Wet weather...

Hmmmmmmm I know we need the rain but geez...I hate wet weather - especially with an energetic toddler. We prefer to go to the park or play in the backyard! At least we had mother's group this morning and she ran riot inside with her favourite partner in crime a gorgeous boy called Nate. They get pretty wild together but have a ball! Also oooohhhed and ahhhhhhhed over a precious new bub called Violet...such a pretty name for such a sweet lil girl!**cluck, cluck**

Some more LOs to share...

This one is for SCRAPTIVATE.... using the delish new Making Memories pps. They are having a HUGE stocktake sale with 20% off I suggest you get on into the shop...such an inspirational store, overflowing with wonderful designs and products!!!!

I caught up with some of the gorgeous girls from the SM forum last Friday for a crop last Friday as Scraptivate and of course I kinda just ate and talked all night but I did get the best part of this LO done for Scraploot challenge # 5 - colour combo of orange, blue, white, black and pink!

I was really happy with the LO except for the paint...bit dark maybe? bit naff? LOL!
And this one was just for me...
The I've had the PP for AGES just waiting for the right photos... Miss P scrapping away!

And a quick pic of Miss P on her bike heading off to the park for a play.... Very colour co ordinated there!!LOL! A least she is a little more willing to look at the camera these days!

We are currently looking for a 3 year old kindy placing for Poppy next year as the school she will going to only starts at 4 year old kindy. Because 3 year old kindy is not subsidised by the govt. it seems to cost an arm and a leg for two mornings a week!! Hmmm...hopefully we'll find something in the next couple of weeks!

I have my 19 week scan on Thursday...very excited to see the bub again! He/she is very active and I have been feeling those little kicks for a couple of weeks now! Can't believe I am nearly half way!
