A Wicked Halloween

We had a Halloween party in the park this afternoon. I dressed up as my favourite witch in the entire world. Do you know who I am?

I am Elphaba of course.

I hope that you had a great Halloween too.

Playing Safely

Just for something completely different today we decided to go exploring in at Docklands. There was a Community Safety Day there and we got to see so many different emergency services in action. Not only did we see police, fire and ambulance services but we also saw Customs in action and played with the puppies as well as Neighbourhood Watch and State Emergency Services.

I wonder if I could keep a Customs puppy?

There was so much to see and do there; checking out all of the different vehicles, collecting heaps and heaps of showbags and giveaways and of course there is face painting.

I loved Marty's race bike best

Milla liked the police motorbike.

As with every festival and community event the lines to wait for the face painting was forever long. Instead of wasting all our time in line for pretty face paint we decided to go for some body paint instead.

What do you think of the artwork?

Luckily we play safe and try really hard not to get hurt.

The Birthday Continues...

Do you know what the best thing is about having your birthday on a school day? It means that my big family don't get to celebrate with me. I know that sounds a bit horrible but actually it is really good - I get to talk all night long on the phone with people who love me and then when it is the weekend they all come and celebrate with me so it really means that I get to have 2 birthdays!
AND another birthday cake!

Party with Friends

In our house we have strange 'rules' about birthday parties. Now that we are at school, the rule is you can have 2 or 3 people over to do something special, maybe go to a movie or have a sleep over OR you can have 4 or 5 friends over after school for afternoon tea in the park. I have so many friends that I didn't know what to do. Eventually I decided to have afternoon tea in the park so I could invite 5 friends and then the friends who lived near me would just come over to the park anyway.

When I sat down to write my guest list and invitations I got stuck. How could I choose 5 class mates when there are only 7 other girls in my class. Eventually I convinced mum and dad that it wouldn't be fair to not invite only 2 people so ALL the girl in my class were invited to come over.

We all walked home from school together and when we got home we all put on some of my precious costumes and went to the park for afternoon tea. We all had a great time eating yummy treats, playing games, climbing trees oh and of course eating birthday cake. (I helped to make my cake - ice cream cake!)

Once all of my friends had gone home, it was time for me to go home too. Guess what was waiting for me at home? More cards and presents.

Look at the ace present from Sharn, Dave and Harry!

I love being six.

Celebrating at School

Mum came to visit me at school with a huge tray of treats for me and all my class mates to celebrate my birthday. It was great to have everyone sing Happy Birthday to me and share a snack together at the end of the school day.
Do you know what made it even more special? My Aunty Sharn came along too and Harry had his first visit to school - on my birthday!

Hooray for birthdays,
Love Princess George

The Birthday Begins

When I woke up, not only was the table set for breakfast but there were presents waiting for me. I couldn't wait until everyone was awake so I could open my card and presents.
Thanks everyone, my presents are awesome. I especially love the new Pandora Charm.
Got to run now, it is time for school,

Over Share

By now everyone knows that dad is in hospital, well this is the reason why - OUCH!
Luckily dad didn't want us to miss out on what he was doing so he had lots of people take photos of him and his injury.

Waiting for the ambulance with a bag of dim sims and peas to ice the injury!

Being wheeled into emergency from the ambulance.

Waiting for xrays.

I don't know why no one took photos of dad's elbow being popped back in to place?
Thanks for sharing dad, I hope your arm gets better soon and you come back home.

Copy Cat

When I woke up this morning, dad wasn't home. Sometimes he goes in to work early but not today, today he was in hospital!

Last night, right about the time that I was drifting off to sleep dad was playing basketball. Just before the game finished, he jumped up into the air and got pushed. He landed awkwardly and crunch, copy cat - a dislocated elbow and broken arm!

Can you believe that dad had to find something so painful to do to copy me? Surely he could have found an easier way to be like me.

Baby Sitting Billy

Tonight I was supposed to go to soccer with mum but I really didn't want to. Instead I asked Aunty Sharn if I could help her look after Billy.
Having cuddles with Billy is much better than playing soccer.

Another Big Day

Today was another big day - it was the day that I had the bandages and stitches removed from my arm. Luckily it was a pretty quick visit. The bandage was unwrapped, the padding was removed and the waterproof seal was peeled off. The ends of the stitches were peeled off and I was almost ready to go.

Now apparently there are still holes where the screws have been removed so I have to take it easy for a couple of weeks just to make sure that I don't break my arm again just yet. Other than that, my arm is as good as new it just has a beaut new scar and few extra lumps and bumps to freak people out with. I don't even need to go back to visit the orthopedic surgeon until next year!

Do you want to know what was best about my latest visit to the hospital? It was dad's turn to take me there and it is much easier to convince dad to get junk food than it is to convince mum!

Tooth Fairy Bounty

Look the Tooth Fairy has been to visit me.
She is so clever, she read my note and let me keep my tooth AND even gave me $2.

I don't know what I will do with the tooth but I am glad that I can keep it!

One of the Pack!
I have been going to Cubs for a little while now and tonight was my big night - I was invested.
This is the sign that met me at the door.

Making my promise.

Getting my woggle.

All badged and ready to go.

Hooray, now I am a real Cub,
Love AJ Pickle
Say Cheese!

Look what happened today...
I hope the tooth fairy will visit me tonight.

Soggy Bandages
I had a big bath tonight and forgot that I am supposed to be resting AND keeping my bandages dry!
Luckily I am going back to the orthopedic surgeon this week to have my bandages and stitches removed, I don't think I will be able to remember to keep my arm dry much longer. Mum had to take my bandages off to dry them out so they could dry out ready for school in the morning

Old People are Funny

Did you know that when people get old they start to do crazy things. You see, it was our neighbour's birthday yesterday so to celebrate they (the grown ups and not the kids) all went out to a huge party in the city. They all dressed up as someone else and went out together.

Dad was dressed up as some guy who plays old people music. (Angus Young from ACDC)

Mum was dressed up as Paula (as Candi, All American Goddess)

Paula was dressed up as Cher

and the birthday boy started off as the Construction Guy from some olden days band but instead of staying in that costume he got changed twice,
first as a girl from ABBA (in a strange costume mum made)

and then as a flight attendant.

I have seen heaps of photos from the party and I really wish that I could have gone along, it looks like it was heaps of fun and I love wearing dress ups too!

In the Olden Days

In the olden days, ten whole years ago, mum and dad got married. Look how young the were back then!

I hope that when we are old we can get married (to other people not each other) and live happily ever after too.

More Boys

I have to say that I was a little worried that Milla would be right and that Billy would be a girl. Luckily I was right and Billy is a boy cousin who I know will grow up and be great friends with me. I am sure he will like playing with Milla, but not as much as he likes hanging out with me!
I wonder how long I have to wait before Billy can climb trees and play footy?
