{snippets} from the weekend..

Another weekend done and dusted.. I think I must seriously be getting older and older, as time seems to go so much quicker than ever before..

We had a lovely weekend of family and building. We finally finished off the little project that was started a few weeks back..  We converted an old wardrobe into a little aviary/large bird cage for our little cockatiel buddies Bob and Charlie. They've been with us for quite a while and due to their ridiculously loud whistles, kind of got banished to the back room. So something had to change.. and now it has.. they have a new home under the verandah so they can be a part of our family again.

Zaccy loves these feathered little guys and spent most of Sunday just chatting to them. He has learned to count.. 7, 8, 9, 10.. (not sure where the 1, 2, 3 etc is yet) so I'm thinking Charlie might be counting soon too. By the way.. Bob is a girl.. we only found this out when she laid an egg (4 years after we got her).

Preparations have started for my Ella's Birthday Party as well.. Invitations have gone out and my little princess is super excited.. we're counting down the sleeps (approximately 236 times a day)..

I'm running a bit late with my weekend post this week.. for a very good reason though.. My dear primary school friend who now lives in QLD, was in Adelaide with her family for a quick visit, so we headed down to her in-laws house with the kiddos this morning and joined in. Oh how I miss having her around.. but on the good note, its just so lovely to see our kids, who only see each other once a year or so, get along so beautifully. Love you my sweet!!

What did you get up to on the weekend?
