All I want for christmas is.....

Forgot to add yesterday that whilst in Palmerston on a school trip, we came across hana koko so it was photo shoot time.
We then had to wait 5 very LONG minutes for Miss T to tell Hana Koko what she wanted for christmas. Just as well he wasn't going anywhere LOL she was very 'in' to telling him her list..


Hunting and fishing comp weekend.....

Anyway here are a few pics of the Houpapa Hunting Crew ;-) The pig getting a tummy rub next to lil miss T is our pet, affectionatey known this week as Oinks Houpapa.

An exciting weekend here as both the kids had a hunting competition in which they had to get a turkey, eel, hare, rabbit, possum and an eel for the Norsewood hunting competition. It was a busy weekend for their daddy taking them both out hunting until dark in the hope that they would catch the big one. All in all they did quite well and Mr T came home with a spot prize with miss T managing to ge 2nd in the possum and a whopping 1st for her 7.35kg turkey much to husbands delight.

Mummy of course clapped the loudest and was most impressed with my little hunters. Of course all the rabbits/hares that were shot are now in the deep freeze ready for cooking. They asked us to leave the eel there and the possum, however miss T wasn't having a bar of it and carried her possum across the paddock into the back of the truck LOL. And miss T with her prizes, daddy is OH so proud.

the latest haul

well I have been a busy little bee this weekend at our craft weekend and have managed to finish the 2 wool swaps and my xmas decorations for a swap amongst friends. Have been relaxing today as the next 2 weeks I am going to be hard out at work and probably not get enough time to craft. I SERIOUSLY love the wool I dyed and am finding it really hard to part with it. Both DH and I have been busy as he has been working on his project. I am seriously impressed with it and have been for a blat in it with DH although I'm not allowed to drive yet LOL. Been an intersting couple of weeks for me with rabbit shooting and bonding with DH (thanks mum) as we were childless for a weekend and I had the greatest time with him. ANyway here is Dh with his project and our son Mr T his wee helper.
