What is your favourite tv show? Hojojo
What is your favourite movie? Barbie in a Mermaid Tale
What kind of pet would you like to have? Kitten
Who is your best friend? Gracie
What vegetable do you like best? capsicum
What toy would you never give away? Lulu Bear
What do you take to bed at night? Lulu Bear (& cupcake a doll I made her)
What is your favourite game? Guess who with Georgia
What is your favourite book? Noahs Ark book (a pop up book Nana gave her)
What is your favourite treat? Ice cream
What do you want do be when you grow up? An artist
What superpower would you like to have? to be able to walk on water
What do you like for lunch? fish and chips
What makes you mad? When Liv doesn't ask to play with my things.
Where would you like to go for holidays? To disneyland or the movies, I love the movies!! (lol)
What is your favourite music? Free to Dance & Hosannah

We don't usually make too much fuss, we have a family dinner where the girls get to choose what we have for dinner & then we have a cake for them. Lucia desperately wanted Grace to come down for her cake. She just adores Grace & they are like two peas in a pod.  This year I decided to cook her a proper cake as I had never done one. I made her a tinkerbell house. She loved it. It didn't turn out exactly as I hoped but it was pretty cool. Also this Anthony took her on her own for a daddy date & they watched Shrek 3D and had some special one on one. She was sooo excited. She is a daddys girl.

She is so different from the other girls, so unique. She is a quiet one, likes to play on her own, likes definate things including food, toys, & people!! *grin* She is quietly confident in herself & doesn't really have to have a lot of people around her or friends to be happy, (very like her Dad), she truly is so beautiful. She absolutely LOVES anything bling. Sooo funny & is very definate about what she puts together. Strong yet gentle, quiet yet loud. She can be a perfectionist, but is much cruisier than her sisters. She can carry on sometimes but is more explosive in the moment than holding onto things. She will stay quiet until it is too much then explode, but will be over it once she knows she has been heard. We are gently teaching her to communicate before she gets to that point & that she will be heard. Her thoughts & feelings are just as important as anyone elses. She is just such a delight & balance to the family. She really wants long hair but still has wispy baby hair so we call her feathers. We keep assuring her it will day!!!

Happy Birthday sweet one. You truly are your namesake......Bringer of Light. We couldn't imagine life without you!!! Love you.

Dinosaur Dancing

So we had another busy school week. Lucia had her dinosaur disco. It was very cute. She went as a paelentologist, she was the only one. She was adamant she was not going as a dinosaur & she didn't care that she would be the only one not in costume!!! Soooo like her father. Anyway I think it was very clever (even some of the adults asked what she was, and I was thinking get a grip!!? I mean how cool that she was comfortable in her own skin & didn't have to be like everyone else) plus she said to me "mama I don't even like dinosaurs & costumes are too itchy"..............

Bit of adjustment to this.......

Cutest darn paelentologist I have ever seen. She had a great time giving us a concert (even if some adults & their kids are dingbats!!!)
Love you Lulu may you always be confident in who you are & not give a rip what other people think!!!!
Happy Sunday.

I am incredibly blessed to have an awesome family, loving husband & three beautiful girls, amazing friends and the ability to be free & creative!!! What more does a girl need?!!

Happy Sunday.

A tuckered out little girl & her Mama

Well Lucia and I had the big excursion to Brisvegas to see a show, the Mr McGhee & the biting flea. They did a really good job & she was sooo excited to see a book come to life. The kids were all excited about him getting naked, go figure. Thank goodness he didn't!! It was a big day for a 1 hour show, with 60 Grade Ones in tow. I take my hat off to the teachers, they were amazing, I definately couldn't do it. This photo was on our way home on the train. Happy Thursday.

More Scrapping........

My classes are going really well at Sunbird. I am thoroughly enjoying it. It is nice to be able to do something that I really like & get paid to do it. Here is a couple of more layouts that I have taught or are coming up.

These two will be sketch classes, so we give the girls a sketch & they choose their own papers. It is always fun to see what they come up with. Their own flavour.

This class is part of my technique classes. Making ribbon & flowers out of patterned paper using things that you already have in your scrap room. Punches, twine, buttons. The girls are really enjoying learning how to make their own embellishments. I get a sense of satisfaction watching how happy they are when they complete something. I have a challenge this week to try & complete some boys pages. That will be interesting. At least I have some SUPER cute photos of my nephews. Just hoping it doesn't make me heartsick missing them, while scrapping their photos.

So that's it for me today. 3 out of the 5 of us are sick. Mmmmm I just love winter!!! LOL. Am hoping they all get over it really quickly as we have a HUGE week this week with concerts at school & excursions.

Happy Monday

She is Four..........

My baby is 4, I cannot believe it. It only seems like yesterday that she was here & we were delighting in our family becoming 5. Our little blessing.

So Livvy at 4.

What is your favourite tv show? Hi 5 & Psalty
What is your favourite movie? Genevieve & Ariel
What kind of pet would you like to have? Bunny Rabbit
Who is your best friend? (or best fwiend as livvy says) Madi
What vegetable do you like best? Corn
What toy would you never give away? Mermaid
What do you take to bed at night? Blankie & pillow
What is your favourite game? Barbies
What is your favourite book? Ariel & the prayer book I read to her every night.
What is your favourite treat? Chocolate (she is a girl)
What do you want do be when you grow up? A big girl (LOL der mum)
What superpower would you like to have? swim under the ocean (see a pattern here)
What do you like for lunch? Baked beans
What makes you mad? taking away my stuff
Where would you like to go for holidays? Disneyland (totally into justice & reform hahahahaha)
What is your favourite music? Hosannah (she loves Brooke)
She loves princess stuff & is quite girly (Ariel & mermaids are her favourite)
She constantly sings, dances & is just full of life.
She loves baked beans & avocado, play doh, cootering (scootering) & almost anything we want to do.
She lights up our life.
She still has trouble with some of her words, but it is sooo cute I just cannot correct her. She will do it in time & I really just want to enjoy her at this age.
She is our little comedian. So hard to go mad at her as she makes us crack up laughing when we get cranky.
She is sensitive & sometimes overreacts to stuff.

So what can I say about this darling girl. She is princess all mixed up with grit. She hardly cries even when she really hurts herself, she is a little bruiser. Sometimes I wince when she hurts herself & want to pick her up but no she dusts herself off & off she goes. She loves being grubby (much to my chagrin). climbing on everything & will always be very tactile. She loves making a mess. She is loving, kind, bubbly, energetic (she makes me tired) & just LOVES those people she loves.

Who would have thought that our world would be full of twirls, giggles, pink, drama, & oh so much love.
We love you precious girl. Happy 4th Birthday.
Love Mama xx
