Being quiet.......

This is what my little monkeys get up too when they are being quiet……..I really should learn that they will be doing SOMETHING naughty/silly/messy when they are being quiet!! J

This is Freya having done ‘facepaints’ on Ryan with the pens while doing some colouring…..

And this is what the two of them think is how you do painting lol. It has to include some on face, hands or any other body part that takes there fancy at that moment. They did do some nice paintings that are now on my fridge though J

Spitting image??

My kids all look very similar indeed, This picture is off Bethany a few years ago when she was about 3. She looks the spitting image of what Freya looks like now! The baby pictures are really hard to tell the different between all 5 of them!! I really need to make sure we have the names on the back of ALL pictures…..

This is Freya not too long ago......

Time for the big boy bed!

Ryan keeps climbing out of his cot!! He is a little pro at it now so last week Lee has changed his bed into a ‘big boy bed’ He is so happy to be in his big bed now. We are currently trying to redecorate his bedroom before we move Kian into the room. So last week Lee started to strip the wall paper – only for the plaster to start coming down with it!! So Lee decided to give plastering a try! It turns out he is pretty good at it as the one wall now looks nice new and fresh!! I don’t think Lee now realises that I’m going to want him to re-plaster the WHOLE house J

This is Ryan snuggled in his 'big boy bed'

My little Gymnast!

Bethany has recently started Gymnastics. She LOVES it. She is always practising her handstands and cartwheels around the living room. Here she is modelling her new Leotard.

Olympic Torch.

So today Caitlin and Bethany went with school to watch the Olympic torch go through our town :) They really enjoyed the morning and think standing for hours with their friends in the rain etc was fun for them (unsure why as I would have been a bit fed up :) ) Anyway It has really made them excited for the Olympics now and they cant wait to see it when it makes it to the stadium.

Beforehand the school and other schools in the cluster have arranged for a copy of the torch to be carried around all the schools in the area. The kids all got to stand in a row and all pass it between them. Then the youngest ( Bethany's good friend Elize) and oldest of the school took it down the road and it then went on to the next school - thought it was a nice idea. My Phone decided to play up and run out of battery so unfortunately I didn't get many photos!! Just the one photo, Which you can just spot Caitlin waiting with her friends.......

The day must have been a busy one and took it out of Ryan as this is how I found him while I was making dinner - I thought he was being rather quiet :) Bless him.
