Tonights Special.

The boys ordered in tonight, pizza and movies.
While us ladies went out..

Mums are always prepared, visiting the book shop before hand.

We ordered our drinkies, a slushy for Miss 3 and a Mascato for me!

And embraced the camera..

Dinner was next and would you believe she ordered fish and chips? Out of everything on the menu.. Bloody Fish 'n Chips. But I must admit, she did eat it with her knife and fork.

For dessert she ordered the ice-cream with topping and sprinkles. She tasted my sticky date pudding with caramel sauce and cream but screwed her face up. Like the little lady that she is, she picked up her napkin and quite elegantly wiped her mouth with it. I couldn't help but smile then realized my baby has indeed gone..

I told her that there was a beautiful princess having dessert in the dinning room tonight. She looked at me excited and said "Where mummy?" I told her to lick the ice-cream off her spoon and she'll see her.. It was tonights special!

Our Wedding Album

Click the pic to enlarge it 
For the past three days I have been working on our very own wedding album.

This friend and fellow blogger showed me this great site to make photo books and now I'm hooked!

I thought it would be a great gift to give to the grandparents and great grandparents who couldn't be there.

For three days I have been editing photo's, creating layouts and thinking of headings, subheadings and text to go with each page.

I'm lovin' it..

My First Step Up Class

On Friday I took my first step-up's class which looks something like this..
I did with two of my friends I Gym with and they were really good at it. Because it was an advance class it was a little hard to keep up with them in the second half of the workout, so I decided to just do it on the floor without the step in some of the harder parts. I never gave up.. I was so proud of myself as that morning I think I thought of every possible excuse not to go, but I defeated the voice in my head and did it. I'm so glad I did.. I walked out sweating and red faced, it was a lot of fun and worth it..

Overall it was a positive experience and I'd highly recommend you to give it a go!!
Go on, I dare you.

Pizza Hut with Uncle Al

Last night I promised Jie I'd take him somewhere he'd never been before. He said excitedly "Like China?" I shook my head, "Like Asia?" I shook my head again "Just go to sleep, you'll see in the morning." 

 We get into Ballarat today and Jie turns to me and asks "Do people here speak our language?" Bahahahaha! After explaining we were in Ballarat he saw his Uncle Al and said "It never gets this cold in Australia!"

We escaped the cold with some shopping where the kids could each pick out two items. Jie picked a warm but stylish jacket and a ninja skivy while Nevaeh (being a typical girl) choose three very girly jumpers. I must say, my children have great taste..

Just before 12pm we set off up Bakery Hill to Pizza Hut. The rest of the day was captured..














My kids do love they're Uncle Al.. 
It was a fabulous day minus the icy weather.

Earthquake Shake.

Tonight, while on the phone to my Dad I felt my very first earthquake shake.

To prove we're all okay here are a few asleepy snaps!







With all the earthquake status posts rolling in, saying where it was felt, all I wanted to sing was "I've been everywhere man..." Ettalong, Dandenong, Woodenbong, Ballarat, Canberra, Milperra, Unanderra, Captains Flat, Cloncurry, River Murray, Kurri Kurri, Girraween, Terrigal, Stockinbingal, Collaroy, Narrabeen, Bendigo, Dorrigo, Bangalow, Indooroopilly, Kirribilli, Yeerongpilly, Wollondilly..


No one was hurt and no damage was done. The measurements and full details for any earthquake professionals can be found here..

All the drama calls for a milkshake!

A Righteous Performance..

Look at that confidence!


My first Bacchus Marsh Primary School Assembly. 

The National Anthem.
A few rewards.
A few tunes by the preppies.
A few more awards.
And proud house chant.
 It was all kinds of wonderful.

38- Make Lasagna.

I did it! I made lasagna!

Okay so not the most perfect lasagna I admit, but it smelt like lasagna and tasted like lasagna!! It took me over an hour to make as I really wanted to perfect it for my three judges..

Comment's from the Judges were:

Nevaeh:
"Mmmm, Yum!"

Jiedyn:
"I only like the crunchy bits.."

Matt:
"Where's the rest?"

I'm really quite happy with how it turned out and can now, very proudly, tick it off my bucket list!

(Note to self: Dont use a round tray next time)

You Bring Color To My Life.

I was listening to a few songs this morning while the rest of the house were off busy doing other things. One of the songs in my rather oldish collection was a song by B*Witched. Okay I admit it, I still have they're whole album with I brought when I was 12. But that's not the point.. The song I was listening to was called, Like a Rose and while I was in my own little world sitting on the couch my little bee come to sit on my lap, (which she has seemed to have claimed this past week since being sick) My mind wondered off thinking of how fast she has grown is such a small amount of time.. 

From a small bee..

To this unique, beautiful girl..

Lord I love her!

Timberrr..

Today Jiedyn went back to school after having a long weekend off. I quite enjoyed having him home the last few days and so too did Nevaeh. Now bored and frustrated without anyone to chase her up and down the hallway or take cars from, Nevaeh started pulling out the Video's and building them as if they were blocks. It didn't bother me but instead gave me an idea..Jenga TimberrrJenga It wasn't long before Nevaeh was laughing and wanting to rebuild again. Who would have thought that these rudimentary timber blocks could have us laughing {and snorting} our day away?!
