This week...

Hope everyone had a great Father's Day on Sunday! My Mum & Dad drove up and spent the day with us. I cooked a BBQ lunch (yes... I actually stood at the BBQ, tongs in hand, cooking chops and sausages without burning them!) and the kids had a ball playing with Grandpa! Paul was actually in the NT working and missed the actual day, but we celebrated when he got home on Tuesday. He'd been away for about 9 days or so and the kids (and myself!) were over the moon to have him home again!Like the wrapping paper? LOL! We made our own wrapping paper this year. The kids absolutely LOVED doing it. I got out some paint and paintbrushes and let them go to town on some pages out of the newspaper. The presents actually looked quite good in the end and the kids were so proud of themselves too.

I received a blog award this week from the lovely Leeanne! (Thanks so much Leeanne - you're such a sweetie...and you know I love visiting your blog too!)
