Well, we survived the weekend, ha ha ha!

We had the Newall twins, Brock and Isabelle, for the night at our place last night to give our friend Charlette a night off (as her birthday present from us). I personally think we may have not been thinking clearly when we offered, and I think Charlette thought we had lost the plot too! HOWEVER, we did offer, and she did accept, because of course she'd be stupid not to take us up on this once only offer :)

The babies arrived at about half three on Saturday afternoon, and stayed with us until lunchtime today. It has been a LONG time since we have had a baby in the house, let alone two - that woman deserves a friggin medal.... every time you get one baby sorted/settled/fed/asleep, there is still another one to sort out too, not to mention in Charlette's case a toddler too. I have to say that it makes us appreciate our reasonably well behaved 4-year-old!

I have a confession to make though.... Sorry Karlos, we had to do this to your son...

Brock (son of a MEGA Holden fan) playing with Jake's Ford Flag!

...and wearing Jake's Ford T-Shirt! (might be a bit mean, but it IS bloody funny!!!)

Brock and Jake playing under the play-gym. Note the fact that Brock is just about to grab a good-sized handful of our son's hair.... guess you could call that payback eh Karlos?! Ha ha ha!!!

Finally, try getting someone to take a photo of you with TWO babies, and try to get them both looking at the camera at the same time.... Arrrgghhh, impossible! (Oh and yes Karl, he's yanking fairly visciously on MY hair in the first pic!)

Well, that's about it from me.... After the babies left, D and J went to the Weber Bros Circus, which sounded like it was a little over-rated, but at least J got to go (thanks Ma for shouting your grandson!)
We called round to see Ma and Pa for a cuppa after the boys got home from the circus (I cleaned, then studied while they were away), then late in the afternoon, J and I went for a walk for about an hour - he rode his scooter flat out the whole time! He needed to get out and get rid of a bit of energy after spending so long sitting on his butt at the circus.... a half hour wait beforehand and a two hour circus show equals one 4-year-old with excess energy to spare! Problem solved!
Well, that's it from me for today.... I am going to go watch Men in Trees (just finished watching Grey's Anatomy while doing this - LOVE that program)
Toodles peoples, B x
