Birthday Boy!

My baby boy is seven.............How did that happen so fast?? He had a good birthday yesterday, he was up at 5:55 (way too early). We got him a new bike, a remote-control robot that shoots things out of it, some Lego, some clothes from pumpkin patch, and a pirate book, he was one very spoilt boy. He actually woke up a couple of hours after he went to bed, the night before his birthday and caught us wrapping pressies and putting his seat up on his bike, so he got to have a sneak peak at it. I said to Jon lucky it wasn't Christmas eve, lol.

He asked if he could take a cake to school and I said that would be OK, but that was before he told me he wanted a rock and roll cake. OMG I had no idea how I was going to create a cool rock and roll cake for him to take to school, I decided to do an electric guitar, and it turned out OK, just don't look to close, lol, the kids at school thought it was cool, so I was relieved:0)

After school Jon walked up to the school with his new bike and he rode it home. The day was so sunny and warm, we had a family BBQ for tea, with my sister and her kids, my mum and our good friends, He was spoilt again with more cool pressies. Then we had another cake, which was a Bart Simpson peppermint choc-chip ice-cream cake (yum).

He got a call before school on his birthday from Grandma and Grandad, who have been away for about 6 weeks in their caravan, they will be home in a couple of weeks (thankgoodness, they have been missed, by the kids and by us.)
Toady was a pretty quiet kindda day, just stayed home and cleaned up, Ben got to play with all his new stuff. We did take a drive up to the block, the digger was there today digging out for the foundations, the cement mixer should be there in the morning. The kids were very excited to see some action finally. Dad won't say how long he thinks it will take to complete, it must be a builder thing, they never seem to tell anyone that, LOL!

That's all for today.

Just a quickie post before I get tea ready.
Big news is we finally have approval from council for our new house.....Yippee!! (We've only been waiting two months:0( So the excavator is booked for Tuesday. Fingers crossed the rain stays away. We are all very excited about building this new house.

have been doing a bit of scrapping the last couple of days, I think I have my mojo back at last:0)

Firstly this one of Georgia collecting Shells and things.

Jackson, Georgia and Amelia at the shack.

And this one I did a while back I finished the journaling last night. It says "Ben loves to ride his bike to the shops, home from school, around the block or just in the back yard. But his most favourite place to ride is through big muddy puddles."

Better get tea ready before the kids start complaining. LOL! Burritos tonight. Yum!

I'm Still Alive!

Yes I am still alive........I'm just very slack at blogging. lol. Thanks for your comment Sharmaine, you got my bum into gear:-)

A lot has happened in the last couple of months, so much I can't really remember, so I'll just write about what has happened lately. We spent the weekend at the shack, it was really windy up the east coast but sunny. We have a little beach spot we go to which is nearly always sheltered from the wind, so the kids went swimming in their wetsuits and had so much fun.

We picked up Georgia's costume for the concert next month. It is so cute (red and white, her favorite colours) They are doing a song and dance again this year, the song is called "Are my ears on straight?" They are little dolls. Here is a photo of it, but it looks so much better IRL.

We have got Ben's birthday coming up next week, seven OMG, where does the time go. We have got him a new bike, to replace his old one, which is falling apart. We are not going to have a party with school friends this year, just a family BBQ. We took Ben and his little friend to see the Monster Truck show a while back, which we told him was part of his B'day pressie too.

We have a busy run coming up, all three of my little ones have their birthday before Christmas, and Georgia's dance concert, and getting organised for Christmas.

I'll leave with some photos of what I've done craft/scrapbooking wise in the past months.

My gorgeous niece Amelia, my sister (her mum) said she wasn't very photogenic, that explains the title.

Georgia in her book week costume, I still have to scrap Ben's photo's ( he was old McDonald)

Georgia at the beach, last summer. It says "The best thing about building sandcastles is knocking them down!"

My cutie and his dimples.

I picked up a copy of "Softies". A book with the most adorable softies to make. I have only managed Alfred Monkey so far. He is a very metro-sexual guy. He's not afraid to wear pink LOL! I really want to make some more little softies out of the book soon.

A little birdie bag, pattern by the talented Mel Goodsell, at Tarisota's, I need to finish the button and do the mini album.

A simple card I made for my good friend for her 30Th.

And that's about it from me.

Thanks for reading, if anybody does, lol.
