Greetings my lovelies.
Welcome to 2017!
I have a photo heavy post for you with a sum up of our holiday break in pictures.
Firstly we have the family portrait...
notice I made them wait for a photo shoot before eating!
And here is the more relaxed shot showing our presents in the poppers.
We are playing word games. A lot of fun!
So Christmas dinner was cooked by Cris on the barbecue and oven,
while I swanned around looking glamorous. So what else is new?!
My Christmas outfit is shiny! All bought secondhand and worn with a gifted necklace.
I enjoyed exploring new colours. I think they look OK. Shock horror!
During our break the kids enjoyed more time with Dad.
Here they are teaching Dad to fly a plane.
He did better than I did...he got off the ground!
They also enjoyed freaking out Mum with a cicada shell!
A fun family time was had at Miles' home away from home...the Australian War Memorial.
Doesn't this plane have such a cute face, albeit worried or disapproving...?
Aiden takes some time out while waiting for Miles and Cris, to do some cartooning.
The mischievous trio.
The view from the front steps of the War Memorial, looking down Anzac Parade with all it's smaller memorial statues to Parliament House in the distance, across the lake.
And we all made it to the traditional fireworks for New Year's Eve.We've been a few years in a row to a far away vantage point that doesn't involve too many people.
We had fun with slow photography and sparklers.
(In the first photo we captured the little girl's efforts in the next family as well)
Can you see "Boi"?
So we had a fun family break, staying at home for a while.
It's been such a travelling year we enjoyed the change.
Gratuitous sunset photo from our back deck.
Please enjoy our latest video with bits and pieces from Leeway - our coast cabin.
Including an echidna, pelicans, pool acrobatics and my singing!
Til next time,
keep on creating!
Lots of love,
From Jazzy Jack and The Bracks
