You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

Hello Hello 2010!  I think I love you already.  The weather on your first 2 days!  Hello?  Keep it up.

We saw in the New Year Rhodes Family style as we did last year, but with children who were fast asleep as the fireworks blasted in the New Year – Success!

Let’s say good bye to 2009 shall we?

January - The Summer of Fish - Dave's hunting & gathering really came into it's own this summer during The Jacks Go Camping '09

February - The Year of Prizes - My first prize extravaganza led us to the VIP section (which was just us really) at Summer Series and tonnes of free food, wine and cellphones! Hooray 95 bfm

March - We celebrate Greer & KC's wedding in style in Matakana
April - Summer winds down, I turn 30 and we prepare to leave the suburbs
May - New house rules, winter sucks and Ethan loves his 1st soccer team, The Wizards
June - It keeps getting colder, Bush visits and Ethan starts new kindy
July - I get a job (yay-ish), we otherwise hibernate, cook, make sushi and E scores a bajillion goals
August - Daddy's birthday, Jim moves to the farm and Hadyn leaves for his first contract on the big ship
September - Spring appears for a moment and Ethan learns to ditch his training wheels
October - Dave loses a tooth, Ethan catches his BIGGEST fish ever
November - E turns 5, starts school, mummy cries
SUN SUN SUN and Santa arrives on a ride-on-lawnmower, Blissful New Zealand Christmas with family

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
