(I just realised that they're both the same brown/blue/green colour scheme! Sorry about that! I don't have anything else to share at the moment...)
We had Mum & Dad visit on Sunday. We hadn't seen them for a few weeks so it was great to catch up. Mum thought that Madi's hair looked a lot fairer than the last time she saw her... and that Riley has really shot up. (It's funny how you don't notice these things when you're with them all the time.) Both Mum & Dad also commented on how much better Ayden's speech has become too since he started school. (They find him so much easier to understand on the phone now.) They stayed most of the day and the kids just loved having them here.
Madi's two front teeth have FINALLY pushed their way through her gums! She's now got about 4 other top teeth trying to come down too... poor little thing. I can't wait until this teething business is all over - I'm sure she'll be a lot happier too!
Oh yeah...another thing I wanted record.... Whenever we give Ayden a banana as part of his lunch for school, it goes into a basket in the classroom as a mid-morning snack so we write his name on the side of it. A while ago we started drawing simple pictures next to his name - like a star or a smiley face which he liked to see everyday.... but lately Paul has been going all out with his pictures and they're really quite good!! Ayden loves them, and he has the coolest bananas in the class! So I thought I'd share some of Paul's 'Banana Art'! Here are a couple of his masterpieces...
Other than that not much else has been happening really... just the usual school runs and work.
I'm looking forward to the weekend though! Mum and I are heading up to the Papercraft Festival in Brisbane.... hopefully it will be worth the trip!
That's it from me tonight... I can hear the kettle boiling and the chocolate calling me from the fridge.....
