Stormy night and lots of rain

Yesterday Nito arrived home yay!! Our deck out the back is finally finished so we decided to 'christen' it with a nice lamb roast with our friends. Then the rain came and kept coming, have a look:

Our completed deck!
Nitos home, the outdoor setting is on the deck and we are relaxing!
The rain came!
And kept coming!
But we need it - thumbs up!

Halloween Party

Even though Halloween is not until next Wednesday, we went to a Halloween Party last night. We don't really celebrate Halloween down here, although over the last few years it has become more popular. Of course nothing like the way it is celebrated in the US. Anyways here are a couple of photos:

There was a spooky little room with this character making spooky noises.

Ballerina dressed up as a Ninja and I just went as well a witch (as my kids would say, didn't really have to dress up too much for that!!)

A black and white version!

The pinata which are quite popular down here now at lots of different celebrations.

A couple of scary characters!


We had a fun night - and it was a full moon and very stormy - lots of lightning and thunder, so a very good night for a Halloween Party.

Enjoy your weekend.

Photo Hunters #32 - Pink

With a ballerina in the Family, pink was always going to be easy. So I decided on something different: The photos below are of PINK at her recent concert on the Gold Coast and of course Ballerina and myself at the concert.

Enjoy your weekend!

A quote for the day

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
George Bernard Shaw

So start creating - don't waste time finding yourself, you may not like what you find. Create the person you want to be before it's too late - you'll have a lot more fun along the way and life will be more enjoyable!!

Photo Hunters #31 - Practical

Plenty of stuff around the place that is practical - but definitely taken for granted. So I offer you these practical pictures:

The first our cookbook holder. Very practical when reading from a recipe - this was a Fathers Day present for Nito - he loves to cook!!

And my favourite - waterless soap or hand sanitiser!! Very practical to have in your handbag, in the car or just around the house!

Enjoy your weekend!!

Viva Las Vegas

So what do an Australian couple holidaying in Las Vegas do on a Sunday afternoon? Renew their wedding vows with Elvis of course!!!

Yes as you know we are travelling to the US in December. We are spending 5 nights in Las Vegas and it just wouldn't seem right if we didn't renew our vows with Elvis - so we are!

Can't wait - it will be so much fun and such a giggle.

Our poor kids of course say AGAIN!! as Nito and I have renewed our vows before - in a more serious ceremony on a cruise ship. But this time it will be all in good fun and a real giggle - and we get a pair of Elvis glasses each - yay!!

Ballerina is excited because we get picked up in a Limo from our Hotel!

Anyways - still a few weeks away - but you will all definitely see photos when we get back.

Enjoy your day!
