A change of plans..

Last night was meant to be Bible study night for me.  You know, candles, quiet music and some much-needed "down time".  Instead, I caught up on the daily chores which
 had become night-time chores: folding, laundry, washing dishes, etc.  Yesterday was a bit of a right-off.  Elijah came down with a sudden mysterious illness.  We were at music, and during the morning tea bit I noticed he was very quiet.  When I picked him up for a cuddle, he had a temperature so we came straight home (didn't want to pass anything on!).  He slept on and off for most off the day, fighting the fever which I tried to keep down naturally with cool cloths and tepid baths.  He ate nothing all day, had one huge vomit (ick, that was fun to clean up....), and went to sleep yet again by about 8:30 last night.  Praise God, he's had no more symptoms, slept well and woke up happy and back to normal this morning!!  I'm so thankful; I detest tummy bugs and was worried that's what it was.  Who knows what it was!  He's being fed on super-good stuff today- we all are.

Anyway, today we were meant to go visit friends in Hervey Bay but are instead having another quiet home day.  I don't mind.  :)  As you well know, I like being home.  And it's rainy outside which makes it even better. We've played trains, had a swing outside in the undercover area, drawn on the chalkboard outside (elijah is quite interested in learning his letters at the moment), and I've done washing, cleaned out the chicks etc. in between.  Saraya didn't make the bus this morning (slow start, mostly thanks to yesterday for me) so we drove her out to school a little late and watched a big truck tipping a new load of softfall into the playground area.  Just about made Elijah's day, I think!  We popped into the stockfeed store and got some more feed for the chicks too.  They are growing so fast!!

I was trying to think of a photo to attach and came up with this idea.  This is all 3 children at *about* the same age, 8 months.  What do you think?  Easy to tell who is who??  Let me know your thoughts!  I was surprised at the similarities actually.

Absolutely adorable photos!
I'm glad that he's feeling better, I want to be a good Mum like you when I have children. Quiet days at home are so wonderful... I'm glad you enjoyed your time with Elijah!

My guesses: Top - bottom are Saraya, William, Elijah.

Certainly are alot of similarities!

Well done jen, yes you are right. I guess the pretty hat gives Saraya away. And obviously the one in overalls and skivvy can't be Will in our current temperatures! It's so interesting seeing them all lined up like that though.

You can certainly tell they are related!!
Glad to hear Elijah's feeling better. Quiet days at home are always nice though. I love it when I have days with nothing planned!

Your babies are all so very cute. I enjoy your blog so much. I usually lure, but Laura is encouraging me to write more. She even got me started on a blog, she did all the set-up and showed me how to submit posts and post pictures. I am very proud of her and appreciate all her skills and talents. Saminda it is nice to come out of hiding and meet you, I am Carolyn, Laura's mum from Alaska.
