Gingerbread Bumblebee

Today is the last day of the school term and we are having a gingerbread party. Everyone came dressed in costumes so Ethan came as a bumblebee! We had the gingerbread story and a simple character "parade". Now we are eating gingerbread men, some who have been home-baked while others are wrapped in SwissBake and Jones the Grocer bags. I must admit that this simple theme adds much fun and value to the whole day and the kids love it!

I Love You Talia

Ethan hears that we love him so much that he is ever ready to pass on the love to his sister. Today he kept on saying "I love you Talia" and hugged and held her for a long time! She enjoyed it for a while then started getting a bit frantic. In response Ethan held her tighter and patted her head gently with a soothing yet possessive, "No need to cry Talia!"

Artwork: Well & Sick

You've seen a picture of what Ethan looks like when he's sick. Now you can see what his pictures look like when he is well and sick! The difference in energy levels is startling...and funny too!

This is Ethan feeling well...

And this is Ethan feeling sick...!!
