Eye Spy With My Little Eye ....

We went to Wollongong last Saturday and on our drive there we decided to play eye spy.

It was Aaron's turn so he said
"Eye spy with my little eye, something beginning with L"
We all had a turn at trying to guess what it was until we needed a clue so Aaron said to Ashleigh (as she was sucking a Chuppa Chup at the time) "it's in your mouth" (the answer was lolly)
So Ashleigh screams out, all excited that she had the right answer

Aaron and I laughed!!

I got some good news in the mail today.
A couple of weeks ago we went in to Parramatta to do some shopping and whilst we were there we got a parking ticket.
Me being a genius at getting out of things I wrote a letter with some sob story and I got a response in the mail today saying that they will cancel the ticket "due to the circumstances".
I was so happy. That saves us $80.

That's it for now. It's the second last day before school goes back and Aaron's at work so I'm pretty happy about life!

Here Comes Peter Cottontail

The girls woke up very excited this morning.
The easter bunny had hid their easter eggs all over the house.
It kept them busy most of the morning searching for their eggs.
They were still finding them at lunchtime!

We had our next door neighbours over yesterday for dinner.
They brought over a very special cake especially for easter.
Bec had spent the entire day making it!
The girls LOVED it!!

And Lauren just adores her easter bunny that Nanny and Poppy gave her for easter.
Thanks Nanny and Poppy!

Well, that brings yet another easter to a close. Way too much chocolate again (is there such a thing as TOO MUCH chocolate? hmmmmm).

And Ashleigh learnt a lot about the crucifixion of Christ and the sacrifice He made for us this easter which was great!

Happy Easter!!

Ashleigh had her Easter bonnet parade today.
It's the last time she gets to participate - thankfully!!!

I only remembered at about 8pm last night that we hadn't made her a bonnet yet.
So I had to raid my cupboards .... luckily I had a bit of cardboard and some bits and pieces lying around.

This is what we came up with. Not too bad for last minute I reckon!

And, Lauren spent the morning lying down with the cat. She just loves Thomas .....

Well that's about it for now.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!!

I had a school reunion on the weekend.
Just my close friends - not the whole grade!
We had such a good time catching up.
It's amazing that after all these years, everybody looks the same,
sound the same and even have the same traits as they did before!
It felt like we'd never left school - like we were eating our lunch in the school yard in between periods ready to go off to class.
Except this time we had kids, and husbands and didn't have to do exams!!!

I have some very fond memories of my school days.
I was very lucky to have found such a great group of friends who never pressured me into anything I didn't want to do and who were a good example.
It's amazing to think it's been 16 years since I'd seen most of them!!

Isn't it funny, I can remember when 16 years was a long time - longer than I'd been alive.
Now I'm saying it's been 16 years since I'd seen these people!
Wow, I feel old!

Anyway, here are some photos ....

This is a photo Rachel Trainor (Rachel Catt) who was my dearest and closest friend at school with her yougest son Harrison. She hasn't changed a bit. She's still as loving and nurturing as always. And Vanessa Jull another dear friend who hasn't changed a bit either with her daughter Eva!

Here is a photo of ALL the kids!! They had such a great time playing together. They all got along really well.

And here is a photo of all the girls: Jodie Hazelwood with her daughter Darcey, Lauren down the bottom, Me, Natasha Yeend, Vaness Jull with her daughter Eva, Rachel Trainor and Sally.
