8 Months

Cant believe that Elise is 8 months... Such a gorgeous girl... she has definitely come alive now..
I'm starting to think we look very especially the big eyes :)
She is laughing and squealing at the top of her voice.  She rolls everywhere, is just about up on her haunches rocking back and forth, so I'm assuming shell be on the move in the imminent future...

These are the same photos in colour and black and white.  Just been practising my black and white using
Im off out tonight with the Kindy mums for an end of year drink...yay!!  .....may "Mr Hangover" be very kind to me tomorrow....ha ah ah ha...

Albany Photos ~ Part 1

Here are some photos from the first few days on our trip away to Albany.  I took 477 photos ( , but probably only 150 were any good.  So i figured the easiest way to show you some of my great shots is to mask them onto a Digi template.

This was Elise's first trip to the beach.  It was a bit cold to go swimming as you can see by the jumpers we are all wearing.. lol... But she loved playing in the sand.

 We took the boys fishing to Emu Point.  There were no fish biting which was a bit of s shame bu the boys loved it anyway.  I was slightly worried about them climbing over the rocks, but they loved it.  Sam stuck at it a little longer than Nic did... he was more interested in throwing pebbles into the
 This was the same arvo we took Elise to the Beach.. The boys couldn't swim, but loved taking their buckets and spades down and making sand castles and running along the beach with the ball.
We went to a couple of playgrounds while we were there.  Sam loves playgrounds, he would make me take him one to everyday if i let  We also took the boys to the Batavia pirate ship.. They were able to climb down into it and walk around inside which was a lot of fun.

Will post some more photos tomorrow... Im still trying to unpack from the week.  It would have to be one of the worst jobs  with loads of washing to do and putting away toys and books and beach gear, it just seems to take forever.  I will probably still be doing it by the end of the Will keep you posted.

Digi Layout

Earlier in the week there was a Link over at the Designer House Blog which gave you links to several blogs to collect parts of a Fall Digi kit. I challenged Tracey over at A Luscious Journey to collect the kit and create a layout using only that kit.  I also did the same and then we were to post the layouts on our blogs.. It is amazing how each of our layouts are soooooooooooo different even though we have used the same kit. There was no reason for this challenge at all.. it was a " just because"
You should head over to Tracey's blog and check out her layout.  It is great.  For someone who as only been scrapping for a couple of months she is very good !!

Welcome Summer!

Welcome Summer... May you bring us lots of Sunny days so we can enjoy the sunshine playing in the pool together!!

 Now i know its not Summer yet but with the weather getting to 37 yesterday here in Perth, the kids enjoyed the afternoon playing in the little pools.  We cant swim in our big pool yet, Adam just needs to sort it out first.  But kids had just as much fun in this pool!!
Do you know what spins me out the most is that last year there was only these two cheeky monkeys enjoying the pool.  Now we have another little cheeky monkey ( Elise) who loves the water as much as they

( Dec 2009)

 Can you tell that Nic is my mischievous!!!!

Hope you are having a good week :)
