Hi everyone, we’ve had a super busy week and haven’t had time to do a blog!
We had a BIG pre christmas party with all our cousins at our Uncle Roberts house. It was a hot day and there was a smimming pool set up and lots of water guns. We had a BBQ and me and Elliott got really sunburnt!
On Sunday Uncle Craig helped me saddle up the pony and I went for a ride which was really nice : )
Granny took us for a drive the other day and we stopped to look at the Blue Lake.
We’ve been to a really cool play ground down in the valley lakes with our cousin and walked through the nature park where we saw kangaroos and kookaburras and two red chickens that someone must have abandoned in there!
Yesterday was christmas day. When our little cousin Brodie woke us up at 5.30 we found lots of presents under the christmas tree : )
After opening them we had some breakfast and then went outside to play cricket in the back yard.
We ate christmas lunch outside under
the veranda because it was too hot to sit in the sun.
Today we are going to Beachport for a week. Beachport is a tiny little fishing village about 2 hours from here. I hope to catch lots of fish and eat some lobster. We got a new boogie board for christmas, so hopefully they’ll be lots of big waves.
There’s no internet connection at the beach so our next blog will be in 2013.
Ciao a tutti, Tom & Elliott

Doug and the Horseshoe

Whenever earn would press the burning-hot horseshoe into the foot of the horse, this smoke would billow up in an amazing cloud. The reason they do this is to see how the shoe fits before going back to make a few adjustments. The whole process was awesome to watch, as you can see. I felt like I was time traveling!
