This is an excerpt from a letter that I received in the mail the other day. I am so stoked that Candace is such a good girl and so bright! She is truly a gem right now. 8 months ago I had almost had it with her attitude and thought I was in for a real uphill battle for the next few years. But somethings happened and I don't know what but she has just turned into the nicest daughter to have! Verry happy most of the time. Obedient. Just an all round good girl. I know I don't have to worry about her doing naughty things either. She is a very trustworthy person. Whew! What a relief. Well, this is my ode to Candace.
This is what she USED to be like on an all too regular basis. Yuck.
Here again, not at her best. But I chuckle when I see this photo. Thanks for the entertainment :)
What a cutie! She has the most beautiful eyes! Bright blue.

Savannah had her first taste of chocolate the other day. I think she's gonna be a chocolate lover just like her Papa. She got all excited on the second time the brownie got close to her face.
Well, who could blame her anyways? I mean, they ARE the best brownie out there and made by yours truly!
The cuplrit. Looking very pleased with himself. He snuck her the brownie btw when I wasn't looking and I didn't really approve but of course couldn't pass up the opportunity to record her first ever chocolate experience.
Here's the recipe. You will NOT be dissapointed! So extremely quick and easy too you'll be amazed. The melts are just baking choc type choc chips.
200 g of chocolate melts (1 1/2 c?)
1/2 c. butter
1 c. caster sugar
2 lightly beaten eggs
1 c. flour
100 g chocolate melts (3/4 c.?)
1/4 c. sour cream
Melt butter and choc melts in double boiler. Add to sugar. Mix. Stir in eggs very well. Add flour mix well. Bake at approx 350 for 25-30 min in square cake pan lined with baking paper. Take out of pan to cool. In the same double boiler melt remaining melts. Turn off heat. Add sour cream and spread on brownies.

Rick is holding Sav under her head only. She has plenty of chub on her to act as a floatation device! Yummy yummy chub!
Yay! Swimming with the Papa!
On the ferry from Hamilton Island to Airlie Beach.
This is the little Cabin we stayed in overnight. It was so cute and perfectly cozy and just my country style. I just hate hotel rooms unless they look like the ones in the movies like the really lush house looking kind. But well, when you can't afford the best then I'd rather have this.
If it was mine though you can bet it would have some heaps cute curtains and bedding. Not this crappy motel style fashion! Yucko!
Home at last and here we are in front of our cute lil Burnt Orange Swift. Who'd a thought I could have the cute kids AND the cute car!?
I just love being out on the water! I definetly have sea legs which confirms to Rick why he married me. I am willing to go out to sea with Mr Sparrow any time!
Rick has the best of both worlds here. He just probably wishes he was at the helm of our very own yacht instead of a ferry. But this is better than scaling the walls of a newly framed house anyday! It was quite windy cuz of the speed of the ferry and a bit sunny for Savvy's little eyes.
Some guy from Sydney took our picture in the hot tub. The hot tub wasn't even hot! It was the temp we wished the pool had been so we were forced to stick to the tub which is why we only stayed in there for about 1/2 an hour.
