We had Ella’s birthday party at home yesterday and she had a great time. Fairy Twinkletoes was fantastic and she had all of the kids from the word go (although the boys were not so impressed!!) and thoroughly entertained all 16 of them! You can see the delight on their faces.
Little Ella turned 4 on Wednesday and what a day it turned out to be! To cut a long story short Ella spent most of the day in the Children’s hospital after being rushed there in an ambulance after losing consciousness. What she experienced was a febrile convulsion caused by a rapid rise in temperature due to a sickness bug that is going around (all 4 of them had it at the same time). She gave us a real fright. Here are some pics opening some presents in the morning we had no idea of what was to come and then enjoying a cupcake around 9 p.m. when she woke having slept most of the day. Also in the photos you can see Ruby asleep, she slept through all the drama of the ambulance arriving and in the one of Ella blowing out the candles it was only when I saw the picture that I realised we nearly set her hair alight…..as if she hadn’t been through enough!!
….Yes, the reality of car travel with 4 little ones is a full-on people mover complete with sliding doors!! Two toddlers in the back and two babies in the middle:
We went to William’s birthday party at the St Kilda Adventure Playground this morning and everyone had a great time! Alan met us there after a run hence his sporting attire! It all got too much for Charlie on the bike ride home and he fell asleep on Alan’s shoulders (he had been up since 5 this morning).
This week Ella went to her first ballet class with her little friends Eve & Matisse. They loved it!
These are pictures from one a playdate at Eve & Ewan’s house a few weeks ago.
Amanda came over with Olivia & Sophie this afternoon for a long overdue catchup and playdate. The kids had great fun dressing up!
