BOXING DAY... KIDS GO SHOPPING

Brylee and Griffin were given quite a sum of money for Christmas, so Stew get's the 'pleasure' of taking them shopping today!

I am quite sure he will quietly go mental... but I'd rather he went than me... I've no patience for kids shopping... they can never make up their minds!

So... while they are out, I will get a bit of housework done... boring, but necessary.

Here's a few photos from yesterday that would not load ...

 ABOVE:  Stew with our newest Grandbaby.

ABOVE:  all 4 grandbabies yesterday.  Steve and Keera, Haylea and Bodhi (who was trying to suck her arm), Stew and Dante and Tess with Sienna.  How blessed are we to have them all here with us!  This has been a very special Christmas for Stew and I.

 ABOVE:  Now that I keep all me bits 'n' bobs on my computer desk, Teddy can sit on top of the shelving unit in the corner and stare outside, keeping an eye on the neighbourhood.

 ABOVE: he seems to have made himself quiet at home there eh?  *smiles*

 ABOVE: Sienna reading Bex's CWI Cookbook...

 ABOVE: she needs LOTS of room so she can spread the book out...

ABOVE:  YES Sienna, you are ADORABLE... even with that dummy (binky) in your gob.

Right, I'm off to get the day started properly... hoping it's a fine day... we have a lot of washing!
Tea towels.  Did I mention that our damn Dishdrawers (both of them) have packed it in and died?
Well... they did... and it's not worth getting them repaired (again)... we shall be getting a new dishwasher very soon.

ONWARD...

Well... the house is finally quiet!  Everyone has gone out to take advantage of the Boxing Day sales.

*** PEPSI UPDATED *** PEPSI UPDATED *** PEPSI UPDATED ***

KAREN AND DONNA, I HAVE MOVED YOUR COMMENTS TO PEPSI, and SPARKLING... I HAVE ADDED MORE TO PEPSI SINCE YOU COMMENTED.

 ABOVE:  Something tells me this little girl wants a skateboard!  Me thinks she will have to wait until she's a bit older... *smiles*

ABOVE:  remember when we bought this big pot and Nikua palm?  It was at least 2 years ago... well recently I thought the palm was completely DEAD.  It was all dry and withered... I was SURE it was dead.

Well !  It's NOT!  I am thrilled to say it is finally growing.  These palms hate being moved, so I reckon it just packed a sad for two years... and now it's decided to behave and grow.
I'm so happy... that darn palm cost $200!  And I LOVE Nikua Palms.

I just found out how sensitive me computer's touchscreen is.

VERY SENSITIVE.  I kept getting 'interrupted' and having trouble typing cos the cursor kept jumping all over the place.  Now I know why.
There was a bloody FLY on the screen up in the corner... and it kept moving.  Problem solved... I just fed that fly to me frogs.

The shoppers came home after braving the crowds.  Brylee and Griffin both bought themselves a skateboard and elbow/knee pads.
And a couple of DVD's to watch on their DVD players.

I got me house vacumed, and the floors washed, so I'm happy.

Debs the midwife called in to check on Dante, and he is doing really well.  He's gained 120 grms in 4 days... Bex is clearly a good 'cow'... *smiles*.

End of Day:  well another day done and dusted.  It's been wet and humid today... really draining.  Hopefully tomorrow it will be fine.

  1. Dante and Grandad very special you are lucky to be so blessed at xmas I loved Dante under the tree yesterday too! Sienna is too cute I love her sparkly eyes and sparkly ears (she is cuter with her ears pierced), and those dimples Russell and Tess will have their work cut out for them later on I'm sure.

  5. Glad you are able to get some quiet time.

    Sorry I did not get around to wishing you a Merry Christmas but I see you had one anyway. How wonderful to be surrounded by family and babies.

    Only four of us but that has been good to in it's own way. We enjoyed our day and now to recover from yesterday's sugar hit thanks to delicious pavlova.

    Trust you continue to have wonderful times with family and have a Happy and prosperous New Year.

    Blessings
