Here are some photos of Lauren - she used to refuse to wear hats before but now she puts them on voluntarily. Same with shoes - we could never get her to wear them and now she begs us to put them on her all the time! Go figure! Everything is done at her own pace that's for sure!

Ashleigh goes on her very first excursion tomorrow to Fairfield City Farm. She's really looking forward to it - I think she's looking forward to the bus trip more than anything!
It's a day of firsts tomorrow - I've got my very first candle party and I'm really looking forward to it! I'm so pumped! I'll let you all know how it goes!
I'm going to a scrapbooking night tomorrow with the church gals and although I'm not scrapbooking much anymore I'm not going to miss out on the opportunity of having free reign of Fantasia! I love that shop and the owner has lent it to us for the night. I'm going to get some photos printed tomorrow so I have something to work with. Michelle's also going to be giving us a lesson on the colour wheel and how to decorate your home which should be good!
Lauren is doing well. She's on anti-biotics again and her coughing fits have pretty much stopped which is good. She is such a character I tell ya. She makes me laugh all the time! Some of the things she does it's hilarious! Tonight Ashleigh was getting in trouble for not eating her dinner and Lauren starts pointing her finger at Ash and babbling some nonsense as if she was telling her off also. I have put on some photos of Lauren doing her cross-eyed face! She's hilarious - she'll be trying to get your attention and if you don't look at her she'll start going cross-eyed (even if you're not looking at her) until you notice what she's doing!
Hope you all have a great week!

Today was the first day Ashleigh wore her winter uniform! I think it's a gorgeous uniform - very smart! There has been a delay in getting the winter uniforms but we finally got them! Ashleigh loves it too which is good! What do you all think? Does she look cute or what?!

Today I was busy with Ashleigh's Open Day at school. I went in and did a tour of her classroom and checked out all the hard work she has been doing this year and sat and had lunch with her which she absolutely loved!
I have two parties to do next week which I'm really excited about and then I have another one the week after that and another the week after that. I am slowly getting more and more parties which is great!
I'm loving this cooler weather. It's nice to snuggle up at night and dress warmly. Lauren is still sick though - really bad cough that just isn't going away! I can't believe how sick she's been lately, poor thing!
I got this month's Better Homes and Gardens and am going to try to crochet an afghan rug. It's worth a shot! I've always wanted to learn how to crochet - now that I'm another year older I'd better start to learn how to do these things so I won't be a bored old granny! hehehe!
Anyway, I'm off to bed now! Goodnight!

Tomorrow I turn 31! How old do I feel!! Turning 30 was alright - it was kinda fun, I felt likeI was finally an adult but 31 seems so much older! Oh well, you're only as old as you feel right!?!?
Anyway, I'd better run. Got lots to do today! I'll leave you with a photo of Lauren and her baby cousin Jake!

I tell you, I'm loving the candles! They smell fantastic and they make the house so cosy!
I have attached some photos of the girls - the ones Sally took for me. We're going to take some more of the girls later in the day so that the sun isn't shining in their eyes. Hope you like them.

Unfortunately Lauren is sick AGAIN! She can't take a trick poor kid! To be honest I don't think she ever really got over her last cold. She has been up all through the night. One night I woke up to her crying in her cot and when I went in to get her she was covered in vomit! It was a long night let me tell you. Any prayers you can offer her are greatly appreciated!
Aaron is away again. He is on the Gold Coast this time. He drives up to Brisbane this afternoon and will be home tomorrow afternoon. It will be good to have him home. Poor Ashleigh keeps crying saying she misses him. This morning she was on the trampoline with Lauren and I heard her crying out "Daddy ..... Daddy". When I went out there I realised she was talking to an aeroplane flying in the sky. I keep telling her that Daddy has gone on an aeroplane.
I don't really have any photos this time. I haven't had time to take any. As soon as I get some I'll put them in!

A couple of days ago we were sitting down watching tv and that ad came on tv where the little girl is in the car with her Mum and she says "he's a bloody idiot" - you all know the one I'm talking about! Anyway, Ashleigh turned to me with her mouth open wide and said "she said a bad word Mummy!", to which I replied, "yes she did, she's naughty". Ashleigh then said "yeah, you're not allowed to say idiot!". I burst out laughing, Ashleigh had no idea what was so funny!
What a classic!
Aaron flies back home today ... yippee! He had to stay an extra day because they needed him. It'll be good to have him home!

Well, we managed to survive our first round of school holidays! We've had a great couple of weeks but I must say it'll be good to get back into a routine! I've got a pretty busy week this week and for the next few weeks actually so it is good Ashleigh will be back at school.
Aaron is working hard in Brisbane! He had a very early morning this morning and has been working hard all day. Ashleigh loved being able to sleep in our bed last night while Aaron's away! I can't believe how much she talks in her sleep - sheesh!
Latest News ... I have become a consultant for Salt City Candles (you can click on the link to the right to have a look). Actually, I don't "officially" become a consultant until Wednesday this week when I get the "hand-over" and formal training. I am really excited about this new venture and hope that it will be a success!
I have been painting a lot lately. I really enjoy painting. I have given up on the scrapbooking thing - it was good while it lasted but not something I can see myself doing for years - it's too expensive plus I just don't seem to get the time. Here are some photos of my paintings.
This one is for Aunty Mandy! Ashleigh loves the little dolls you bought for her and puts them on her bed every morning!
