Oldest Boy Turned 16

Our Oldest Woody Boy Turned 16!!!

Yesterday our oldest Woody Boy had his birthday…gosh time fly’s by far too much. Tomorrow is his party. I am amazed with how quick time has gone by….I can remember holding him as a baby and now he is old enough to get his car licence !!!

We are being double brave this year. We had a party for our youngest last weekend and now we are having one for our oldest 🙂

With Woody Oldest boy party I wanted to keep it small, because it is a sleep over party. So only a few invitations were handed out. With big instructions…”Non Alcohol Party/Non Drug Party”……If any of the kids are caught with alcohol or drugs then I will be calling up the parents and they can come to get their children. I am such a “Mean Mummy”…… 🙂

How many parties have you been brave enough to have?  What were your parties like? Be great to hear your experiences !!

Nicholas Birthday Falls On New Year Eve

Nicholas Birthday Falls On New Year Eve!!

Nicholas Wood turns 11 today at 6.01pm 🙂 How about that?

Eleven years ago I was in hospital giving birth to our third Woody boy – giving birth way over due. He was given two dates for when he was meant to have his birthday…..December 11 or December 17th. Both dates came and went and I was still pregnant!!!

In the end I had to be induced because he was far too comfortable curled up inside. So it was decided that if he did not make an appearance before the weekend was over then Dec 31st was to be the day he was helped along.

Gosh it did not even occur to me about the date being New Year Eve!!! Looking back I wished I had asked for one more day. Only due to the fact that he never gets to have a birthday party because all his friends are either away, busy or not able to make his birthday 😦

Won’t he be happy when he is older enough to celebrate in style?…..I think it will end up being the biggest 21st Birthday Bash ever in history to make up for all the years that he didn’t celebrate with friends.

I am thinking about holding a birthday party half way through the year in 2010 so that for once he can have fun. Has anyone else had to do that for their child’s birthday? You hear how many children are born near or on Christmas and miss out on gifts. With the excuse “Oh its so so close to Christmas so you are having a big present” Well I can say we have never done that before. We always make sure he gets a present on his birthday – even if it is a small gift.

Happy New Year Eve!!

So for all of our friends and family across the world. Happy New Year and have a safe fun filled time. Please be careful on the roads – slow down and take care. Stay Alive, you are important to your family and loved ones.

Happy Birthday Nicholas…..Happy New Year Family and Friends
