Happy Birthday Corbin

Yes today is Corbins 7th Birthday.

He woke up very excited this morning, took his ABR machine off by himself and came into my bed for a cuddle. Yes he may be 7 but he's not too big for a cuddle with Mum! Within minutes Corbin asks "Do I look bigger?" So precious and innocent...

He had 3 friends from school around for a small party this afternoon which was all very exciting. Then the family came around for a combined tea with little cousin Meah who shares the same birthday. Meah is 2 today.

Corbin wanted a hedgehog cake so thats what I made him - very easy really, just fudge cake moulded in a bowl, iced with chocolate icing and decorated with chocolate buttons.

School Holidays Again

Well school holidays are underway.
The spring holiday weather isnt at all like spring so far but at least the snow is gone and some of the water that was lying for days after the snow melted is gone too.

Miss Livee is pleased it is too miserable to go outside. She got her cast off yesterday and was told no sports, trampolines, anything with wheels or running around for 4 weeks. This is like asking a bear not to poo in the woods. In her words "I might as well be in jail!" and "why didnt they just leave the cast on?" The last a very good point I think!!!

We haven't got much planned except one very important event on Wednesday 29 September. Watch this space to find out what...........

Photos of the snow

This is post card view from our lounge of our old shed complete with freezing cold and hungry sheep with baby lambs huddling for shelter...

The top one is of Miss Livee enjoying the snow.

The third is Master Corbin playing in the snow (The little dark blob in the middle behind his "snowman"). He was so excited about the snow, until he discovered that when you are sitting in 15cm deep snow you get cold really fast.

Today it snowed in Invercargill. The first time snow has settled on the ground in Invercargill for 6 years. So obviously Corbin has never seen it like this before. I have been trying to post some photos but for some reason I can't. So watch this space....

The School Production

This is a photo of Corbin in the their school production. Corbins class were robots and they did a little robot dance. Corbin was the robot arms and his little friend helping was the robot legs. Corbin had a great night and was so excited because this was his first school production. (We missed last years because we were in Sydney for ABR)

The Fathers Day Card

Today is Corbins Dads birthday and tomorrow is fathers day in NZ (A big weekend with lots of chocolate no doubt). Corbin made his Dad this beautiful card at school and this is what it says:

"My Dad can play rugby better than Dan Carter in a scrum at the stadium. My Dad is an amazing helper and the greatest play fighter ever and the best boxer ever. I like my Dad and he likes me." Love Corbin
