You Capture ~ Play

The theme of You Capture this week is Play.  This photo of Sam and Nic was taken of the two of them dressed up in their Spiderman Costumes.  Nanna found them in the Melbourne Markets when she was shopping with Grandma.  The boys love them.

These 2 little boys are my very own Super
I don't think that there is any kid that doesn't love dressing up in a costume and pretending they are someone else.  I love this photo of Sam perched up on the couch like Spiderman cute    :)

Head over to Beth's blog I should be folding Laundry and have a look at all the other photos from this week!

Comparing Us All..

I was looking through my photo album this weekend trying to work out if Elise looks a lot like me when we are the same age ( 4 Months). I think we look similar in the eyes and nose and the lips are scarily  What do you think?  The photo of me is a scanned one, so it is not the best quality but it's the best i could find!

This is a photo of Adam.  I am not really sure what age he is here.  I will have to ask him Mum.  ( He was born in 1974)..But he looks similar in age to the rest of us. Maybe a little older because he is on his dad's shoulders.   No wonder i married him look how cute he was even back
Then it got me thinking how similar all my kids look to each other.  Sam and Elise are definitely similar in looks.  When Elsie was born, you could of sworn she was a mini Sam.  Nic has always had a different look.  He has more of his dad in him than the other two.    People say my boys look similar at the age they are now, but i think they look different.  Maybe that's because i see them everyday and i know their different personalities.

So here they all are at about the same age of 4 Months, give or take a few

Jessica Sprague's new Beginner classes have been revamped and this is the first layout from a set of 4.  I know I have already down the beginner classes.  But it is always good to go back and refresh your skills.  I would really recommend her classes if you are keen to learn a little bit about Digi Scrapping.

So there you have
Hope you are having a good weekend!

I mentioned earlier in the week that i was going to show you the pictures of my new bedroom.  I didn't really know what i wanted for my birthday, but i really wanted my bedroom painted and freshened  up a little.  So Adam painted it a couple of weekends ago and i went and bought the new bed spread and picture frames for my birthday.  Adam's family gave me the lamp and teal pillow.  I think it looks fantastic!.  i didn't do too badly, but i cant say i will be going into interior designing anytime
Ok here is the before shot~  Don't you just love the apricot walls. ( I have wanted to paint them since we moved in a year ago..)
We have got some new blinds coming aswell, but i have to wait about 3 weeks for them!

Here is the finished product ~

I think i love the picture frames the best, because i can interchange them as the kids grow up.!
The kids are now banned from my new, clean  But every time, i try and go and have 5 mins to myself in there.. i seem to have 4 little feet following behind me..

Happy Birthday Mum

I just wanted to wish my Mum .... the best birthday ever!
Love you lots xx

The best i have for you today is some pictures of Elise.  But she is getting very cute!

There you go Dad something different to look at while you eat your
Dad has been giving me heaps saying that he wanted something new to look at. He was getting bored of looking at the same photo from the last cheeky!!
Hopefully i can keep it more updated after the school holidays.  I haven't even been able to do any scrapping.  Nic is taking all of my time and energy at the I am thinking i might just go and tie him to the chair so i can get some things done.. What do you  ?
