I hope all who read this message have a wonderful Christmas Holiday and bountiful New Year.
Thank you for all your comments left on this blog over the months, I am still working out how to reply to comments posted so apologies if you feel left unanswered, if only I could get broadband to my brain. Maybe next year?
The House of Snore has been very quiet of late and I have been feeling fairly sorry for myself. The noise of children playing is missing and a sore back has reduced my ability to mask the silence with industry and busyiness. Still, I have just put Elephunk by the Black Eyed Peas on the stereo and that has somehow helped. Go Figure.
The rain predicted for Christmas has just arrived. The last couple of months in this part of the world have included hot, hot days, wild uncontrollable bushfires followed by with snow and now it looks like it will rain for days and we will have floods akin to Noah.
But, wherever you are, I hope you drive safely and have an enjoyable time with family or friends.

With the cat away and the kidlets as well, I have been taking advantage of the lack of helpers to do a little re-decorating. The chance of Big R looking at this blog while he is away is remote, but I want it to be a surprise so there will be no photo posting of most of the work.
Except this is the new curtain in the bathroom. I found the material last week and I am loving the new diffused blue light that emanates from this little piece of cloth.

A BIG thank you to Liz and her blog Scrapilious Life who is keeping me updated with photos of the boys and their goings on in LA. Her wonderful daughters have taken their little cousins under their wings and playing games with them and having fun.
(Aunties Harriet and Em, check out Liz's blog for some happy snaps of the boys)
Aaargh I still haven't got any Christmas presents yet - still 2 weeks to go, right?

So the boys left for LA today. It has been a long day with quite a few moments of saddness. But, they called from Melbourne Airport and collect from Auckland, and they have been having a great time on the planes and at the airports. There were only a couple of moments for the little one, once when they hit some turbulance and once when he got hit in the head by the doors at customs. All in all, the activity, excitement and their own tv screens in the seats seems to have wiped away any possibility of missing their Mum - at all! Which is good, but I already miss them!
Anyway I collected this last little piece of Luka's Kindergarten creativity, and this little deer is going to be hangin with me for a while.
