More buckets anyone??

Word of mouth and your products is the best advertising.

After making this bag - a friend of my friend noticed, commented, liked, emailed and purchased.

I wish sales were always this easy.

Here is a little peek of the finished product.

Happy Birthday to my Adrian  - a big 10 this month - Double Digits

A tradition that we have started for our family is a weekend away with just dad and mum for your 10th Birthday. Being a large family it's great to have some quality time with just one child. Also included is a trip on a plane. Adrian chose to go to Brisbane.

We had a great time.

A big comfy bed

We visited the Queensland Museum on Southbank -

An old taxi

We also spent plenty of time eating, swimming, relaxing in the spa, we also did a bit of birthday $$ shopping.

As we were actually away on Adrians birthday we had a family dinner and cake when we returned. Another tradition for us is a cake of your choice. Here is Adrians

Club Penguin Orange Puffle
 I'd love to hear if your family has any birthday traditions.

We came across this Welcome Home Parade for returning soldiers

My Baby is now 2

A big Happy Birthday to my baby boy Harry - he was the big 2 yesterday.


As the older children are off to school, we usually have presents in the morning after breaky and everyone is dressed and ready.
Harry's favourite gift was a .............

..... guitar. He has not stopped playing it. And would rather play than eat. He should get hungry soon :)

After the preschool and school pick up we headed to the park for some afternoon tea and a play. This park also has Australian Animals to look at. Harry loves it - wombats, wallabies, koalas and plenty of birds.

We finished the day off with a simple family dinner of baked bean chilli, salsa, rice and corn chips. Then it was cake time.

Harry is a fan of In the Night Garden and especially Iggle Piggle. I think he was too tired by the end of the day and wasn't keen for cake. :( Don't tell anyone but I'll offer him some for lunch today.
