... so I've spent the night watching a fun movie with my hubby, making big quantities of pink playdough and baking and icing 30 odd babycakes (pink again) - plus two 'muffin' sized ones for my two wee girls - they had to have ones big enough to poke candles in because they're TWO tomorrow!!!
It is SUCH a milestone.
I don't tend to blog that much about the family because, well, its the family, but let me tell you its been a very full on couple of years - for all 6 of us. It is so lovely to see these wee pets coming along and growing into lovely little ladies.
So I spent all day in the uni library knocking poor old Luca into shape and I knocked HARD - but I really didn't want to have to work tomorrow - I want to be able to relax - just sit back (ha!) and enjoy the day with the family and friends. Happily, Luca succumbed to the pummelling and I think he looks a lot better for it - here's hoping my ed agrees... altho I think he'll probably end up with another tweak or two but that's ok... because I'm done for the night, the cakes are ready to go, the pressies wrapped and the bottles of bubbles in the fridge.

Big... Fat... YAY!!!

My littlest man just turned two and it's such a magic age! Hope you all have fun with all the pink stuff... am very jealous. I love pink and am in a house full of boys :)

Congrats on the 2nd birthday - how wonderful. I reckon the 1st and 2nd birthdays are magic :)

Hope you enjoy the day and have a glass (or two) of bubbly - you deserve it :)

Cheers, Joanne

Donna - I live in a pernament state of exhaustion!!!!! But that's just normal and I know it will improve over the next year or two. I just collapse evey few months with a migraine or something... and I do try to sneak the odd powernap if the girls are asleep and son is playing happily with lego or something... alternatively I eat chocolate...
actually, I eat a LOT of chocolate!

Thanks Avi!!!! And you too Rach - it is a cute age isn't it?! Lovely to see them accomplishing small tihngs on their own - even if it is annoying (my girls love to get changed 50 times I day - don't know how I got such fashionistas but there you have it!)
I did have some bubbles Joanne - thank you - and it WAS magic :)
