Mother's Day 2010

I had a fantastic Mother's Day...... what more could i ask for with such gorgeous weather outside and 2 even more gorgeous kids.
I got woken, not too early, by my cherubs eagerly excited to open the presents that they had chosen themselves. Connor gave some soap that he chose special at the mothers day stall and shanice had taken Nan out shopping to get a very beautiful tea cup to add to my collection from herself and Connor. There was so much thought and love gone into what they chose that it makes the moment and my presents even more special.
The kids and I headed to Fagan Park for morning tea/lunch with mum, mandy and hunter. We love it there. But i have never, ever seem it so incredibly busy. The kids played in the park with Hunter, rod their scooters, played DS, ate lots of yummy nibbles and then after lunch we went for the traditional walk to the duck pond and windmill.
It really was a beautiful day.
We came home with enough time to duck to the shops to get a new printer as mine died during the week and some new jeans.
We did all this then raced home to quickly get changed and head out for dinner with anthony's family. We went to King Henry's court at penrith, although the food is ok the atmosphere is so quaint.

Welcome Wall

Sunday was a pretty huge day for the Wright family.....
We all headed into Darling Harbour to watch the ceremony for the Welcome Wall at the National Maritime Museum. For mums 60th birthday a group of her close friends bought her and dad a very special present - their names on the Welcome Wall.
Here is a link to all the info - Welcome Wall
i tried to explain why the day was so important to me to the kids and Anthony but i managed to blurt out was some complete waffle. but i did say i ranked it up there with our wedding and birth of our kids.
As it turned out it was a glorious day. We enjoyed the ceremony at a small distance because sitting in the full sun was too hot, plus it gave the kids room to run around. We then headed over to the Kings Street wharf for a lovely lunch over looking the harbour.
It was such a fantastic day and one that i will hold very dear

Every May at the kids school they hold a Grandparents day. The kids love and all the Grandparents really look forward to it.
So yesterday was GPD, as Connor likes to refer to it as. Mum and Mandy went along as well as Pat & Michael. So i had the pleasure of babysitting my gorgeous nephew. And i also offered to have Zoey as well so Britney's Nan could go along too.

So we had a great morning at home playing games and doing all fun stuff like blowing bubbles and chasing's and building stuff. It's been so long since I've done all that with my kids.
Zoey asked for a sprinkle sandwich for lunch and sat on the lounge to eat, but Hunter had to sit right next to her and share! It was too cute not to bring out the camera.

Some scrapping

So the past week has see me doing a little bit of scrapping.... and I've also been teaching myself to crochet.
I really loved the Kaiser Gypsy Sisters range, but when i was working with it i found it quite tricky to match photos as it really is quite pink, but i still lub it!

Just 2 more samples that i did using one of the challenge kits for the May Scrap Girls retreat. I seem to be getting through my retreat photos and i love this size too.
