Christmas is nearly here

I thought this was going to be a great photo of the kids with the xmas tree. I take this every year and it is amazing how fast they grow each year.I guess I better take another photo because I didn't notice Brandon staring at the reindeers he is totally obsessed with them this year.I will definitely be moving them before I take the next photo.If the poor reindeer even survive he loves them and won't leave them alone.The tree is decorated the lights are up next to start the xmas baking.Then I better get a bit of shopping done I think the kids would be upset if they didn't have any pressies under the tree.

Easter Layout

I love these photos of Brandon easter morning. He looks kind of guilty in the first one and I absolutely love the one down the bottom where he is smelling his easter egg.These papers were so cute for a little boys easter layout. I used some cute little Jolees sticker chocolate bunnies and on the bottom flowers are some little choc jolees easter eggs and choccies.

Birdhouse OTP

My children gave me these gorgeous little birdhouses for my birthday and I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with them so I put them away. I recently did a family canvas for Memories that last ( I will share the canvas when I get it back)so I decided to do my little birdhouses to match and then I will use them in my family room together on the cupboard.They are going to look so cute up there.I have a few more OTP's that I am determined to finish this week for presents before I am allowing myself to go and buy a few that I have fallen in love with that I would love to get done for Christmas it is only about a week before we have to start decorating the house and putting the lights up.It has come around so quickly this year and I still have a birthday party and invitations to get done this week.

1 more day to go

Thanks for the lovely comments girls. Only one more night and day till Chloe is home. I bet I will be the first parent waiting there to pick them up.I have been so stressed worrying about her I haven't even scrapped this week. I wonder if she is missing us as much or if she has been having too much fun with her friends and teachers.

Wednesday, March 11


My gorgeous daughter Chloe has gone off to camp for 3 days.I already miss her and can't wait for her to get home.I'm wondering if I will get a phone call during the night to come and get her I'm hoping she is happy and settled there with her friends.

Happy Birthday James

I can't believe you are 17 already.It only seems like yesterday you were a tiny premmie baby and now you are bigger than me.It also felt like only yesterday you started school and you finish school this year time has just flown. I better go finish getting things ready for his party they should be arriving in about 30 mins so I better get a move on. I'll try and post his birthday pics tonight if the party doesn't go too late.
