The action is hotting up in Gunnedah today....

Relay for life is over for another year...
Such great atmosphere for a great cause....
The kids walked and walked!!
When i caught up with them they were resting.....
Here is the gorgeous Lydia
After a bit of a rest it was synchronised cartwheels...
Then i headed up to Porky to take some photos of the Jacaranda Trees..
They look awesome...
When i was up there, i could see through the camera,
the motorbikes starting their drags runs....
They are actually in the top photo, but its too small to see them......
So I got closer.......

The burnout...

The drag...
Hoping to just scrap tomorrow......... After a sleep in that is!!

My Rug Arrived!!!!

Its always a bit of a gamble buying decorator items on line
because you dont know exactly what the colour is like
and you cant touch it......

But what a find this shop was....
A great place to buy that perfect rug

As i mentioned a few days ago, i ordered this gorgeous gold shagpile rug...
Well, it turned up today
and I couldnt be more thrilled!!!
Its totally perfect!!!!
The colour that was displayed online was
the exact same as turned up today!!
The texture is just so soft
Like a big teddy bear
You could curl up on the floor and sleep on it!!!
Which Stu says that cat will probably do!!!
But i wont allow his fluffy butt to come anywhere near my new rug!!
Isnt it perfect!!!
I just love it when you buy something online and it turns up to be exactly what you thought it would be!!! Yay!!!
Go see if they have something that might suit your place....

Welcome to Dolbel Zoo

With a visit to our back yard this week,
there are more than just humans residing among us..

A peak at the step at the side of our house
you will find something scaly....
See him peaking through...
Every now and then we can catch him sunning himself...
But you've gotta be quick, he is very shy!!
Then we have the furry variety...
Puss, Conan or Cat, depending on who is calling him,
siting in the best spot in the house..
They have him so spoilt!!!
This little guy is so adorable!!
He can talk too.... he gets him point across!!!
So soft, he is pancakes..
There is also black rabbit and black pig in there too....
The pig is a Guinea pig, not an oink oink pig...

Now this bloke..
I was pegging out the washing
and look what i found peaking out at me...
Its only about 2 metres away from me...
and didnt seam scared at all...
Looking at him though he looks very poor..
He might be crook...
He found some grass to eat...
Ive tried to feed him bread and lettuce..
And what's that lurking out the dining room window?
He's found a cool place to rest..
He is still here....
There was another kangaroo over the weekend that got caught in the barbed wire fence out the back of our place in the paddock. (Not our paddock). One of the neighbourhood kids found her all tangled up in the wire. It had cut right through all its flesh to the bone. Llyod (our neighbour) cut the wire to help it excape, but it was too far gone..
And guess what? She had the tiniet little joey....
Sadly, she didn't survive the ordeal, she had to be put down.
But the little joey has gone to wires to be raised and released....

These Boys Make me Smile :)

My little baby brother Gary is into his drums....
So of course this is something he will hand onto his son...
Its never too young to learn....

Drum Lesson
Lesson 1: Get in the Zone.... Focus...
Lesson 2: Learn to hold the sticks.... Not eat them!!!
Lesson 3: Got it!!!
Ready for Lesson 4!!
Noise!!!

Zane is 4 months old now.... Such a big boy!!!

I used to have such cute kids :(

Its so sad...
The kids grow up so fast!!!!
I remember these times like that were last week....
I was looking through photos to scrap and came across some funny ones that bought back some memories......

We went camping at the Warrumbungles...
Emelia was so scared of the Wild Cats!!
I dont know???
Maybe Josh said something to her about Wild Cats, but she was so scared!!!
Anyway, they went exploring in the bush..
About 4 metres away from camp!! Too funny!!!

Josh was the brave one....
Emelia thought she was so brave!!!!
Standing right next to this HUGE kangaroo!!!
Look at the tiny little thing!!
She looked so cute as she had attacked her hair not long before this and had cut all her fringe off to the scalp!!! Hilarious!!
And here they are ready for school!!!
Emelia was in Kindy, and Josh in 2nd class!!
So cute!!!
Its all so sad really!!!!
Where have the years gone......................................

A Rainy Day Monday!!!

Hands up those that didnt want to get out of bed this morning!!Q
Its so nice laying in bed and listening to the rain....
But it is Monday..
School Certificate Trials start today and
The Higher School Certificate is continuing....

Here are my kids this arvo with the rain...
Actually, rain or shine,
this is how you will find my kids of an afternoon...
Emelia multi tasking...
On the phone and msn at the same time!!!
Usually the ipod is in too...
Josh playing WOW with his online mates....
Complete with online conversations.... hence the earphones..

I did some experimenting with the camera today...
Standing on the back veradah!!!
This was using the 55-200 lense on auto landscape setting i think
It was like maybe 6 metres away this tree....
This Jacaranda tree was about 3 metres away...
Close up of Mud... I was trying to capture the rain drops...
Gotta fiddle with manual setting though...
And this was with the 18 - 55 lenze
You can see the rain!!!
I will get it all figured out soon and will have the confidence to use the manual settings...
