Last night he couldn't sleep as he was so excited. At 11.30 pm I had enough of him getting up and saying he couldn't sleep, so I told him to get into my bed. That didn't help and he was still awake at 12.30 am! He was so excited to open up his presents this morning. One of his favourite presents was a canvas that I got made for him with a photo of him running through the banner with Hawthorn.
We went to church in Devonport because it was our church's conference today and afterwards we went to my brother Eden and Steph's house for lunch.
It was nice that Harri could spend time with his cousins on his birthday.
Kobe loves wrestling with Uncle Jared.
Thanks so much again to the lovely Cupcake Fairy, Nicole who made Harri's birthday cake for us.
It was nice to see my Dad on Father's Day. He was cracking Jalen up as he was telling him stories about his first girlfriend he had when he was fourteen.
for the last month or so, when I started seeing Father's Day books and gift ideas in the shops. One day it just hit me when I was looking for some books for school and saw and end with lots of Father's Day books on it. I considered buying a couple of books for the boys, but I knew that it would probably make them sadder so I ended up leaving them.
Jay had forgotten that it was Father's Day this morning until I joked that Noah had better have made Aaron breakfast in bed this morning. Harri decided that Aaron wouldn't have a bed, but would sleep on a cloud :) Jay was then quite quiet and teary all day as he realised that we were going through another Father's Day without Aaron. It's hard to believe that our last Father's Day with Aaron on earth was just five weeks before Noah passed away. I knew he wasn't well but had no idea that we had such a short time left on earth with him. He didn't look very well at all that day. I still love this photo with all five of my boys in it.
I'm glad that Kobe still considers Father's Day to be a 'good thing' because I feel so sad to know that the boys don't have their Dad with them. In a strange way it's comforting to know that Noah and Aaron are together. I just wish they were still here with us.
