Daylight Savings - YAY!!

I can't wait until Sunday - DAYLIGHT SAVINGS STARTS!! The girls have been waking up at the crack of dawn and it's killing me! Actually, I must admit I haven't been getting up at 5.45am when Ashleigh does - I put her in front of tv with one of her favourite videos and she's good for another hour!

I wonder how many people are going to be late for things on Sunday? It'll be interesting!

We're getting ready for Halloween on Tuesday. I've got outfits for the girls and we're going trick-or-treating! We didn't have much luck last year but we'll keep trying! If all else fails I'll just keep a stash of lollies at our house!

We're going out tonight - girlies and kids night! The boys are going to the Motor Show together so Joe and Mum and I are going to McDonalds with the kids for dinner! Ashleigh is really looking forward to it!

Well, I'd better run. Take care everyone!

Ashleigh is off school again today. She was home sick on Friday vomitting and last night she came into our bedroom saying she was going to vomit and sure enough, she did - lucky she made it to the toilet. I don't know what's going on with her - maybe she's allergic to school because she was fine all weekend! I managed to get some photos of her on one of her good days.

We are all doing well otherwise. There's not much to report on. We've just been really busy doing normal day to day stuff - nothing exciting.

I'll report back when there's something interesting to report on! In the meantime, take care everyone!

We had our first experience with texta on surfaces it shouldn't be this week! Lauren decided to take a green texta to our carpet on Tuesday. Needless to say we weren't too thrilled - luckily it was a washable texta and we were able to get it out! She is turning into a real monster lately but we're kind of happy to see it strangely enough. It's good to see that she is developing and starting to talk more! We are still taking her to the Occupational Therapist once a week and it seems to be helping.

Ashleigh is doing really well at school this term. Her writing has improved dramatically since getting glasses! She is really looking forward to Christmas - aren't we all! She has already started writing her list and checking it twice! We just need to work on the naughty and nice!!

We found out that Aunty Mandy got engaged to her boyfriend Richard and we're very excited! Ashleigh ALWAYS seems to call Richard Jared even just one minute after we correct her and tell her his name is Richard! I guess he looks like a Jared to her! CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS Amanda and "Jared"!!

I'd better go - I've got a party in Wollongong to do tonight and I've got to pack my bags!

Here are some recent photos of the girls. We've been really busy lately, I don't have time to scratch myself.

Here are some photos of Lauren sitting on our bed eating her favourite ice block "Tropical Calippo". Don't even TRY taking it off her to wipe her sticky hands - she'll go you!!

Dusk at Balmoral

Here are some (bad) photos of our night at Balmoral with Todd, Sam and Olivia. It was fffffrrrreeezing! The girls enjoyed feeding the birds!
