The dress - a gift made by Nana - doesn't Hannah look gorgeous in it?

When I was growing up it never occurred to me that the children I wanted would be so long coming, or that I would have twins, or that one of them would have DS, or that their father would be a man I met in Senior High School, or that I would be living in a different state to my parents. I really miss being able to just call or drop in on Mum and Dad and I know that they miss having the grandchildren so far away. When I was young I never dreamed that life could be so complicated, complex or so good either. Still I wish that my parents lived closer. Thank goodness for the modern wonders of email and webcam.




The sun cmae out in grand style today which was nice after the wet, cold week just passed. We took the monkeys to Darling Harbour Jazz Festival and they had a ball - they especially enjoyed the noodles for lunch. They are sleeping soundly now - two of our dearest friends have finally came back to SYdney after living in New Zealand for a few years - so we let the brats stay up past their usual bedtime so they could rampage a bit with their godparents. They (the adults not the twins) are out watching the soccer and I (as the least sporty person on the planet) am home babysitting my own children! SO it goes ...

I followed your link from Always Chaos - your twins are adorable! And that dress is beautiful - what a keepsake that will be especially being handmade!

Thank you - I must say that I think my children are beautiful - not that I am biased of course! I am a relatively new blogger but must say that I am enjoying it. I am sure that you will too Camille. PS Hi Snowblog! Welcome to the Shamptons.

Adorable pics :) I can relate to you missing living by your parents, mine live in a totally different Country ;) They've even spent a couple year living in Australia (Bondai Junction and Nawra). Your life sounds wonderful and your kids are darling!!!
