Thanks...

Hi everyone!! I just wanted to start today with a huge thank-you to everyone who left me well wishes for my birthday yesterday. I was beautiful to see all the wonderful messages. It made me feel even more special - especially since I spent the day at home with a the company of a napping 18 month old! LOL!!!

So.... What did I do? The kids had demand the night before that I was to sleep in! That is a foreign concept in this household! (Any Mum with kids that wake with the rising sun will tell you that!) So, to have Mark up with the kids, making breakfast and getting them ready for school was, well... simply HEAVEN! LOL! Even if he had to get ready to go to work himself.

And breakfast was delightful. A decent coffee and pancakes with tonnes of maple syrup. That of course was after the tonnes of kiddies who piled into bed with me, crushing their freshly iron school uniforms! hee! Squishy cuddles and lots of laughter.

They spoilt me with presents - blue ray dvds, beads for my bracelet and this!!!!!!


A new camera bag from Jill-e Designs!

The rest of my day involved taking the kids to school and then coming home to play with Cam before letting him have a nap. I was at a loss as to what do next (housework was not an option!) so I ended up making some popcorn and watching one of my new movies - without interruption!!! hee...

We also went out to a lovely dinner. Just us as a family. And I didn't take a single photo all day. Not even on my phone!

And before I go, I just wanted to share this layout...


{Love Story}


This was created using the February 2010 Boxx of Scraps. It was recently published in Scrapbooking Memories vol 13, no. 3. I am so excited because not only was it published but it was given a full page! YAY! I was pretty excited to find that out and then to keep flipping through the magazine to find out that this layout....
