Mmmmm... yum! Warm cookies fresh out of the oven... so good! Madi loved it!
Gotta run... I've got about a million things to do around the house before I do the school/kindy run! Well ok... not a million things... but there's still lots to do... so until next time have a great weekend and take care!

And Riley proudly gave me these...
Paul then made me our traditional pancake breakfast... YUM! Then Mum & Dad came to visit for the day. We remembered to snap a couple of pics....here's Mum and I...
Hope you're all gearing up for a great weekend! Looks like gorgeous weather here... crossing my fingers it stays that way. Take care!
(I did use the random generator thingy to choose the winner... just couldn't work out how to put a picture of it on here to show you... having a blonde moment! :P)
Congrats Lisa! Just shoot through an e-mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can organise the parcel to be sent out to you!
A huge thankyou to everyone who left comments to go into the draw. I was blown away by the response!! It was great to hear from you all!

To celebrate my blog's birthday... or blogiversary (? hee hee hee) I thought I'd do a little giveaway...
I've been a little slack on updating over the last couple of weeks... and I have to confess that I've go no scrapping to share... sorry! I've been caught up doing other things lately and my scrapping has fallen by the way side....
I've also been knitting! I started this blanket for Riley last winter and never got it finished (surprise surprise... LOL).
Mum worked on one for Ayden (yes she finished knitting it last year of course!) which I just sewed together a couple of weeks ago so I thought I'd better get a move on to get Riley's done... especially since he keeps asking me for it!! LOL... It's taking up a lot of my time lately...I'm not a super fast knitter like my Mum!
On Monday we decided to take the kids up to O'Reilly's to do their Tree Top Walk. Paul had heard about it and had been wanting to do it for ages... so we jumped into the car and went for a drive. It took a while to get there with long winding roads... and when we got there we couldn't believe how busy it was!!! (We shouldn't have been surprised though knowing it was a public holiday.) It was also quite chilly so I was glad I'd grabbed some jumpers before we left home. (Paul didn't think he'd need one... ha ha ha)It was a beautiful area and the kids had a ball exploring the walking tracks... and the tree top walk was fun... and a little scary being so high on the suspension walkways! LOL... We've decided we need to make more time to do this sort of thing.. we don't do it enough!
This gorgeous charm necklace arrived in my letterbox recently too...I LOVE IT!! I was lucky enough to win it over on Chanel's blog and I've been wearing it everywhere! It's from her beautiful jewellery range at Enjoy Jewellery. Go and check out her site... she's got some gorgeous pieces there!
And it finally happened....I got hooked on Twilight!!!Paul brought home the DVD the other night knowing I wanted to see it. I hadn't had time to read the books up until now and was wondering what all the fuss was about... but once I saw the movie that was it! I went out and bought all the books the next day and now I'm reading every chance I get! LOL... I knew it would eventually happen.... :)
Well I think that just about covers everything.....it's turned into a mammoth post! Hope you've all got a lovely Mother's Day weekend planned. My Mum and Dad will be spending the day here so I'm really looking forward to it.
