talks on the phone, bites, has started water orientation classes, growls, gives kisses (mostly to the soft toys and daddy, but sometimes mummy) and is still my little princess.

Estella fala no telefone, morde, começou aula de orientação na água, grita, da beijos (a maior parte para os bichos de pelúcia e papai, mas algumas vezes pra mamãe) e é minha princesinha.

The Dark Knight

Still BATMAN. Minol (Big) cut his hand at work on New Year's Eve and we were talking about the Doctors. We asked Minol (Little) if he was going to be a doctor when he grew up. "Nooooooo! I'm goin' to be Batman!!" 'Nuff said.

Estella's First Christmas

Christmas 2010 was small, simple, but wonderful. It was Estalla's first Christmas. It was Minol's first Christmas where he "got it". I got a wooden nativity (especially for the kids to make it easier to explain the birth of Christ), so Minol loved playing with that and also gets the Santa part of Christmas too- he enjoyed opening his AND helping everyone else open gifts. We lost Bink, Nick and the kiddies as they headed back to Brisbane for Christmas but we got Puddy. So we had Christmas lunch at our place with Grandma, Grandpa, Mick, Puddy and US! Big Minol made his yummy scrummy BBQ. Lovely lovely! Christmas Eve was nice too. We shared a traditional dinner at mum and dad's with Piret and Maz and the missionaries. We shared some thoughts on Christ and some music which was a really nice way to celebrate our Saviour's birth. And now it's hello 2011!!
