Celebrating 7

January 21, 2019

I’ve just had the best birthday ever, filled with good food, family, my best mates and hours of nerf action.

Turning 6

January 21, 2018

Cake for breakfast, followed by opening presents, making lego Star Wars ships, going to the movies and eating out at Los Cucos.

So far 6 is the best year ever!!!





Rafa’s Jiu Jitsu Birthday

Turning 8

December 30, 2017

I’m five!

January 21, 2017

My morning started with a pancake breakfast, followed by pressies and a morning of playing with my new toys.

Then I had some buddies around for a party. What a great way to turn 5!

Ana’s 7th Birthday Party

January 3, 2017

I had the coolest ‘pink and black’ party – A big treasure hunt all over the house (the boys won), Secret Agent Broken Phone (the girls won), pizza, chocolate cake and the coolest pressies! I still had a big smile on my face when I went to bed!

one down.

bottom toothless!


ready for the tooth fairy!

The annual check up

March 15, 2016

This morning we had our annual check up (yes, a little late – Mum’s fault). The doctor was impressed that he hadn’t seen us since our last annual check up so let’s at least give her some credit for that. Ana grew 4 inches in 2015. No wonder she gets growing pains! As for me: I’ve grown almost 4 inches myself, and packed on 6 pounds. Eye test, check. Hearing test, check (once I got the hang of it). Balancing on one foot, too easy! And those shots? Not a single tear. I’m far too interested in what it’s all about to notice any stings.



More of four

January 23, 2016

But wait! There’s more to turning four…. A couple of my bestest buddies came over for burgers and cake last night. It was such a late night we were all too knackered to blog after everyone went home and we’ve all just had an afternoon nap trying to catch up on sleep. It was one wild party!


January 21, 2016

Up at the crack of dawn eating King Cake for breakfast…. hey that’s weird?


It’s all ‘cos I’m turning FOUR today!


At afternoon tea time Mum turned up at the office with birthday cupcakes for me and my friends.


and everyone sang; HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO RAFA!


then it was present time!


A power cut meant we had to get the flashlights out to put together the train set


The power cut didn’t bother me AT ALL because it also meant we had to order in Pizza – just as the delivery guy turned up the lights came back on. Good timing Pepperonis!


Yep, I’ve had a good day and I’m one happy four year old!
