Green with Envy!

Alan has finished painting Xander's walls - in the colour Xander chose of course!

It is so awesome! So bright, but it also feels rather warm, especially with the afternoon sun streaming in. Xander is so excited, as tomorrow we will put everything back into his room. (I wonder if Alan has worked out that both Xander and I would like some shelves??!)

Now, we just need to colour the rest of the house...

Soccer Star. Again!

Well, last year Xander got named Player of the Year from his soccer team, and this year...

He was nominated and chosen as the Most Improved Player!
Yay, Go Xander!! Two trophies for his shelf (once he's back in his newly renovated room that is!)

Esmee's 4!

Our little Princess really was a princess for her birthday - complete with a new dress and a hair-cut followed by a style - the only time she'll have curls!
They lasted all of about 30 minutes but she looked lovely.

Totally spoilt, as she deserves to be, she partied away with her friends at her Ball.

Pizza, games, lollies, presents...what more would a little princess need?

A cake!

Happy Birthday our beautiful girl!

Cross Country

Xander had about 3 weeks of cross country at school recently. Then on the final day, they had a race!

Around the field, over some hay bales, under a rainbow parachute, around some classrooms and around again.

warming up
they're off! (Xander is to the left)
Second time around

Finish line just ahead!

Xander came about 9th or 10th, i wasn't counting. He did really well!
