Dylan was supposed to be getting ready for school today and I caught him making faces at himself in oven door, which is glass. I had to laugh because I guess I have to admit that I have been known to practice making faces at myself in many shiny surfaces. I GET this kid. Good thing for him, otherwise he might be in trouble a lot more often! Also, whenever we try to get a picture of him without him pulling a Calvin, this is what happens. At the last second, what looked like it was going to be a 'normal' face turns into one like this for example. Gotta love him.

The kids seem to have struck our computer again with some sort of forgetting charm. It has been wiped clean of all of the programs that we use every day, although thankfully internet explorer has been left intact. So emails are not getting to us at the moment, hope to have the problem fixed soon. Meanwhile, all continues to run more or less smoothly at the ranch. Hannes and Dylan still fight, Alinya still sleeps most of the time and Liam is still adorable. All in all, normal life continues. The highlights of my week so far have been Dylan mentioning that my stomach is still really big and a school chum of Hannes' asking what language is your grandma speaking? (and she was referring to ME!!) What is going on here? Is it a conspiracy to drive me to the brink, or drive me to drink?

Dylan and Hannes must have been playing with the camera..hence this funny one of Dylan. Yes, I know, the shots of Alinya are mostly sleeping ones, but that is really what she does most of the time. She does have active periods but unfortunately they aren't long and usually happen in the middle of the night, when noone else wants to play! Especially me! Liam is asking to get out of the tub and get dressed, he wants to wear a tie today he says, so we had better see what we can find that looks good with a t-shirt.
