Rain, Hail or Shine

April 26th, 2015 by Trent

Over the last week Sydney has seen some crazy weather!
Record weather that hasnt been that bad in 10 years. Storms, winds and rain like you have never see before!
Yesterday was an example of crazy weather! I took the kids the bike track in the morning. It was so hot I wore a tshrt and jeans. Demi actually got sunburnt on her chest – sunglasses and all!

At about 5pm all changed! A storm came, then rain and then HAIL, so much HAIL it went on for about 20 minutes non stop!
The kids were a bit frightened and Demi screamed!

After it was all over we actually enjoyed the crazy wonderland our backyard had changed into. It looked like snow and the kids had a ball! There was ice everywhere! They jumped on the trampoline which was covered in ice too!
A very memorable evening….

Demi and her first tooth fairy visit

April 10th, 2015 by Trent

Tonight Demi lost her first tooth – she was wanting this night to happen for a very long time!!!

She lost the same bottom tooth Liam lost when he had his first visit from the tooth fairy just a month after his 5th birthday.

Demi wrote a gorgeous letter and has left her tooth in a special tooth fairy container she got from Booba a very few years ago.

She cant wait to wake up tomorrow and see what the tooth fairy left.

I think it will be a letter and so money!

April 8th, 2015 by Trent

Liam was given his Geursey for the Eastern Bulldogs and it is number 12. He plays his first match on Sunday 19th April in Paddington!

Everyday he is talks NON STOP about AFL – obsessed is an under statement!

Yesterday, Booba and Pappa bought him his first pair of footie boots and he has started practicing with them in the backyard 🙂

Stay tuned for footie season updates!!!

Backyard Camping

April 4th, 2015 by Trent

The other week we decided to spend the night in a 3-man tent in our backyard!!! We had a BBQ dinner, toasted marshmellows and watched the Ratatouille movie on Dad’s laptop. We all managed to sleep from 10pm to 6am 🙂 Demi didnt let us do much talking as we went to sleep she told everyone to be quiet!

It was lots of fun and I am sure we will do it again.

We are now on school holidays and finished term 1 of year 1 and 2.

Liam is enjoying AFL, Karate, Swimming and Chess every week. Demi is enjoying her after school music class.

They both had lovely parent-teacher interviews and they are enjoying school (although there is always something to talk about that we arent happy about!)

Demi’s bottom front tooth is starting to really wobble! She cant wait to see what the tooth fairy will bring her!!! Stay tuned..

Demi LOVED her Jewellery party!

April 4th, 2015 by Trent

We had 10 children including Liam and Demi come to our house on Sunday morning and celebrate her 6th birthday.

We were lucky with the weather and had everyone in the backyard. We had two ladies come with a big collection of colourful beads and each person had a special jewellery making tray to create and build their bracelet and necklace.

The cake was a rainbow that Demi designed and she loved it! Thanks Flaky Tart 🙂

She got lots of lovely craft presents which we will enjoy doing in the holidays.

She also ended up celebrating with two other birthday cakes with family events.
