Little Miss L is a bit under the weather.
But happy she has dogs on her jarmies.
Our new household members arrived last night.
You have never seen two more excited children when they arrived home last night. And this morning the excitement is still palpable.
Here’s hoping we didn’t get any roosters!
On the way to Quinn’s birthday party. Dad says,
“what are you guys going to do for your birthdays?”
Me: “I’m going to have an icecream sundae party”
A few minutes pass in silence while Oscar contemplates the question.
Oscar: “I’m going to have an icecream Thursday party!”
O overcame his fear of the animatronic dinosaur exhibit at the museum today so we finally had a good look (third time lucky)!
Luna was unfazed.
so it is the 30th of November.
I have one exam to go then I’m finished with university (for the moment)! Yay.
My mind is already turning to when I’ll have oodles of spare time (comparatively). Or at least less brain-consuming-should-be-studying-worrisome spare time and more what-the-heck-do-whatever-you-want spare time.
I got to work this morning and decided that I needed to capture some information about the Christmas food plans in my head. So I started a board on pinterest. Thinking I had heaps to add.
And ended up with 3 dessert/sweet items. Oh, just thought of another. Make that four.
Thoughts and suggestions welcome!
What are you looking forward to eating/cooking?
Arriving home on Sunday afternoon after spending the day at the office working on an assignment, I noticed little O was drinking a juice that we hadn’t had in the house that morning.
I’d already asked C what they’d got up to that day whilst I was gone, and he had said, “not much, just mooched about”…
But little O set me straight:
Me: “Did you go shopping today & get a juice?”
O: “Yes, see!”
Me: “Where did you go shopping?”
O: “To the shop that sells burgers and chips.“
Cue lots of laughing and sheepish looks from C.
Dear Little Miss L,
or, as you are more frequently called in our house: boo boo.
Boo boo. Derived from Boona. Which rhymes with Luna. As in Luna Boona, shortened to Boo boo. Of course.
I feel remiss in a number of ways. Not only did your first birthday pass without my mentioning it here, but as I have sheepishly admitted to a number of people, it was so uneventful that we even forgot to take a photo of you on the day.
So, a belated public Happy Birthday my darling.
You are a cheerful, happy, rotund and gleeful little even-tempered darling. We all love you dearly, most of all perhaps your brother. Who climbs into your cot each morning to play as soon as he wakes up. We wake most mornings to the sound of the two of you giggling gleefully from your room.
And often at night that is the sound of you going to bed too: you and Oscar playing “the giggle game” with each other from separate rooms (you both quickly worked out it was a game that could be played without the need to see each other)…
Luna, you are beautiful and we love you very much.
It’s been a crazy week of birthdays… A quick post to share a photo or two.
We celebrated O’s 3rd Birthday in the park on the weekend with a robot and rocket party.
What does that look like? Lots of big refrigerator boxes all joined up to make a robot spaceship, decorated with stickers and stick-ons. Filled with small children popping their heads up through the funny windows and openings. And crawling between all the adjoining boxes like crazy.
Lots of fruit for morning tea.
And, of course, a robot cake. Which the smallest one managed to swipe icing off while I was trying to light the candles!
Happy Robot Birthday my beautiful boy!
