Mermaid Mackenzi

There once was a beautiful mermaid. She used to swim with the fish. She ate seaweed pies. She loved to dance in the rolling waves. She was an amazing mermaid princess.

More Photo Editing

Kenzi made a heart shaped record bowl from a record Mumma gave her. She then photoedited it!
I have no words.

Bye bye Dave- I'll miss you!
My house is whistle clean underneath, kitchen floorboards sanded & look

Christmas is coming too fast & need to start prezzies or there will be 15 IOWEU's

Our lovely Anon, AKA Rohan, has been inducted into the Ronald McDonald House Charities Hall of Fame. WHOOOOOOOT, you go girl!

I found out via Britt's blog, who is off gallivanting around New York at the moment. Take a peek here.

The Here and Now

I've written a mega-long post but the photos were taking a mega-long time to upload so I've opted for the short and sweet until next time! Flowers for a lovely lady who cooked us a wonderful dinner in her lovely home last Saturday (flowers stolen from the garden of the house we're house-sitting, the warm weather means everything in the garden is bursting open and it's seriously beautiful). And then my 9 week old son in a onesie for a 1 year old. Petit bateau make their clothes on the small side but this is ridiculous! Although the child health nurse weighed him the other day (6.48 at 8 weeks) and he's in the 97th percentile for his age. I think my breasts may be producing pure cream rather than milk!


no words can explain the sheer joy my kidlets share when they are digging. i guess our landscaping will have to wait...although i could give them the plans....nothing wrong with child labor? although i do think a plan would take the joy away.

Bling Bling

I know a girl who likes lots of colour. She doesn't live by the 'less is more' motto. In fact everything must be as blingy as blingy. For example, one of our lessons today was photo editing on one of those free online programs.......I think it is beautiful....I also think it looks like cupid threw up, right after Frosty the snowman exploded! Oh, and the bow...I have no words!
Lucky The Pobjie Academy for young ladies can laugh out loud at things...especially after we read the blog posts her mummy writes.

No More Babies Please

You all know that I love babies. I do, I adore them.....but really 12 handmade Christmas gifts is about my limit I think. What with my kidlets, all your kidlets and our God children...12. A lot of sewing ahead and more felt to be bought and cut, but man they look good! No peeking until Christmas though. (I apologise now for the abbreviations to names....some are ever so long and will not fit on my secret project...and then there are those that are pretty long, but will not be shortened - they have to be squished!)

Nothing Happening Here

Hmmmm..I think because I have not had a baby, broken any ribs, moved to a country far away from where I was living. I am also not saving lives or dancing with cute country boys. Maybe, just maybe I need to be doing my part on this side of the blogging highway. I promise to try and give you some good posts so that you have something new to look at.

Pretty hey. Yellow and white makes me smile. Roses and vases make me smile. Fresh smelling bathrooms and spring sunshine makes me smile. I am a happy, happy girl.
(Rose from Raemor's beautiful garden)

Our Great Adventure

I shot one photo and then my batteries died.
Well done Miss Lawyer/Art person. You did good!

Toot-Toot CHugga-Chugga Big Not-Red Car

We bought a car. Actually, Mum, Dad and Kati bought a car for us. We trusted them with our precious dosh and they bought a car that we hadn't even seen. Actually, we haven't paid them back yet. I'm thinking that if they don't make it to New Zealand then we get an extra cut of the inheritance. Oh yeah.
PS This post is mostly for Andrew who is dying to see our car. My snorky habits are rubbing off on him!
