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!

Hi there

Happy New Year to you all. Wishing your father in law all the best as he recovers from his recent surgery. So glad he got treatment quickly. Must have been a very worrying time over Christmas for you all.

Loving your new layouts, especially the one for Aussie Scrapjacked showing so many photos of Aodhan.

Have a great week end coming, hopefully the weather won't be so hot for you.

Take care, love from Susan (smiles1965) at Scrapboxx.

Hi Dee,
Sorry to hear about your FIL. I hope he is much better now and taking things easy.
Bugga about your AC :0(
That would suck big time in this heat! Then trying to keep the kids inside...they get housebound.
I hope things are better now.
Love your ICU LO :0)
Very cute.
Take care
