halloween 2011

Halloween was great fun this year. As always our neighbourhood gets very involved in all the fun.  Dads are out with the kids trick or treating and many mums are at home handing out the candy.  Finlay helped for a while then fell asleep. He was wearing two costumes! First a green dragon then a tiger.

Cameron was Boba Fett from Star Wars.

Jamie was a rather disturbing skeleton who he said is called Skellie.

Finlay Michael Elliott

Grant keeps reminding me that I should post to this blog as well as facebook. I really don't remember to post very often. So here is our update...

Finlay Michael Elliott was born on Sunday 5th June at 1.42pm. He was 8lbs and 20.75 inches. Everyone thinks he looks like Jamie as a baby. He has sandy coloured hair and blue eyes. He's very good natured. It was a fast delivery - only an hour and half in the hospital before Finlay arrived. He was 12 days early but we were happy that he arrived early!

Here is a photo of Cameron and Jamie showing Finlay the best moves on Angry Birds - using Granny's phone.

This is me in the hospital a few minutes after Finlay was born.

Grant has his first cuddle with little Finlay.

And now Finlay is at home..a champion napper. He's in a lovely chair that Leigh sent for him..a rocking chair and buzzing chair all in one..perfect!
We've had a professional photographer take some photos of Finlay and now we're just waiting to see the pictures - can't wait!

Today was a big day for our family. My brother, John, and his wife Stefanie had a baby girl called Alice. Cameron and Jamie are so excited to be big cousins. They love being big brothers and now they are excited to to have another younger member of the family in Canada too.

a day in DC

We took the boys to the National Botanic Gardens just beside the Capitol building. We also went to the Museum of the American Indian. Cameron and Jamie loved both places and we'll have to go back to the museum when we have more time. After studying Native Americans during Thanksgiving they were really interested in seeing more about the way people used to educational!
This is Granny Tina and the boys.
