Happy Monday morning everyone!!

Well, we had a great weekend! Saturday was Madie's b'day party. She's turning 7 on Friday, but we decided to have her party the weekend before her actual b'day, cause school finishes up for the term this friday, and I was worried all her friends would go away for the holidays, and she'd have no-one there!!
Here's a few pics....

The birthday girl....

Saturday night, we had the annual school Trivia Night, and the theme this year was HATS!! OMG, what an absolute riot!! The effort that some people went to for this was amazing, not to mention hilarious!! Fabulous Fundraiser for the school, I think Phil is going to be busy this week, counting the funds raised!! (He's the school treasurer, yeah I know, as if he doesn't already have enough on his plate, he put his hand up for the job before he really thought about exactly what was involved!! LOL!!)
Here we are in our hat garb, ready to go....

OK, on to some scrapping news....

So I get back on the computer this morning after having a bit of a 'weekend off', to find that I have been tagged again!! LOL, thanks Kris!! OK, so she wants me to tell her 6 things about myself, hmmm.....I'll probably bore you all to death, LOL!! Alrighty, here goes...

1. I love crocs!! You know those shoes? They are so great!! Everyone in my family has a pair, they are just so practical, and not to mention comfortable!! The first time I saw them I said, "OMG!! I am never wearing those fugly things!" But I admit it, I am a complete convert!! LOL

2. I hate housework! Just ask anyone that's been to my house...LOL! Only do it once it gets to the point where it's unbearable, or if someone is coming over, LOL!

3. I am currently on a misiion to loose some weight. Got down to a weight I was happy with this time last year, but wouldn't you know it, over winter (I'm in the southern hemisphere remember!) it all crept back on again!! AARRGGHHH, so easy to put back on, but such a PITA to get trid of!! So far I've lost about 2 1/2 kilo's which I thin is about 5 1/2 lbs since I started just under 2 weeks ago. Another 12lbs and I'll be a happy camper again! :)

4. I have a fear of moths! Not any other creep crawly's, just moth's for some reason! Spiders, ants, grasshoppers, beetles, anything else is fine, infact I am the one who catches and removes spiders from the house, but if there is a moth in the house, I run the other way!! They freak me out totally!!

5. I have never broken a bone anywhere in my body in my entire life. Came close a coule of times, and had a couple of dislocations and bad sparians, but never actually a break, touch wood!!

6. I would love to go on a cruise some day! We never actually got to have a HONEYMOON, bit hard with 3 kids (the twins weren't born then)so we went on a 'FAMILYMOON' instead! Spent a week down the south coast Phil, myself and the kids. Was a nice week away, but not really what you would call 'romantic'!! LOL!! I would love to one day, once the kids are older, go off on a cruise around the south Pacific or the Caribean just us....*sigh* one day!!

OK, now that I have bored you all to tears, you can wake up again!! WAKEY WAKEY!! LOL! Now I better go and tag 3 more people.....

Kristine has started up her own Yahoo group for blog freebies! FreeStuffies4DigiScrappers is open to designers and scrappers alike, and is sure to be lots of fun!!So head on over and sign up for some freebies!!

We had a great weekend, some scrapping news and something exciting is coming soon!!

Well, we had a great weekend!
Saturday I got a new computer!! Whoo hoo!! A friend of ours and my husband went off to the computer fair with the intention of getting me some more memory (no, not for my brain, although sometimes I wish that was possible!! lol!! )for the computer, and came back with a whole new tower!! Wowee! I have gone from 512MB of memeory to 2GB! Can't wait to get some more designing done, and see just how fast this thing can go now!!

Saturday night we went 'round to friends place, and had a great night just chatting and having a few, while the kids ( they have three, aswell as out five ) all played 'sing star' on Playstation and generally ran a muck!! Caitlin has a little bit of a crush on thier son, and it is so cute watching them play together! Madie is very posessive kinda personality, and Caitlin gets all cranky that she keeps trying to get Brandodn all to herself!! It's so funny to watch!! I don't remember this kind of thing with 'boys' until I was way older!! LOL!! Guess they start earlier with everything these days though!

On to some scrapping news....

Poor Caity, a sale, and some scrapping news.

Do you like my new look blog? I decided it was time for a bit of a face lift. The Banner is from Laura Deacitis's 'Bloggie Banners' (created by Nikki Beaudreau)from Sweet Shop design. Isn't it gorgeous?? Well, I think it is!! LOL!

Poor Caity. So this is how is started. Yesterday morning, I'm sitting here at my computer, after just spending the last hour and a half laughing myself silly (it was supposed to be a 'staff meeting for the DSO designers', but what hope is there of anything satying serious, when you have Kim and Kristine there?...LOL) when Caitlin comes out to me and says "Muuuuuum, (can you hear the whine there?) I just bumped my head." Now first let me say this, for some reason, my kids think that they need to tell me every single, little, tiny, incy, insignificant thing that happens to them all ( and let me remind you, that with 5 of them, it can sometimes seem never ending). So I say, "It'll be OK, just give it a rub" and proceed to give the back area of her head to which she was pointing, a rather vigourus rub. She heads off back down the hall, looking rather deflated at my lack of enthusiam, when all of a sudden I hear this blood curdly scream. "OMG, who's done what now" I shout. Caitlin appears in the doorway again, this time with blood all over her hand. "Look what's coming out of my heeeeead!!" It appears that indeed, she has bumped her head, and infact it probably was a 'real' bump this time. Great. So now I have guilt about the fact that I just dismissed her so easily, when she is trying to tell me she is hurt! It turns out that it is rather a small cut in her head, when she smacked it on the corner of her desk as she was trying to make her bed, but heads bleed alot and it freaked her out a little, just a little!
Lessons learnt from this little episode:
1. Perhaps pay a little more attention when your kids are trying to tell you something.
2. Buy soft corner protector thingy's for the corner of the desk.

Just in case you are wondering, she is fine this morning, and very proudly tells/ shows anyone she can about 'spliting her head open' LOL

On to some scrapping news...
