Getting Back To Normal.

Chloe, Alanah, Jessica,
Robertson, Cassandra, David and William. Here are all my children together on Christmas Day.
It's not often enough any more when we are all in the one place. Jessica has gone home to Roma now and David will leave for Charters Towers at the end of the week.
I am missing them all ready......My daughter in law left for a 3 week holiday to Europe on Sunday. How blessed is she? Karen has gone with 3 other teachers she works with. My son was not interested in going at all he bought a boat instead, he is his fathers son.........
I know that he will miss her though and I wish I was with her!!!!!!

This is a small glimpse of my lounge room Christmas morning. Smiles every where and lots of fun. We all enjoy giving presents to one another as that is the best part isn't it?
Below is breakfast out in the courtyard. My husband always makes a to die for fruit salad for Christmas. We had that with pancakes and ice cream washed down with champagne and orange juice for breaky. I know wicked but so nice.

Well Christmas is over and the New Year is nearly here!
I have cleaned the house and got all the washing up to date so I am very pleased with myself.
Now I can get the caravan ready for holidays...
Have a blessed day all.


  1. I really enjoyed the picture of the children Mandy.

    I can relate because I have a big boy who is nearly 21 and a girl who reminds me a little of your older girls. I suppose the dynamic must be similar, yours more dynamic than mine though if that makes sense.

    I hope you enjoy your week!

  2. Gotta love the family hustle and bustle, but normal is definately good to get back to.

  3. It is good to get back to normality here too.

    My last visitor (daughter) goes home to Melbourne tomorrow, so then I can get back into my routine.

    Love the pictures of your beautiful big family, must be some celebration when you all get together.


  4. It looks like you had a lovely big family Christmas. Thanks for the comments on my blog. You have a lovely family too. It's nice to pop into another Queenslander's blog too, have a lovely holiday.
