Well. Having a Brazilian husband and half Brazilian children means that at 4:30am this morning we were all up watching the Brazilians play the North Koreans. Yes, we were all up. Little Minol's eyes popped open as soon as he heard the slightest of movement (Big Minol does tend to be as quiet as an elephant in the middle of the night). Half way through the game Estella decided to join us. At least we went back to sleep after the game happy that Brazil pulled through in the second half. And then I was able to dress Estella up in her soccer gear to celebrate today. I sat her on the couch with the little soccer ball to take some pics but Minol gate crashed the party and had to be in it too! She finally got to touch the ball in the end but all she wanted to do was suck it!

some happenings

Minol has loved watching Shrek 1, 2 and 3 at home on DVD so we thought we'd take him to see Shrek 4. It was his first (and Estella's) trip to the movies and lucky for us he sat through it all! We sat right at the front and by the end of it the kids were lying on the floor watching it, but nevertheless they did watch the whole thing without any complaints! Whoohoo. I might add that it's so nice for Minol to be able to hang out with his cousins... double whoohoo.

Onto Estella... she is now a rolling machine, finger sucking machine and an eat her brother machine. She constantly amazes me at how chilled out she is... ooooh, she is 5 months old today!

I noticed Toni's doily obsession over at MAKE IT PERFECT and thought "how funny" cos I've been into making these doily embroidered wall hangings which I got from A PRINT A DAY. They are cute and fun to make. I love Toni's idea to dye the doilies. I might do some pinky coloured ones to make a hanging for Estella!
