mums day 09

we had the most wonderful mothers day picnic planned for yesterday but it all went pear shaped with the rain!!! Oh well.......... we changed our plans and headed to T2 in Hornsby for a Mothers Day high tea. It was so lovely. The kids got to experience it for the first time and sip their hot chocolates and sample some of the yummy treats that were in front of them.
It was a most civilised luncheon :)
Hunter made everyones day by being the gift giver and handing out all the presents after he made sure the wrapping tasted good. And between me and my two kids we all fought over who was going to hold him next and give him big kisses and cuddles.

My two special kidlets bought me a new pandora charm each - a treasure chest and a sun & moon charm. They are very stunning. Shanice decided this year that the mothers day stall at school is just crap and she didn't want to waste money there but Connor did and got me a lovely kitchen towel set with a picture frame and soap. I can just picture his thought process as to why he chose that present - God love him!
Hunter was very clever and bought his favourite aunty a chocolate brown throw blanket. Which is exactly what i was asking for. More like dropping hundred of hints as to how much i love Mandy's.
Mum was spoilt too. hunter gave his nan a very cute note pad and 2 gorgeous candle holders. And we gave mum a basket full of card making goodness as well as a cute pillow and mum plaque.

High tea wouldn't be complete without a trip into the shop to purchase some new tea. I got some yummy creme brule tea and turkish apple tea. YUM!!!!
And while in hornsby we must got to Smiggle and ooohhh and arrghhh over all the goodies in there as well as spend a small fortune.

And here is a little quote specially for my mum.......

On Saturday we had Joh & Nev and their kids and Nic and her 2 kids over for a BBQ. We had a great afternoon chatting and laughing away.
The boys played out the front with the nitro cars and us girls sat around and scrapped. What a great way to spend a great afternoon.
Here are the two layouts that i did
