Today was a restful, peaceful, family-and-friends filled Sunday! A wonderful way to finish off the winter holidays.
Scrambled eggs for breakfast (tell me, how is it possible we keep getting 6 eggs a day from 5 chickens?? Seriously!), books and board games and outside play through the morning. Lots of warm tea and coffee (for me :)). We baked a chocolate slice. I read my Bible and the book I'm working through this week.
We had a picnic at the park for lunch- it was a perfect winter sky up there! So clear and blue, and so warm today. We just couldn't stay indoors.
Sandwiches and oranges, dried apple rings and roasted almonds, and chocolate slice to eat.
Ball games with Papa.
Lots of tickling, lots of giggling.
A happy baby with a mouth full enjoying the sunshine.
(this pic is for you Michael- remember when you bought this shirt for Saraya?! ;))
Peter Rabbit, dressed up for an outing. Do you like Elijah's choice combination here?
A hide and seek game with the walky-talkies around the park.
Nice long rests for the children this afternoon.
And friends for tea! I made a meat pie (again- I'm kind-of stuck on experimenting with these...), little potatoes, bread rolls and salad. Warm custard (thanks Petrina!) and chocolate slice for dessert. A nice play for all the little people- and then there was this sweet little poppet.
Baby Hannah. Red haired, beautiful, and adored by all. Oh how we love newborn babies around here!! Interestingly, Will put on quite a show when Stuart had a cuddle with Hannah. He didn't seem to mind when I held her, but he really didn't like Stu holding her! He just wanted his Papa. I think Stuart secretly quite enjoyed that feeling. :)
All in all, a good day. I have clothes laid out for tomorrow, and I'm about to sort out the kitchen and get books ready for tomorrow morning. Bring on Term 3!
