Abbey's first house

Hi there. I've finally finished Abbey's cubby house. Luckily she loves it - she will ever know the amount of hours, the number of splinters, the many times I swore (under my breath), or the amount of mistakes I made along the way - but that is what being a parent is about I am discovering! I loved making it anyway - it has been a good learning curve for me and it has made me realise that even if I could, I would never want to build my own house!! We are all well here, not much to tell. Talk to you all soon.

Due to popular demand.... more photos of Abbey!

Taken just this morning - she props herself up on my lap to try and steal my breakfast!

Rugged up for a rainy walk in the floods a couple of weeks ago

Not much to report from us... 5 weeks to go til we arrive in Albury, then Melbourne, then Bendigo. We are really looking forward to it but we're both a little freaked out about how much work we both have to fit in between now and then (probably not as freaked out as our friends Rach & Lyndon who will be having twins between now and then!)

The cubby house is really progressing (2 walls, roof and floor) and Abbey already LOVES it. Phil's been a bit crook with a cold, I've been enjoying some beautiful walking weather and have ventured out onto the Larapinta Trail and to the Desert Park a couple of times.

My Dad got engaged to his partner of 7 years on the weekend which is pretty cool and hopefully will mean a bonus trip to Bendigo or if I can convince him to wait a bit longer a wedding at Christmas time :) We are SUPER excited about Dave and Michelle's pregnancy news and can't wait for Abbey to have a little Cowan Cousin.

Love to you all, KP&A xx
