Now back on the ground again!  This was when we took a holiday in beautiful Golden Bay last month.  This was inside one of the deep dark caves.  That's me in holding the baby in the front pack, then my five other kids in front of me and brother and his fiance to the right.  I love how we're all looking interested (totally unstaged btw) and it kind of looks like Kimberly is trying to get signal on her cellphone (although she's trying to take a picture too).

I found it really interesting when they turned the lights off, there was absolutely no light.  Nothing at all your eyes could adjust to, just absolute darkness.  Pretty freaky.

VANESSA - I thought that was your Dad!!! And can I ask why the adults all get protective headgear but the kids are left without? haha (21 Dec 09 12:15am)

UPDATE: The ballet photos are now online - click on the following link for more info:

Today was the Snow White and the Seven Dwarves ballet production.  My girls have been involved in ballet since they were about 4, and it's the highlight of the year for them to perform on stage.  This year, like last, we photographed it for all of the parents.  Here are just a few highlights for now.

This is my Emily.

Snow White and some rather nasty looking characters.  I would stay away from that apple, personally.

This is my oldest, Kimberly.

Three of the seven dwarves, the heros in this story.

My Georgia is the one on the right.  She does have a very pretty face too, I just like this one as a legs shot!

So, I've narrowed the photos down to just over a thousand.  Silly, isn't it?  Paul will be uploading them to a gallery for all you parents to go through.  Not sure when exactly, but hopefully soon!

This was when we went to Pupu Springs last month.  This just appealed to my sense of humour!

This is Sam, our one and only son.  He's a very happy fellow, considering that he is surrounded by 5 sisters.  He'll be learning so much patience, he's going to make someone an awesome husband one day!

This is our wee Sophie.  Probably the cutest toddler walking the planet right now.  Full of spunk, she's a two year old worth having around.

This is Charlotte Katie about an hour or so after she was born back in July.  I can just stare at this photo forever.   What a miracle that this grew inside me, and it's a whole person.  Just a very small one.  She's 4 months old now and brimming with cute smily happiness.  We all love her a lot.

It's been a lovely first week, getting to know little Charlotte.  She is an absolute joy to have around!

This was her and I just a couple of hours after she was born.

Only a week later, and she's already over having her photo taken!

I know it seems a bit greedy to have 6 kids - but when they keep coming out so cute, it's terribly difficult to stop!  It's over so quickly, this tiny baby stage, and I'm loving every minute of it.

Thanks to everyone for your patience, I feel myself getting back into things now though - so very soon emails should be replied to quicker, photos edited again and packages will be sent out!
