Buderim Ginger Factory, flower festival

Greetings all,

Last Saturday we visited the Ginger factory Flower Festival. The flowers there were amazing. All were forms of the Ginger plant which were quite big. We had rain at Christmas which helped the flowers to bloom.

This week we have had heaps of rain (8 inches) which was very much needed. We hadn't had any rain apart from a few days at Christmas for many months which is most unusual for this part of the land.

Needless to say we were very greatful for it all.
That is all for this post, so til next time

Christine and Jennifer sharing photos

These are the photos of 2 wall hangings I made for Christmas.

Bob bought Sienna,Mattie and Logan a trampoline for Christmas. He was worn out putting it together.

I made a quilt for Logan's birthday in October and he thought it was a Christmas present....Well it was only a few weeks late.....better late than never I say.<


Greetings all,

I am sorry I have been slack on my blogspot but I have had all sorts of problems with it. Maybe my mind is altering somewhat!

Nevermind here we are 1st February 2010.

We had a lovely start to the year with dinner at our favourite resturant at Mooloolaba. Hot Pippis is right opposite the beach. We had the early seating so the GK's could see the fireworks at 8.30pm The night was warm and balmy with a soft sea breeze blowing.

Movie World part 2

The Stunt show was great but Mattie found the cars very CLOSE and LOUD!
After lunch we watched the Parade.

To end the day Andrew and Bob went on the Batman verticle ride, straight up in no time flat. I am glad it was them and not me!

They both said it was great and lots of fun.
By the time we arrived back at Chris and Andy's place we were all very tired and ready for bed.
It was a great day and Sienna enjoyed the start of her birthday celebrations.
Today is her birthday and went off to school with 30 cup cakes to share with her clas members. Where has the 8 years gone. She is growing into a most beautiful girl.
Happy 8th Birthday Sienna.

Queens Birthday Long Weekend

Greetings all,

What a good weekend. Beautiful days, so clear and sunny.
Sienna is having a birthday and turning 8. As her gift from the family we all went to Movieworld on the southern outskirts of Brisbane. A 1 and a 1/2 hours journey from here.
We were all very excited about the day and it was such good fun.
Bob and I won a doggy soft toy for the girls and then Miss Sienna won a dog on a lead for Logan. (soft toy kind) Logan loves toy dogs so he was happy. The Wellfares all got to go on the Dodgem cars.
Next was the Loony Tunes show with Bugs Bunny, Silvester, Daffy Duck and Tweety Pie, the girls called him Sweety Pie. A nice alternative.

Then we lined up for an hour for rides on the Taxi rides. Sienna and Mattie were fine but I did not think Logan would be able to drive his car. WRONG! He just put his foot down on the floor button and was off like an experienced driver


I will close the giveaway on Saturday June 12th at 4pm.
