We Have Piggies!!

Yes, it's very exciting...we have two new family members! Meet Nibbles...


And Gizmo...


These little sweethearts came home with us yesterday, and they are completely adored already. They seem to love sitting on the couch with the kids, watching tv!



These little girls were actually part of Emily's b-day present. She has been wanting guinea pigs for quite a while now, so for her birthday I got her this guinea pig house...



It's such a cute little house. Well, it's really quite spacious, with a big grassy run underneath, and a ramp going to the upper level, with is nice and cozy and protected. Em is in love with her babies, (and I have to admit, I've fallen for them too. They are just so adorable :)) Em had a pretty quiet birthday this year. For her party, she just wanted a sleep over with her two favourite girls, Jessica and Natasha, and for me to take them to Australia Zoo, which we did a couple of weekends ago. Unfortunately it rained all weekend, so it was pretty dismal at the zoo...


But the girls still had fun, so that's all that matters! Luckily mum came along with us, so I wasn't walking around wet and miserable all by myself! We only stayed for a few hours, but that was definately enough for me! After we got home, and dried off, it was off to Macca's for dinner! Originally Em wanted to go to Sizzler, but then changed her mind to McDonalds, so they could play on the playground. I didn't really care where we went, so long as it was dry! The girls had fun of course, and played for AGES!


Then it was home again, where we baked some cupcakes, and then watched a movie.


The girls all slept out in the lounge room, and were up giggling until around 11.30. Then the next morning we had pancakes for brekkie, and then it was time to ice the cupcakes...


Did you notice their matching t-shirts? We blinged them up with the Imaginisce I-rock. So fun, and the girls loved it :)

Then a bit of craft...decorating their party bags...


Em had a great time at her little sleepover, and I think I got off soooo easy with the party this year. I hardly had to do anything, not even make the cake!! We had a family party on the night of her actual birthday, but I hardly got any decent photos. Em was being very uncooperative :( Here's the few I did get... This is the crazy looking doll that mum made for Emma...which Em has called "Buttons". She loves it!

More presents...she certainly did pretty well (as usual!), and got heaps of Barbie stuff, a hammock swing thing for her playground, clothes, crafty stuff, a book...and $140. She was pretty happy :)

Here's the b'day cake shot, of the "chocolatey cake with chocolate on top"...


And this is the only family shot I got...Em with her grandpa and poppy...


And then yesterday, Em got her Sizzlers lunch, (where she only eats the potato skins and icecream), and a day out shopping to spend her birthday money...she bought MORE Barbie stuff, craft things, a necklace, a Lego(for Jack), and a basketball.


Thanks for all the birthday wishes left for Em on my blog on Friday. I showed them all to her and she was thrilled :) :)

Wow! Her birthday sounds like a lot of fun... I would love to visit Australia one day...
Your piggies are too cute...wish we could have some we tried to get my son who is 10 a guinea pig on New Years eve and we fell in love with the little guy..that night my son started itching and thinking maybe we didn't clean the cage out that well we took everything out and cleaned it over..by the next day he had welts all over his body...he was allergic to the guinea pig..we were so sad to take him back...I already knew he was allergic to cats but thought guinea pigs might be different...he wants a pet so bad...So, I'm so glad that your little girl can have one and she looks quite happy...and Wow! what a guinea pig house...
