Seeing in 2009..

We had a great night New Year's Eve.. we arrived in Surfers Paradise around 8pm & it was packed.. roads were closed off, something they do every year.. we found somewhere to park & then started our walk into the madness! People were everywhere in the streets, on the beach, grass areas along the sidewalk.. you name it they were there!! We ate gourmet pizzas for dinner ( they were divine!) walked around the shops & along the beach, we found some glowsticks for Sam & Tayla, Missy Mu had to have a crown :D of course, then we found somewhere to sit & wait for the big countdown. Sam had fun playing in the sand & chasing seagulls (one of his favourite things to do at the beach!!) & trying to jump over the waves, Roy went off to get coffee.. it only took him 3/4's of an hour to get back!! just in time for the countdown & the fireworks. The fireworks were kicked off on top of the Q1... then down to the barge out on the water.. it was definitely a spectacular show! I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve.. I wish each & everyone of you all the very best for 2009!! xx

Me & my sweet baby girl..

Sam wearing his glowstick around his head :D

Our little Princess..

Even the seagulls were out having fun :D

The fireworks.. always spectacular!

Yes I can understand that Tayla had to have a crown, All princesses should look the part and she is a stunning princess. I love the way Sam wore his glow stick. Your fireworks pictures are just spectacular. I wish I could take such wonderful shots.

What a great way to bring in the new year. My New Years Eve wasn't anywhere near as glamorous. I might just have to do a post on it. I love the pictures too.

Hi Tanya

Sounds like a perfect NYE - the beach, gourmet pizzas and the fireworks off the Q1 and on the water would have been spectacular.

You are so clever being able to capture such wonderful shots of the fireworks.

The photo of you and Tayla is gorgeous - the pair of you are stunning. All of your family is beautiful.

Lots of love and hugs
