Busy busy busy

We've got the Circuit Overseer and his wife visiting this week, as well as a couple in training to be their backups. Combine all the extra activities with a PTA meeting, volunteering at Max's school, service and running a house, I haven't had a lot of time to blog - sorry!

It's an exciting week next week too, but one that should be filled with news - my sister and brother in law are arriving on Tuesday!!!! :D We're all very very excited and I'm sure I'll have tons of photos and stories to share during their stay.

Funny conversations in the car...... Part 1

So I pick Max up from Kindergarten and we're driving to the shops discussing what to have for dinner. The kids both say anything but tomatoes.

It breaks out into a discussion of whether it's pronounced TO-MAY-TO (said in their cute little American accents) or TO-MAH-TO (my accent). It goes on and on for ages..... so I decide to settle it and get someone else on my side by asking what Lola from Charlie and Lola says.

They look at each other and both say.........

"moonsquirters!!!" You can't win an argument with kids.

If you are not a parent of small children or just have no idea what I'm talking about - then watch this video clip. Plus, I put it here because it's Dad's favourite show ever!'

Lily gets Wii fit!

Here is the little ray of sunshine that is my daughter...... using my wii fit. (Yes, the same wii fit that two days ago sent me into a panic by telling me I'd gained 8lbs.... only to step on it today - when it said "congratulations, you've lost 9.7lbs" Diet avoided for another week!) I just adore all the effort she's putting into the rowing squats and the counting under her breath. Her hula-hooping has me in stitches every time. Bless her.

There's another video of her doing step aerobics (complete with blowing me kisses in the middle of the routine ♥) but it's longer and I'll have to upload it tomorrow.
