Ugly Bug Ball

Sunday 21st March 2004
We have had another busy week, Daddy is still learning on his Scuba Diving course which is taking up his free evenings, so we are only getting to update this on Sunday at the moment. 
Today is Mother’s day and so the children had cards and flowers at the ready for Mummy this morning to wish her Happy Mother’s Day.  Also they made her breakfast of Melon and Orange Juice.  Her main present she had had the day before when Daddy worked all day to lay the new flooring in the kitchen.  Looks very good now says Mummy. 
Scott has been entertaining us with his new song, the Ugly Bug Ball which he debuted at the hospital entertaining Aunty Lindsay.  He has also performed it for camera and at the Siswicks.  Mummy can’t help show him off and thankfully he doesn’t get too embarrassed, just yet anyway. The video clip is available for download as an mp4 clip.  Elizabeth has also been joining in copying his actions and Emily is now learning Wind the Bobbin Up. 
We have been trying to stop Elizabeth from whining so much at the moment.  She has admitted that she pretends as she has been teaching Mummy how to whine.  It is very funny to watch. 
Scott has learned how to do buttons this week, so he can now do up and undo his shirt buttons etc..   there’s no stopping him now!!!
Anyway that is our short update for this week.  More next week….

Daddy starts diving & a day at the Temple

Sunday 14th March 2004

Oh dear we have been very slack in writing in our diary, already nearly half of the month has gone by and we haven’t written up our diary.
Today has been a busy day, Mummy had to go to her meeting this morning before Church which meant Daddy had to get the children ready for Church.  This is the first time Mummy let him chose their clothes.  He didn’t do too badly.  At least they were all wearing their own clothes. Mostly!!! Well Emily was wearing Elizabeth’s top and Elizabeth was wearing Emily’s dress but you couldn’t tell!!!
After Church Nikki and her Mum came for Dinner and we all played for the afternoon.  In the evening Daddy and Scott went over to see Aunty Lindsay and Uncle Gary. 
Yesterday we went to the temple on the ward temple day.  We had a very fun day; Leah Gilmore looked after the children while Mummy and Daddy went inside.  Afterwards we all went for a walk around the grounds and took some pictures;  It was very nice to be at the temple or the “castle” as Scott used to call it when he was little. 
It’s Daddy’s fault why we haven’t written in our diary more this month. He has just started an evening course to learn how to Scuba Dive.  He has got to catch up with Mummy who has been diving for years and years and years with her Dad and sisters.  It looks like Scott though is ready to learn aswell, he tried on Aunty Kirsty’s old wetsuit and was pretending to Scuba Dive.  Hey Granddad C we think you will have to take him when he is old enough. 
Mummy had a very busy start to the month, when she had to deal with a funeral of one of the sisters in the ward.  It all went well and there were no problems.  This is the sort of thing that a relief society president has to deal with.  Just a bit soon for her to have to deal with ed!

Elizabeth went to her introduction day last week at Chatterbox.  She really enjoyed the fact that it was for her and not Scott.  She really had a good time there and can’t wait to start in September.  Meanwhile Scott has been on the party scene; first it was Darcy’s party, (very important that he attend that one) and then Daniel’s and there are more parties coming up  The guy has a very busy social calendar. 
Emily is still struggling with her new teeth coming through.  They are not all through yet but they are getting there… hopefully soon.
