As we near the end of 2011, we are most fortunate to be spending these days with our entire family. Our three children and all our grandchildren are visiting for a few days.
We enjoyed a barbeque and sharing of gifts with much fun, laughter, jokes, teasing, sharing stories and recent experiences. We discussed solutions to the Nation's problems but also appreciated gratitude for our well-being and togetherness as a family.
My apologies to Jasmine who was "behind" some of her cousins in this snap, but wanted to share our family with you.
We have enjoyed walks, games, tending to animals, riding the quad bikes and trying to catch a Yabbie. "Midge" (a sheep I bottle-fed) delighted all by joining in accepting lots of attention and a few slices of bread.
Farmer John "conned" some into helping mark lambs!
Kirsten and Courtney had to catch them, pass them on to Rowan, John did the "nasties" and Ashleigh painted them with "medicine". Hunter and I just watched - someone has to supervise and someone has to be the photographer!
