Break ins

There have been a number of car break ins in our street this week! Fortunately the thieves are not actually breaking in but just getting into unlocked cars and stealing what they can find (including guns!)

My neighbour caught both thieves at 4am because he has a motion sensor that sets off a silent alarm.

Check out the news article here.

It's getting scary around here. Our house is even shown in the newsclip!

Hark! 2012

It's a mad creative wonderland around here at the moment in preparation for hosting our first ever Christmas party.  

We've called it Hark! 2012 because our lighting show is themed around the Christmas carol Hark the Herald Angels Sing. It's an outdoor party to view our musical & lights extravaganza and then enjoy some hot chocolate and treats in the backyard.

Andrew is still creating more light effects and new lighting shows.

I am creating signs, coffee cups and popcorn boxes as well as baking. (Thanks to Trader Joes opening (!?!!?!?) I have lots of other treats too)

As of today we have 78 people signed up to attend  and about half of these are kids! Check back later for more updates.

Christmas Tree 2012

We picked up our tree from Hugh McRae park again this year.  Felicity kept running around in the maze of trees and laughing when we couldn't find her. [Do you like the Christmas tree shirt i made her? Lucy wouldn't wear hers]

We had fun decorating the tree with Lucy taking charge of things and doing a good job! Both Felicity and Henry loved climbing the ladder even when Dad wasn't looking.

Bike riding

Over the summer we bought Lucy and Henry new bicycles because they had outgrown their old ones.  

Lucy, whilst she has a rather large bike, is still riding with training wheels and just doesn't have any balance.  

Henry has great balance and was not good at peddling.  So he has been sitting in the burley with Felicity instead of riding his super cool neon orange Tony Hawk bike.  But a week or two ago he gave it a go and went on a really long bike ride to Anchors Bend and back. 

Go Henry!
