Christmas 2012 an New Year 2013


Christmas 2012 is now officially over and we have welcomed in the New Year 2013.  We arrived in Brisbane on the 16th December to share Christmas with our family and it has been wonderful and full of memorable moments.  The kids have grown considerably since we last visited and I must say their manners are impeccable.  Xmas Day was very organised each child sitting patiently waiting to receive their presents handed out by their dad.  Unfortunately Dad had to go to work on Xmas Day but we managed to all share Xmas dinner.  What a feast!  I thought I would share some of those memories with these photos of our stay with you all.

Our days have been spent swimming in the pool, visits to Baskin and Robins and the Movies with the kids.  We have enjoyed every moment.  Thank you very much Fee and Trent for having us.  We did manage to catch up with a couple of friends also.  Our visit ends on Sunday when we start our journey back to Perth.  We are driving a coach back estimating to take about 5-6 days.  Hopefully the heatwave in WA will be well and truly over by then
