15 April

Today is our 16th Wedding Anniversary. On this day last year I looked like this!
35 weeks preggers! I am pleased to report that I have lost 18 of those 20kgs that I put on during that pregnancy! (I had actually lost the 20, but I am blaming myself for eating far too many choc Easter eggs in NZ the last few weeks!!)
I didn't get a chance to get photos of Lyndon and I today - it just hasn't worked out, but hopefully tomorrow Aaron will be able to take some of us :-)
16 years aye! Time really does go fast. I am sure it's speeding up as we get older.
Today this little guy did some crawling in the foyer.

And some walking with his trolley :-)
He's so funny wearing those wee crocs (they used to be Maddison's). He will walk for a bit then sit down and try hard to pull them off :-)

When Aaron got home from school the first thing he asked for was the "little computer" (i-Pad) so he could play "Angry Birds"! I would like to link you up to a video so you could hear just how ANNOYING the noise on this game is, but after looking at several links on You Tube I couldn't find any that were as bad as the actual game!!

Anyway they had a few goes each before I had to confiscate the i-Pad because they were fighting over who's turn it was!
The kids had their dinner at 5pm and were pretty much finished before Lyndon got home from work. I had cooked a roast meal for us and it was actually very nice to sit at the table and have adult conversation without having to deal with the kids every few minutes! :-) We should do that more often! heheee ;-) I even splashed out and got a bottle of sparkling grape juice from France! Was quite nice too! :-)

(That is broccoli hiding under all that cheese hehee)
I forgot to record this the other day too, so must do it now before I forget! We were having breakfast and Aaron is busy looking at Lyndon, then he says ...
Aaron - Daddy your hair is white! Why is your hair white?
Lyndon - That's what happens when you get old, get married and have lots of kids Aaron!
Aaron - Oh
Lyndon - Mummy's hair isn't white.
Aaron - Yeah, but yours is!
heheheee Love it. The expression in Aaron's voice with the "Oh" was so funny. I did think it rather good timing because it was the day before Lyndon's birthday :-) :-)
Now I am going to see if I can shuffle some papers on my scrap desk ... I have been having withdrawal symptoms! Haven't done any scrapping for over a month!
Thanks for visiting.

Happy Anniversary! Many more great years to come. And little Samuel is progressing so fast. It's amazing that we only read about his birth last year :) Have a great weekend!

Oh - Matt and I love Angry Birds too - it's highly addictive! Quite good for boring meetings too! Lovely looking dinner there - the good old Kiwi roast!
