The Weeks Happenigs

On the Weekend we had the usual celebratory bonfire for Guyfawkes, even i have to admit that this year it was pretty impressive, the picture taken below captures it towards its end...the only downside was that we forgot to make a dummy to burn. Anyway we all had a good time, and let off our Roman candles and lit our sparklers. Bring back the days of Rockets is what i say.

Robbie wasnt very good at riding in the stockcrate as he kept falling over etc...but he still enjoyed playin in there when the truck wasnt moving. Hes also become an officianado at riding up front on the scooter (previously he would hit his chin with every bump). He also likes to ride on the ride on mower when we are cutting the lawns.

On Saturday afternoon, we were invited out to Belindas place to meet her parents. The farm where whe grew up is really beautifull and only 30mins out of town (out Cambridge ways). We spent the afternoon playing lawm tennis and introducing little robbie to all the animals, they Belindas dad took us on a tour of the farm. At the highest point we took this photo of Chucky and Robbie, where the views were amazing.

A Beautiful Baby Girl

'Remember remember the 5th of November,
the gun powder treason and plot...'
So Pita and Tasi have themselves a little "Guy Fawkes' baby, so none of us should have any trouble remembering her birthday.

Well today Monday the 5th of November Pita and Tasi's little girl was born. They are yet to think of a name for her, though they seem to be considering Lydia, though i like Prudence myself. They are having her blood tests done so we will know if she has rubella in the next few days. Physically she looks perfect, apart from a tiny skin tag on her ear.

She was born at approximately 5pm after Tasi was induced around 1pm, so Tasi had to go through 4 hrs of labour. She weighed 7.8 pounds, which we all thought was pretty good considering a few weeks ago the doctors were saying whe wouldnt make 5.5. She has lots of hair that is currently light blond just like little robbies.

Little Robbie seemed a bit confused by his sisters arrival at first, but he soon warmed to her, he will be glad to have a little friend back in Egypt.
