Guess who turned two!!!

Our little man has turned two!!! We had a rainbow birthday celebration for him, with a few friends (the Flood family) who popped over for an afternoon play... Thank you very much friends and family for calling, sending cards and the lovely gifts xxx

We popped down to NSW for our other little cuzzy's birthday party, to re-register the car in NSW and for school interviews with our teachers for next year.... Below is a piccie of the cuzzies jammin in Mullumbimby.

Noosa, QLD

We headed south for Noosa, to stay with our friends in Doonan, the Coles-Morrish gang. We parked up the caravan in the backyard and enjoyed hanging out with friends and catching up...

These guys are building a new driveway and pool at the moment (in the same week), so it was pretty crazy busy, leading up to the start of the Christmas holidays... The family then took off for NZ and we stayed in Doonan to mind the house, animals and the new pool.... very lucky ducks xxx

Dadda found this bike at the tip!!!  Very lucky boy..

Front tooth fell out whilst diving in the pool - we found it in the pool filter

We went and camped for a few nights at Cotton Tree, right by the sea... Our caravan fridge, which has been on its last legs since Northern Territory, finally packed it in, so we're living with an eski/chilli bin for the last part of the trip.

Seventeen Seventy (1770), QLD

Yehhhhh, we hit the East Coast... So nice to swim in the sea again. We parked up at 1770 for two weeks, it is beautiful, right on the water. We've managed to find the local op shop, fruit farm (where you can pick your own strawberries), beautiful sunsets, few waves at Agnes Waters, diving at the point for some dinner.

Crafting madness here, we've gone origami mad, we've made a big piece of rainbow felt and we are stitching our Christmas Advent calendar, a little bit each day. Music madness too.... Ross' guitar playing is coming along nicely.

Our favourite locals in the area were a couple of girls riding horses around Agnes Waters. They had stopped in at the Agnes Waters Beach cafe, and then proceeded to jump back on their horses, with takeaway coffees...
