What's Been happening..

As usual it has been busy busy around here.. Greg has been working away a lot and the boys as usual are keeping me on my toes..

We decided to do some craft one afternoon and I made up some salt dough for the boys to bake and paint..

so easy and they had a ball doing it.

It was also my Birthday on the 13th.. and on Sat night Greg cooked me a lovely roast dinner and I also got some gorgeous orchids delivered and my fav Caramel Mudcake..yummmm. I spent Monday doing nothing lol.. I had managed to get Brodie booked into daycare for a make up day so I spent the day watching videos and basically relaxing.. was sooo noice! and on Tuesday my gorgeous girlfriends ook me out to lunch at the Glenmore and I got another bunch of flowers.. soo spoilt..

Was a very exciting weekend as not only was it my birthday but I got a call at 3 am on Sat night to go and look after Zoe's and Joe's kids as her waters had broken.. Felt soo bad cause I had forgotten to turn the vol on my phone up..(doh) so took them a few calls to get luckily I get there in time as it only took her an hour or two and Lily-Rose came into the world.. She is such a cutie.. and the look on her big brother's faces when they woke up and I told them their little sister had arrived was priceless.. I just wish their mum and Dad had been there to see it.

And I finally have some pics to show because Gil and Nettie also welcomed into the world a gorgeous little girl, Rhiannon on the 24th Aug.. Sooo lucky to have two little girls to spoil.

Well we are getting organised to head off to Coolum tomorrow for 2 weeks holidays.. can't wait. We all so need a break. So if I don't get a chance to Blog while I am there I hope you all have a great couple of weeks of school hols..

And please keep your prayers going for Joshua.. he is still going through chemo and we have had some other family deaths and illnesses as well so all thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Lubs ya!

Happy Father's Day!!

Well for the first time since he the day he was born Declan's Birthday was also Father's Day..

Greg got to go to an afternoon tea at Prep on Friday Afternoon where Declan gave him the gifts he had made for him at school.. On Sunday it was so busy organising the party that Greg really didn't get to have much of a restful Father's Day. But he got the gorgeous pressies the kids had made him at school and we also got him some more gear for the boat.. Rod holders, and a knife holder and the boys insisted on picking him a lure each as well.. so I think he did

The four Boys in my life..

And we were lucky enough to have Pa here so got a Photo with the three generations as well..

Connor's Presents.. The picture is of some UBeaut machine that makes houses or I honestly don't know where his imagination comes

Declan's Pressies..

And Brodie's from Daycare..

I always think home made pressies are the best!.

I hope all you Dad's out there had a wonderful Father's Day.

I just wish my Dad could've been here still..Mind you Brodie mentioned again to Pa on Sunday how he was gonna swing so high that he could go to Heaven to visit Poppy. If only it was that easy.

Happy Birthday Declan!!!

Yep... Can you believe it our boy is now 6!

He had a huuge weekend.. It started on Saturday night when Daddy managed to pull out his first loose tooth...

It has been loose for about 2 weeks and he was so excited that it was finally out. For his Birthday he wanted to sleep in the tent in the back yard with Daddy and his Brothers.. and Lucky him.. Marnie and Pa came to visit for the weekend so Pa got to sleep there too. So the Tooth Fairy had to visit him in the tent and then it poured in the middle of the night.. lol.. Marnie and I had a great night sleep

But in typical boy fashion they loved it!

Then on Sunday (His actual Birthday) they all woke up really early and after giving Pa and Daddy their Father's Day Presents (Photos to follow).. It was time to set up for his party..

And of course it had to be a bug party.. so I have been working my butt off for a couple of weeks getting a heap of bug stuff ready.. All his friends got here at 10 am and between showers of rain we managed to have a Bug Hunt, Pass the Parcel, Lots of food.. and off course lots of presents..

But it was also Julie's birthday so when she dropped Ry off I managed to surprise her with a little cake and we all sang Happy Birthday to I have decided I am soo much better at making boys cakes than girls.. lucky hey..lmao..

Don't ya love the

This is the Birthday Card I made for Declan.. I also cut out another copy of the Magnifying glass to pop it off the page and put clear plastic in the centre.. looked very cool if I say so And we had Bug net Lolly Bags and and a bug jar invitation..


And this was the buggy cake.. Declan loved all the new bugs he got to keep..

Here is the decorations and food.. including the Birthday sign I made for him, Plus we had Bug pictures hanging everywhere. My attempt at Choc I was told they tasted There was flies (sultana's) in the ice blocks and I also had to decorate 30 cupcakes for him to take to school on Monday..

And the party.. and lots of presents.. He was very spoilt.. He got bug games, a remote control Rattlesnake, Bug books, Bug Building kit, Lego, an Antosphere ( Thanks Auntie Julie.. You will be cleaning up the mess if he knocks it over hey...) lol. He can't wait to set it up. And We got him some 'Littlest Petshop Animals', It was all he wanted from the whole Target Toy catalogue..and I also managed to find him a Hex Bug Nano kit.. It is soo cool.. and he got a few more Hex Bug's to go with it.. See I told you he was spoilt!  He loves it all.... Though he did ask Daddy why everyone gave him bug stuff.. duh! Maybe cause that's all he talks

We had to finish the party with a Sausage sizzle cause he really wanted to have a BBQ too.. lol

He had a blast and I think all his friends did too.

All I can say is I am all bugged out..lmao.. so glad it over for another year.

One down.. 2 more to go!
