Good morning!

While we were pottering around
this morning about 6.30am I heard a really strange sound like a - well I don't know what - and we went outside to investigate, where we saw right above our house, these!

By the time we said Wow and I ran to get the camera, they'd moved, so I ran back to get the zoom lens and got these pics. They must have been right over our house when I first heard them! Jaidyn and I have both never seen a balloon this close to us!

Anyway, thankyou everyone for all your comments on my last post. Lol, I didn't know I had so many visitors still, gee, my blog must be pretty boring otherwise for no-one to want to comment, lol. Please do!

Well, today we are up early again, and for once, I've done most of my housework (well what I'm actually going to do today!) done already. So we will actually get to the shops on time this morning I imagine! Going to exchange some Chrissie pressies, and pick up Greg something little for his b'day tomorrow (have already got him a bar fridge with his parents).

The I'm taking the boys to Currimundi Beach after lunch with some friends from church. Should be a good afternoon, so I'll try to get some pics too. Haven't got any of Eli at a beach yet, although we did take him on our overcast holiday a couple of months ago.

Not sure what we're doing for New Years yet - if anything! Its Greg's b'day so cooking bacon and eggs for breaky, yumm.... and he wants to sleep in so we might skip church this week too, have a really nice lazy day.

Hope you all have a happy Saturday and New Years too, whatever you do!

Awesome Photos Nat. Have a great time at the beach today with your boys. Happy Birthday to Greg for tomorrow and hope your New Year is full of blessings.

Wow, how fantastic to have those flying over your house!

And as for your last post I'll add my 2 cents worth - everyone measures success differently. And having had what most people would call "a successful career", I can tell you that a career and owning a house does not necessarily make you happy. In fact, it can do the opposite. And having nearly missed out on having a child, because I had the successful career and the house... Well, I was miserable.

At the end of the day, I think that being happy is the best measure of your success - that you and the people you love are happy and healthy and that you are living your life authentically and in the best way you can.

Happy New Year, whatever you decide to do. I think that we'll be sleeping when the new year rolls around, lol.
