Mother's Day Afternoon Tea...

I've just spent a lovely afternoon at school with Ayden is his classroom...

All the Mum's were invited to attend a special Mother's Day Afternoon Tea today and we were treated to some beautiful Mother's Day songs (Ayden had been practicing the songs at home over the past week or two... very cute!), then we all headed over to the tables to draw a picture together... We were then served some special Mother's Day chocolate biscuits that the kids had made at school along with a nice hot cuppa. I must say the bikkies were yummo!

All the kids had also written a description of their Mum's which were hung around the room (without their names attached) and we had to try and guess which one was us. After a bit of searching I finally found mine....apparently I have brown hair (?), green eyes, wear pj's with love hearts & diamonds (?), give him Weetbix out of the box for breakfast, make him transformers and pictures, I am beautiful and he loves me very much! LOL! So sweet and funny! The brown hair threw me when I first started reading it, and the pj's since I don't own any with love hearts and diamonds on them.... but the Weetbix and transformers gave it away!

We then all sat down together and were presented with a beautiful card that each child had made for their Mums. Here's mine... I LOVE it!

Before we knew the bell was ringing and it was time for home. A big thank you to Ms Taylor and the rest of the staff who organised this lovely day... it was so much fun!

I took the kids up to stay with Mum & Dad over the long weekend. It was great just to kick back and relax and the boys got to catch up with their cousins too. Madi has really become a Grandpa's girl! Until recently she just wasn't sure about Grandpa and usually liked to keep her distance but now she runs up to him for cuddles all the time! She certainly kept him busy this last weekend with toys and books and things... and he loved it of course!

We've all starting to come down with colds at the moment. I guess it is that time of year after all, but it still makes life a little more frustrating. I'm hoping they don't hang around for long...

That's about it from me, but before I go here are a couple of layouts that are in the latest issue of Scrapbooking Memories...
I got my copy in the letter box today, so I know what I'll be doing tonight...curling up on the couch in my pj's with a hot cuppa in one hand and my magazine in the other!
