Love to read…

I discovered this blog and the author Ann Voskamp not very long ago. I feel incredibly blessed. The way she writes is beautiful, and the words point me in the direction of Christ and his Word.

I have ordered her new book from Amazon, and if it is as good as I think it will be, I will order copies for my girlfriends too.

Japanese Birthday for Ben.

We threw a little Japanese themed party for Ben's 2nd birthday. We all love sushi, and anything Japanese.
Matt taught the kids how to make sushi using the susheezi (very non-traditional of course!!).

Dave and I decorated the store bought slab cake with Sushi we made using LCM bars, lollies and fruit leather.
Sarah did a sushi craft with the little ones.
I bought a couple of sushi platters which were yummy!
The birthday boy wearing his outfit Dave bought him in Japan. These may or may not actually be PJs?? But who cares, he looked the part.
I decorated these noodles boxes with origami cranes. Origami is my new favourite hobby!!
I found these great wind-up sushi toys at Yoshi Jones to go in them, along with a few lollies.

Slow days.

I am wondering whether the number of children at home is somehow related to the speed of time.

When it's only Ben and I, time passes deliciously slowly.

Hot Hot Hot

Temps here in Sydney have been around the 40 degree mark all week.
The big kids have all started at their new schools.

And the little one has spent the week doing water play...

... and eating ice blocks.
