We found Ella and Grant’s van parked right outside our back door this morning.
They had arrived around midnight so I am glad I didn’t wait up for them.
Our children have played all day. It has been fun to watch the interaction between the age groups. Some pairing off now and others in different pairs later.
Megu sorted out the linen cupboards for me and then I taught her how to make Pavlova. She then made two pumpkin cakes.
The twins are climbing anything that stands still long enough for them to get a grip so finally I got Nathan to bring down some baby toys from the attic to side track them. It was really cute to watch them – they are starting to actually play together – Ava decided to play carpet crabs for the pic while Brianna was more involved in the toys.
I got quite a lot more cards made this morning and then after lunch Ella got my baby back pack and we took off out for some fresh air. We went up to see how Cat’s new extension was progressing.
Megu spent the afternoon painting – this is what the ‘cave’ looks like from the front.
and from the back
Cat showing us where the driftwood was going to go – it is all done now, she’s a fast worker. I will get a pic of it to show you tomorrow.
I was a tad late getting on to dinner.
So while Ella went down to The Cottage to get some food for dinner Nathan baby sat the twins.
I heard him comment that it wasn’t that easy with two – one would be far easier to handle-!!
He did a great job though of reading to them and keeping them relatively quiet.
They sure are busy wee girls.
Because dinner was late Nathan put ‘Flushed Away’ on for the children. We finally had a very yummy dinner and pavlova for desert.
We are expecting the electrician to come tomorrow so hopefully we will be able to use the spa real soon
On that note I think I should head off to bed – it is real late and all here have been sleeping for quite a while. It’s just begun raining again – we are getting some really nice gentle rain these past few days – and a southerly is pounding in on the beach. That should lull me off to sleep nicely
