Luke and Joy’s friend Madeleine celebrated her 3rd birthday today and she invited them to a picnic party in the gazebo with her brother Will, sister Elizabeth, Mommy, Daddy, Grandmother and Granddad. Mummy was their too. The weather wasn’t very nice but that didn’t matter. There was great food and big balloons which are always fun in gale force winds.

Today Luke and Joy spent the afternoon at Will Madeleine and Elizabeth’s house and had dinner there before everyone came back to Shipyard Park for the band concert. Luke met a new friend and they played soccer with Seth and Joy. Luke also asked the conductor to play Grand Old Flag and he said that he will next week. We’ll see.

Luke's new lunch box

After a great Holiday break, Luke headed back to Island Academy with his new John Deere lunchbox that Santa brought him. Joy spent the morning with Nanna and they went shopping.

Yesterday Will and Madeleine were over for Joy’s birthday and today we got call from their Dad that there is another sibling on the way! Stay tuned! Mummy was on the call list and she headed over to help Lisa leaving Joy and me in a bit of a bathroom muddle. Daddy cooked Crazy Bug Pasta for dinner, again.

Happy Birthday and New Year!!!

The Holiday Season ended on a high note with Joy’s second birthday today!

We all rose pretty early so Joy could open her presents. As usual, Luke was a great big brother and super helper. The hit was the nearly life-size Thomas the Tank Engine popup play tent. Nanna and Buppa gave Joy a nice doll house and they even brought Luke a couple new toy airplanes for his collection.

Joy also got a beautiful new dress from Auntie Marl and Uncle Marc and she modelled it all day. For a video, click here.

Later in the afternoon Madeleine and Will came to the party. A delicious dinner of Crazy Bug Pasta and birthday cake was enjoyed. Joy and Will had a contest to se who could eat more; I think it ended in a tie.

Here’s a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday!
