3 Birthdays Within a Week!

My baby girl turned 2 last weekend! Wowee time sure has flown by... it feels like only yesterday that we were bringing her home from the hospital but here she is celebrating her 2nd birthday already! We got up early to open her presents since Paul had to head off to work. She was so excited and got right into tearing the paper off to see what was inside! She got a new doll's cradle, a Dora pop up house, clothes, a silver bracelet, plus a few other bits and pieces. Then later that morning Nanna, Grandpa and Uncle Steve arrived with MORE gifts! Two barbies, a barbie dvd, some dress-up shoes, a 3D castle book and a bubble blower! She was a very lucky girl... She thoroughly enjoyed her day!

We then had some wonderful news during the week that Paul's brother John and his wife Leigh had their very first baby...a totally gorgeous little baby boy they've named Noah. We drove up to Brisbane to see them in hospital on Wednesday. He really is adorable!! I did take a pic but haven't checked with them if they mind me posting it here so I'll leave it out for the time being.

Then it was my turn... it was my birthday on Thursday! Paul and the kids totally spoiled me... breakfast in bed, went out to lunch, Paul cooked dinner... plus they gave me some gorgeous new beads for my Pandora bracelet ( a little birdie, camera, hearts and mother & child beads - love them all!), some earrings and chocolates. Ayden also made me a little rainbow 'Mum'... too cute!

(The little tea cup bead in the photo was from my beautiful friend Mel for my birthday too! Love it!) We had a girl's night out on Friday to celebrate. We went to a fantastic Thai restaurant close by and it was so much fun to catch up. The food was so delicious, the company was fabulous! (Thank you again girls for a great night... and those gorgeous pressies too!)Now for a couple of shares... I found this card in my scraproom that i made last year but haven't posted here yet. It was inspired by a card I saw on the Pink Paislee blog a while ago but I have no idea who made it now...

And here are a couple of layouts too. (I've scraplifted myself for the second layout. LOL Makes for a quick page!)

Ok that's it for today! Better go and see what the kids are up too... they've suddenly gone way to quiet... LOL.

Take care!

  3. Happy Birthday to you all. Love the pandora and I am so sorry that I got the bird, hopefully you are able to swap it for something else...Had a fabulous night at Tuk Tuk, still think it is something that we women should do slightly more often, there is nothing like going out with the girls, letting your hair down and just having a good time. I am about to update my blog with some of the photos from Friday night so look out as there is a ripper of you in there LOL
    Nah I could never be that nasty to you chickadee
