and missy Lilliana turns ten!

 Yep, that's right TEN!!!  Oh dear.

Not quite sure where my little Bambino went.  She just kinda morphed into a gorgeous grown up girl.  She is so GORGEOUS and has no idea at all.  Which I love.  Don't get me wrong, she loves clothes and bags and shoes (even stealing mine, our shoe sizes are almost the same!)  But she isn't really aware of how stunning she is.  As a baby everyone would stop me and comment on how beautiful she is - they still do.

She seems to have inherited very European looks, both from my side (Italian) and Justins (Spanish).  I would love to have her olive skin.  We call her our brown berry :)

She is such a delight.  Softly spoken, creative and has a fiery side that no one ever expects (just quietly I am sure that is from me!). She knows her mind.  I love that.  I love her.


PS - we had ANOTHER trip to the emergency ward of John Hunter Hospital yesterday with Jere and another kidney stone .... eeeekkkk this one passed OUT.  OUCHIE!!!

Back from a break

And hasn't it been a busy one?  Christmas, New Years, Aussie Day, Back to school.  It makes me tired just thinking about it all.

Throw in my Birthday, Ruby's birthday, friends over, changing of rooms, painting, sorting throwing.  No wonder I havn't have the chance to sit and blog.  I was also having MAJOR perfectionist issues with the look of my blog (LOL) everytime I opened it I saw the old photo's of the kids, a background that needed changing and I just couldn't be bothered.  So I didn't.

But FINALLY I got my butt in gear and made some changes, still need to do more, but it is much better.

I am totally excited to say that I am OFFICIALLY part of the Scraptherapy DT.  The team is fabbo, and I am so happy to be a part.  So head over and check it out, there are some wonderful challenges this month and a cybercrop coming up too.

I did this layout for the January Sketch Challenge at Scraptherapy I LOVE this photo of Livinia on her first day of big school last year, and it was nice to finally scrap it, with some yummy Sassafrass Lass. 

And I can't end this post without saying a huge happy birthday to my Boy, Jere who turned 13.  Oh dear!!!!  We bought him a guitar for his birthday, and were so thankful that my Dad is an AWESOME guitarist and knew exactly what to buy him.  Dad is also teaching Jere for the first 12 months and has promsed that he will buy him his first electric guitar if he practises hard this year.  YAY for great Poppy's!!!!

Here is my BOY  TEENAGER .... so excited with his gift.  I grew up with a dad who is a guitarist and a brother, and I gotta say the sound of someone tuning their guitar still makes me want to rock in the corner :)  But I am looking forward to Jere learning his instrument and making some pretty cool music with his Poppa and Uncle Kris.

Till next time...
