Sunday, part two

Every year there is an annual Yarawa Gardens Christmas Party at our neighbors. The tradition has been going on since 1974! Santa comes in on a fire truck and hands out gifts to all the children. Poor Santa, it was 100 degrees outside! Here is a few videos and pictures of yesterday’s Christmas party.

Sunday, part one

We had a big Sunday yesterday. First off Bryce and I were asked to judge the annual Yarawa Pony Club fancy dress parade. It started at 9am. Cooper started vomiting at 8am so Bryce decided to stay behind and I would take the girls. On our way out the door Lola threw a fit so I made her stay home. So it ended up just being Bella and I. It actually worked out because it was very hot out at 9 am and I don’t think cooper would have liked it. Bella and I had a great time. Here are some pics of the horses.

Lola’s Kindy

Lola is headed to kindy this January. Kindy in Australia is like preschool back in the states. Yesterday they had an open house for all the parents and kids to meet. Here are a few photos of her school. Completely different than anything you would see in Omaha!

Good thunderstorm

One of the things I missed from the past Nebraska summer was the thunderstorms. Well, last night Australia didn’t disappoint. Here are a few pics of the clouds above my house. Are there any weather nerds out there that can explain to me how Australia doesn’t get tornados? Last night was a perfect storm for one. I’m glad Brisbane doesn’t get tornados though because I live in a glass house.

This photo was taken from my kitchen. Door and screen wide open listening to the rain and thunder! Better than sitting in the garage back home, right Lori?
