My poor neglected blog...time just seems to get away from you and it's one of those things that you seem to keep putting off..
So much has been happening..birthdays..end of school...Christmas ...New Year...more birthdays...Scrapping...
Olivia has turned 10 they defiantly grow up to quick her birthday seemed to be a NEVER ENDING one we had Craig's family over on the Friday night it's the first birthday they have ever been to (up until 3 months ago we had not seen them in over 12 years) it's horrible to think that a death had to bring this family back together his step father died of CJD and his mum has terminal spine cancer...Olivia is very excited at the idea of having cousins Amy is only 1.5 years older than her
Celebrating Olivia's 10th birthday with his family

We got Olivia Wii Just Dance as part of her birthday pressie OMG so much fun I even love doing it....it provided many laughs on her birthday night especially when Craig started doing it.
I made a hude cupcake and a cupcake tree for her birthday the little cupcakes for Friday night and the HUGE cupcake for the Saturday night..we had mum and dad come over...as per usual she was very spoilt...
The following weekend we had her party at Casey Race OMG what fun that was the kids all had a great time..We had another cupcake tree this tame made by the FANTASTIC Karen and her awesome cake topper (Kut It Out) We also had Craig's work breakup on the morning of her party it was a Carnival theme so it had showbags, thrill rides etc and we had a yummy spit roast.

Me with Santa
Olivia finished Grade 4 I can't believe she is in Grade 5 next year and Riley will be starting preps my little boy will be gone even though he shits me at times and gets into lots of mischief it will be strange without him.. I was disappointed with Riley's Kinder they had NO Christmas concert and poor Olivia had her carols cancelled twice due to Melbourne's bad weather.
