August so far, in pictures...

Was just looking over my pics from the last couple of weeks (I am taking many more now that I'm *home*, yay!). And I thought I would get some up here, just 'in review' kinda thing...

Most are from around the house, playing and spending time together...

Jaidyn, up a tree in the backyard... he loves it.

And striking a pose...

Eli having a ball at the playground...

Proud Mummy moment - Eli writing his name - at only 3!!

Making playdough cakes and blowing out the candles...

Lani NOT going to bed! Cheeky (but beautiful) girl...

Eli being cute...
And my time...

Washing and folding...

Dishes (and lots of them at times!)...

Baking some gorgeous black and white cupcakes for a special Ladies Pamper Night at church... and spending time with my friend Kerryanne at said Pamper Night (except thre's no more photos coz my battery died right at the start of the evening!)

And a spot of sewing (I found my patterns and some fabrics!)...

I made this journal cover from Janelle Wind's Thelma's Day Out pattern. Its for a friend for her birthday this weekend. I really like how it turned out, just don't look too closely! I'm going to make a few of these - they will make lovely gifts. I was thinking I might even try and modify one to fit my Bible, what a pretty cover that would be.




Anyway, that's about it. This post has taken me AGES to get right! (blogger is not liking uploading photos for me at the moment...ggrrrrr...)
We have our Brisbane Show holiday today. Greg's currently out playing golf, the kids are happily playing outside (for a few moments at a time between yelling at each other) and we're off to a friends for a BBQ lunch soon, so I better get out of my PJs and get organised!
Hope you're having a lovely day...

5 things I'm thankful for today:
1. A day off to spend with family (even if they are currently driving me nuts)
2. That I got my sewing finished, yay!
3. Coffee (Eli thought it good to wake up at 5am, so I'm tired already!)
4. Times Tables on CD
5. The Word of God - refreshing and renewing each day.

Ohh I love that denim one! I am actually looking for a bible bag to transport my gorgeous ink bible in but I haven't liked any of the patterns I've seen so far.
