James doesnt usually do crafts, but Blake wanted Dad to help him. They both had fun and Crocky turned out great. We used egg cartons for most of it, split peas for scales, and we had some cool eyes. I made some too and Blake used both types. The made ones were his nose!

Pear and Berry Spongy Pudd
825 gram tin sliced pears - drained (but any fruit will work)
100 grams frozen berries
1.5 t baking powder
125g butter (rough guess I don't have scales)
1 c castor sugar
1/2 T castor sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t all spice
Place fruit in oven proof
So it's been a while. Mum and Dad made it, a few days late, with Dad pretty much incapacitated they entire time. The kids loved having them here, and they were a great help. They took Blake to Byron for a few days and spent a HEAP of time at the beach.
James and I took Blake to Movie World for his birthday, and left Ella with Mum and Dad. He had a ball, and really enjoyed some Mum and Dad time without little sister around.

Abby the Tiger and Bek the face painter
The pirate (he just didn't want his photo taken)
Blake's Pirate cake
The 1st and 3rd birthday party is now done and dusted. And while fun was had by all, we have decided parties will be happening every 2nd year from now on. It was busy, chaotic and loud, but all the kids played really well and had a great time
We had a pin the head on a Robot game, Treasure hunt, and face painting (thanks for that Bek)
The house is back to normality (we had planned on having it at the park but the weather had other plans.
And....Nani and Koro are on their way (am about to go get them!) Koro has improved enough to make the flight...YAY!!!
