I know the whole purpose of this project is to capture the every day ordinary moments, but the fact is, this wasn't a very ordinary weekend for us... It was full on birthday celebrations all round! On Friday we celebrated my Mum's birthday with takeaway and Krispy Kremes and family gathered together, and on Saturday, when I decided to take my photos, it was our Heidi's fourth birthday... So not an every day, ordinary kind of weekend at all!
But then I got to thinking that actually it's so important to capture the special moments too... It's probably true to say that every family celebrates birthdays a little bit differently... Traditions are established, memories are made and the little details, the ordinary moments, of these extraordinary days are often missed.
And the fact is, that whether birthday or not, early on Saturday mornings, our little brood can usually be found cosied up on the sofa with warm milk and a blanket watching a DVD... the only difference being that this time, the DVD was a fresh out of the wrapping-paper birthday present!
Of course, certain members will only stick out the television for so long before it becomes boring and other entertainment is sought... I know this photo is super grainy, but it's just our Jonas all over at the moment - such a jolly little fellow!
And then there was the party. The 'Fairy and Pixie Garden Party'! I'll be doing a full post on it over the next couple of days, but I just thought I'd record some of those precious little moments, those 'caught-on-camera' details here too... (Thanks to Alex and Emily for some of the photographs)
These two... So thrilled to be back to their 'one year apart' thing.
And this little man... Forever exploring, forever climbing and adventuring and generally being a little ray of sunshine...
A busy little weekend,
