About Us

My photo
We are the Pomario Family and we used to live in Johannesburg, South Africa. On the 10 July 2009 at 8.05 our little family grew to 3 when our precious daughter Natalia was born. We were blessed that she had chosen us to be her parents and we were privileged to have her in our lives. We believe she is here to teach us many lessons and give us plenty of joy. We relocated to Australia in April 2011. These are our stories……

Our Tree Is Up !!!

This is the first year that Natalia is more aware of Christmas and what it's all about. It's a lot more exciting when there are kids around and seeing it through her eyes is refreshing and precious. Christmas is for the kids!!!!

Norwood Christmas Parade

We went to the Norwood Christmas Parade this morning, on The Parade (that's what the street is called, so don't get confused). A freezing morning! Who would've thought that it would be a not so warm 16deg today? And pouring? We got there at 9am to get a good spot and view of the floats. The kids draw pictures on the tar with chalk and of course we had to do the same. Just after the parade started it came down in buckets; everybody in the parade was soaked, shame. We at least could find cover thankfully. It wasn't as good at the parade in the city; a much smaller budget I'm sure. It was fun to be out anyway and Natalia just wanted to see Santa.

Aeroplane Museum and Braai

After swimming class this morning we went to the Aeroplane Museum at the Parrafield Airport. We drive past the airport all the time and Natalia's loves looking at the aeroplanes. She can spot an aeroplane in the sky when we drive around, so Kim thought it would be nice to visit the museum. Natalia had a great time climbing into some of them and playing will all the switches. We might have a pilot on our hands ???

Adelaide Christmas Pageant 2011

It's a big event every year and we were all excited to see what it's all about. It starts at 9.30am but people line the streets of Adelaide as early as 7am to get front row seats. We only arrived at 8.30am so we had a lot of time to kill. All the kids draw on the streets with chalk and there's balloons etc. The pageant only reached us at 9.50am and the last float with Santa Claus went past at 11am. There were 1000 clowns, 68 floats and 26 bands. It was a huge turnout and very festive. A scorcher of a day, the sun beating down on us. Natalia and I were invited by a nice family to join them at the front. Nobody stood up in front of anybody. All the children in front remained seated, and the next row maybe kneeled etc. so everybody had a good view and respected the next person. It was a well organised event; something we are not used to. The floats were very well made and the highlight was of course Santa Claus. At first Natalia was petrified of the noise and sat on Kim's shoulders but when she got used to the commotion she came and sat with me in the front again...
Then later in the afternoon we went to a school fair up the road from Natalia's school. Natalia had a lot of fun there too. It was a busy busy day......
Common people, let's get going!
