weekly Round up and getting ready for Easter

Hi Everyone,

I hope that you are all set for the Easter Bunny and the Easter holiday starting tomorrow. There has been alot of excitement and anticipation in our household and alot of activities to get ready for  Easter Sunday!! Lucy and Hollie and I went to Jo's today to make hot cross buns and some salt dough and the kids had a great time- we did one lot by hand and one in the bread mixer!! Lots of photos coming up- Hollie and Callum are so cute together - they see each other most days- Callum called in yesterday after kindy to see Hollie- Jo had already explained that Hollie was at preschool - but he wanted to come and check to make sure- he had the sweetest look of disappointment that mum had been right!! Today when we caught up they didn't stop hugging each other for about 5 minutes and Jo showed me Callum's chalk drawings- there was Callum and Mum and Dad, Granny and Auntie Pip and Hollie- she rates right up there as one of his favourite people- and the feeling is mutual!!

Ready to go

Tada- the finished product

Taste test verdict YUM!

Of course while we were waiting for the dough to rise there was time to go to the park and have a play! On the way we saw the green rubbish truck!! Hollie just LOVES the rubbish truck and everytime we see one is sooo excited- she even wanted a rubbish truck cake for her birthday last week!!! (too hard for mum that one!) So you can imagine the excitement one day that we saw 7 rubbish trucks all in a row going to the dump- !! It is so funny the things that they get so excited about!
