Pirates page from kinder days

This is a page I did when owen was at Kinder. I will have to come up with a new one this year :D

Masterchef Owen- ( I won a prize for this layout :D)

Sorry the photo isnt the greatest. Hes making potato skins here with the assistance of his sous chef, Dad.
One time we ran out of potatoes, and so he created a new entree of `Bread skins` LOL. The same as the potato ones but using bread- well done master chef.


If you hadnt already guessed we are holding a
Pirates of the Caribbean party today for Owen who is turning 7 next week.
Youll never guess who is dressed as??? LOL all set with hairychest and all. Apparently pirates dont smile for photos :D
Owen was very involved with the baking this year. He made the treasure chest cake, and cupcakes, and decorated the biscuits, below.
He has become very interested in cooking and often cooks dinner with dad. I have some very cute pics of him in his chefs hat, Ill have to find one to show.

The boys have also made a `Pin the patch on the pirate` game. Dad printed it and they both coloured it, ready for the game.
Dad helped Owen design his invitation too, it has become a bit of a tradition in our family to design our own.
As you know I love to scrapbook everything and I usually include the invitation. :D

I think Mr Owen is going to have lots of fun this afternoon with all his mates from Mothers group.
Happy Birthday you gorgeous boy-
Wait for the next installment of his birthday, this isnt the only party for this lucky chap- love ya O xxxx

Daniel RIP We will never forget you

I I like many Aussies have followed the case of Daniels disappearance,over the years.
We have all hoped he would be found safe and well, but deep in our souls we knew that would probably never happen.
We learnt yesterday that the person, if you can call him that, was arrested yesterday for Daniels murder.
I hope that Daniels family can now have some closure.
I hope I will never have to experience what those poor parents have gone through over the years.
It is my worst fear, losing a child and not knowing where they are. Are they alive or dead? I couldnt imagine anything worst.
Please hold your kids close and treasure all the time you have with them, it is soooo precious.
RIP Daniel

Kaszazz workshop

This weekend is my workshop weekend. I hold one every month, with between 5 and 6 girls attending.
I love having a small group, it makes it much more fun.
This month we are doing this divine baby page.
It can be made in blue or pink. Seeing as I have no pink ones, I did a bluey LOL
We are also doing a card workshop which Ill load later on.

Sorry these photos arent that great. You cant really see all the detail.
This is my second baby, Owen, who is about to turn 7 :D

McClelland Sculptures

McClelland Gallery

This wonderful place is just down the road from us. Im ashamed to say that after 10 years of living in this area, it is the first time we have visited it.
It really is such a treasure, to have in our community.
Im hoping that we are able to visit it more often, as the kids really enjoyed discovering all the sculptures around the grounds.
We did, of course also have to stop for coffee and cake at the end of our little jaunt around the grounds :D

Harry Potter- farewell :(

Harry Potter was just fantastic! I loved every minute of it. I was so disappointed when it finally ended. I will miss waiting for the next installment that usually comes around every so often.
It is an excellent story from a very admired writer.
Will she write anymore????

We have all been Harry Potter fans in our house. Even before the kids arrived Barry and I avidly collected the books and watched the movies.
Tomorrow we are both heading off to the movies to see the final episode. It should be exciting as well as sad that it has all come to an end.
My boys are well into it too, not only the Wii game, Lego or movies, but the actual books too. Liam has read the first 3 and when he finished I bought him the movie to watch.
My boys are a bit sensitive and wouldnt watch movies for a long time. They would leave the room when I sneakily put one on, not Harry Potter at that time, but something like Finding Nemo. They were just too scared. I dont know where this fear came from.
Eventually, Liam, at the ripe old age of 7 decided that movies were cool and now we are beginning to catch up with movies that other kids saw at the age of 3 LOL.
Its fun  for Barry and I though, watching them again with our kids.
Harry Potter will be alive in our house for many years to come, Im sure :D
