We had our friend Mollie (who Ruth lived with in college) come to visit this weekend, and she brought her daughter Lucy.

It was great to see them both, Hannah and Lucy got on really well, but it seemed like Thomas felt a bit outnumbered!

We're all going on a Winter holiday...

We've had a great time this week, staying in the Norfolk holiday cottage that we rented, even though the weather hasn't been brilliant.

As well as partying for Mum's birthday, we've been to a Play Barn, Sea-Life Centre, and on lots of muddy walks!

Here is a photo of Fairy Hannah practising her magic dance!

And here, Farmer Hannah and Farmer Thomas are having races around the cottage garden in their tractors.

Driving seemed to be a theme for our holiday... I'm glad it's at least another 13 years before Hannah can apply for a driving licence!

On one of our muddy walks, Thomas seems to be sinking slowly into the mud! Luckily he manages to keep his footing...

Unfortunately, Cousin Anya wasn't so lucky, and this photo shows the after effects of her sit down in the biggest, muddiest, stickiest, wettest puddle that we came across on our walk. She knows how to choose them!

Happy Birthday, Mummy!

Mummy had an extra special birthday this year, as we spent it whilst on holiday in Norwich.

We needed to leave lots of our suitcases behind, in order to fit all of the presents that she took with her, but we managed to arrive safely on the Saturday, ready for the party on the Sunday!

We were staying in a cottage near Uncle Tim, Auntie Abby, Chloe and Anya's house, so they all came around on the Sunday to join the fun.

They even brought a fantastic home-made jelly island cake, which tasted as delicious as it looks!

Happy Birthday, Nan-Nan!

It was Nan-Nan's turn to have a birthday this week (they come thick and fast in February), so we all headed off to Auntie Glenys' and Uncle Ricky's house to join the party and to eat cake before their two massive Golden Retrievers, Taffy and Dewi, get hold of it!

Caught in the act!

The noise of the cupboard door should have made us go to see what was up.

The unusual quietness coming from the kitchen should have made us go to see what was up.

The rustle of a cereal packet in the middle of the afternoon should have made us go to see what was up.

Unfortunately, we didn't go to investigate until we heard the patter-patter of cereal falling into a bowl, and then onto a table, and then onto the floor!

I guess Thomas was just feeling hungry!

Happy Birthday, Nanny!

After Nanny's 'Big Bash' last year for her 60th, the celebrations this year were much more peaceful and relaxing!

A quiet (or as quiet as it gets with three small children running around) meal at our house, complete with required cake and candles, was enjoyed by everyone.

... and blow!

Even Uncle Mike enjoyed the party, but he fell asleep, bless him, because he'd just a couple of hours ago had some wisdom teeth taken out, so he was still drugged up!

Wake up Uncle Mike!
