There was a bit of a storm out to the North so I thought I might grab the camera and have a bit of a play with the lightening...
If you look really closely you can see the lightening. (really closely LOL)
Was good fun but the Mozzies got me in the end.

Well the day is here and the tree is full, the kids are still asleep and it's already hot as.
Last night was our drive around town to check out all the lights - so as to tire out the kids so they would sleep in a little bit LOL.. seems to have worked.
Hope everyone gets what they want this year..
again Merry Christmas...

We nearly didn't make it, we had to take Kate to Hospital on Friday morn with her cyclic vomiting,
Fortunately with our new letter for the ED she was treated straight away in stead of "we'll just observe her for a few hours" and quick treatment (sedation) means only an overnight stint but this time with obliging doctors Kate was home Friday night Yay!!
It was one on those trips – good and bad!!
The venue was great,
the weather was great.
I forgot nearly all the important stuff, (after Kate being in hospital and all)
And the Kids (boys) were atrocious LOL.
I even took them on a big bush walk to try and kill off some energy and they were little angels, as soon as we opened the door to the room they turned in the devil himself.
I’m sure my brother and I were never like that (right Mum?).
Our Lollie Lunch..
Kate being not 100% didn’t help, neither me forgetting the Panadol, Or a syringe for her seizure meds, or food for lunch or…should I go on!
All in all when we arrived home tonight everyone was happy and felt like they had a good time, and that was the main aim.
Donna didn’t even take her phone with her!!!
Where are my Grapes and Palmfronds??

Friday saw Jack and I in the workshop making a tray for our Xmas decoration!
Then Friday night was our usual Strand trip for Macca's - but this time we had Fish and Chips and it was bloody Terrible!!
And a play on the Spider Web.
Kate and Will were off taking 'Lady' for a walk with Julia!
I had won two tickets to the Basketball to see the Crocs play Thanks to MacDonalds McCafe.
So I took Jack - and he bought a Crocs hat and Had it signed by two of the players!

It was deadset 10 deg cooler than in town, which was a godsend for Sat.
The drive is a beaut one, about 3/4's of the way up we reached the clouds and down came the windows and up went the sunroof and rear curtains. For about 20mins we drove through thick cloud (this was at about 10am).
On reaching the village we stopped off at the local Cafe/Inn and sampled some of their scones and cake. As were a group of 7 Bike riders also enjoying the cool day out.
After a quick bite it was then onto the dirt and out to the Lake.
A bit of a cruise around by Kate and her chair we soon picked out some good (accessible) camp spots.
A check out of the toilets and all was set for a future trip for sure.

Last week end my niece Hana had her first birthday and we headed over to Magnetic Island for her party. It was the kids first time on the barge.
A couple of mates that I used to work with were working on the barge on Saturday so the kids had a go at steering the barge and got a good view from the wheelhouse.
