Matthew has just turned two. So Susan and Paul put on a party for him. There was a good crowd and lots of good food. Sandwiches cut into jigsaws were a novel approach. Susan is a very creative caterer.
Baby Lizzie got a lot of attention as she is still only days old. I think all the ladies in sight got a cuddle. She was passed from one lady to another without a break. So she slept well.
Matthew spent a lot of time on the trampoline with the other children. One of Susan's friends brought along her two little blonde daughters and both of them enjoyed the trampoline too. The 5 year old was particularly pretty and I said to her mother that she will probably be a model when she grows up. But her mother said that she wouldn't make the height. She is a bit small for a 5 year old and models have to be at least 5'8', preferably taller.
Dusty quietly wandered around by himself in his usual amiable way. Sahara and Russ were absent with the 'flu. Davey and Olivia turned up with their little daughter. Davey looked well, considering.
Ken was very involved with political discussions and Paul was appalled at Palmer and Katter giving the Greens their preferences in the Senate. You have to understand the Australian electoral system to understand what that is all about, however.
Even the birthday cake was in jigsaw shape
Who is that old guy in the background as Matthew is opening his presents?
