Goodbye Louie the Fly :-)

{sponsored by Nuffnang}


Recently I was lucky enough to be chosen to try out the Mortein Automatic Outdoor insect control system.  It could not have come at a better time what with Christmas just two days  away
                
We have had a slight issue with mosquitos and flies in our outdoor entertaining area of late so this was going to be a great spot to try the Naturgard Automatic Outdoor Insect Control System before all the relatives rock up on Christmas Day.  

There is nothing worse that enjoying the beautiful weather we have up here in Queensland only to have it ruined by those pesky annoying little critters.

Well I am impressed........ The mozzies are no more as well as those horrid little flies.  I am pleasantly surprised and incredibly happy that i have no mozzie bites anywhere. The best thing about this product is that I can now stay outside at dusk an enjoy not being harassed by insects.  

The other great thing about the Outdoor Insect Control System is that it is portable so I can enjoy sitting out the back of the house or around the front :-)

I have the unit set to spray a little burst every 40 seconds and it works a treat. I am also thankful that the unit turns itself off after 3 hours of use as I can get a tad forgetful sometimes.

The unit can protect a sheltered outdoor area of 5m x 5m and   has a plant based active ingredient. 

Thank you Mortein and Nuffnang

Good Bye Louie and Friends

We have been so busy lately what with Christmas parties and family and friends visiting.  We had the Make a Wish Christmas party last weekend. The Hard Rock Cafe were once again BRILLIANT in providing the location and food.  They do this at least two times a year.  Wonderful business.

We had a great time but all too soon it was over.  We went home and had a rest as that afternoon Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary were hosting their Christmas party also.  Stuart and Jacob decided to stay home so Emma, Brittany (cousin) and I headed off on our own.  We had such a fun time.  The girls loved feeding the kangaroos.  Didn't get any good photos from there.  

The wonderful Andrea Thompson  (photographer extraordinaire) came out to our home and took some more photos for us.  Andrea is absolutely beautiful and such an amazing photographer.  Make sure you head on over to her 
web page and take a look.  





These are just a few of the shots taken on the day.  There are WAYYYYYY more but I really do not want you to be bored to tears.  

Emma is doing ok.  Her tumour is still growing and it looks bigger and bigger every time you see it.  I am still praying madly that God will give us a Christmas Miracle this year. You just never know..........  
We are all looking forward to Christmas day.  We are having lunch here at our home again this year.  There are going to be a total of 25 of us.... It is so much fun when you have that much family around.  The kids get all excited and the mums and dads just sit around eating and chatting for most of the day.  My decorations this year are turquoise and silver.   Loving turquoise this season.

Was lucky enough to be selected by Nuffnang Australia  to test the 

Mortein NaturGard Automatic Outdoor Insect Control System

Couldn't have come at a better time as we have had so many mosquito's around the outside area of late.  I am thinking that it has a lot to do with the weather we have been having.   I will be back in another post to tell you all about it and to give you my opinion.

Can you believe that there are only 3 more sleeps until Christmas 2012???  This year has gone super fast and they just seem to be getting faster each year.  I am hoping that you all have the most joyous of Christmases and remember why we are celebrating this season.  I will give you a little hint - it is not about the presses.........it is about the birth of a little baby boy thousands of years ago

God Bless, stay safe and have a Merry Christmas
