Christian's team won their soccer grand final!

What a nail biting grand final game it was yesterday when Christian's team the Lismore Thistles versed the Ballina Seahorses!  Thistles were originally down 1-0 but came back to win 3-1 :-)  They were not only grand final winners but also point score champions for the season too.

Ethan the soccer star!

Ethan's team played their last game's for the season on Saturday.  It was pouring with rain and pretty awful weather really.  

Ethan has only scored one goal this season - to which he earnt $2.00 for the goal.  So the last 2 weekends Brendan and I have promised to give him $10.00 per goal.  Well Ethan scored 1 goal and nearly got another one :-)  He bought some GI Joe "dudes" with his money.

We had presentation on Saturday afternoon.

I really like the trophies this year - they are very cute.

Ethan's 7th "army man" birthday party

Ethan wanted an "army man" party for his 7th birthday party - I made the cupcakes and made sure that we had plenty army "dudes" and ephemera around for the party.

A huge thank you to Jane at Home Made Parties for the fabulous face painting and clowning, xoxo.  Be sure to check out Jane's site here.

Here are some pics from the day:-

It was a very fun party and the kids had a great time.

Reiss has turned 1!!!!

Reiss has celebrated his 1st birthday!  He turned 1 on 17th July.  Wow the last year has just flown - he has grown so much and is nearly a toddler.

We had a birthday party for him at our house and just had our close friends and family attend.
Here are some pics of the birthday boy:-

On his birthday he had 3 teeth - but now he has 4 teeth.
He is still a breastfeed baby and really loving all food - he even had our curry the other night and loved it.

He is really trying to make new sounds and is now saying "ta" (thank you) - so cute!!!
We just adore him and are loving watching him grow up (although it all seems to be happening too quickly for me - lol)

Ethan lost his first tooth!

Ethan has had a couple of loose teeth for a while now but on Monday his bottom tooth came out (with a little help).  He was just so excited that his first tooth had come out and that the tooth fairy was going to come and give him some money.

The tooth fairy came on Monday night took his tooth and left $2.00 for him.
