Naughty me!

LOL, I said I would post more regularily, and it has almost been a month.

I am back at work 3 days a week now, and it has taken me a couple of weeks to get into a routine. And now I am sick, but on the mend with the help of some antibiotics.

The kids are doing really well in child care. Well, Ciara is thriving. Aodhan loves going and playing with his friends, he just wont eat! We are still trying to figure out what to do, so if you have any tips, please let me know. He is a very fussy eater anyway, but is flatly refusing to eat anything they offer him except bread and butter.

Glenn's Dad is recovering ok. He is getting a bit down, which is understandable, so we have all been trying to cheer him up by getting him involved in things.

Glenn is enjoying his long service leave. Especially the other day when all his teacher mates returned to work. It's going pretty fast though, only a couple of months left.

This is his new hair do.

He is going through a mid life crisis I think. The kids LOVE his rooster hair LOL, and yes, it is purple! Cant wait to scrap this one ;)

OK, time for a quick share

These were my projects for really just ribbons this month. Tried for a bit of a vintage feel on this one, something I rarely attempt. Really pleased with how they turned out. Love how funky this one is. Some ribbon flowers, with puffy daisy centres. And I used my Poppy Ink kit, VERY funky and bright. I am still waiting for my kit to arrive this month, it sure is taking it's time, but then again, it has been snowing etc in the States.
Ok, well going to love you and leave you. Dont forget to pop on over to Aussie Scrapjacked tomorrow and see who the new jack is. We will be having some birthday celebrations over there soon too, can you believe it has been almost a year? WOW!!!!!
Have a good one :)

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack!

And I have made a promise to myself to get back into blogging as much as possible, just because of the fact that it helps me remember things the kids have done.
Ok, so Christmas was a bit of a rollercoaster.

Glenn's Dad {my FIL} was rushed to hospital on Christmad Eve with Chest pain. Turns out he had had a MI and that he has quite a few blocked arteries. He had triple bypass surgery on Monday, and he is doing well. Will be off work for a while, but thats a good thing.

So we went to the hospital on Christmas morning, and then went to my Parents. Had a BBQ brunch and then a HUGE dinner. Was YUM!

The kids got masses of presents, Santa was very good to them :). Aodhan was REALLY into Santa this year, and that made it even more fun!
Aodhan and I then got heatstroke. We have had some VERY hot weather, and our evap cooler broke down the week before Christmas. Impossible to get it fixed at this time of the year. We have a refridgerated air con in our bedroom, so wehave spent most of the hot days playing in there. Poor little man, it was awful. But they are coming to fix the cooler on the 8th :)

New Years Eve was a quiet one this year. Did nothing, well, a bit of scrapping!

And that just about brings everything up to date.

I will share a couple of LO's I have done.

Havent really scrapped much the past few weeks, but now have some deadlines, so need to get cracking!
This one is my jack for this month. We decided to jack the extremely talented Kim Archer, and boy did she give us a LO to jack! Make sure you pop on over to Aussie scrapjacked and check it out!
