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.

Five, 5, V,

That's what my little baby turned on Friday.

She invited all of her cutzie friends to put on their favourite dress up clothes and come for a party on Friday afternoon.  It was a glorious day and a the sun shone for the entire afternoon.  Thank goodness because outside parties are so much better.

They decorated their own party bags, hunted for treasure, played pass the parcel, 'crocodile, crocodile', and plum pudding.

I was so pleased when Charlotte said she wanted a "pretty heart cake" - easy peasy!

And "fluffy pink cupcakes" - also easy peasy!

Charlotte was even allowed to break the rules and ride her new Scooter inside.

She's such a happy girl who loves nothing more than a story on the walk home from school and some good music to dance to.

Love you sweetie xxx

And then there were four...

Friday was Matt's turn to help out at convention.  We dropped him off at around midday then Reubs, Bella, Charlotte and I decided a trip to the park was in order.  It was a glorious day so we thought a BBQ was in order too.  We were totally unprepared for a BBQ but after a quick trip to the market we were set!

We had 'cardboard burgers' with sauce and bread! hmmm...

We jumped, swung, and climbed until we almost chucked!

We had running races and did cartwheels!

We threw stones and hunted for mini crabs.

We walked along the foreshore and took photos of interesting things.

Was a fun 3 hours we spent there but you can't tell from this photo!
 How similar to Reuben & Charlotte look in this one?

So this week has been busy and tiring.  Isaac has been attending his first youth convention.  I have been helping out with food and kitchen stuff and first aid and since Tuesday I have spent a grand total (so far) of 320 minutes driving between our house and the Stake Centre.  By the end of tomorrow that will rise to approximately 400!  But it is all worth it.  Isaac (and the rest of the youth as well) have had the BEST time.  Matthew Pawson and his UYC10 team have organised a FANTASTIC convention for these guys- and I've only seen some of it!  Tonight they are having a formal dinner and dance.  Here's some pics of Isaac and our four billets just before they left for the stake centre tonight.  Don't they look so handsome all dressed up?


The other day were strolling around in the city when the girls and I noticed a sign advertising free face painting in the upper level of Cat 'n' Fiddle Arcade.  So up we went.

Charlotte is "Pink swirls and purple love hearts..."

You guessed it;  Bella is a flower.

'Twas fun - and a timely distraction (how long does a chocolate high last for anyway???)
