Ella's new hair style

After many frustrating mornings trying to get Ella to sit still and let me brush her hair and having her scream at me that it hurts, I finally decided to get it chopped off.

I think she looks so cute now.

Check out the pics. I think she must have felt really good after getting her hair cut that she put on an impromptu concert for her dad and I in the lounge room. She is using her horsey (my cobweb broom) as her microphone.

It was easy to brush her hair this knots....yipeeeeee.

Another visit to Yamba

Well, we got back late Monday afternoon from another visit to see mum and dad in Yamba. It is great that they aren't too far away at the moment and we get to visit with them, especially little Ella. I can't believe that it was only on the way home in the car that I realised that I didn't take any photos......what a duffer!! Oh well, we did have a lovely weekend and Ella really enjoyed spending time with her nan and pop and she thinks Poppy Pingo is a lovely lady. How funny is that.

Ella loved playing on the stairs in the house and kept giving poor old nan a heart attack. Ella also loved telling everyone what she got up to on the toilet and that she had washed her hands. Very funny.

The weather let us down this time and it did stop us from doing some of the things we had planned. In the end it didn't matter as we had a lovely time anyway. We did get concerned on Monday morning that there may be some roads closed as it didn't stop raining at all on Sunday night.

When we drove through Ballina on the way home, there was one part of the Pacific Highway that had quite a lot of water over it. If we were any earlier we probably would have had to detour. I do just want to say that some people are just stupid when it comes to driving in the rain. Haven't they heard of driving to the conditions!! Very annoying. Needless to say, we did pass three car accidents on the way home. One was particularly bad and involved a truck jack knifing and nearly plunging off an embankment. That was only very lucky truck driver. I am sure there were quite a few people cursing him though as you should have seen the amount of traffic backed up.

Talk to you soon

My first time blogging

Hi and welcome to the Thomas Family blog. This is our first entry in what I hope to be an interesting blog for our friends and family to see what we are up to. It is difficult at times to be able to chat with everyone so I am hoping that this will be an avenue that will enable us to keep in touch.

Well, to get started, last weekend we travelled to Yamba to visit with my folks and my sister and her boyfriend. After a very interesting (and long) journey we arrived. We learn't a valuable lesson, don't put all of your trust in the GPS. They will really take you on some adventures it you let them. I really wouldn't have minded if it was day time, but driving through a mountain range in the dark and with fog rolling in really wasn't my idea of a great time!

It was lovely to see them as we haven't seen them since March last year. It was really beautiful to see our daughter Ella just take to her Nanna, Pop, Auntie and Uncle.

Also, I have to say a big thanks to my sissy for letting us use the magnificent house her and her boyfriend rented for the weekend. It was amazing and I could really get used to that lifestyle and especially the kitchen. Click here to see the house.

What made the weekend even more special was catching up with my cousin Cindy and her partner Steve and their two beautiful girls, Kelsey and Alina. I loved watching them interact with their little cousin Ella.

We also caught up with Aunty Sue, Uncle Alan, my cousin Alison, my Aunty Doreen and mum and dad's friends, Pingo and Patty.

It all seem to go really quickly and before we knew it we were back home. But, we loved being in Yamba so much that we are going back next weekend. Can't wait. This time there will be only my mum and dad there so it will be very quiet and relaxing.

See you next time.
