Haha - this sums up my feelings about Halloween perfectly!!

1007.  Morning tea with a lovely friend;

1010.  Panadeine.

Thankfulness Oct 30

Today I am thanking God for:

Throwback Thursday
8 month actual / 5 month corrected twins

1004.  The chance to escape to the shops for an hour tonight.  My kids CANNOT STOP NIGGLING AT EACH OTHER.  It's driving me crazy - I need a break;

1005.  Friends to read the bible and pray with, eat with, and sponge lifts off;

1006.  A fun school excursion for Emma.  They even went 'fishing'.  Pretty clever of the state forrest to enlist school kids to scoop non-native fish from the waterways and call it 'fishing'. Emma's been wanting to go fishing for ages - I'm very thankful the school granted this wish without me having to be involved!



Romans 11:36 
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. 
To Him be the glory forever. 
Amen.

Thankfulness Oct 29

Today I am thanking God for:

Look at this cutie with plaits!

1001.  Ashlea's improving fine motor skills;

1002.  A car serviced.  I am trying to turn over a new leaf and become a regular car service person rather than a drive the car into the ground type person.  I put Murray's car in for a service as well as the van and was told his needed a new battery.  Old habits die hard - I told them while ever the car still started it did not in fact need a new battery.  Local friends get ready to rescue me from the side of the road when it runs out;

1003.  After school AFL fun for Audrey - and Super Neighbour Kate for taking her and bringing her home - even though she's not living next door at the moment!


And what she looks like at the end of the
school day.  The new found fine
motor skills were put to use opening
the paint pens!
Romans 11:36 
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. 
To Him be the glory forever. 
Amen.

Thankfulness Oct 28

Today I am thanking God for:

Aww cute - look what I found
Emma dressed as a Zebra for preschool - at least 5 years ago!


998.  Girls playing nicely together;

999.  Leftovers for dinner and THREE more meals in the freezer to last us the rest of the week;

1000.  Making it to 1000 thankfuls!  They haven't all been unique which was my original goal.  I think chocolate, sunshine, cups of tea and my awesome friends have rated a mention quite a few times!  The question now is do I continue this project to  the end of the year....?  Or stop now?  I don't want to stop being thankful....but I'd quite like to stop blogging every day - although I've done it for so long now I might not be able to stop even if I tried!


Romans 11:36 
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. 
To Him be the glory forever. 
Amen.

Today I am thanking God for:

Hippie Ashlea - look at that great standing!!

995.  A productive day at work and an uneventful annual performance review;

996.  Kate texting me the Aldi specials while I was at work - Audrey really wants a guitar for Christmas - Aldi have them for $35 this week.  Pretty happy with that;

997.  How much Emma is loving her art classes and Audrey her music classes.


Romans 11:36 
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. 
To Him be the glory forever. 
Amen.

Never a good idea to take pics while people are eating!

Closest we could get was one child looking like a Grandma.

987.  Grandma always being available to attend Grandparents Day at school;
