Norfolk Island Magic

Here are a some colours and textures of Norfolk to enjoy.

I have always said that Norfolk was mostly green and red in colours, because of the plants and red volcanic soil, but there are so many shades, hues and tones in the spectrum for you to see.

Isn't this a magic place.

as happy as PIGS in MUD!

I love the saying, that someone is happy as a pig in mud. I know two little people who the saying most belongs to!
Another beautiful day here on Norfolk Island. I took my friend Carolyn over to Devon House to meet Auntie Mary and Uncle Bernie.
BUT, my children rarely avoid catastrophe or water or mud on any outing, this one was no different when Teddy discovered a hose right near the pig pen, where my cousin's Charles and John keep their pigs.
We had a good giggle when we first saw them frolicking in the mud, but instructed them to use NO more water, but left them to jump around happily, knowing they now needed a bath anyway, as we then went to Kim and Charles' house (behind Devon house) to visit.
I have since learned that while we were gone, they turned the water back on, but couldn't turn off the tap, so they went to Charles' hardware to ask Raewyne who works there, for help.
When we returned to find Teddy and Sienna missing from around the pig pen, but a bigger muddy puddle in its place, I looked in horror for them through the house, somewhat relieved that they weren't there.
This is where we eventually found them, playing in the massive sawdust pile from the extractor fans at John's joinery.
They were having a ball, and definitely deserved their bath after all that fun.

Happy birthday Miss two!

Happy 2nd Birthday Sienna Rose!

I thought that I would share some photos of my big grown up girl...

I had my own reminisce of her newborn photos on Father's day as she was born on Father's day 2 years ago.
I really didn't get any "cute" photos of her until she was 3 months old, at the time, an avid photographer like me was devastated, but now, I only remember from revisiting the boggly eyed newborn ones(I can only giggle at them now,2 years on).

Sienna at 3 months old, finally some cute photos!

PARTY TIME The only party game that I organized this time(unusual for me, I know) was icing your own biscuit, Sienna loved the creative side so much, she decorated them all afternoon. Lots of fun & Yummy too!
Thankyou everyone for your kindness and best wishes for her birthday.
I know that the terrible twos have begun, but she is still our beautiful and precious little girl( and very cheeky!).
This is a fantastic journey the kids are taking us on, I wouldn't miss a moment for the world!
