The local council has declared a 'wet weekend' for this weekend as well since our local dam is overflowing due to all the recent rains... so we'll be washing the car (it sooooo needs it) and anything else we can think of today. They're also turning the showers back on at the Gold Coast beaches too - fantastic! Nothing worse than having to get in the car covered with sand!
We're counting down now to Ayden's very first day of school on Tuesday! He's very excited! We've got everything organised... his uniform, shoes, new lunch box and school bag, book pack ordered and sent to the school.... so we're just waiting for the day now! I can't believe my little man is heading off to Prep... he's growing up too fast!
Madi's been doing the funniest little things lately... If she spots her shoes anywhere she has to bring me one so I can put it on her - and she only wants ONE on! Then she goes about her business - wearing only that one shoe! Just wanders around all over the house like it's completely normal! Then the other day she found two pairs of Riley's Thomas undies and decided they would look fabulous over the top of her shorts and brought them to me to put on her... It looked so cute! (I can't believe I didn't take a photo... I was in the middle of an ironing marathon.) She wandered around for hours wearing them until I took them off her again. It really is so much fun watching her discover new things and seeing her personality shining through... she's so gorgeous.
I've been a bit slack on the scrapping front this week, so I thought I'd share a few things I made as Christmas gifts for family at the end of last year. There were these little mini-albums I made inspired by the classes at Kim Archer's site:
I also made these little stockings for our tree. (There were 3 stocking designs in Kim's class which I made but since I needed two more different stockings I came up with these holly and heart designs...)Another one of Kim's classes... I made this for my niece Taylah-Jaide... I filled it with hair bands and jewellery and things...
I made a few other things too from Kim's classes - she really did come up with so many gorgeous ideas! It really got my creative juices flowing.... (If you didn't do her Christmas Spectacular classes you really should check them out this year! I will be...)
So while I was in my creative mood I decided to handstich this felt stocking for Madi. The boys both have their own personalised stockings (about 60cm long) and I just couldn't find another nice one for Madison. I ended up making this...
Paul laughed at me when I said I was going to make one but I think it turned out alright! lol
That'll do for now... this has turned into a mammoth post!! Thanks for hanging in there if you're still reading this! Enjoy the rest of your long weekend...
