Mid-Week Madness

The Boys are keeping me Busy...

Well, I can't believe how quickly a week can fly by. It's Wednesday already and Mum and Dad will be home in 2 Days.. Yippee. They are absolutely loving Paris and have seen many of the amazing sights it has to offer. Dad was a bit overwhelmed and turned into a big sook, when standing near the Arc de triumph ( I know it's not how you spell it, but hey - I'm not French..)

Sam is very trying at the moment and is definitely testing my patience. He can tell you exactly what he wants and doesn't want. He thinks that if he shouts out "NO - Thank you"... that it makes it not so bad...quite funny really.

Went to try and get his Hair-cut at Karrinyup yesterday, as you can see from the photos he didn't, because he wouldn't sit in the chair, even with a chocolate bribe, and threw himself on the floor until i convinced him that he wasn't going to have it cut.. quite embarrassing, but hey I'm sure this is going to be one of many shop tantrums...

Had a great day today. Took some gorgeous photos of Nic this morning.. Can't wait to scrapbook them.

Ooooh he is just too cute!!

Clarie and Eamon are off on their American holiday ( I'm soooo jealous,) on Saturday so she came over for lunch and spend some time with the boys before she goes. Sam, Claire and I played puzzles, which entailed Sam tipping them out and Claire and i putting them back together, as Sam walked away..

Nic gave Claire some gorgeous cuddles and smiles before she left!

Sam had a great time with Claire as well, He does love his "aunty Claire"

Every time i am talking on the phone recently he wants to talk to them as well, however all he does is listen, and i have to do a lot of prompting..

He spoke to Ashleigh on the phone today and I tried to tell her what he did today.. so I thought it would be easier to show Sarah and Ashleigh on the computer. He misses you both a lot and talks about you all the time. He can't wait to see you soon... This is what he did today,

He played in the sand pit -

Played with his truck -

Played on the slide -

So as you can see he is very busy at the moment.. and do you want to know what his new trick is???

Climbing on the top bunk... the only problem is that he can't get down.. ( My nightmare has begun.. whose crazy idea was it to get bunks???? Ha Ha Ha Ha ... MINE Arrgghhh )

Well I've gotta go, try and get some sleep before I'm up again with Nic... Catch ya round like a fruit loop!!

Busy .. Busy .. Busy ..

What a Weekend!

Well it's been pretty full on here, had a really busy weekend. It started with a visit to the Craft and quilt fair on Friday. Sam, Nic, Lizzy sparkes and I went on Friday. Lizzy bought a couple of material samples and I bought a few stamps for my scrap booking. Sam was really good, i just kept feeding him food and bribing him with a new book and car.. worked a treat!!!
Friday night we went to Scott and Kate's for dinner. Kate and Brendan are off to London on Wednesday, so it was great to catch up with them before they go. The boys were so cute playing all together.

Sam loved the cat's scratching pole as you can see..

Saturday, i felt like i was coming down with the cold that the boys have got, but it didn't eventuate, thank god.. Saturday night we just watched the footy.

On Sunday Adam had golf for the day. So the boys and I stayed home in the morning and Matt and Renee came over for lunch, where we had a sausage sizzle and the boys loved having them here to play with and have a few cuddles.
In the arvo we went for a drive to Grandma's for a cuppa. Sam was able to play outside for a little while , as it wasn't raining.

And that was the weekend!!

Sam was hard work today!


It has been a very long Day. Both Sam and Nic have a cold and were quite demanding of my time today, so I'm feeling pretty tired.

This morning Sam and I cooked some cakes. Sam is really loving our cooking time at the moment and loves when he can tip the cups into the bowl. As you can see by the photos he also loves eating the milk choc bits as well.

We played puzzles, watched a few DVD's ( Toy Story for the millionth time) I cut him a banana..Ha HA Ha hA.. ( Inside joke with Veronica!!)

Nic is so gorgeous at the moment, He just loves watching Sam walk around the room and follows him with his eyes. His Smiles are priceless and he really giggles now which is very cute. He loves playing in his play table and is quite strong to hold himself up now. He's still not too keen on tummy time, but we're working on it!

Had Red`Rooster for dinner, couldn't be bothered cooking, Sam was happy he had Chippees, as he calls them.
Off to the shop, have to go and buy some fruit and Veg and Milk, might throw a block of chocolate into the trolley.. I think I've deserved it today!

Scrap Happy

Scrapbooking or Housework??? Ummmmm

Well I have finally got some scrapbooking done.

I have so many photos to scrapbook since Nic was born and just haven't had the time to do it. I entered one of my pages into a competition down at the local scrapbooking shop(none of the ones you can see, a different one on Nic..) and won the monthly prize, which was $20.00 to spend in thier shop. Which I have already done.. Ha Ha Ha Ha.

Having heaps of fun with my scrapbooking and have made lots of new friends on the internet with the same interest. And i have also learnt how to buy stuff over the internet ( DEADLY)

Have bought a few new papers and stuff ( Don't tell Adam), I always tell him i've had them for ages!! I'm sure he knows otherwise..

Well gotta go, think i might do some cooking with Sam..

Monday, May 19, 2008


Nothing much to report today, apart from 5 loads of Washing... My mum would be very proud of me.( inside joke! ) Only problem now is that i have to fold it and put it away!!
I hate that part..

Freo are such a Disappointment!

Why do I Barrack for FREO???

Well it has been another terrible loss by the Fremantle Dockers. Derek and I caught the train in to Subi to watch the Freo Dockers get beaten by the Western Bulldogs. I can't believe that we can lose another close game when it appears that we would win it easily...

I think they need their number one supporter to return from her UK trip to cheer them on!

As you can see, Claire was not cheering enough!!

Took a couple of photos in the hope that we would win.. But we didn't..

Grandma and Adam stayed home and looked after the boys, they played in the backyard and did a bit of gardening.. Nic fed and slept...

Liz, Derek, Claire and Eamon stayed for dinner, we ordered Thai from the King and I ( Guildford) really yummy...

Cleaned my house this morning and played with the boys, so other than the Dockers losing it has been a very busy but great weekend

Brunch - Baby Shower


It has been a lovely day celebrating my good friend Carmen's baby shower. I had a great group of friends at my house where we had a Brunch ( cooked wonderfully by Adam..) and played some silly games..

It was great to catchup with all the girls who i don't see everyday, like i used to at work... It's hard to get a word in at these gatherings because everyone has so much to say... As most teachers do!!

After they left we headed over to Matt and Renee's house, where Adam helped put some door handles on their newly painted doors. I must say, their reno's are looking awesome..I loved the wooden floor boards.. Sam wasn't to sure about Gus the Dog??

About to have some Dinner and probably crash early!

New Words...


Well it has been another busy day with the boys, Sam has spent alot of time outside trying to find Lizards and Caterpillars ( his new words..) He slept for nearly 2 and a half hours today, so that was a nice break for me.

Nic Is now strong enough to sit in the play table and enjoys trying to grab at the toys on the circle. He is still waking up too much for my liking, I would love to sleep all night ...I'M DREAMING!!!

Well it's now bath time..

A Work in Progress...

Time for bed.... I still have a lot to learn on how to make my blog look it's best ....

Here are a picture of my two beautiful boys. The picture of Sam was taken at a friends house, where we have coffee most thursday mornings. The picture of Nicholas was taken on Mother's day. as you can see i couldn't get one with Nic and Sam because Sam wouldn't sit and have his photo taken as most 2 year old's who are asserting their authority will!
