Going for gold!!

WOW!!! Im doing really well with my no buy challenge. I have done another 4 LOs and 2 cards! Only problem with the cards is that they dont get to go into my card box!! Hopefully one day I will be able to make cards and not have any birthdays or anything that I need to use them for!! LOL.

I did buy some scrapping stuff last night......HOWEVER, it was to make gifts for 2 people so it doesnt count.......right????

Here is a LO I did last is Pennys (at SW) sketch challenge. Im quite pleased with how it turned out. Ive done another two LOs using the same sketch. Oh, cant really see it very well....
It ways....MWAH and there is hidden journalling on the tag. Cam loves giving Isla heaps of kisses and alway says...."More" (MWAH!) Gosh, he can be so cute sometimes!
Got three, count them....THREE.... cyber crops this weekend!! One of them involves a game of bingo and I also have a wedding to go look at. Trina (Lachies kindy teacher) is getting married. Im so excited but Im gonna be one very busy chickie! So will say toodle pip for now and get on with my day!
Take care

Gosh, has it been a week already since I last posted?? I cant believe how quickly time is going!! Ok, so I got tagged again....but since I already did the 6th photo in the 6th folder, this time I think I might do......the 10th photo in the 10th folder....hmmmmm, lets see where this takes us?.....Phew!! Thank goodness for that!! Its not a totally humiliating photo!! This is us waiting at LAX for our flight home in July 2008. Lachie is incredibly sunburnt from a day in the pool (while I was packing our bags) with NO SUNCREAM ON!! I just didnt even think about it because I had a list in my mind of everything I had to do and obviously Ray didnt think about it either!! Dont remember where Cam was, he wasnt with me and he wasnt swimming so didnt get burnt. See Isla tucked away in my belly there!! (There you go of our trip photos!!!!! LOL)
Heaps happening at the moment but not really anything terribly exciting.
Lachie started back at his triathlons last Monday and really enjoyed it this year. He has been doing them for the last two summers (since he just turned three) but this time he got into it. He was so cute.....he had finished and was standing in line to get his certificate, yoghurt, banana and juice and he says to me "Mummy, did you see me? I went really fast ay" AAAWWW Gorgeous!!
On Tuesday was Poppa Jac's first birthday. Happy birthday, little man! We had been to his party at the park on the Sunday so no celebrations that day. It would also have been Nana's 92nd birthday and it was the anniversary of the day I found out I was preggy with Isla!! Gosh, what a day!
On the Wednesday, Lachie had his first cricket training session. I didnt go, (cant remember why....oh I know....Mum and Dad were coming round for roast lamb for dinner and cricket was at 5.30 so I needed to stay and cook tea!) but Ray got Mum to take some photos and they didnt turn out too bad.....Oh, they must be still on my camera...havent downloaded them yet. Well, next time I will put the cricket photos on. He didnt have triathlon this week cos it was raining but he is off to cricket tomorrow and Ray is working, so, looks like Cam and Isla are doing to their first cricket training too!!! Will take my big lens and get some real closeup photos.
Black Friday saw Ray and I going out for dinner WITHOUT children!! What a treat!! We went to Pompeii Pizza for Kates 40th. was so scrummy! Expensive (and couldnt afford to go there again in a hurry) but scrummy!!!
Valentines Day is a no-go-zone in our house. I sound like such a killjoy jut it is such a waste of money!! I love Ray and he loves me so why do we need to prove that we love each other on that particular day, when we can prove it any other day!?? Bah, humbug ay!
Then yesterday (16th) was my daddys birthday! Happy Birthday to you, Pa! The big "Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when Im" 64.WOW!! I cant believe it!! It sounds quite old yet he seems so young!
Lachie is getting better at going to school. He only asked me 6 times this morning why I had to leave him at school and go home! He is doing REALLY well with his reading and it seems like he has been at it for more than only one week! Im so proud of him!
And the kindy teachers said to me today that Cam could start kindy in the middle of March. I told them I dont mind waiting till after the school holidays (after Anzac Day) cos I cant really see the point in him going for a few weeks then having a few weeks off. Then again, it could be the end of the term he might need a break. He is such a little weenie...he is far too little to go to kindy!!
Isla is four months old today and today she giggled!!! She is such a gorgeous wee princess, we all just love her sooooo much!!
I hope I still say that when she comes home at 16 and tells me she is just happened to one of my high school friends!!!! A grandmother at 36!!!! Can you believe it!!?? Oh dear oh dear....what is this world coming to???
Scrapping wise, Im doing a bit lately. Lots of card making, but they dont get to stay in my box very long before they are needed!!! :-( Have done 15 of my 30 UYS and am working on another two!! YAY!!!
Well, my friends. It is way past my bed time...Cam and Isla are both sick (Isla chest cough and Cam, I think might have tonsillitis? Might have to get to Drs tomorrow) and although Isla is sleeping fine, Cam is quite unsettled. Having said that, the past few nights, once Im asleep there is no waking me! Sleeping like a baby, as it were!! LOL
Night night my friends and thanks for stopping by!

Tag - you're it!!

Ive been photo tagged. The idea is that you go to your sixth photo album on your computer and choose the sixth photo. Share the photo in your blog and tell a little story about it then tag 6 of your blogger friends and ask them to do the same.

So my sixth photo is this one: We were around at mums house back in 2007 and Lachie was having fun playing outside with Charlotte the dog. Now I am supposed to tag 6 friends but I dont have 6 other blogger friends that havent already been tagged so I will just have to do the couple that I can think of....Amy and Sandra.

Happy 7th wedding anniversary my darling Ray. Yep, its that time again and too boot....Our big boy started school today!!! I couldnt have been more proud of him!! But I really cant believe how quickly the last 5 years have passed!!!He looks so handsome in his school uniform, with his Lightening McQueen backpack on his back and his little camoflage lunchbox/chilly bag thingy. Here, let me show you.....

Doesnt he just look TOO little to be going to big school??!! He called into kindy on the way home to show the teachers how handsome he looked in his school uniform and they informed me it wont be too long before Cam starts at afternoon kindy!! (between 6 and 8 weeks) Gosh, what will I do with myself when I only have Isla at home for three afternoons a week and the boys gone?? Might actually get some scrapping done??!! Or it could be nice girly time!!

Yesterday we had his "Going to school" birthday party. It was so much fun. We hired a bouncy castle, played "Pass the parcel" (and yes, although every child got a prize - there was a WINNER!!) and we had a Lightening McQueen pinata. That was HILARIOUS!! Should have seen the kiddies with it. But boy can those little kids whack a stick round!! Even blindfolded!! Lachie got completely spoilt and got some REALLY cool gifts....the skateboard,Ben 10 and Hot Wheels were definately the winners on the day!

And the countdown is on till Scrap Camp....only 8 weeks to go and I have to have done my 21 LOs to use my stash by then!! I have made two cards this weekend but not done any LOs. I am all inspired at the moment to do a First day of School one. Wonder how long that will last??LOL
Righto, better get going to bed...its after midnight and I got to go to the horrible dentist tomorrow and get him to sort out my sore tooth. Its been sore for ages....since before we went to the States but Ive been putting it off until now...when it feels like my jaw is on fire and I cant sleep!! Yikes...wonder how much he will charge? Oh man, I dont even want to think about it!!!!
Good night......
