{Personalised baby birth announcements & thank you cards}

I would just like to share with you a business that my SIL has started on Ebay. Feel free to pass this link onto your friends as well. Kristal also designs birthday party invitations and thank yous, wedding thankyou's, engagement invites and thank you's and pretty much anything else thatyou can think of. All of her cards are designed to print onto the standard10x15cm photo paper or they can be printed onto card stock if your printerallows for this. You can print at snapfish for 15cents a print or your local photo lab if it is cheaper. Kristal made the girls birthday invitations this year for me and everyone that saw them thought they were great. It beats writing out 35 invites at a time :o) If you are interested in having a card design personalised for you or know of anyone who would find this service useful please let them/me know. You can leave a coment here and I can forward it onto Kristal or you can contact her through ebay.

{Sam's Christening Night}

Last night Sam was christened during mass, it was a really lovely night, Sam had a lovely time he slept the whole way through it :o) Being at night the photos are not the best which is a shame. I am going to dress him up again and get a photo of him in the family christening gown.
Joshua our nephew and my bestfriend Kristy were the godparents, My Aunty Julie and cousin Adam came up from Dubbo for the night which was really great to spend time with them.

This morning Mia woke up and asked me if the easter bunny had been and left a MAP....... I forgot all about the map I made her last year, so she was a bit dissapointed but I told her the easter bunny couldn't hide easter eggs this year as the mice would have eaten them I think she was pretty happy with that but still sat there with a sad look on her face :o( Until Aunty Julie said the easter bunny left some eggs somewhere else. Mia was pretty happy with her box of goodies from Easter Bunny Aunty Julie. I didn't take any photos :o(

Anyway have a lovely easter sunday everyone :o)

{Cross Country & Chocolate Mess}

Mia had her first cross country today, the kids were all so excited. It was such a long course too for little kids it would have had to of been a kilometre at least.... Mia kept stopping and looking about I think she needed a drink. She enjoyed herself heaps though.
Yesterday I made some chocolate cupcakes for playgroup today and guess who had lots of fun with the beaters!!! I couldn't help but get a few photos of her :o)

Some photos and a few LO's

Not much happening around here atm, Sam is getting christened on Easter Saturday night so that will be nice. I am going to make his christening cake, there are so many gorgeous ideas on the internet I just hope it turns out how I want it too.
I have been having fun making collages in Picasa as you can see. I have been trying the the last 7 weeks to get a nice photo of the kids together for their twinkle toes frame and do you think I could so I ended up putting together this collage for the frame Nichole loved it and I can't wait to see the finished result.

I just love overalls and Sam looked so gorgeous in these on Saturday I just had to take a photo.
Sonia your quilt makes for a gorgeous background too :o)

These are a few LO's that I did for the FA newsletter the first 2 are using the monthly sketch and the other one was for the newsletter feature that I sort of didn't get finished but we will share anyway as it is finished now :o)

The kids are going great, Mia is loving school, she is counting down the days until her birthday. So is Brie they have been picking out their cakes Brie has gone from Bob the Builder to spiderman and I think Mia has decided on the cake that you can hit with the hammer.
Brie is enjoying being at home with me and Sam which is good that she doesn't miss Mia too much I am sure Brie will love the holidays so she has her sister home with her.
Sam is going great, starting to settle right in now and just being a good little baby. It was really cold last night so I put winter pj's on him and today he really wasn't sleeping well I think I might of had him just a bit too hot cause he hadn't slept all morning and now I just have him in a summer romper and he is asleep. It has warmed up this arvo though.
Well I best go and make some cakes for playgroup tomorrow.
Amie xx
