Sunflowers, Butternut and Puppy.

The sunflowers survived possums and turkeys. I have two butternut plants left - this one and another growing on the other side of the pool fence. I hope the butternut survive. In the background you can see Kali sniffing about.

Birthday Weekend ....

This weekend was a big birthday weekend. Saturday was Greg's birthday - and I am shocked to find I took no photo of him on his special day ! We were so busy - we went shopping early in the morning to buy him the perfect wet and dry vacuum cleaner. For his work shop I hasten to add !!

We were lucky and got the last one in the range he really wanted.

Then he popped to the local fishing shop and chose a fishing reel for his fishing rod.

After buying all his birthday presents we had to go grocery shopping for Anna-Kate's party on Sunday and cake for all ! Then we rushed home to sort out boxes and boxes ! We have a spare room FULL of boxes .... it is a terrible thing when one's hubby finds ones stash of fabric, wool and craft books ! (BLUSH!)
Here Anna-Kate opens her telescope ... she has been asking for one for ages so no she has one.
Took this photo to show Mum, Ben, Sarah, James and Abs their parcels arrived safe and sound !


At the party - Anna-Kate and the girls at the movie party - but ended up in the pool instead as it was soooo hot !


Cake anyone? This cake was pure ice-cream yumminess.

A good weekend was had by all .

Please Welcome Kahlua .... otherwise known as Kali.

We drove out to Erina to pick up Kahlua yesterday (Saturday). She was with her brother at the pet shop. Her tail just does not stop moving !!! She is a Beagle cross - crossed with what we are not sure - someone said she looks like a Labrador on the school run so eeekkk .... but we will see.
Here is one photo of calm - she does like her puppy bed - and usually sleeps in it - or if a loud nose scares her she runs to the bed. Luke is seen as her play mate and Anna-Kate is the big sister. They both adore her already - Greg was tired yesterday as he was worried about are through the night but she was OK - last night - not so much, I got up with her at 4-30am as she wanted to play and Greg needed sleep - she did settle with me in the lounge (on the sofa) sssshhh don't tell Greg !

Curled up asleep this morning !
