Look out Nate, Annabelle has found a new man in her life - your brother Benjamin!

A belated birthday present from Cathy of some gorgeous soaps.

Annabelle and Callum having their first sleep-over together in the loungeroom. It was a huge success!

Monday, October 4, 2010

Dale had the day off work (public holiday) so Annabelle and I took him out for big person's morning tea (normally named big girls morning tea but renamed today for Dale's benefit!) .


Sunday, October 3, 2010

Dale and I took Callum to see the play Tashi at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre. He loved it. He even got to have his photo taken with Tashi.

Lately I have been doing lots of Ebay auctions to get rid of our excess stuff as well as on behalf of friends (for commission).

My mess room. I'm not sure what happened but it's not making me a happy girl. Stay tuned for an updated photo once I get it cleared out and cleaned up.

Callum and Annabelle enjoying a cuddle with their Granny.


Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Annabelle would have made a good big sister. She loves babies. She was very excited to have dinner with Timothy and his family and kept giving him big squeezy cuddles and declaring "He loves me!".

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Annabelle took the idea of dunking her milk arrowroot biscuit a little too far. This experiment in how soggy the biscuit would get was abandoned once the biscuit was deemed irrecoverable!

Monday, September 27, 2010

My 33rd birthday. Dale brought me home some gorgeous roses and a chocolate cake.

Sunday, September 26, 2010

At Callum's soccer presentation day Annabelle got her first ride on the 'chair ride'. She loved it and went several more times.

Saturday, September 25, 2010

Annabelle's relaxed style of eating - foot on the table and food going everywhere. (She was asked to remove her foot from the table after the photo was taken!).

Friday, September 24, 2010

In the school play Callum was again cast as the narrator. He was hidden from sight behind the lectern but his voice was loud and clear.

An ice-cream cone for afternoon tea makes two children very happy indeed!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

After disappearing for four weeks to get serviced the sewing machine has finally returned!

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

New Tupperware. Anything to do with organisation always makes me happy!

Monday, September 20, 2010

Annabelle has been sick for a few days with a headcold so we bought her 'special Dora tissues'.

Sunday, September 19, 2010

A combined garage sale with the next door neighbours saw me $85 richer and our house a lot cleaner!


Saturday, September 18, 2010

My very first felt animal. A cute little lion that I gave to my brother Grant for his birthday.

Friday, September 17, 2010

Annabelle and I had lunch and a play at a park. Annabelle (who makes friends with anything/anyone) made friends with the Loch Ness Monster.

Thursday, September 16, 2010

A 'Callum train'. This is a common sight at the moment. Annabelle grabs hold of Callum's waist and they steam around the house together.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

I've been cooking more vegetarian meals lately. A fresh vegetable and rice noodle stirfry was a hit with everyone, even if the kids focused mostly on the noodles!

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Annabelle and Nathaniel at playgroup. I love how relaxed they are with each other.


Monday, September 13, 2010

Our new after-school activity for Mondays - going bike and scooter riding at the PCYC. Annabelle is starting to pedal well by herself and Callum is learning how to balance on the scooter while moving forward.

Sunday, September 12, 2010

Dinner out at Shelly's Cafe in Shellharbour. Ahhh... pizza twice in one week!

Saturday, September 11, 2010

Fresh snow peas growing in the garden. Very few have been making it inside the house as we have all been eating them straight off the vines.

Friday, September 10, 2010

A quick trip to the local library after school netting us a big pile of books and DVD's. I love the expression on Annabelle's face!

Thursday, September 9, 2010

The nicest macaroni cheese ever. Filled with vegetables and topped with pumpkin seeds. Yum!

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Dale took a day of annual leave to finish off some of the 'odd jobs' around the house. We also went out for lunch.


Tuesday, September 7, 2010

Annabelle and Nathaniel dancing to the music at a local playcentre.

Monday, September 6, 2010

I was supposed to take a photo of the delicious homemade pizza we had for dinner, but I forgot until after we'd eaten it. So this is my pizza stone!

Sunday, September 5, 2010

Happy Father's Day to the best Daddy I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Saturday, September 4, 2010

The latest family craze is a Humpty Dumpty version of Jenga. Even Dale was surprised when Annabelle managed to remove a very tricky piece.

Friday, September 3, 2010

Washing basket boat races. Lots of fun, as long as you don't mind falling out a lot!

Thursday, September 2, 2010

I've been giving Callum vouchers for treats. Tonight he gave me a voucher for cuddles in return.

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Kathy and Monique (our next door neighbours) came over for dinner. Monique patiently played with Annie for ages.
