Wednesday in pictures!

I know - I just about always have pictures in my blog posts! :-) Today is no exception!
.
Very glad Grandma is here, as she has been on school duty this week since I can't go. This morning there was a book fair at Aaron's school, so he went along with some money and picked these ones to buy! :-) Grandma went along to help and watch!

He also had swimming today and I had put my name down to help ... so Grandma helped out instead! She took these photos and I was amazed!

He's getting the hang of the noodle! :-)
AND THIS ONE! Oh my ... he actually has his face in the water! I couldn't believe it. He's pretty proud of himself too :-)
Today I decided I had been sitting about long enough so sat at my scrap desk and saw a few photos sitting there that I had pulled out several weeks ago! So I decided to get on and scrap them and challenged myself to only use patterned paper - no cardstock. So I have made the tiniest dent in my patterned paper stash! hehee All LO's are for our 2009 NZ Holiday album.


Patterned papers and stuff that was sitting on my desk (e.g. branch and little flowers). :-) That last LO - Basic Grey Aged & Confused paper and Cosmo Cricket cogs. Man ... that's old stash!!!
.
Thanks for visiting.

Great photos!

You gotta love books, they are so wonderful and I'm glad my boys are still happy to receive them as gifts ... hope that continues! Aaron looks very happy with his purchases!

And he is doing well with the swimming, how neat that Grandma was able to be there and see his progress.

I'm also trying to use up my old stash ... I have some VERY old papers that I'm determined to use!
