Create...and a birthday wish or two...

Today is a special day for my little niece, Leah... She is turning ONE today! And it is also a special day for our dear friend, Lorraine... We are sending them both big hugs and kisses along with a little something in the mail! We hope you both have a wonderful day!


(Sorry Lorraine, same photo as last year!)

Today I have had a little time to create as well. It's nice to be able to sit back and just see layouts come together...
The first layout is for Tahlia...

She is very conscious of being a big sister at the moment and especially being the ONLY sister, now that she has a new baby brother on the way... I just wanted to let her know what an amazing job she does with her younger brothers. Not just playing with and entertaining them, but teaching and guiding them too...

The second layout is one for Ethan, and his latest little saying, which happens to be "On Friday..."
You see, according to Ethan, everything happens on a Friday, regardless of what day it is. It can be hockey, (which is on a Friday!), to Ballet, (on a Tuesday), to going to the toilet! LOL!! What ever it is, it happened or will happen "on Friday".

The last layout for today is again about Ethan and his boyish habit of collecting sticks...

He has a new found enthusiasm for them since we've been camping. He will often pick up a stick in his travels and call it his "marshmallow" stick or his "chopping" stick... I don't mind this fascination he has at the moment as long as his "chopping" stick stays close to the ground!

Gorgeous layouts... I love how you document the little things that you'd possibly forget if you didn't have something to look back on to remind you... I must start doing more of that too!!

Thank you for my birthday message, Leanne. I had a lovely birthday, thank you! I was really pleased to receive Mark's e-mail too, and I will reply asap. In the meantime, I hope that you're managing okay. Rick and I are thinking of you lots. Hang in there! Love Lorraine. xxxxx
