Gwen made a lovely pincushion for me and filled it with her favourite pins.  =)

In the last two or three Tupperware parties I've been to I keep looking at this set of three bowls.  I bought two of the middle size bowls on a good deal a couple years and love them.  Then I decided last year to just get a set of two of the small bowls instead of this set of three mainly due to price.  Well, I'm always a sucker for the mystery pack so when I went to a party a couple weeks ago I had enough to buy the mystery pack and look what it was!!  the set of bowls I've been wanting!  YAY!!!  oh yeah, and a peeler and two sets of salad tongs (couldn't find the green ones for the picture) but they're just incidental.  haha

Uncle Jason came to visit.  He and Josh played some Mexican Train Dominoes with Catie, Emma and Beka.  Nathan just liked playing with the dominoes.  (you can't see him but he's beside Beka, blocked by Josh)

They say moms are almost always behind the camera and here we have the reason why.  haha.  I do have some good photos of our time at the zoo to post soon but how could I choose just one?  =)

Beka let Daddy pull her tooth!!

When we arrived at the H's on Friday evening we found a python up in the roof just outside their back door.  On Saturday we pushed the snake into a sheet and took it out to the fence and let it go.  Danny held the snake and let the kids have a pat.   it's just a little carpet python.  =)

We got the kids a camera to share.  Emma took this photo on the way to Brisbane.  She was documenting Naomi's first bottle.  It was just water with a bit of apple juice and Naomi was much more interested in chewing on the teat instead of drinking.  Maybe that's because her first tooth popped through sometime between then and Saturday afternoon!!

It was an exciting day in the house since we got new books from the book depository.  This is what I could find, there is another American Doll book, two more Mrs. Piggle Wiggle books and three more Mercy Watson books.  They're probably in bed with certain little girls.  =)

We're away for the long weekend (Show Holiday tomorrow plus Josh has an RDO on Monday).  Hopefully I'll have a chance to post photos as we go.  =)

 I had already put up Tuesday's photo when Josh brought me flowers.  awwww...

Great-Grandma gifted us her organ.  
(It actually has a nice bench to go with it but for some reason the kids switched it with the daggy {how do you spell that anyway--daggy, daggie?  hmmm} piano bench.)

Nate's been using this Cars bag to carry his cars around.  It's just a simple bag so no problem.  Today Emma showed him the hat and he loves it. ruffles for boys!!  Maybe I should open the seam and take the ruffles out?

Nate got a new frog from Grammy and Papa.  At first he wouldn't touch it (but he wanted it on his bed for naptime) and the girls got great fun out of chasing him with it.  Then he started holding it but only like in the first photo.  However, now he has good fun with it.  Even took it in the bath last night.  =)

Every couple of weeks after Saturday night showers we have to trim Catie and Beka's fringes.  Josh is better at it than I am.  =)

Naomi's first food~sweet potato, carrot and apple.  She wasn't sure what to think.  Sometime she liked it and sometimes she gagged.  I think she definitely preferred just chewing on the spoon.

late Christmas gift from Auntie Cassie and family =)

Nate fell on the trampoline and hit his head and bit his lip.  To help with the bleeding lip and settle him down I gave him an ice block and turned on Cars 2.  He must have been worn out to fall asleep in the middle of his favourite movie! =)

Outside chore time
Something tells me that Nathan enjoyed his more than the girls enjoyed theirs.

I know it's blurry but none of them turned out.  Anyway, instead of taking a photo I should've been telling her "no" and moving her.  Naomi is fascinated by the blue light on Josh's computer.  No matter where you put her down in the this main room she makes her way to the computer to touch the light.  We keep saying "no" but it sure doesn't faze her.  =)

Definitely not just one photo today but without the process the end result just isn't as satisfying.  
I LOVE the end result.
