Happy New Year 2016!

We had an epic dance party, complete with confetti and party hats. After our 'special' dinner we put on all of our favourite, danceable songs. Starting with Shut Up and Dance with Me. The kids were asleep by 8.30. They had a blast but have still been exhausted, both getting over 'Round 2: Coughs for… Continue reading Happy New Year 2016!

    A little over 3 weeks ago Sebastian came down with a cough. Tallula had  just gotten  over her own cough after three weeks. Then came the chest congestion for Sebastian and because of his low tone, he cannot cough out phlegm like Tallula can.  So it sort of rattles there and sounds absolutely awful… Continue reading Tis the Season
