Linking up with Emma at The Beetle Shack for this weeks collection.

Finally having an unlimited internet connection means the kids are allowed to watch you tube.  

Watching "Robo Wars" together on the iPad.

Little people's feet.

Sienna doing some crocheting while enjoying some home made sausage rolls.

Bought and planted some new lavender in some empty pots.

And this one........OMG she's adorable.

From our local Farmers Markets.

The kids made this bird feeder.

Sienna put the bird feeder on a pole in the back yard after I needed more space to peg the washing.  We are loving the creative things Sienna is coming up with from recycling.

Linking up with Emma at The Beetle Shack for Weekly Stills.

Attending the Spina Bifida Charity 5km Fun Run the kids were so excited to do this for their 3rd year running.

This happy little runner (aka Sienna) was just about to run into me......she loved doing this race.

There she goes on the way back more than 3/4 finished alongside the Brisbane River.

The City Cat in the foreground with the Brisbane CBD in the background.

The Story Bridge which are those two peaks in the middle of the photo.  The park underneath that was the start and finish of the race.

Some lovely flowers along the way...note I walk with my camera, it's very casual for me but the kids take it seriously.

Some Life Be in it Games afterwards.

Last game of the AFL Season we had pouring rain and this was quarter time pep talk.

James :   5km Charity Fun Run James is in the blue shirt on the right and he completed the run in 23 minutes.

Sienna :  Put together a drumming kit with all her recycled materials and had a great time.  I even took a video of it which makes me laugh every time I see it.  Adorable.  Also I couldn't decide which photo but I loved the one of her planting out the lettuces as well.

Family :   5km Charity Fun Run which is our 3rd year we have done this to support Spina Bifida.


A bit late with this post however this is what happened in our life in Week 32 of 2014.  Linking up with Emma at The Beetle Shack.

This little birdie flew into our house via the garage door just as we were about to leave for school so we had him flying all around our house until we were able to get him to fly out the back.

A surprize package arrived before school from James and Sienna's interstate Grandparents.

They know the kids so well and this package was very thoughtfully put together by Nanny & Pop.

Our lemon tree as a few more lemons on it now thank goodness as I've only used one so far.

Sienna on the trampoline reading her new book from Nanny & Pop.

I found this on my study door and these notes are so precious to me.

James and Sienna trying some new pizza making skills by tossing them into the air.

Sienna's new pet lizard in the wheelbarrow.

Sienna with her new lizard which she played with for hours.

Meet the lizard....
