Day 17 - Much concentration and accuracy was needed for this new game that the boys had thought up to play on the front footpath. A box full of wooden blocks formed the city that they would destroy with their mini Nerf guns - a gift from friends this Christmas.

This is where I seemed to lose a few days when it came to the photo-a-day project ... quite a few days actually. Not sure what happened but here is Day 14.
Day Fourteen - This was the month that Joshua really 'got it' when it came to swimming. He was trying new things and daring to take a chance in the shallow end of the pool. He found out today that two boogie boards were so much more fun that one.

Day Three - We started our holiday at the Gold Coast on January 3rd and as I looked around I knew this photo would be a regular sight while at the beach. Several times a day, the wet togs would be rinsed and hung outside to dry waiting to be worn a couple of hours later.

Day Two - Ethan needed a photo of himself for an art exhibition he had been asked to be a part of. I asked him how he might like to have his photo taken and this was one of his favourite images. Who doesn't love a good jump shot of themselves?

I had good intentions this year of participating in a fun challenge called Photo-a-Day or PAD to those in the know! It's designed to get you to photograph simple things in your daily life and certainly not meant to be difficult.
With one thing and another, it never happened every day but I thought you might like to see the days that I did take photos.
January 1 , 2011 - my kids had never played with a hose or the sprinkler due to the water restrictions in Brisbane, so on New Years Day when the neighbours called out to 'get your togs on', they were out in a flash. Light rain and the odd squirt of Morning Fresh detergent made this the best 'slip and slide' ever.

It's been a very sad start to 2011.
Major floods affected many parts of Brisbane and Queensland while we were holidaying with our family at The Gold Coast. It has been so upsetting to watch on the TV but even worse to see the devastation when we returned home. We are so fortunate to have personally not been affected but know of many who have. My thoughts and prayers are with those who suffered any loss and I hope that with all the incredible help and support that has been shown, life will return to some sort of normality as soon as possible.
On a happier note,
I'm excited to say that my new website and blog will be launching over the next couple of months. I have a new logo and I can't wait to show you how it looks. I have my talented friend, Eliza, to thank for it all - she is seriously one incredible girl.
The year haa started to fill with bookings already. There will be lots of images to see so please drop by and stay in touch.
And because it's no fun to have a post without a photo,
here are the canvases that arrived before Christmas for one of my lovely families - I can't wait to see how they look on their wall.
