Tags: Gigi, Rocky, sick, TJ, William
It’s been an interesting day, with pretty much the whole family sick. Rocky is already our barfiest child, with nearly every surface of the floor and furniture christened with his stomach juices. For the last couple of days he’s been unable to keep anything down. It’s only after he passed on his stomach flu that he started to show improvement. That gives the rest of us hope.
Here he is yesterday:
Then William decided to get in on the fun.
I admit, he doesn’t exactly look like he’s having fun, but trust me, he probably is, deep down.
The older two went to school as usual, seemingly feeling no effects, which was good. Thankfully I was just going to the office near me so I dropped them off. When it came time for school to be over, Sharole made a phone call to see if one of the other mothers would take them for a while. She graciously accepted. But then just as she was herding them out the door to bring our two home, Gigi christened their house with a massive vomit all over the floor. The mother told me she probably brought up all her stomach contents in that one go. (I apologised as profusely as I knew how..)
With the older kids, I had a slight hope that they would be able to… direct their spew a bit more, and I gave them bowls and buckets to use. As you can see, the targeting system was as spot on as a child’s can be.
And in case you’re wondering what Sharole looked like, well, let’s just say it’s not great, and leave it at that. I won’t be posting any pictures of the state she’s in at the moment.

All year William has been after a porcipine cake (aka echidna). Seemed pretty easy which I was grateful for. We decided not to make it till the Family to-do on Sunday. Along with Rocky’s cake.
Happy Birthday William
He woke up to a table with presents on it. Nana got hers here in plenty of time and so he was able to open that up also. We kept his big present back till Sunday for the family gathering.
His birthday fell on Friday this year. So I decided to take him back to the Wiggles World for the day, he loved it last year. Turns out it was closing at the end of the month so good timing really. I asked if his friends wanted to come along (Eli and Benji, I didn’t ask Levi since I knew Tammie was working), he said doesn’t matter if they don’t he wants to go anyway. Ok fine. Then on the Thursday afternoon he said he wanted Gigi to go with him and so I thought why not. He was also quite specific that he didn’t want to TJ to go. TJ didn’t seem too put out by that, so that is what we did. Gigi took the day off school and TJ went to school. In the end one of his friends came, Eli. It was a nice day, and the time sure went by quickly, till it was time to pick TJ up.
For dinner we had pancakes and ice cream, everyone was happy about that.
Willy had his cake on Sunday and I noticed that it went rather quickly, might of had something to do with the mint sticks for the spikes.
William’s big gift was a John Deere Tip truck, he loves playing in dirt and making mud pies and moving dirt here and there, he also really likes flowers. I said to him, looks like you might enjoy being a landscaper like Uncle Rory, he said whats that, so I explained, he said maybe, or a fireman.

Tags: birthday cake, William, William's birthday
William picked a frog for his cake this year.
Once again it was a combined effort from Toby and I. We actually make a good team when it comes to cake making. I make the cake, and shape it. Toby ices the cake and does the tubing. I then do the finishing touches. The kids love it and makes for a nice memory for them, and not a huge expense.
We had Gran and Granddad come over as did Uncle Gregg, Aunty Mel and Tom. We had a nice evening. Nana was here also, naturally.
As a special treat for William for his birthday we took him to Wiggleland with his Amegoes – Eli and Benji. They had a great time playing. William loves the Wiggles, Captain feathersword was the last of his collection of the Wiggles stuffed toys.
William loved us all singing happy birthday to him.
And lastly a picture of mummy and Willy together
Toby and Nana took the kids to Taronga Zoo for a special family/birthday outing located on Sydney Harbour. They had a great day, took the ferry to and from our house and sadly the camera was forgotten so no pictures
The kids enjoyed talking about it for days, all the animals they saw etc…..

We had a lovely time celebrating Williams 2nd birthday. We got a pleasant surprise with cousin Ezra and Aunty Nicky coming up for it with Gran. William and Ezra got on so well this visit, like 2 peas in a pod.
Uncle Seth, Louise, Hannah and Lucy came to visit along with Uncle Gregg, Aunty Mel and Tom for cake time and singing William “Happy Birthday”. William loved it tellinge veryone he’s now 2and I heard William telling Ezra later that Uncle Gregg loves me like three time.
This year we took a trip to the Aquarium in the city for an activity leading up to Willy’s birthday and so in the end I decided to make a shark cake for him. My first thought was to do a frog but then the idea of green icing was turning me off, so alas the change of ideas. A train came to mind also since he got toy trains for his birthday, we’ll see maybe next year a train.
I like to make a hat for them also nothing professional just fun. This was my shark attempt.
The finished shark cake.
Just before he blew the candles out, he needed some help from his siblings.
William was very neat about eating his actual cake. We’d say eat the cake and he’d lean in nicely and take a bite.
After William opened his presents and started playing.
The next day he opened his presents from us and later we took the kids to Lollipop Land to play after lunch, I’d never been there before. It’s a playhouse for kids and parents sit in there and watch them having a blast. They played for a solid 3 hours no worries at all. Needless to say they were toast that night.
I can’t believe my boy is two years old!

We went ahead and got our pictures taken for 2010. It always turns out to be a stress and everyone gets upset. I don’t know why, ok maybe I do, as to the fact we have three young children, William was the worst being the youngest, non performer. Drama’s, we are always glad when it’s over and done with for another year. They did come out good, thankfully.
We’ve only framed one thus far. Thought we’d share with our family and friends.
A second one for the reason of I think we can see William a little better in this one.

As a result of the kids Friday Night Activity with their father getting canceled due to the event getting postponed for bad weather that wasn’t actually bad at all. I thought to make a plan to fill in the evening. Gran and granddad took care of William, much to his dismay. The kids and I raced down the mountain to meet Toby to go see the early movie of
Granted TJ is 4 and Gigi is 3 years old. I decided it was a good time to see how they went and thankfully the cinema wasn’t full so that was great. I went to lengths to not let the kids drink for a while prior to the movie and take them to the toilet before the movie and still yep. Gigi says half way through I need to go toilet. Toby was kind enough to take her.
Toby said after the movie. Gigi’s not going to another movie till she’s 7 years old. Her attention span is short! It always has been. TJ did much better but still not stellar. He wanted to know when the original activity was going to get underway.
It was a good movie and on par with the 2 prior. I can’t say the same for Shrek. One and two were good, three well it was too dark and wanting for my liking. So four won’t even get a look in. Anyone seen it and liked it? Can you change my mind?
We ran into a friend of mine Sharon with her kids there, to watch the movie. Her children were older actually one is the same age as Meg would have been 8 years old. She was huge. That is how we met at the prenatal class. I ran into 2 friends doing my thing this last week. I thought that never happened in the States.
It was nice to get some family time, none the less.
