Catching Up

Been missing in action around this blog! We have finally found a bigger place to live. Fingers crossed now that it all goes through and we can move on the dates I want!
.
It's more than double the size of our current place. :-)

Oh and the wet kitchen is red! I likely :-)
Outside it has the usual pools, kids playground etc., but it also has space for the kids to ride their bikes and a skateboard ramp! (I haven't told Aaron about that yet hehee)
Aaron has been studying fairy tales at school the last few weeks. They have learnt a "fairy tale rap" which their teacher wrote and the parents were invited to go and listen to them. It was fantastic, they did such a great job. They had to wear "rapper" clothes to school! Aaron just wore his hat backwards! But some of them had great costumes. One little boy wore all black and had a hot pink sequined scarf and hat on and dark sunglasses - he was hilarious. They had also made magic mirrors!
On the back they had a little plastic pocket with a whole lot of words they could choose ... this was the one Aaron wanted!!!
Magic wands complete with a spell book!
Samuel was pretty good sitting in the pram for so long, so when it was all finished he ran off some steam in the playground :-)
One afternoon after school the kids did some painting that Nana sent to Maddison :-)
And I have been making cookies for our cookies monsters!
A double batch of cookies doesn't last long around here!
.
So that's been us. Now I have to get scampering and sort out my craft space a bit (which I haven't touched in ages) so it's semi ready for packing! It's rather a daunting task!!!
.
Thanks for visiting.

loving that kitchen, it looks stunning. Hope the move goes well. Had to giggle at the word Aaron chose for his magic mirror. Looks like the kids had a great time at Halloween.

Wow, the new place looks great! And I love that kitchen. Sounds like a fun place for the kids as well, with areas to ride and play. When do you move?
