Annabelle and three Bob the Builders having a nap. It must have been a hard day building!

Friday, May 28, 2010

She's a daredevil! Annabelle decided it would be funny to go down the slide backwards.

Time to shake off a few kilos, so I joined Calorie King online to keep me accountable for what I eat.

A loaf of homemade bread went nicely with dinner.

The view from the park that Annabelle and I were playing in. A gorgeous old tree, the urban surroundings and the ocean in the background. I love where we live!

A homemade roast dinner. I don't make them often, but they are always a hit with everyone.


Sunday, May 23, 2010

I sewed a library bag for Annabelle and a tote bag for myself from a $1 quilt cover I bought at the op shop.

Saturday, May 22, 2010

Callum and Annabelle both ended up sick. :(

Friday, May 21, 2010

My new perfume arrived. I haven't had a new one since 2003!

Thursday, May 20, 2010

You can always tell when I am feeling overwhelmed - the kitchen is a mess.


Wednesday, May 19, 2010

In an attempt to cheer up the sick Annabelle I gave her a donut star for afternoon tea. She wasn't interested at all, and Callum and I ended up sharing it.

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Callum might be six but he still loves Doggy. Tonight Doggy came to dinner and enjoyed some pasta!

Monday, May 17, 2010

Two big clues here that Annabelle is sick. (1) She is asleep during the day. (2) She didn't eat her lunch. Poor Annie.

Benjamin with his proud godparents. :)

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Running races in the backyard. Callum likes to win. Annabelle just likes to have fun.

Friday, May 14, 2010

Love self portraits! Annabelle was too fascinated with the camera in her hands to be looking at mine!

Thursday, May 13, 2010

I mowed the next door neighbours lawn (for $50!).

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

A simple thing for most people, but Callum was thrilled to get new sheets for his bed. Plain blue ones. The teddy bear patterned ones are finally gone!

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Dale had the day off work so Annabelle got to enjoy some quiet play time with Daddy.

Monday, May 10, 2010

Annabelle doing 'sticking'. I know it's been a previous photo, but I see this sight a lot!

Sunday, May 9, 2010

Mother's Day at Granny's house. Dale was there but he was behind the camera!

Saturday, May 8, 2010

Callum and Grandpa discover a new game - mini cricket using plastic pieces from the board game 'Trouble'.

Friday, May 7, 2010

Annabelle complained that some custard had spilled, so Dale suggested she lick it up! Oh dear!


Thursday, May 6, 2010

I finally tried the sewing machine. My first creation is a set of 2 napkins that Callum and Annabelle happily claimed as theirs.

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Callum has 'reading minutes' every night before bed. Sometimes he reads to himself, other times he likes a parent to read to him. The current book is The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton.

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

Annabelle loves Alyson. Lots of love, attention and cuddles.

Monday, May 3, 2010

A new bundle of twine to use on cards.

Sunday, May 2, 2010

Annabelle has quite a love for Cookie Monster at the moment. Perhaps it is their common interest in food!

Saturday, May 1, 2010

Time to catch up on all the washing!

Friday, April 30, 2010

Annabelle fell over at daycare and gave herself quite a bruise and scrape.

Thursday, April 29, 2010

John the lady beetle was Callum's pet for 24 hours until we released him back into the yard.

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Annabelle sits and does the Winnie the Pooh puzzle and Thomas the Tank Engine puzzle every day. She could probably do them with her eyes closed now!

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

A visit from the Loats family meant lots of cuddles with baby Timothy.
