An award, a parade, a bridal shower & scrapping...

I got the most wonderful surprise when I picked Ayden up from school today! He got his 2nd award for the year!!!!

He got this one for trying hard with his writing and letter sounds.... We're so proud of our little man!!!!! I am really disappointed though that I missed him being presented with it at their assembly this morning. Normally they let you know when something like that is going to happen so you can attend and take some photos, but they must have forgotten this time around. Luckily though one of the other Mum's took a photo for me when she noticed I wasn't there (I was so grateful!) so at least we'll have a pic to look at!

It's been such a busy week at the school. We had the Book Character Parade on Wednesday. Ayden went as Batman and it was so much fun seeing all the kids arrive in their costumes. Everyone made such a great effort to take part and they all had a ball! Here's my cute little super hero...

Then yesterday we had a surprise bridal shower for Ayden's teacher! There were lots of secret notes and e-mails in the lead up to it and thankfully she never got wind of what was going on... then yesterday at 2pm when she was bringing the kids back from the library she discovered a party at the classroom just for her! Everything was red and white (her wedding colours), lots of yummy food, toilet paper flowers and dress, just about all the mums wore red, and the kids had a ball! It was so much fun to see her reaction! We all put in for a few gifts as well... she was so overwhelmed...a little teary at times... she loved it and it was great to be part of it! Wish I had some photos but I forgot my camera. (How silly was that!?) She's on leave now and gets married next week and we all can't wait to see the photos!

I managed to catch up and have cuppas with two gorgeous friends this week too... Leanne on Wednesday and Mel this morning with two of her little cuties. I just love spending time with these girls... always have a good laugh! Definitely need to do it more often!

I've got a couple of layouts to share this week. I've used a couple of older fave photos of Madi that I just haven't gotten around to scrapping yet... (Thanks to Belinda's & Leeanne's advice you should now be able to click on the images of my layouts to get a larger view! YAY! Thanks girls I've been trying to work out how to do it for AGES!!)

For anyone who may be wondering, gorgeous little Tayla Rose is doing quite well so far which is great news! She's even had a few cuddles with Mum now (which I'm sure must have been so wonderful for Kirsty.) Here's hoping she continues to improve and grow stronger every day!
Well I think that's it from me tonight! Hope everyone has a wonderful Father's Day this weekend! My Mum & Dad are coming to stay for the weekend which will be great! I'm looking forward to it! Ayden's all excited about his Father's Day Stall pressies that he bought for Daddy today too.... which reminds me I've got some wrapping to do!!! Better go!
