On the countdown!

My favourite photo of Taylah this last few months and a pic of her and her little friend at her birthday party last week! It was very hard getting a decent pic of the two of them at the same time!
2 more sleeps until we start our holiays!!! Yay, we are leaving early Sat. morning to drive to Port to visit friends and then we fly out of Cairns on Tuesday heading for the Gold Coast and theme park heaven! We are so excited, our first family holiday in 4 1/2 years! (Can't count Adelaide, that's never a holiday!!!) So my days are filled with washing clothes, packing and writing lists and phone calls and shopping for last minute requirements!!!
My little man received his first scrapbooking prize yesterday for winning the kids challenge at the LSBS cybercrop in April! He was so excited!!!

Up late

I was getting so good and back into a routine of getting to bed at a reasonable hour. But here I am again, slowly falling back into the late night routine. But hey, have just enjoyed the longest quiet time in one night in ages. Hubby was out till 10pm for a much needed drink with the boys, I got the kids in bed extra early and settled in on the couch to catch up on 6 episodes of neighbours! (Yes, sorry to say I am still a fan after all these years.) It was peaceful! Then Hubby came home a little chatty after a few beers and he had had a great night and wanted to tell me all about it, now I am wide awake and wondering how tired I'm going to feel tomorrow!
Have just visited another blog and been truly inspired by my blogging friend Liss, (A Memory forever!) She is very inspirational!
And wanted to share a gorgeous pic of my little man I took yesterday! I don't often get him unawares to get the good shots, but this one was a pearler! (Image taken with my 28-135mm IS Canon lens!)(A great multi-purpose lens which I love!)

Easter pics and layout

Firstly would like to credit the lovely digi kit I used for my new header to: CHOUBI who' gorgeous designs can be found at CLD
This kit is called BUBBLE POP.

Well here are my few pics from yesterday after the Easter Bunny arrived! This was only a small portion of what the kids got and my giant egg. They each collected 24 more eggs in Dad's treasure hunt which we decided to do inside this year, living in the tropics is not a great spot for outdoor treasure hunts. They had so much chocolate, now there is no room in the fridge and today no-one would leave me alone until I smashed my giant egg. It didn't actually smash, as it was left out of the fridge all night, I dropped it on the floor and it just squashed and the bottom became flat.
Quite funny!
Went to the museum today and had a walk on the beach looking for empty hermit crab shells for our lonely little CHERMIE. His little mate, BELLA, died a few weeks ago and Taylah was devastated, so have to make sure this one has plenty of new shells to choose from. Well I'm off to do some scrapping or photo archiving, bye!

Happy Easter

Hope the easter bunny was good to everyone, we have enough chocolate in this house to last us at least a couple of months. The Easter Bunny was very generous this year and even I scored a giant egg, I've secretly always wanted one of those! The kids had to wait until I woke up to start the treasure hunt and by that time, Taylah was already onto many of the eggs hidden not so well by Dad! Jack had already eaten the ears off of is bg bunny by the time I got up at around 7.15am...
A lazy day today, yesterday we hit the shops to buy a new tv as the old one just blew up during NEIGHBOURS the other night! We have to have a spare to keep the sanity of parents at crucial times, and we got a bargain along with thousands of other punters out spending Mr. Rudd's money yesterday. I've never seen anythng like it before, it was chaos at the shops and Jack is not a fan of shopping, he had another tanty, which was just lovely for us all.
Tomorrow we may hit the museum, Taylah loves it and locals getin for free, which is handy seeing as we broke the bank yesterday!Looking forward to the school holiday week for a break from routine, will upload some easter pics when my camra battery is charged!

More pressies!!!

Just received a gorgeous parcel in the post from Tracy at LSBS, albums to start on, I love them, right into the acrylic ones right now! Trouble is, I have loads of ideas and so little time. BUT!!!! Have just booked DS into day care for next term, for one day a week so will have a tiny bit more time for me. Haven't got my Wedding Photography up and running here in Townsville, I'm sure I will pick up work no problem, but right now, just trying to adapt to a new home and get the kids sorted etc. Enjoying a break from the Weddings and would love to concentrate a little more on my creative side of Photography again. There are some beautiful sunsets here over the lake where we live and I have to get out and capture them. We've also got loads of resident Magpie Geese who have all nested recently and every so often you see their little families with new offspring wandering through the neigbourhood.
Still right into scrapping, it's wonderful havingmy own creative space no and th mojo seems to go into overdrive when you know where everything is!!!!!!!
Hubby just arrived home early from work for the easter break, it wil be nice to have a little time off alltogether. Looking forward to these school holidys and a break from all the runnning around!!!!! Happy Easter everyone!!!!! :) For now here's a few pics of my little man doing some easter egg painting!
