I love watching the older kids playing with Sophie. They have so much patience and never seem to tire of entertaining her. She is one spoiled little munchkin.
On Sunday Natalie wanted to do 'something exciting' that we don't normally do. Her first suggestion was Rainbows End but the cost and the weather put a stop to that one. Next she suggested Ice skating. Brrr I don't think so, not in this cold winter weather. Finally we decided on 'Paint the Earth'. We took Chris to work then Natalie, Sophie and I headed over to Takapuna. Natalie spent 2 hours painting a 'Froggy' money box. She did a fantastic job and was so proud of herself. sophie painted a little plate and put a 'strawberry' stamp in the middle of it - too cute, then she spent the rest of the time making a huge mess and painting everything that was within a 5 metre radius around her. It too me longer to clean up after her than it did for her to paint her plate LOL.
In the afternoon I finished my entry for the second challenge in the So You think You can Scrap competition. It was pleased with the finished result. Adam had recovered sufficiently to have his girlfriend Nicola, over for the afternoon, Chris was still at work, Jaime thought about doing his homework but didn't actually start until around 8pm instead he watch a movie on SKY with Mark, Natalie made a card and Sophie slept for two hours (bliss!)
