About Me

My photo
Where do I begin? I guess At the beginning! I live in beautiful Tasmania, Australia with my wonderful hubby, Matthew and our four angels (part time devils) Isaac, Reuben, Isabella, and Charlotte. Currently I'm a stay-at-home mum and I absolutely love that. Nothing else compares. I'm also studying the Master of Teaching part-time and I'm serving as the relief society president of our ward. I love being outside, especially in summer. I love big windows & lots of light. I love swimming, running and mowing the lawn! my favourite vegetable is carrots (or potatoes if mum's baked them) and I love fresh fruit salad. My most favourite thing to do is spend time with my precious family.

Giselle Charli Charlotte Sayers

Charlotte was sooooo excited to receive a beautiful card in the post sent all the way from the UK by her sweet little friend Leilani Challis (It actually arrived on her birthday Hannah - thanks so much xx) It's the one with the little swinging girl. It's so gorgeous, all of the parts move and she actually swings!!

Charlotte had a birthday this week. She's 4 now! Charlotte loves to play 'make believe'. When I over hear her saying something along the lines of " ok Bella I'm her and you're her, and mum is the wicked witch" it reminds me of my own childhood playing similar games with Bridey. Can you remember pretending to be Daisy from the Dukes of Hazard Bride?? I was married to Bo and you got Luke!! anyway...
Not long ago Charlotte declared "I'm Charli now mum, not just sometimes but ALL the time, and it's going to be my REAL name ok?"
Then... last week we borrowed the movie 'Enchanted' and Charlotte has since declared "I'm Giselle now mum ok, my first name is Giselle, or princess Giselle, my second name is Charli and Charlotte is my last name ok mum, so you remember ok mum".

This announcement came the day before her birthday. So who was up til 2am making a "princess Giselle" dress (reinforcing her neurosis)?? yep me, the one with the great big "sucker" written across her forehead! Well it paid off because she LOVES it and I got some cute shots with my new camera I don't know how to use!

Happy Birthday Giselle Charli Charlotte Sayers, I love you xxx
The best thing about making birthday cake is licking the beaters, right?
