These past few weeks ...

Piano Lady

'painting' on the wall with water!

Last week we went to visit new baby  Harry too - SO cute! Genna was disappointed that he 'didn't have any hands' (because she wanted to gently touch his hand) lol - his hands were tucked into his outfit :)

And we had a GORGEOUS beach day - loving this warm Autumn weather!

Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi

Last Monday, Murray and I attended our citizenship ceremony

It was a nice ceremony, they had a student who sand 'I still call Australia home' and the National Anthem

We even got a picture with the mayor :)

Back at home, Helen had some gorgeous Aussie treats waiting for us - along with a big fancy Aussie flag!

Lamington - yummmm

Now Murray's a dual citizen, and I'm a tri citizen!! Exciting :)

The caramel slice was my favourite - OMG so good!!!

The next day Genna enjoyed some of the lamington too (ironically in her American t-shirt)

Happy Aussie / American :) I'm glad all 3 of us can now call ourselves Aussie!!
