BIG Blog and lots of Photo's!!!

This afternoon I taught myself how to download photo's from our camera on to the new laptop.
I should not be surprised but there were 250 photo's since January.
They cover all of the special experiences we have been so fortunate to have.
Some big, some small.

Tonight I feel it is only fair to talk and show the events of this weekend only.
It was very exciting and special.
Over the coming days I will show the last 5 months.

So many people are assisting us in creating the most amazing life for Amelia.
I also appreciate everyone also thinking of Tom.
He is on this emotional rollercoaster as well.

Yesterday we went to the "party planner's" house.
Her name is Anna Ellam and she has taken it upon herself to decorate our house for Amelia's 8th Birthday Party on the 4th June.
Anna is very pregnant with her third child and has been a power of strength to me in the last few months.
As have many people..........
Anyway, lots of paint, glitter and glue later we headed to Bentleigh East........

Someone I had met on "Amelia's Project" asked us to go and see their shop, Aquariums Plus.
Amelia has been asking for a fish tank for 12 months and Scott and I have always wanted one. Tom......well he gets excited about anything!
Dale Mundy was fantastic.
Choosing a fish tank and the fish can be very confusing but Dale was a great help.
Dale arrived after work with our 97cm tank, 8 fish from the goldfish family (a fantastic assortment of sizes and colours) and all the accessories we could possibly need.

Who would ever think it would be so exciting to have a fish tank???!!!!
I still need Dale to write the names of the types of fish for me and then I need the kids to tell me what they have named them again. I have heard Love fish (Amelia) Batman (Tom) and Herman (Scott) but am very confused !

After Dale left the kids set their seats up in front of it.
Serious discussions were had and the observation intense.
Then we chose to wake up at 6:30am Sunday morning (definately not my choice!) and eat our breakfast in front of our new family members.

And of course lunch too !!!!!!

Thank you so much Michelle and Dale Mundy for helping us create another wish off the


Today Vicki Adams and The Langwarrin CFA asked us to come down to the fire station for a morning tea and "presentation".
When we arrived there was approximately 25 people waiting for us.
After becoming aware of our situation from Vicki and the Anaconda sausage sizzle, they asked us to come so that they could open their arms to us.
How beautiful is that ??????????
They wanted to present Amelia and Tom with very rare "trauma teddies" and "junior firefighter certificates".

And ........

Then we were told we are welcome anytime for any reason and the kids experienced all the vehicles.

Such kind and caring people that went to so much effort.
We ALL had an awesome time.

But at the end of it all (1pm) Amelia was exhausted, so she had an afternoon of DVD's while Tom (and sausage!) played Junior Firefighters!!!

Thank you for helping create memories to remember forever xxx
