hanging out.....


Daddy captured mummy and I on the weekend, hanging out on the trampoline and having a rest and a chat.....

MEANWHILE....

Luc's idea of hanging out...literally is to be hanging or climbing all over the swing set. Before this photo was taken he was actually standing on the very top beam of the swing set...yikes, no fear that boy!!

8 years old...where DOES the time go!!!

Happy Birthday to Sophie
8 years old today
having and breakfast and wondering....
"do I really need to go to school today"?

So here I am at 8 years old, Mummy came to school to be "parent helper"for the morning.  My teacher wasn't there as she was sick so we had another teacher.  Mummy thought she sounds like "Mrs Doubtfire", you know that movie!!!  Anyhow, she made us get up and tell the class what we want to be when I grow up and I said........"I want to be  a famous netballer"!!  This will probably change about 100 times in the next few years, so don't hold me to it...ok!

I had a great day and a small family party at our house with pizza and cake.  I was pretty tired as I had been awake since 4.45am.......quite excited to be 8!

On Saturday we played mini golf and Daddy, Mummy and I all got holes in one.  Not Luc, he got a hole in about 18.  Daddy said we are not going to be enrolling him in the "Tiger Woods school of golf" anytime soon!

Big catch up......

Well it's been a big few months in the world of Sophie and Luc, apologies if you were thinking that aliens had come down and abducted us and taken us back to their world....(you know you were thinking it!!)  We have been very, very busy and important, places to be, things to see......so here is it is in words and pictures what we have been doing......
Luc found a new "love".  The little drummer boy has quite the talent...oh dear, not sure we are ready for  a drummer in the family!!

Sophie looking beautiful as always.......

Lots and lots of baby Kai gazing and lots and lots of arguments on who gets to hold him next.  Kai is the very BEST sleeping baby ever.....and so gorgeous!

Sophie got her ears pierced and talked of nothing else for at least  3 days...."how do I sleep with ear rings"???  "How do I get dressed"??  "Can I still do cart wheels and hand stands"?  Some of the funny things that came out of her mouth......I guess getting ears pierces is that "life changing" in her eyes (well in her ears at least!!!)

Looking grown up....

Nanny took Sophie to the ballet to see "Sleeping Beauty"...3 hours of lovely dancing and enjoyed by them both!
Daddy had a birthday and turned 44 years young.....We made him a cake!
Blowing out the candles.....had to have 2 sparklers instead as Daddy thought 44 candles may light the whole house on fire!!

Baby Kai...always sleeping...!

Cousin Havana had her 2nd birthday and had a party in the garden...

Yummy cake Aunty Jane made...Sari and Luc were pretty excited about it as well.

Sophie's friend Indiana had a "rockstar" themed 8th birthday party.  LOt
