I was a bit slow on the "Christmas" message... so instead you're getting a HAPPY NEW YEAR message!!!

We went on holidays on 12 Dec - 28 Dec, up to the Gold Coast where it's nice and warm, with lots of theme parks! We had a fantastic time, except for the part when Mr T slipped down 6 wet (stone) stairs, and has possibly fractured his back (again).... oh, and the part, where a nob driver ran up the back of the hire car I was driving... oh, and the part where the car insurance excess cost me $3300 - other than that - it was a smashing trip!

Here are some pics:

In the rain on Christmas morning... it was still 34 degreesC!
Kisses for big sister


Flume Ride at Seaworld

Waiting to take Tiny on the kiddy rides

Posers at Seaworld!

Googles for Christmas:
More googles for Christmas!
Layer upon layer, of kids!

Big brotherly love!

We had "old time" photos done... Tiny wouldn't smile!

How old does my girl look, in this shot?!
Serial killer in the making?!!!
Family of gangsters! Check out the rack on Mummy?!!! Honestly... it's all the dress!

Fly Tiny, Fly!
Fashionista... heels and googles - it's all the rage, this season?!
Hangin' with Porky... (and the pig statue?!)

Daddy and Tiny chill out at Wet n Wild (its the name of the water park... not a p0rn0?!)

Christmas morning was a very small affair - because we were on holidays, gifts were light on - but thoroughly enjoyed! Tiny's absolute favourite thing EVA... is Dora. Urgh. Dora? I find her EXTREMELY annoying!!!! Tiny wants to watch her every waking moment! "Dooorah? Dooorah?"

Well, from us down under - we wish you all an absolutely fantabulous new year! May 2010 be the year that your dreams come true - May you smile and laugh more than you ever have before - May you find where your treasure truly lies.
God Bless!

Have a WONDERFUL New Year!!!

Ps. The verification word is untori! Ryan and I just made it official over the holiday that we are changing the babies name from tori! (We engraved her new name on an ornament) I just had to laugh. Now I guess it's officially, official - untori! LOL
