Now that the dust has settled on the party, its time for school treats. Every year Edwin takes cupcakes for his classmates and a gift for his teachers to share. So here it is the 2013 birthday treats. Pinwheel cupcakes for classmates and a lollie bouquet for his teacher.
This year boys agreed on a joined birthday party, since we r going to India during christmas holiday. Reporting back on it, it was the best party i ever planned. Since it was for both, it was team work to a whole new level. 🙂
It took almost a month to plan and prepare and it was lot if work, but it was all worth it. The boys had a blast. I made all the little crafts over a month and started cooking and baking a week ago. It all came together in the end by the grace of god..
Edwin is turning 9 this sep and Noel’s turning 5 on Christmas Day. I feel like10 min ago they were newborns and now they are all grown up.
So it’s party time in our household. We had a discussion and Edwin would like to go for Nickelodeon slime fest with his close friend instead of school party and since we are going to India during christmas, both set of parents will be throwing party for Noel.
So we are combining our house party with the theme bike/ scooter for both boys. While looking at party games and decorations, I looked back at our last party. And here it is, few pics from Edwin’s party last year.
I’m pretty persistent, at least that’s what I believe..anyway to the point. I’m forgetting about this little blog of our pretty frequently. So here I’m, trying to convince myself Y I started this at the first place.
Last year, I have done becky Higgins project life to keep our pics and record our memories. Mr wants to do a photo book this year..and we are almost half way this year and I’m starting to get worried that I’m not recording our good memories. Time is flying so quickly and when our house is empty i want our mind to be full of happy memories and have lots and lots of pict and stories to look back on and cherish these wonderful time in our life…
So am I convinced to keep going…I think Im…:)
A happy day!!
Edwin got his first silver award today. In his school, you need to get 3 bronze for a silver and 2 silvers + a bronze will get you the ultimate gold award. Last year he missed gold for just 1 bronze. So he is on a mission this year. His goal is to get a silver + an extra bronze by the end of this term and it looks like he will make it!!
As usual it’s a proud moment, seeing him on the stage. I never miss it for anything. So I was there waiting for the moment he walks up there. The 5 minutes he stood on the stage, I spent taking pics and waving and giving lot of flying kisses. I know, I know, I’m one of those crazy mums. I want this to be one of those nostalgic moments in my life.
Here it is…my little fella, all proud of his achievement!!!
Though I keep it to myself, I always set goals for myself and try to get there. That being said, there were lot of times, I lot interest half way and dropped it. This year, one of goals was to spend some money and time for myself. It may sound strange, but kids are growing up and I’m having more time in my hand to do other things.
Both Eddie and Noelly are going to bed by 8:30 now, which leaves us another 2 hrs to ourselves.so what am I doing with that time. Though I don’t like to admit it, I waste a big chunk of it on www. I know, I know I have to curb it and invest my time in important things.
But something I’m doing which is making me happy and proud is spending my some time on my appearance. I started picking my clothes for next day, believe it nor I even try different combinations with clothes and jewellery and coming up with different outfits. I even made myself a manicure pack with a dozen nail polish colours. It’s some thing I haven’t done for a very very long time and I have to admit I’m loving it!!!
On top of that I’m keeping a record of my workwear. I find that pictures help me to see the outfit more properly and see what works and what doesn’t. I’m not 18 anymore, so my goal is not to dress up, it is to dress well and look polished. So what I’m trying to archive is to find the trends and looks that works for me.
I planning to post the pics in the blog, slim accountable
Today we went for a hungry jacks birthday party and they were playing a game where everyone’s supposed to sit when the music stops. Noel joined in and started dancing in full swing. Music stopped and all the older kids sat down, he looked around wondering whatz gng on and said “what the?”
Edwin went to bed and we were on the couch watching tv and playing with Noel. I told Noel As you both are fighting all the time, I’m gng to put Edwin in the bin. He didn’t say a word, raised his leg and hit me right on my face.
To make fun of miller for not bringing sweets when they came to tell marys expecting, chachan decided to visit them with sweets. When we were about to leave chachan gave hand shake to miller and he said poda and walked away.
