Goodness ... it's been a while! Sorry about that - life has been crazy busy and updating my blog wasn't at the top of the list!
So what's been happening? Probably the thing that kept me most busy was doing a digital photo album. No I am not going to turn digital (didn't really enjoy the process at all actually). When we were in NZ I bought a 12x12 hard cover 50 page album from GrabOne thinking it would be a great idea to do for our holiday (especially in light of the fact I still haven't finished scrapping our 2009 NZ holiday haha). I had a deadline to complete it before my voucher expired (5th September) and I can tell you there were a LOT of late nights getting very frustrated trying to get it completed on time. Lets just say that the program and I had different views on how things should be placed on the page! hahaa Anyway it's done and it's arrived at my Mums today and she said it looked good (although she hasn't had a close look for any spelling errors ... I am sure there will be some as I found it hard to proof read on the screen).
What else has been going on ...
This big fella turned 7 at the end of August! He opened most of his presents the day before because Lyndon was flying out early the next morning.
I have been down at school a lot the last few weeks. I volunteered to be Class Mum for Maddison's class. Should be fun! ;-) Good job lots of the mums have volunteered to help with things throughout the year. Each week her class has a snack on Friday afternoon based on the letter of the week they have been studying. Samuel and I went the first week and it was letter C. Samuel decided the white board needed a bit more decoration while we were there!!
Yesterday we had Aaron's birthday party straight after school. He's so predicable with his cakes (3rd year in a row he's asked for a racing track cake)!! (You can see his 6th birthday cake here and his 5th birthday cake here. Side note if you check out those linked posts ... Maddison stayed in her bed this year hehehee.)
Aaron has lots of hot wheels but I knew it wouldn't be enough for 20 kids to play with and share nicely! So I asked a friend if we could borrow his for the party. We were very spoilt and amongst all the track we loaned got this awesome Dinosaur one. It was very popular! :-)
Samuel loved playing with the little soft soccer balls. Love this photo even though it's really blurry - it's a perfect picture of what he's like! :-) So much excitement and energy in such a little person!
So that's us ... I'll try not to leave it so long till the next update! I might even have something crafty to share in the next few days ... we'll see!
Thanks for visiting.
