Happy New Year, hope your 2010 is filled with all the things you could dream of.


Over the xmas break we headed to Goondiwindi to see Great Grandma who is 92 and still going strong. This is the first time that she has seen Jordyn and she was delighted to see us all. we had a photo or two taken with MIL camera as I forgot mine in the rush to leave. Will post a pic when I get one. Will we were there we went to see the new chipmunk movie, not bad some good funny bits.
Hope everyones Xmas was good and that Santa was nice to you. The girls were spoilt rotten as per usual, I recieved a new laptop from hubby and the girls, MIL got me a beautiful Venesian glass necklace all the way from Vienna when she was there earlier in the year as well as a new toweling robe and a dinner set (spoilt). My Brother and his wife gave us a HD set top box for our bedroom TV and a slushy machine (yum!!). Phil recieved a authentic swiss army knife that his Mum got him in Switzerland (spelling sorry). It took us 2 days to put all the toys together and clean up all the boxes etc. Glad its over for another year.

2 days to go, hope your all ready for Christmas. Phil and Tayla are going grocery shopping tomorrow (goodluck) to pick up a couple of things we need to take with us. We will do the Santa thing at home on Christmas morning then off to Phils sisters place to do the inlaw thing then at lunch time we will head over to my Mum and Dads to do the family thing, it will be a busy day but.... being with family is what Christmas is all about.
On Boxing Day I am hitting the sale with Phils Mum and sister, not that I have any money but there is always the credit card!!!!

Well I think I am all done on the christmas present front. Did the last dash today so I think thats it... Now the wrapping begins. This is the first year that I am not looking forward to the wrapping of presents, not sure why but I have been putting it off for a while now but best get my act together as I only have 10 days to go. Might have to have a go tonite after Miss T and Miss J go to bed. Wish me luck.

Tayla had her Kindy Christmas Party today so we made all the kids Magic Reindeer Food although I think most of the teachers stole (which is cool), also we made these clipboards for her room leader, assistant and the childcare Director.

Tayla had her end of year dance concerts on the weekend and she went beautifully. She remembered most of her steps and stayed on her feet the whole time. Phil presented her with a bunch of roses after the last concert and she was a little chuffed but very very tired. Had some professional photos taken on the night so will post them once I have got them.

On Sunday we decorated the Christmas tree and the house, Tayla decorated most of the tree by herself and would not let anyone else touch it. Jordyn loved the train... well probably more the box it came in but..... All in all it was a fun afternoon and it looks great.


Well my baby has gone and been replaced by a toddler..... ( I am sad) On monday the 23rd of Nov Jordyn started crawling and a week later she was pulling herself up on the couch and table and gotten another tooth. She has a couple of bruises already from crashing onto the timber floor but she will survive.

My big girl is going to school soon, I remember bringing her home from hospital like it was this morning.
I went and got Tayla's uniforms for Prep the other day , she was so excited that when she tried on her dress uniform she did not want to take it off and ended up going to bed in it. For the life of me I could not get it off her.


FunkyChics has a new clear stamp out called Paradimes the set I have used is called FunkyFlies, you can use them in 11 different ways, very cool. They were designed by a mate of mine Tanya Rees, here is a LO I did with them last night.
They are available from or your LSS.


Last weekend I shot the wedding of Kym & Sean at the Shorncliff peir got some great shots was very windy and very hot. here are a few of my favs

Didn' t get much done today as I had a mate from Mackay drop in to see me and have a catch up. All I did was drink coffee and unpack one bag from the weekend away.... very boring.
Will get to finish the things I started at the weekend probably next thursday I hope.
Big Congrats to my mate Deb Lawrence who has recently had some LOs published. Good on you mate you deserve it.
Also a big congrats to another mate of mine Bec who is expecting a little boy in April, so good that you will have a pigeon pair.

Well I think our friends only weekend away was a huge success, thanks to all you guys who helped get it organized. Its so good when a group of freinds can get together and have a good time. Special thanks to Alia, Tam, Lesa and Mum for helping me out with Jordyn and letting me have some time to scrap. I had a great time and so did Little Miss Socialite, I thinks she was a little bit spoilt by everyone. She was so exuasted from the weekend that she slept for a few hours today.

Well tomorrow is the day that Jordy and I set of to our weekend away, have been running around today and tonite getting ready (still not done). Hopefully everyone will have a good time....

Phil has finally landed a job on the airport link as a supervisor YAYY!! he is off to sign a contract tomorrow and will start monday. The airport link is a 3 year long construction so hopefully he will have 3 years work (that would be nice) he just has to go in there and show them what he is made of and I think he will be fine.

Busy weekend... had one of my best mates over on Sat to give the family haircuts including Mum and Julie, Sunday spent infront of the TV. Monday did a big clean up to fill a skip, then Tuesday off to the airport to pick up Phils Mum from overseas and his sister from Canberra, had a little chat with them before they set off to Toowoomba.

Got some scrapping done since Thursday. Just a couple of Layouts

Got Jordys ears pierced today. She looks so cute with tiny pretty red bling studs. She was alittle upset but not for long, a quick feed settled her down. Phil thinks I am a mean mother for doing it but better now so she cannot play with them and I can look after them properly. He keeps giving me heaps about it trying to make me feel bad, but she will never remember it. will post a pic soon.

Phil would go back to work.... He has completely pulled apart downstairs, there is stuff everywhere. Luckily there is a skip turning up in the morning to take some of the junk away, but did he have to do it when I am expecting guests?????? At least he is not parked infront of the XBox I suppose. He exhuasted Tayla so much she fell asleep with a peice of bacon in her hand from dinner.

Mum and Dad have bought a new car, a new diesel holden cruize in black. Vey nice, will hopefully get to see and drive it on saturday when they bring my car back.

YAYYYY!!!!! I know that sounds terrible but I do love the days that Tayla goes to kindy, I find myself in a much more relaxed state of mind. Today Lesa and I will be off to visit Anita and then to visit Nikki and home, not sure what Phil is going to amuse himself with now that he is an unemployed bum. He had a meeting yesterday with a guy from the airport link so hopefully that will come off and he (and the rest of the guys) will be back to work within the fortnight.

How do you like my banner, not completely happy with it. Unfortunately Photoshop gave me a hard time tonight.

Friday, October 23, 2009


Left home at 9am this morning to have quick visit with Nikki to pick up my Tiara for our weekend away, then off to drop Jordy with Aunty Tam as I went to drop paperwork at kindilan, then back to Tams for a quick bite to eat, then off to visit Nancy whom I haven't seen for some time. A big thanks to Nancy for all the toys etc for Tayla. Then home to pic up Tayla from daycare, then bathe, feed and eat, do some emailing etc and here I am. phew!!!!
Phil is now home for a while as he is out of work as of today, he is planning a couple of weeks rest until he finds something else. Fingers crossed it is only a couple of weeks. He will soooo interupt my routine.
Tomorrow is another big day, have ballet in the morning then over to Mums to drop the girls off then I go to redcliffe to a wedding rehersal as I am the photographer, back to pick up the girls and home for the arrival of the Smith Family.

Thursdays scrap day, didn't do much really, just tried to get some of my stash ready for the weekend away. Then decided what I might do there, maybe the regular xmas presents...... calenders and keyrings for the Grandies, 6x6 album for the Great Grandy and a clock for my scraproom. And if all this goes to plan maybe a couple of LOs (all depending on Jordy).

Did finish a LO that I started a week ago though.


just love this photo...... looking a bit grubby but cute all the same

Australia Zoo

A couple of weeks ago we visited Australia Zoo took Imogen with us to keep Tayla company thought I might share a couple of pics...
