The Blue Devils

Maddy played his best game ever yesterday, picking up 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 intercepts (according to Daddy's statistics LOL). We also gave him credit for shooting more (at least 5 attempts) as he rarely does and passes off to his team mates. I managed to capture a few pictures but kept forgetting to film him in action as I was too busy cheering him and his team on.

Shooting practice

Half time break

Time out

In action

ready to pass it off

More Snow

After his 9am bball game - not afraid of the cold or snow lol

Poor Red Dragon lol

We decided to go for pancakes at IHOP.
It looked like others had the same idea because the car park was packed

Traffic on our way home

Maddy's New Glasses

We noticed over the past few months, Maddy has been squinting while watching TV and playing games on his computer. We took him to see an Optometrist and she found that he had difficulty seeing small things far away. After trying most of the children's glasses on, we settled with this one. Doesn't he look cute?!? hehe

Looking very smart (and grown up) with his new specs

Like father, like son :)

Happy 2010

Happy New Year folks.

Since the last update, the schools were closed early for winter break due to a snow storm. Maddy and his daddy had fun playing in the snow and I still had to work - crazy!!!

Had a lovely Christmas lunch at Vai & Fati's place, and met up with Ben & Audrey Pereira and their children, who recently moved from Samoa. The kids enjoyed playing Monopoly and running around in the snow.

Thanks for the pressies we received. We are very late in sending ours this year. I worked really crazy shifts during the Christmas period and still recovering from it. Should have them sent out this week. (Sachi if you can send me your new addy, would be much appreciated)

We received yummy goodies, books & card games from Nana, Papa, Aunty Lagi & Uncle Tolly, Grandma & Grandpa, Fatilua Family & Pereira Family and a few neighbors. My younger brother and his family also sent us all All-Black jerseys WOOHOO. Maddy received an AT-AT motorized lego set which he has yet to complete, a Star Wars PS2 game & a dinosaur board game from us. I was lucky to find them a few days before Christmas. Hopefully I'm better organised next year.

We welcomed the New Year with a video night and then celebrated Daddy's birthday with a yummy carrot cake that Maddy decorated. He then took his Daddy to the movies the next morning to see Avatar along with Fati & the girls. Birthday dinner was spent at the Palombo residence - a yummy roast with salad and vegetables and red wine to compliment lol.

Today the boys are back at work and school. I'm on the graveyard shift this week supervising audits and inventory - oh what fun lol.

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas & New Years celebration. Missing you all xox
