Happy Monday

How can you not have a great Monday when you have Elise to smile back at you..

Freo... Way to go

For the last 16 years, from the very beginning of their club i have barracked for the Fremantle Dockers.  It all started when i was at Uni down at Notre Dame in Fremantle and the club and the Uni forged a bit of a bond because both were new to Freo!
So for many many years i have listened to people say to me, the dockers are crap, why do you go for the dockers..etc  ....and i have gone for them anyway, that's just what you do when they are your team!!
But Geez.. they are having a great season...ha ha ha

So there you go.. I love my footy and i love my Freo
(i bet some of you did'nt know i loved footy so much... that's what happens when you grow up with brothers..!!)
Yesterday i went to the footy with my FIL (Derek) and my mum and dad.. It was a great game to go to, a Huge win!!

You Capture ~ Sky

You may remember last week i stumbled across a website called " I should be folding laundry" where you post a photo you have taken based on a particular skill or topic. This Weeks theme was SKY. Here are my examples, i had to go back through my photos i had already taken because it has been such a cold and wet dreay week, that all you would of got was grey, grey and more grey!  The first one i took outside my window on my way over to Brisbane last year. I think this one is my favourite of the three..
 The second set of photos adam took on a work trip down to Albany a few years ago.

These last set of photos were taken on our trip to Bali earlier in the year.

I took them as i was drinking cocktails watching the sun set over the water....Ooh I wish to be back It is a long way from where I've been over the last 8 weeks!

Kindy Roster

Today was so exciting for Sam.. It was the first time that i was able to go on Kindy roster with him.. Last term i wasn't able to it because i was very heavily pregnant and earlier on in this term I had only just had Elise.. So today was the day!!

He did some painting, after reading a story about Noah's Ark...( it's a )

He loves building with the blocks.. like all little boys do!
The ate the jelly that they made on Tuesday at kindy.. i ended up finishing Sam'

We played play dough together...

I am pretty sure outside play is the best part of his day... He loves playing with his little friend Cooper.

It was such a great morning, I can't wait until next term to do it again!!

Parallel Lives

I was blog hopping today when i came across this blog..I should be folding laundry..

At first it was the name of her blog that made me giggle because it was exactly what i should of been doing, instead i was on the
Anyway She has a photography challenge each week, where she asks you to capture a photo based on a particular theme.. and i thought well this will be a good thing to try.. because i think it will help me improve when using my camera and taking photos.  This weeks challenge was to take a photo showing : "Depth of field"... (  here is my example )

 So looking forward to her next photo challenge...

BUT - there is more to this post.... I started to read back through her blog posts and realised when looking at the pictures that she has a baby that looks similar in age to Elise.. i soon found out that her little boy was actually born on exactly the same day as Elise... she had a c-section exactly like me... Her little boy Eli, has not been the best of babies, just like Elise.. he wasn't feeding the best, wasn't sleeping and just wouldn't settle and cry alot.....He  even had a similar birth weight and length.. His name is even
So i am sitting there reading all this thinking... this lady is me, she is living my life right now.. we had so much in common it seemed very weird that someone, somewhere over the other side of the world, can be doing the same thing i am...trying to be the best mum i can be with a new born baby.
makes you stop and think!

The Biggest Morning tea

Today i was able to pop into the shop at Tomorrow's Memories where the ladies were holding the Cancer Council Biggest morning tea.  It was such a lovely morning with loads of yummy cakes to eat and cups of tea to drink.  They also held an auction and i think it raised close to $900 dollars.. can't wait to hear what the final tally for the day was.
Here are some photos from the day..

Congratulations ladies on an amazing morning.. You should be so proud of everything you did today to make it a very special morning..

This poor Grasshopper never stood a chance........
We were out the back yesterday arvo when Adam spotted this gorgeous grasshopper.. i guess the easiest way i can explain it to you is in the form of a Mathematics Equation....



The Poor thing never stood a  chance.... Which resulted in Nic being stormed inside and put on the naughty mat

Hopefully you wont ring the RSPCA... I promise i am raising my kids to love the world and all little creatures in
