So Jose has invented a new swear word! No kidding...every time something happens he wasn't expecting he says, "Oh Snap!" It is so cute, but I have no idea where it came from. I know I say the occasional 'cr**' in front of the kids, but it is only in extreme situaions...they have never heard me swear badly!

It is school holidays now...but I guess everyone has noticed that now! Better traffic, busier cul de sacs! It is the first school holidays we have had in this house and I am amazed by the number of kids in the area...i didn't even know they existed!

We have been super busy so far. Monday we went down to a local park with some friends...It was heaps of fun, but so hard now that Audrey has a mind of her own. A couple of times I had the big panic when I ouldn't see the kids, but they are pretty good and never went out of sight for long. Today we met up with Amy, Kelly A, Hope, Rach and Nikala and ALL the kids at Crazy Critters. Aside from a very wicked 5 year old who will remain nameless but is no longer shameless (;)) they had a great time together! So much laughing and Thomas had a ball chasing the girls around!

Tomorrow we are going to see 'Cars' with Kelly and Mum. I am looking forward to it but know that I will more than likely miss half of it, as Audrey has the attention span of a cockroach. I have no idea wher she gets it from!

She is a smart little cookie though! Today I was backing out of the driveway and she urgently kept calling out 'Mummy, Mummy!" So I turned around to see what she wanted before we took off. "Bel" she said, pointing to my as yet unfastened seatbelt!!!!! I usually put it on just before we take off, and have the boys totally paranoid about going anywhere without out one, so I probably shouldn't be suprised! I do know where she gets that intelligence from! He he!

Only one week til we go to Perth to see Siv and Konrad...and her hubby and Aksel too! I am trying to keep Thomas as busy as possible, so the countdown is not too excruciating, but we will have to wait and see! Only 8 sleeps!
