10 on 10 Photography Circle - December

When you do a monthly project it really highlights how damn fast the months go!!!
Here we are at the 10th of the month again, time for our 10 on 10 photography project where a group of us share 10 pics from an hour, a day, a week...or if you're like me from pretty much whenever!!!

Those of you who follow me on Facebook would know that there's not much Christmassy happening around here at the moment as we move furniture from one room to another!  

But I have not missed a single month of the 10 on 10 photography circle...and long time readers will know that I usually can't stick with anything!!!  So for fear of missing out on this month I grabbed my iPhone, scrolled through the camera roll and ta-da...I present you with my November highlights!!!

Once you've checked out my chaotic life be sure to pop over to the next member of the group and then make your way around the circle!

We went to the Circus!!!  And this is the only photo that I still had on my phone...the others were no doubt deleted to make way for other photos!!! 

The last time we went to the circus was about 12 years ago and I have wanted to take the girls for ages but well.....expensive much !!!!  So when The Great Euro Circus came to town and set up in the grounds of where my sister works and she got free tickets and gave them to us....OMG awesome!!!!  It was amazing....and the tickets were for the night of Miss 7's birthday so bonus!!

Having rushed to eat dinner and get to the circus we then headed home for birthday cake at like 10pm...because you know, 7 year olds will not compromise!!!

That weekend Miss 11 went on a 2 night girl guides camp.  I have no idea what she is doing in this photo!!!  But she packed up her bedroll and off she went!!

Same weekend Miss 17 and I went formal dress shopping for the first time and a week out from the formal...eek!!!  We did not take after photos because they would not have been pretty!!!  

Same weekend, coz we love to cram everything into one action packed weekend....yep that's how we roll!!  Soccer presentation for Miss 17 (it is actually the day of her birthday so from here on she will be miss 18!!), Miss 16 and Miss 14.  The pic is of the coach (hubby lol !! ) giving miss 16 her trophy for being players player...woohoo!!!

Yep same day, home for dinner with the in-laws for Miss 18 and Miss 7's birthdays!  And Miss 18 doesn't like cake so a cheats pavlova base purchased from Woolworths after presentation it was!

A few days later Miss 16's year 10 formal!!  Quite a transformation for our jeans and batman boots wearing gal!!

And the very next freaking day!!!  Miss 18's year 12 formal!!  In the rain!!!  But we were prepared!!  By the way what she is wearing is actually a dress with a skirt over it!! Yep it's the dress in photo #6 from last months 10 on 10 photography circle  and the heaviest tulle skirt ever!!

And right up there as a highlight for November I discovered that you can cook bacon in the oven....OMG this is totally revolutionary!!!  Pop it on an oven tray, into a preheated oven at about 200 degrees celcius, 15 mins later crispy bacon!!  

And this is not's actually dinner...but they should just be thankful that they got food at all!!!!

And to end November we had to drive an hour and a half to Wollongong Uni for Miss 18 to receive and award for her year 12 design and tech major work.  She won overall best product runner up!  Then we drove an hour and a half home again!!  

I think I may have caught a glimpse of the ocean for a millisecond on the decent down Mount Ousley...or maybe I dreamt it!!

So there you have it....November!!!  No wonder I was tired and broke!!!!

Be sure to pop over and see what Cathy has been up to this month....she never fails to impress me with her photos!!  Just click here to see them!

And don't forget to make your way around the circle!!
