Things have been hectic in the Cloud 9 household - J has been working working working and it's all been far too busy for blogging!
What else has been happening... let me think.
We've had a few really fun meals / social whatsits with people. Dinner with D and S last Saturday, brunch with D and S (a different D and S!!) before church on Sun and then afternoon tea / dinner with our bible study group on Sun afternoon. Busy weekend, but lots of fun.
Jeremy spent most of Saturday trying to Xander-proof our deck, with Dad's help. They've made it through the design stage - just have to find time to actually do the cutting, drilling etc. Poor Dad was pretty sick, but the 2 of them still managed to come up with a great solution to the problem of X trying to Kamikaze off the deck.
We also recently went to our little mate Luka's 3rd birthday party. Luka is the proud part owner of what must be the largest trampoline in the Southern Hemisphere, so a very bouncy time was had by all. I also got covered in chocolate icing courtesy of Mr X, who was trying to imitate Daddy's facial hair by rubbing his face in the cake. X really enjoyed the party, no doubt partly because it incuded both of his food groups: "chocolate cake" and "not chocolate cake".
JJ has been very easy lately. She is obsessed with signs - I sure didn't realise how many roadsigns there were on your average road until JJ decided she needs to know what each one says, and why. She told Jeremy the other day that Puppet Cat and Fairy Princess are cousins. Apparently they both want skipping ropes, but because PC is just a baby she says "I wog tit..tit skipping rope"! Just like Xander!
