Dedication

Beautiful, delicate, strong and true
this is how I'd describe you..

Always there, in times of need
wiping tears the worlds not seen..

Seeing you smile, knowing your pain
praying to see you happy again..

Knowing your there, you knowing I'm here
your friendship I value, oh so dear..

Don't forget who you are, 
when he makes you crazy
your precious, above him, your a-freaking-mazing!
 
Two beautiful reasons to smile x

Bring Bring, coming through..

Look at that face! One could say my son is thrilled to be able to finally ride his bike, but that would be an understatement. Jiedyn, 7, recieved a bike for Christmas last year. Because it's just me at home I put it together in a few hours but questioned the safety of it knowing my precious boy would be depending on it. After double checking everything I was happy enough to allow him to ride it for the first time yesterday. We wheeled it across the road and on he jumped. Pedalling was a new experience for him but he soon got the hang of it and after a few stops and starts he gained confidence to go faster. So fast in fact that he didnt know how to stop, stacked at the end of the street and knackered himself!! I tried so hard not to laugh but burst out laughing making him laugh too. "Mum, my balls hurt". Hahaha.. "I think you've had enough for today" I said as I picked up his bike and started wheeling it home. Although in a bit of pain Jie loves his new bake and cant wait to ride it again.   

Well Done Jie-Jie! Mama is very proud of you!

Time to totally kick Ass..

So, this years resolution has been to get more active. I could have said, lose weight, but having PCOS makes losing weight difficult for me so just being more active this year is my goal.

25 days in I have a new best friend, a Wii fit board. So far so good!

At around 12am I smashed out 40 minutes of training. 20 minutes of which was fast paced step ups.

I pushed myself to my limits and was elated to be rewarded in sweat!

    On A Night Like This..

    At 12am it was still 33 degrees.
    What do we do in this kind of heat you ask?
    Lay on the grass and look up at that big black blanket in the sky
    and admire God's tapestry of stars of course!

    School holiday fun for next to nothing.

    Here in Australia, when its summer, the days get longer. Day light savings had our sun go down at 8.45pm tonight and the kids and I walked up to the park at the top of our hill to watch the magic happen. But before we did, I planned a night out, just the three of us. What was going to be "dinner by the river" soon turned into "slushy at our wedding location". Here are some snaps of our not-so-night..

    Sweet conversations between slurps.

    Apparently the green one was the best!

    Some poses for our blog.

    & lastly, some shots to show how much Nevaeh looks up to Jiedyn.

    The sunset was so beautiful too.
    I think I have seriously worn myself out today. This year, I aim to be an active Mum. One day down - 363 days to go!

    School Holiday Fun with Friends

     With our energy saving power board set to 2 hours, the boys were given a chance to have some fun with the Wii. They enjoyed playing tennis, golf and boxing before being interupted while playing bowling.

    The boys took it well and found something else to do rather quickly. Jie recieved a paper aeroplane kit for Christmas this year and having two mates to share it with turned it into a lot of fun!
     Jacob, Toby and Jie, cut, folded, glued, taped and decorated each of their paper planes with stickers. They tested, unfolded, refolded, made them unique until they were all happy with them.

    They launched them from one end of the hallway and flew them down into Jiedyn's room. Testing each one for speed and distance.

    Then they took the fun outside where the wind could lift the planes higher.
    Jacob was the overall winner in speed.

    Toby's went the furtherest.

    A great day full of old fashioned fun all thanks to our nifty new energy saving power board.

    And two creative friends of course!
