Winter Time is Here

If you are lucky enough to live in the southern hemisphere, then you will know that winter has finally got here.

Well at least the rain and wind has got here to the North Island of New Zealand, if you are in the South Island then you have got the rain, the wind and unfortunately the snow as well.

So what do you do with 2 small boys when the weather is so awful outside..........?

You give them a cardboard box to play with.......

Or get daddy to pretend to be a horse!

Dummy Connoisseur

We have in our mids a person with such a fine nose for dummies! He knows the colour, shape and smell of each one and even knows all the pictures on them.

After his bath each night he gets a clean one and he even tells you which one he would like today. Maybe the lion one, the giraffe one or even go all out and have the teddy bear one.

Who knows, but his most wonderful moment is when he manages to get 2 at the same time, then he is in dummy heaven!!

2nd Birthday

Alex has just had his 2nd birthday. What a big boy he is now. We had a lovely day with presents in the morning, a trip to see the butterflies at lunchtime and a small party in the afternoon for cake and drinks.

Alex was lucky enough to have a Barney cake, mummy was very lucky to find a cake that had Alex's favourite character on it.
Alex was very lucky to get a new car for his birthday. Every little boy dreams of a new car.
We had a family outing for Alex's birthday to Butterfly Creek wonderful place full of butterflies and fish, a petting zoo for the children and a small train to ride on. As you can see Ben loved the guinea pigs, but he also liked the little baby rabbits as well.
