We now have a 7year old and a 4year old in the house – can you believe it! Where has the time go?! Our boys really had amazing birthday celebrations this year. They both took cupcakes/cake to school for their friends, both chose a restaurant to have dinner at on the actual night of their birthdays and both had individual parties this year. To say that they were spoilt rotten is an understatement. But it was so special and it warmed our hearts to see them both so happy. Here are some pics of the last week or so…
Ethan’s school cupcakes made by me 🙂
Floating target shooting game from nana…excited much?! (This is before the tooth fell out so please excuse the crooked teeth in this pic ;-))
The birthday boy dressed in civvies for school!
Soccer themed cake made by nana ❤
Ready to get into the cake!
Riley’s school cake made by me 🙂 He chose the sprinkles himself and asked for vanilla cake.
Half asleep opening his Ben10 watch from the mum and dad.
Spidey cake for his party compliments of nana ❤
At the good old Spur 🙂
Since then, Ethan has lost both his top two front teeth! Riley is still patiently waiting for school to end (they have the most amazing Christmas programme which I just didn’t want him to miss AND Santa is coming to school tomorrow on the last day…) and today is the official day that we put our Christmas tree up…12days before Christmas 🙂 🙂 🙂 So lots is happening in my world!
In other news, tomorrow is my last day of work for 2018. Can I get an A-MEN! I know we were away not too long ago, but it feels like forever since I’ve had a break. This year, we’re staying in Jo’burg for the festive season. Christmas Eve will be at my parents’ place. For those of you wondering how we’re going to be in Durban for one night only, keep up with the news guys! My parents have been living semi-permanently in Jo’burg since about May/June this year. So we’ll start with children’s mass at 5:30pm on Christmas Eve, then head over to them for curry and Christmas Eve festivities. Christmas Day will be a full breakfast at our place (a tradition that we’re keeping from the last two years) and then a full roast with salads and dessert late on Christmas Day afternoon/evening. In that way, we get to eat everything, but all spread out i.e. we pace ourselves.
I would still like to blog about my 2018 year…highlights, lessons learnt etc. so this isn’t goodbye for this year just yet. But if I’m quiet, I’ll be living my best life ❤
So ciao for now xxx
