Catch Up (again!)

What's been happening since my last blog post?!

I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies - the recipe said it made 80 - I got about 150 out of it.  I should think so too ... look how many choc chips it used! (that's about 10 cups there!)  haha

All was quiet one evening and I came out to find Aaron & Maddison had made an "ant house" ... on the bench of all places!  The last place I want ants!  They even put 'food' in the house to attract them.
 And the tunnel for the ants to get from one bench to the other!
The food consisted of strawberry flavoured chocolate chips, animal biscuits (which went soggy because they spilt water) and green sprinkles!  (I cleaned it all up after they went to bed hehee)
Maddison started school.  I got some photos of her on her own, but Samuel kept wanting to join in the pictures with his backpack on too hehee
 Maddison has the same teacher Aaron had last year.  It's a "lion class".  So all the kids got a turn at dressing up in the teacher lion costume :-)
 Checking out the book case on the first day.
Going on the bus the first time with Aaron.  I went with her too and she loved it.  Told me it was perfect! hehee

I was at school one day last week to take photos of each individual child in her class and they were doing a drawing of themselves.
 So I took the photos
 then they had recess and snack.
 And came back to finish their drawing.  Maddison needed a mirror to see herself hehee
Here's her completed artwork!  See any resemblance?  haha  They had to write on the bottom "I am ..." She wrote "I am a princess"  :-)  heheheee
 I took photos of the kids in Aaron's class one day too :-)

Saturday week ago I took Maddison with me to Scrap-n-Crop.  Not sure that it's a good idea any more as she wants papers too!  This is what she came away with!  (don't think Lyndon was that amused hehee) :-)

Samuel saying "Cheese" at dinner one night.
Yesterday and today were public holidays.  Today we decided to check out the park at KLCC Suria.  It was huge!

Aaron & Maddison rode their scooters around.

 We headed for the playground for them to burn off some energy :-)

There was so much playground equipment it was amazing.  We found one in the corner that we could kind of stand guard at the exit so we could keep track of the kids hehee

This afternoon the kids (with Lyndon's supervision) decorated a cake for me.

We enjoyed it tonight since Lyndon won't be back till after the kids are asleep tomorrow night.  This next photo cracks me up ... after they had sung me happy birthday Maddison grabbed the candle and was licking the icing off it, Samuel was scooping icing off the cake with his finger and Aaron was being silly!  How typical!

So that's me up to date ... sort of!

Thanks for visiting.

I'm so behind on blog posts, so just trying to catch up. Wow, that is a LOT of chocolate chips! But to get 150 cookies out of it is pretty awesome, you won't need to bake for a while.

Love the first day of school photos. I can't believe your little miss is off to school!

Finding it hard to get past the 10cups of chocolate chips...really??? 150biscuits?? Usually it goes the other way for me - recipe says 'makes 30' but I only get 20 or something!
