Everyday Moments

We have been lucky enough to many catch ups with friends over the last two months - Kristy and her friends were in Hervey Bay just after Christmas and popped into visit us one day (forgot to take photos - so disappointed!).

I had to work, but Craig and Clay headed to the beach to join family to celebrate Brodie's birthday.

A friend I haven't seen since high school was in town on holidays recently and asked to catch up. It was lovely to meet Katrina's husband and daughter and to introduce her to Craig and Clay.  Tahlia won Clay over by showing him his photo in snapchat :)

Bec, Dale & the kids popped in briefly on their way home from the Sunshine Coast recently.  Clay had been napping when they arrivced, so wasn't exactly a social butterfly or excited to see them - oops.  Bec & Bella decided to photo bomb him in a photo LOL

We've had a few catch up swimming lessons due lately - it's amazing to see how much Clay has improved!

Clay LOVES his cubby house that Ma Ma got him for Christmas - he plays in it everytime we go outside.  He also takes great delight in shutting Indy in there if he's silly enough to follow Clay in LOL

Cuzzie's Play Date

Mum and the boys came over this morning for a swim - sooo nice in this ridiciously hot weather!  After our swim, we played in the shade to cool off.  There was lots of squealing and laughing as Cohan zoomed Clay around in his car :)

Jaxson had a go too, but poor Cohan was a bit too big for it LOL

Old McDonald's Farm

Old McDonald's Farm was back at the zoo again this week, so after swimming lessons this morning we went for a visit.  Clay wasn't as keen this visit - not sure if it was because he was tired after swimming or a bit frightened.  He wasn't keen on patting the animals, but was happy to sit and watch them.

Kylie's 40th Birthday

Kylie celebrated her 40th birthday recently so we went to a local hotel for dinner last night.  We hadn't eaten there before and the meals were delicious!  I did take a photo, but apparently Clay has learnt how to delete photos off my phone - not impressed!!

The birthday girl - had to "steal" this pic from fb since Clay also deleted the photos I took of Kylie with her fancy cocktail.

Clay really likes cake ;)

Love this photo of the three of us!

Creative Goals for 2017

A new year means it's time for new creative goals :)

Creative Goals for 2016

Layouts & PL Pages 28/52

Cards & Gift Tags 25/50

OTP, Pocket Letters & Handmade 0/20

DIY Projects 0/5

Unfortunately I didn't meet my creative goals again this year, but happy that I'm getting more scrapping / cardmaking done compared to the year before.  

Creative Goals for 2017

Layouts & PL Pages 0/52

Cards & Gift Tags 0/50

Handmade / DIY Projects  0/10

A few changes to this year's goals - no OTP or pocket letters.  I got a Canon Selphy for Christmas - woo hoo - so hopefully there will be more PL pages done this year.  Also I'm hoping to get to both retreats (March and October) and have more monthly scrap nights at home with freinds as well as Simply Crafty every month.

New Year's Eve 2016

Keeping with tradition, we headed to the beach at Bargara to take a picnic and watch the 8pm family fireworks for NYE.  We set up near our usual spot and enjoyed a delicious picnic, then the kids ran around enjoying the cool breeze.  

When it started to get dark, we got out the glow in the dark stuff we had brought along :)

At 8pm the fireworks started - Clay was a little bit frightened to start with, but settled onto Craig's lap and watched them laughing and pointing them out :)
