We took a little day trip on our holiday break up to the hinterland town of Monteville, QLD.  Very charming with lovely little shops and fantastic views!

rain rain go away: bree

We had a week of non-stop rain! Thankfully we are back to mostly sunny, beachy weather here on the Sunshine Coast of Australia.  But a rain here and there is a great way to cool us off every now and again....just please not for a week straight!

When my mom and sister were visiting we took Aubrey to splash in some puddles and get some fresh air once the rain finally stopped. Needless to say she loved it!

selah & ziah : beach babies

Christen is another awesome mom that I have met here on the Sunshine Coast. Her and her husband are the leaders of a DTS (discipleship training school) here at the YWAM Sunny Coast.  Since the day we arrived they were so generous in making sure we had everything from toys to blankets for Aubrey, it was such a blessing and helped us settle in that much quicker.  Aubrey has really enjoyed trying to follow Selah around, and I have enjoyed getting to know Christen!  We had a little mini-session with them at Mudjimba Beach before they headed off to Canada for Christmas a few weeks ago.  We miss you guys and can't wait to hang out more when you get back to Oz!  Enjoy this little peek at your photos!
