It's a rare thing for Dale to spend money on himself so it was nice to see several new books arrive for him this morning.

Annabelle collected these flowers and sticks on our walk home from school this morning.

We enjoyed lunch with the Officer family. Ben is getting so big now. Annabelle enjoyed giving him lots of cuddles.

We visited Grant and Jenna for dinner and I spied these gorgeous flowers (Magnolias I think Jenna said) in the garden.

Some craft goodies I ordered to make little people for Annabelle's dollhouse.

There was a talk on Aboriginal people at school today so Callum got his face painted. He wasn't too impressed with having his photo taken though!

Callum and Dale playing Trackmania (car racing) on the computer while Annabelle waits for her turn.

For the last couple of months we have been watching some extra DVD's. I found it is much easier to have them delivered via Quickflix as there are no time limits for returning them and we always have something available if we decide at the last minute to watch a movie.

We all dressed nicely for Nan's 90th birthday party and then I attempted to get a photo of Callum and Annabelle together. I got a photo, but it wasn't quite what I had expected!

Annabelle pretending to be all quiet, sweet and innocent. She isn't fooling anyone!

Annabelle and I have been painting tins and boxes to use as storage in the craft/toy room. We used the excess paint to create the paint monster picture in the background.

Dale and I took a huge load of rubbish to the tip. The concrete was from the back yard and the balustrades from the front yard.

Our accommodation in Canberra was a 2 bedroom apartment with a separate loungeroom and a bigger television than we have at home.

Callum and Annabelle loved Questacon. They spent ages in the children's section and got wet playing in the water. Callum was in awe of the bucket that filled with water as he wound the handle.

My favourite part of our trip to Canberra was visiting the native bird aviary. The birds happily sat on our arms, heads and hands to eat the apple slices. Callum and Annabelle were scared of the birds, although Callum got game and let one land on him near the end of our visit.

Callum's last soccer match for the season was against Albion Park. Despite Callum's best efforts his team were beaten 6-4.

Friday, August 13, 2010

Kim came to visit for lunch and some crafting. I think Annabelle got more done than Kim and I did!

Annabelle's modern day version of Noah's Ark perhaps? Not sure who let the sheep pilot though!

Every Wednesday afternoon I have been getting to school early to help prepare the afternoon tea for the After School Sport program.

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Annabelle erased Tasha's message to draw a picture of 'My Mummy and Daddy'. Apparently I'm the one at the top and Dale's the bottom one.

Monday, August 9, 2010

Before she left on Saturday Tasha wrote us a nice message on the blackboard. Such a sweet girl!

Annabelle's favourite reading spot is in the front entrance way. She generally sits on the floor in front of the bookcase, but today she found a nice spot in the bookcase instead!

Saturday, August 7, 2010

Kyle, Tasha and Cathy came for lunch. We all enjoyed having several games of Flippin' Frogs.

Friday, August 6, 2010

Annabelle pretending to be asleep with teddy. It is very rare that she does sleep during the day.

Callum lost his first tooth!

Callum and I had a few extra guests at afternoon tea today who enjoyed sharing our biscuits.
