Create...& family life...

There has been so much happening that I feel like I have fallen off the grid here in blogging land! :D Sorry Guys! hee hee... But I do have something I can share.

The next prompt is up at Journal Challenges and we are documenting our "favourites".

This is what I came up with...
{Favourite no. 4}


I wanted to think outside the box with this challenge and I know it's cliche to go with a picture of your kids so.... I journaled about the number 4. And especially about what it means to me now.

journaling reads: until this moment i've never really had a favourite number. not even a lucky one. but i've grown to love 4 because of you. i am blessed 4 times over, i have 4 times the amount of love and 4 times the joy. 4 is just perfect for me...x i love you guys.

Also in the past week, we have celebrated a new member of our family (our nephew Elijah)...

Isn't he the cutest!!!

Mark has celebrated another birthday...

Happy birthday honey!! WE LOVE YOU!!! Mwah!!

We've had hockey carnivals....


Supported our nephews soccer semi-finals (big brothers to Elijah)...

Bounced...

Danced...
and entertained...
Not to mention kicking footballs (Auskick), having tantrums, making messes, doing puzzles, visiting friends, dressing up, gardening and going to school. In between all this, not much scrapping is getting done!! So tomorrow, I may have to forget about the tantrums just to fit some in! LOL!!

Thanks for visiting...x
