Sundry family happenings

Last week was Matthew's birthday. He's never really been one for birthday parties, not like his sister. Each year we ask him what he'd like to do for his birthday, but the "pirates" party we gave him a couple of years ago was the first and only proper birthday party he'd wanted. This year, with the new aquatic centre opened, he decided he wanted a pool party. So that's what he got. He and a group of friends spent an hour playing in the pool followed by pizza and other goodies in the adjacent party room.

Happy birthday Matt!

This week, we got a new living room. Something Ali had set her heart on for a year or two now. The couches that came half-way across the world with us are now gone. Here is the room before (please excuse the mess)...

And after...

Although I'm still getting used to the altered scene, I have to admit it looks good in the room and creates a lot of open space.


  1. I like the new furniture! Though, it looks like a huge pillow fight just waiting to happen. Hopefully your kids are more restrained that mine or at least the pillows are resiliant. :)

  2. Hah! No pillow fights (yet) but we do have to discourage them from spinning on that big circle chair in the corner.


I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
