Feliz Cumpleaños Papi

November 14, 2014

Papi’s birthday is today, but some how he managed to open all his presents before today.

Special macciatto coffee cups.

We gave him the macchiato coffee cups last Saturday morning because we knew he’d love to use them for his morning coffee.

And a komodo grill which a neighbour helped him set up and we've already taken for a test run last weekend.

And he opened his komodo grill last Sunday so a neighbour could help him set it up.

Which meant the only thing left to do tonight was relax.

I got a key chain with an "A" for Ana on it and these pretty flower hair clips.

And Rafa got a truck with a surf board on top (That was just like Papi's Dad's old truck, but without the surf board) and a ball that is a globe.

Papi bought Mum another mask for the collection (and this one isn't broken!) and a pretty hair clip a bit like mine.

And THEN he pulled out all the conference goodies.  Monsters and a bear.  More balls and a super cool hard hat flash light that is very handy for me so I can see in the dark.  Raffy and I went to bed with all our goodies.  Which of course, had to all fit in our beds with us.

A surprise for Papi

February 26, 2014

We’ve been working very hard all week on a surprise for Papi.

We started it on Saturday morning.

And worked on it some more on Sunday.

Mum helped me out when Rafa was asleep.

We worked on it on Monday after school.

We did some more on Monday night, staying up an extra 15 minutes after bed time.

And I put the finishing touches on last night.  I hope he likes it!

He’s going to be home soon.  We were going to show you what he thought of it on this post but it’s already getting late so you’ll have to wait for tomorrow to see his reaction.  We hope he likes it!

Papi working really hard

May 15, 2013

Papi is away for work again.  He swears he’s working really hard.  He sent us photographic evidence.

Yep, that's Papi at the back being strangled by the mascot.  Apparently it's all part of the job.

Papi’s big day

November 14, 2012

It’s Papi’s birthday… not just any birthday, but the BIG 4-OH!  (I can’t even count to that number yet).

I was disappointed that at his birthday breakfast there was no cake (what was Mum thinking?!) so I suggested he wear a birthday hat. It is a party after all!

We gave him a bottle of Fernet Branca (and coke), and sat him down in front of the iPad to open over 50 surprise messages from friends and family all around the world.

Papi couldn’t stop smiling, laughing, clapping, yahooing (and a little teary) as he looked at each of his messages. A mixture of kind words, photos, videos, you tube clips and birthday jokes. He went off to work with a BIG birthday smile from ear to ear. Our mission was accomplished.

Papi has requested roast for dinner tonight (nice one Papi), but still no cake!  What the?!?

Feliz Cumpleaños Papi!  Te queremos mucho!  Ana Lucia y Rafael.

Papi’s return from Down Under

August 28, 2011

Papi has just returned from Australia with not one, not two but THREE jars of vegemite.

I guess that means I can claim one just for me. I'm off to make a sandwich.

For my US friends that are still confused about this stuff, I’ve written about vegemite not so long ago.  See here.

Papi’s attempt at pigtails

Papi did my hair this morning.

Do you think he'll be offended if I ask Mum to re do it?

Getting around the neighbourhood

I like to travel by foot around the neighbourhood.

But travel by shoulders is WAY more fun.
