A very happy birthday girl

The smile says it all - little Z has had a lovely day and is now hopefully dreaming about chocolate hedgehog cake, stamper ink sets and a microphone with really irritating tunes on!!!!

Disney Princess

The Snow White outfit went down a treat!

Favourite birthday present???

Little Z was most impressed by the karaoke microphone that AATO bought her for her birthday. Not sure Mummy and Daddy share her enthusiasm guys!!! Could be up there on a par with 'I want candy' (which I would like to point out was going round and round my head in work this morning!!!)

Happy birthday to you .....

Some big moment nerves when it comes to being centre stage!!!

Little Z is 4 today!!!!

Our little baby is 4 years old today. Mummy decided to make the birthday cake from scratch herself (amidst panic that nowhere had caster sugar and the cocoa powder ran out at the 11th hour!!). The end result was quite impressive even though I do say so myself!!

Bye bye family

Sadly, Thursday came all too soon and we had to say goodbye to AATO amid lots of hugs and tears and may promises that we won't leave it another year until we get together again. We miss you guys. xxxxx

Trust me I'm a doctor

Would you let this man diagnose your ailments????????

Family bonding time

The children ( and the not so little children!) indulged in some gingerbread people decorating.

I'm forever blowing bubbles ....

Aaah - so cute xx.

Fun outside in the sun

Hey Daddy, I want me one of these please!!! Little O thoroughly enjoyed playing on the Tweenies scooter.

Wacky races

Mmmm - Dr and Mrs C decided to have some fun on the Didi cars and both being of a competitive nature it turned into a race. The ending is just classic - watch and enjoy!!

Like father like son

Brother and nephew having a cuddle. See - it is sunny in the Isle of Man sometimes!!!!

Mother and daughter bonding

Sister-in-law and niece decided to spend some quality time together and opted to ....... play on the Didi cars!!!! See later postings for some amusing video footage.

Much fun had in IOM

Lots of hilarity and a wonder that there wasn't a noise abatement order served at the property on one occasion when the adults took to the Singstar game on the Playstation.

Due to threatened litigation from several interested parties, the evidence will not be published on this blog. Suffice to say that it has been stored for future use!!!

Apart from that it is just too damn embarrassing to publish anywhere that the public might see it!!!!!!

Mwaah darling

Little O puckers up!

Farmhill rocks!!

The day dawned at last for AJ - he got to bring his trumpet home from school!! Mum and Dad are off to Boots to invest in some ear plugs for a while!!!!

I am the music man - I come from far away .....

Mmmm - I do hope that Dr C is as adept with the surgical instruments he uses!!!!

AATO arrive from the UK

After a tense wait for confirmation that the family had actually made it to the boat, the IOM clan were really excited to see cousins/brother/sister-in-law. What was the first thing they did? Put fluffy pink ears on baby O - who didn't mind in the slightest as he had much more interesting things to do such as emptying out Auntie Y's cupboards!!!!

Raaaah said the dinosaur!!!

Mini mode

Little Z thought Mummy's new expensive boots were great fun to wear!

Enough now

No more photos please - I have said cheese enough now!!

School photo time

School photo day - 9th October. AJ off school sick and Z not at all happy. End result? Truly awful school photos which we are certainly not ordering. We decided to do our own 'portrait' sittings at home and the results are a million times better!!!

Updating blog.

it has been a while since I have updated the blog for one reason or another. Am now back in the swing of things - enjoy!!
