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!

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!

Four!!!

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

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!

The 42 hour birthday celebration

December 30, 2015

I managed to get a 42 hour birthday by starting it in New Zealand, making a morning wish on Takapuna beach and having birthday cake in Cornwall park, then finishing my birthday in Texas where Mum and Papi gave me a My Little Pony Castle. Jet lagged and still in my travelling clothes the Castle is already involved in battle and being protected by Rafa’s soldiers.

Guess what I don’t need any more!

I’m the birthday boy

January 21, 2015
Birthdays are the coolest invention ever!  When I got home from school today there were trucks and cars, bikes, trains and planes all over my bedroom wall.
