Toby is an Aussie!

Our Australian friends - don your thongs, raise your stubbies and throw another shrimp on the barbie - our Toby is no longer a stateless baby, he is a bona fide Australian citizen. Hooray! Mummy and daddy are so proud of baby and country they could bust. Now give us a passport and let us get the heck out of here!

Advance Australia Fair

Australians all let us rejoice
For we are young and free
We've golden soil and wealth for toil,
Our home is girt by sea
Our land abounds in nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and rare,
In history's page let every stage
Advance Australia fair,
In joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia fair.

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross,
We'll toil with hearts and hands,
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands,
For those who've come across the seas
We've boundless plains to share,
With courage let us all combine
To advance Australia fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia fair.

I love all my Australian friends, but please, if "thongs" means the same thing there as it does here (underwear with "floss" in back), please don't post any photos!

Seriously, congrats on being almost done. I loved reading the lyrics to the National Anthem!
