december daily journal

I love Tuesdays!!!!
That's the day i can stay in my pj's all day if i want to cause the kids get picked up in the morning and dropped home in the afternoon. But, alas i do get dressed cause Tuesdays are the days i go over to Nic's. Sometimes we just chat and sometimes we may do something crafty, it all depends. But it is never boring, especially with Aunty Rae to keep us entertained.
This week we decided to do our December Daily Journals.
Last year we bought all these cute Teresa Collins Christmas stuff and neither of us used them, so we put them to work this year. Better late than never.
I still have to do the cover - but who knows i just may leave them as they are.
so they are ready for me to take a photo journey through December 2009.

Connor's 9th birthday

Last Thursday (the 19th Nov) was Connor's 9th birthday.
I cant believe my baby is 9th, next year and he'll be in double figures!!!
He was driving me crazy on the lead up to his birthday by pronouncing to me several times a day how many days till he turned 9, from the start of October, LOL. It even got down to several days before he was counting down hours, knowing that he was born at 4am and thinking is was quite acceptable to wake at that time.
Well, he lasted an hour and half after 4am.
As per usual he was spoilt rotten with his main pressie an electric nitro car so he can now race with his Dad. He got all the batteries and accessories for his car too. Good thing we thought ahead and put the batteries on charge the night before.

I sent him of to school happy as Larry with 40 mini cupcakes covered in sprinkles.
He couldn't wait to get home and race his nitro car.

As with all birthday traditions in the Sheppard-Morris household Connor got to pick the restaurant. So off we all went to the Alroy for dinner.
All the family was there are well as Joh, Nev and the girls.
Gotta love the Alroy with their great food and atmosphere and brilliant kids playground.
The kids were all so happy running around and playing. We stopped and went inside for dinner where it wasn't quite so hot, then when dinner was finished and we sang happy birthday and ate cake we went back outside for the kids to play before going home.
All Connor wanted to do was build his Lego garage when he got home but it was 9.30pm so we compromised and said he could build a smaller piece and save the garage till Friday after school.

opening pressies

Hunter enjoyed eating the left over birthday cupcakes that Connor brought home from school.

Shanice just wont stand still long enough for me to take a photo

Hunter played for ages on the swings

And this is Hunter's serious face OR is it the "Aunty Kylie would you stop pointing that camera in my face" look

Class #1 - the complementary card class.....

i know it's been ages to I'm not even going to try and back track...... so moving forward.....

a few weeks back i decided i wanted to go a do a few scrapping classes, something that was different and that i didn't have to think to much about. well...... after looking around at some online stores and some local scrappy stores nothing took my fancy, they we either too expensive for what you got or just crap! i know how that sounds, really bitchy, but i didn't want to pay out money to do a class where i could create something better at home.

so i managed to con a few friends into joining me, which really wasn't too hard to do as they all thought it was a TOPS!!! idea, lol. We would create our own little classes at home, getting together once a month with a set kit and create the same project.

Today was our first "class". We wanted to start off easy so cards was on the agenda. We pinched ideas from books and magazines and from each other.

We ate yummy food and chatted about all sorts of stuff and had a great time doing something fun with friends.

Here are a few piccies of our little creations.

Cant wait till next week when we will be doing our Kaiser wooden advent calendar.
