Eight is Great!!!!!

Today is Ryan's eighth birthday.......he has been counting down the days for weeks and weeks and last night he started counting down the hours. Up at 5.30 am wondering around the house looking to see if anyone had left any presents out for him.......I had them hidden so he had to wait until 6 am when I sprung up out of bed refreshed and ready for a new day.......NOT!!!!! He was very pleased with all the goodies he got and I think he was hinting at a day off school so he could stay home and play with everything.

Megan was chucking a big hissy fit because there weren't any presents for her...... she was so cranky about it at one stage I had to send her out of the room to go and settle down.

Here is a cute pic of my big boy with his new Roosters hat........ I don't think he was really allowed but he wore it to school and when he came home it was still on his head.

For those of you who don't know this is a WWE Champion Spinner Belt cake......... I made it myself it only took 5 hours in total........ I am so glad I don't have to do anymore cakes for another year because I am so slow at this kind of thing....... all the kids thought it was pretty cool and ate it all up..... I told their teacher that I put extra food colouring in just to give the kids a real sugar high for the rest of the day!!!! Ha ha too funny.

Out of all his presents from Mum and Dad I think this one was a big hit...... it's a WWE Hell in a Cell Cage........ he got a few of the wrestlers as well to go with it. I now have a Hell in a Cell Cage as a centre piece on my dinning table...... should give us some interesting table talk tonight at dinner I'm thinking.
That's about it for today I am off to go and cook the birthday boy his favourite dinner....... spaghetti meat balls smothered in bocconcini.......mmmmmm my mouth is watering already.

Oh before I forget, I received an email from a very nice lady last night saying that she couldn't leave a comment on my blog because it only allowed Google users........the problem is now fixed and anyone and everyone can now leave a comment....... so go on give it a go!!

Talk soon

I have been wondering why I haven't been able to get on to the scrapparoony blog. I told Barb yesterday that I should send an e-mail, but now I have read your blog my question is answered. Barb and I both love your packs and looked forward to the next one. But we understand how busy you are as we are always to busy as well. Having children that play sport, musical instruments, go to tutoring, and work part time keeps to hopping. We will miss our pizza boxes, but hopefully one day we will receive them from you again.
