September
The month of September seems to have flown past. It is hard to remember what we have done...it is all a blur. There have been birthdays, a trivia night, trips to the movies etc.
Two events I do remember (because they were last weekend) were cause for celebration.

Pam and Alex helping Lucas blow out the candles.

Our nextdoor neighbours had a picnic at Bicentennial Park to celebrate Lucas turning two. The weather was perfect, and it was lovely meeting a whole new group of people. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable time, and a perfect setting for kids! http://www.sydneyolympicpark.com.au/

Last Sunday we attended an afternoon tea to celebrate Rachel and Victor's engagement. They will be getting married in Port Macquarie during December. Madeleine and Lauren are very excited about being flower girls on the day.

Other fantastic news is that tomorrow is my last day of work for ages. I (Jenny) am taking long service leave. That, plus the Christmas school holidays, means I have about 17 weeks off! Am VERY pleased! I have lots planned to do. Watch this space....

September in the Garden
We have had a Tawny Frogmouth owl in our backyard for the past few days. Apparently it is their nesting time at the moment, so maybe it will be around for a while. There eat all sorts of insects, spiders, frogs and other small birds.

The garden is smelling lovely with all the fresias out.

There are a lot of warm colours with the nasturtiums, clivias, daisies and roses flowering.

Artwork by Lauren
Lauren churns out reams of pictures on a daily basis. If I saved them all we would need to add an extra room on the house.
For the purposes of adding a picture to the profile, I need to post it first...hence this drawing is here.
