January 2007

  • Spent Australia Day up at the Sunny Coast with Bob and Wendy. Harry’s really starting to get the hang of the beach and surf.
  • Finally sold our house in Townsville, and bought a new house in Dutton Park! We’ll be moving in, in about a month ūüôā
  • Nan turned 95!
  • Updated the site with a few new photos and updated the video of the month page with a video for January.

We wanted to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy new year, but alas we missed the deadline.¬† Life goes on and we hope 2006 was as good to you all as¬†it was to us.¬† We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the last couple of months here in Brisbane, where it’s been great to catch up with old friends after our move from Townsville.¬† We have just had a great week off at the Sunshine Coast.¬†¬† For Christmas I (Mary) scored a beautiful Diamond and Ruby Ring (my first ring since my Wedding Ring), Harry scored way too much and Trent is so lucky to have such a wonderful family!

Harry is delighting both sets of grandparents who are now 1000km closer and we are really enjoying the baby sitting.  As well as all of the family support water has become a big part of our life.  Harry has started swimming lessons and it is now a challenge to limit the eyes down and bubbles in the nightly bath as he loves to put his head in the water.  He is also a big fan of the Brisbane water restrictions and loves to water the garden with buckets and watering cans.   When he is lucky we even put a couple of buckets in his wading pool, (hours of entertainment).  Over Christmas he seems to have learnt to climb.

Anyway I hate Christmas letters that bang on about how great peoples lives are so I will keep this message short.  We hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas New Year and hope that 2007 brings you all the good things in life.
