Hoppy Easter

>> Sunday, April 16, 2017

There was great excitement this morning to find the Easter bunny had arrived :)  Lots of "oh wow" when Clay saw the Easter basket and goodies.  He immediately grabbed the chocolate bunny and started to unwrap it - nothing like having some chocolate before breakfast ;)  He actually didn't eat any of it - just mainly licked it LOL  Once he realised there wee toy cars in the basket the chocolate was quickly forgotten while he played with them and the dinosaurs that Ma Ma gave him for Easter.

Craig pointed out the bunny prints on the floor and Clay was closely inspecting them going "oh no" (think he was worried he would get blamed for all that mess! LOL).  Craig asked him how did that "Piggies" ha ha ha

We popped into see Nanny in the afternoon adn she gave Clay his Easter present - flannelette pjs.  Then off to the park for a play the cuzzies, Ma Ma and aunty Kate.  Craig also took his drone so he could have a practice flying it in more open space.

Finished a lovely day with delicious roast dinner at Diane's.

I got some cute new dies from ebay and it was perfect timing to make a birthday card for Jaxson .  I'm pleased to say the birthday boy was pretty impressed with his card :)


Jaxon's 4th Birthday

>> Sunday, April 9, 2017

Craig had to work, but Clay and I enjoyed a lovely morning celebrating Jaxson's 4th birthday today.  The kids played lots of lovely traditional games - pin the tail, egg & spoon race, treasure hunt, etc - lots of fun!  It appears the birthday boy was having such a fun time running around that no-one got a photo of hiim with his cake (only video) - oops :)


Clay's 2nd Birthday

>> Sunday, April 2, 2017

Today was Clay's 2nd birthday!  We got up and opened a few presents :)  Craig decorated the birthday cake and we packed the party gear in the car.  After last years big celebration, we decided to to have a party at the park with friends & family.  We got to the park and started setting up, then realised the toilets were out of order - oops!!  Quick calls to the guests and we headed to a different park.  The decorations were put up & food set out and the party started :)  The kids played in the playground and the adults got a chance to catch up.  We cut the cake and sang happy birthday, a bit more playing and then packed up.  The birthday boy was spoilt with lots of lovely gits and had a ball spending the morning with all his favourite people.  He was so worn out from such a busy morning, that he crashed out when we got home LOL


Easter crafts

>> Friday, March 31, 2017

Jaxson and Cohan came over for a few hours this morning for a play date.  We decided to do some Easter crafts - decorated plaster eggs (from a kit).  All the boys painted their own eggs - lovely to see the different creations from each boy.  While we waited for the paint to dry, we had a snack and watched a movie.  After the movie we added the final decorations to the eggs - once again, each egg was individual :)

Clay adores anything crafty, especially painting!  We brought some more paint brushes and set up his easel outside.  He had a ball - there was paint on the paper, all over him and on the verandah LOL  He created a few gorgeous paintings which will be given to the grandies.


Mixed Media

>> Sunday, February 19, 2017

I was looking forward to today's Simply Crafty - Dilys was demonstrating mixed media and we created our own canvas.  I am not usually a "messy" technique scrapper, so I struggled to get started with  my canvas, but once I started I really enjoyed creating with the different layers, techniques, etc.  It was amazing to see all the different canvases that everyone made.  A BIG thank you to Dilys for providing examples, demonstrating techniques and all your advice.
