We all got very spoilt here over Xmas.. the boys were impressed cause Santa left them what they had asked for.. Luckily they have only small requests at this point. God help Santa in a few years! I was very spoilt and got a digital photo frame.. It will be good to actually see some of the thousands I take.. now to just find the time to pick through them and decide what to put on there! Connor also picked out a little teapot for me so I can have a 'real' tea in the morning which was really sweet. Greg got the new Die Hard Quadrology among other things so he was happy. We hope you were all spoilt as well and had a wonderful day!

I then got a phone call on Wed arvo to say that the painters, that we had been waiting for since Sept, were finally coming.. On Thursday!! So I of course went into panic mode! Luckily they were only doing all the architraves and feature walls but they also had to do my whole craft/office room which was in a royal mess! ands still is!! We had our Playgroup Xmas party on Thurs morning as well so it was one hell of a day The boys made some gorgeous reindeer biccies I got off the Boxx and everyone loved them.. Even if they did look like they had been hit by a semi a few times..lol.
Everyone was gone on Friday so I spent the day cleaning and trying to make the house look normal again .. and gee what a difference getting rid of the horrible colours make.. Will put up before and after photos another day when I have more time.. But we had 2 lots of visitors passing through yesterday and a party last night to go to. Today was supposed to be day for Greg to get into the fencing but I ended up with some sort of stomach bug so have spent most of the day doing nothing.. and no I was not hungover..lol.. Visitors tonight and tomorrow I will need to get stuck in and get ready for Christmas.. The plan is to have as little as possible to do on Xmas day. Whew no wonder I am tired!! and I have to say sorry to all those I have not had a chance to chat to this week. Now maybe you will understand and forgive me.
But I just wanted to say a Huge Merry Christmas from all of us here to all of you out there and I hope the day is fun and relaxing and full of joy.. Will see you in 2008 if not before!

The layout started with the arrows that a darling friend Linda had sent me and grew from there. I simply journaled what I hoped the boys would learn in order to be decent young men.. A mother can dream that they would learn it all can't she?? Well here is the lo I did.. The colours aren't that crash hot but it is basically all black white and red. With the gold I..
And I get a prize.. woohoo what more can a girl want!

Unfortunately Brodie was asleep but I did get one of the three of them when he woke up. And of course Declan had to include his new Baby animals.. More to add to the collection
We took heaps of pics to get a few good ones but we had great fun and it was nice to actually be in the photos for a change.. Sunday arvo was big nap time in this house I can tell you. It was a fun weekend but back to reality now.. Kindy, daycare and Connor has his Prep Orientation this week.. Getting closer!!
Well if you made it this far you did well.. Hmm I wonder where Declan gets his storytelling ability from!! lol Hope you are all having a great week..

I have been talking to these girls for the last 6 mths on the forum and it was absolutely fantastic to finally meet some of them. They are all such beautiful 'ladies', ahem, and we all clicked as if we had spent the weekend with long lost friends.. Having a warped sense of humour definitely helps and I laughed until I had tears pouring down my face.. I can't remember the last time I laughed that much.. Now what happens on camp stays on camp so I definitely can't tell you everything we got up to but boy did I get some fantastic photos.. OOh I had better get some good Chrissie presents or else there will be some extortion going on!
We also met up with a few of the other Boxx girls for dinner and it really is fantastic to be able to meet some of the talented ladies I see on the Boxx all the time!
I will put some photos up some time next week but some are definitely not for publication..I am giggling now just thinking about it.. I also got one of the girls to take some new photos of me so I will be able to put a decent piccie up on here. I am great at taking piccies but not at being in them. And I got some gorgeous photos of the bridge at night etc.. it was fun to take some nice shots for a change and not just the usual family stuff. its been ages since I've had time to play with my camera.
Well about an hour and a half until i get on the plane so might be time for another Latte. I could go on and on forever about my weekend but I guess you get the idea. I had a ball..
Chat soon xx

This is my first attempt at a blog so here goes nothing.
Brodie my youngest boy has just started walking last week. He is just over 12 mths and trying soo hard to catch up to his older brothers..
Connor, the eldest, started getting pocket money when he turned 5 this mth and he has been saving it, some birthday money and dug into his money box and today bought himself a toy BBQ.. I am very proud of him as he hasn't whinged or anything about not being able to get it straight away and has just been patiently saving until we had enough. He just seems soo grown up.
I can't wait until this weekend.. I am flying down to Brisvegas to meet some girls off the Boxx and a weekend without Greg and the kids seems like heaven at the moment. A bit nervous though. I haven't met any of the ladies IRL yet so I kinda feel like I'm going on a blind date.. or starting a new school. Excited but nervous. I know the ladies are all lovely so I'm not too nervous..
Anyway that's it for my first post.. As usual I have plenty of work to do and need to get organised for this weekend as well. Hope you enjoy reading my ramblings!
