Happy Australia Day 2012 (gluten free!)

On Monday two parcels from Australia arrived at our house - one from each set of grandparents containing lots of fun Australiana gear! BIG thanks to Grandma, Nanna, Grandad and Grandpa!

We had a very fun time opening the parcels and going through all the stuff. The kids were especially excited about the chocolates. You would think that Henry had never had chocolate before the way he stuffed it all in his mouth at once. He was faster than Charlie Bucket!

On Tuesday we held our annual playdate for our moms group. We made gluten free lamingtons, ANZAC biscuits, vegemite sandwiches and pavlova. Jodi stood guard over the vegemite and warned everyone to have water on hand before attempting a taste.

The moms were given a quiz about Australian geography and BBQ lingo. Andrew had compiled a playlist of Australian songs and we even briefly put the Australian Open tennis on.

Henry thoroughly enjoyed dressing up for the occasion. Lucy decorated the house with animal posters, postcards, stuffed animals and books.

Andrew is looking forward to eating lamb roast with lamb jam!!
