He's just got 1 small problem - he is slightly unbalanced and has to rest on his trunk all the time.
I made my (and Chris') favourite curry last night. It was so cold, the weather was perfect for this. It is a Sri Lankan curry called Kukul Mas. You can find the reipe here http://www.theworldfeast.com.au/recipes.php?recipeID=5&archive_cultureID=52

This is the start of feeding time, by the end everything and I mean everything was covered in spag bog and custard. Well done to Grace who seems to be able to spit her food further and further each day.

Here is Jean with Amelia and Grace.
I've been trying to finish this quilt I started when I was pregnant with the girls. I've finished the top and pinned it all and am now machine quilting it - which is becoming a bit of a nightmare.
I've made a New Years Resolution - it's not something I normally do as they are usually a bit boring (I know most people will find mine boring and ridiculous). They are always things you should do or stop doing. It was so cold down here the other day so I decided to learn how to knit a sock this year - I know I probably should make two. And you may laugh now Chris, but who will be the one sitting here with toastie toes laughing in winter.

The start of a little baby wrap. Changing a pattern I have to make a kimono type wrap.

This was the only time they were quiet yesterday and it didn't last long!

One of the great things about living down here are that people come to visit us so this week we've had Chris' friend Jo and her parents which has been fantastic. The only downside to this is how much I have been eating. So while Chris has the girls I'm off for some exercise.
Here is a pic from the farm last week when it was a bit hot.

The girls are obsessed with phones, remote controls so this was inevitable. They had to have their own playstation controllers.
Here is the geeky craft picture. I finished a cardigan for next winter for the girls. So now their are two of them (everything has to come in pairs now). And here are some bunnies I made for Christmas. I found the pattern in a strange Japanese craft book.
Things I have just learnt: don't try and update your blog after a lot of wine. This simple little thing has taken over an hour. So any spelling mistakes are now Chris' fault as he had to proof read it.
