mummy, with my lovely ballons, please mummy, i love them, i feel like a bug"
