Linking up with Emma at The Beetle Shack for a round up our life this week with our Weekly Stills.

Cross Country this week with all the teams.

James was born in November 2003 so he has to run with all the 2003 people rather than his grade.  Because he was born in November, 2003 and not anytime in 2004 he had to run 2.4 kms rather than the 1.6 km.  He came 13th which was great given we had done no training.

My smiley little face Sienna at the Oval.

And off they went, Sienna is in the green and yellow with pig tales at the first yellow marker on the left.  Poor little thing her skirt is a little big and she had to hang on to it as she ran.  I should have put a safety pin in it as with all that running she could have ended up at the finish line in her undies.

And coming towards the finish line only a few metres to go.

Some Easter pics which didn't get posted as I had lots of camping photos last week to show.

The Easter Egg Hunt in the back yard.

Found them she says with pride.

And James is already into eating his.

And a cuddly one of James and Sienna together, something which 10 year old brothers aren't fond of.

James and Sienna sitting on the trampoline practising card shuffle tricks.  James was teaching Sienna how to do it and I was thrilled at his willingness to do this.

A bit of backyard ping pong on Anzac Day.  Our backyard is perfect as it gets the morning sun and by 2 pm or so half of it is in mostly filtered shade and makes playing in the yard perfect.

Easter Monday "Chilli Fish" at Granny's place (my Mum).  This dish has been tradition in our family for Easter Monday for years now and we all look forward to our once a year Chilli Fish.  

Family dinner by candle light and I was taking the photo but my dinner was ready and waiting.

We didn't do any early morning Anzac Service and instead opted to go down to the local memorial in the afternoon to pay our respects.

And a closer look at all the flowers.

At the local Anzac Memorial

Some Poppy Wreaths at the Memorial.

And of course Sienna and I made some Anzac Biscuits.

Our first ALF match of the season yesterday and you can see James was thrilled for it to start.
