A day in the life of William

On Monday and Tuesday the boys take life slowly. William takes 2 long naps and won't be happy until he's had his baby chino.

When it was freezing they stayed inside with coughs and colds and drove their Dad a little bit crazy with the playdoh. After I showed Stu this picture below he said, 'Can you see all of those playdoh crumbs?!'

He loves the playdoh and chats to himself while he works. Jack is excited everytime he comes up with a new word. He can say, Juice, Bye bye, Baby, Tar, Jack, Dad, No, Yes, What's this, Shoes, Mum, Rose, toot toot, tickle tickle, dog, cat, woof, hello, dums, don't, there go, there is, cheese, fish and OH NO!

His favourite dessert is custard on banana.

He is a gorgeous boy when he isn't sitting on his brother's head and bossing us all around. ;)

Snow Day

After a rough start to the morning with 2 cars refusing to start we finally made it to soccer. Dad took this team photo.

Poor Dad was off work with terrible hay fever so we decided to drive up the mountain to check if there was any snow and the boys were thrilled to find heaps of patches left from the big dump of snow that came on Wednesday.

We had a sausage sandwich for lunch and built a snow man.

It was actually warm for the snow. We got hot wearing the big coats. What a gorgeous day!

Family Complete

The last family photo was quite some time ago.

I love the way our new family portrait is posed. Stu has his 'mini me' and I've got mine. I love my boys so much and the photos I'll keep forever. When they grow up and it's just me and Stu I'll think back to these days and remember all the chaos and the fun.

These pictures were actually taken after we've had a bad run. Stu was off for a week with tonsillitis. William was diagnosed with asthma and bronchitis. Jack had a UTI and blood tests and I have pernicious anemia and need B12 injections for the foreseeable future.

I am beginning to hate winter. If it wasn't for the hot chocolates, snow on the mountains and beanies I think I'd move north :)

Jack's First Project

Jack was excited to bring home the 'Preschool Family Book.' Each of the kids get a chance to bring the book home and write about their family. Jack used the paper trimmer to cut out all of the photos and he carefully selected the pictures he wanted to use. We probably could have filled the whole book so there was some 'culling' to fit it all on 2 pages.

Click on the photo to see the whole page.

He can't wait to give his talk on Wednesday!

Another day at the office

I left my babies over night to take some of my favourite teenagers to Camp Birrigai. It was FREEZING and -4 over night. During the day it wasn't much warmer with the wind factor. But there was a raging camp fire, no computers, no mobile reception and plenty of serenity.

I was so proud of 6 of my students (AND ME!) climbed the 'leap of faith' and jumped 7 meters off this platform into mid air to touch the ball.

They also scaled the 'vertical playpen' and the biggest flying fox I have ever seen!

In between the adventure there was delicious food, billy tea and damper.

I love my job.

Happy Birthday Molly

Molly turned 3 today and she loved the Tinkerbell outfit and high heel shoes that we picked for her.
It was a freezing day and only 5 degrees but the kids didn't mind. The fire was toasty and there were bubbles everywhere.

William particularly enjoyed his first red frog and he loved the pink cupcakes that Nanna made.

Molly loved her cake and gave all the kids a turn to blow the candles out. The party was followed by a birthday dinner of party pies, sausage rolls and chicken wings.

Warm as toast

This is how much he loves his Dad.

Mum hopes they are always so studious.
