Wish me Luck..

Well the time has come for me to get serious about toilet training Sam. We started the other day before he got in the shower and it was a success, so i have decided that there is no turning back now. Have had a couple of little accidents, but that is to be expected... Wish me luck!!

I have got a pile of jocks on the table ready for the little accidents that might happen..
So what did Sam do with them when he found them.....
I just about wet myself laughing.. He thought he was very funny!

Gotta Love a Weekend..

I really do enjoy the weekends. It gives me a chance to sink my teeth into some scrapping as well as doing family things with Adam and the boys.
I worked Friday night and Saturday morning. Then I did Sonya's class on Saturday afternoon, The Quirky things you say..
I have also completed a few other layouts this weekend. Country Paper craft has an Australia Day cyber crop happening this weekend with challenges for us to complete -- and here a few of them.
Some cute photos of Sam playing in the dirt out the back

Some Kalbarri photos of Sam at the Beach.
This is an old photo of Adam and his younger brother Damon.
(Ooops just realised they are all of Sam, I might have to scrap some of Nic this afternoon..)
We also went for a ride with Matt and Renee on Sunday morning around the river. I made
10.04 km's, which i was pretty chuffed with.
Adam has been mowing the lawns and doing some gardening today -
while I had Lesley with Reuben and Kiera up for a cuppa and a swim.. The kids had a great morning.
Hope you have a had a great Long Weekend!

I'm a Lucky girl!

Whoo Hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Look a my new camera....... I am a very lucky girl.. I have been wanting to buy one of these for a few months. Last year Adam opened his mouth and said that he would match me dollar for dollar for ever cent that i could save. ( Silly man.. because i think he said it as an off the cuff comment...LOL) but i held him to it, and on Saturday, we drove around to 3 Harvey Normans to get one.
There is so much to learn and I cant wait to do this..

I have taken some great photos with it already and will post some later today. I gotta go and help Brett set up his new classroom. Aunty Cath is looking after the boys, hopefully they will be good for her..
I have also nearly finished another layout which i will post as well.. See you later today!
