Our hectic life

Life is simply crazy at this time of year, isn't it!

Here's some of what's been keeping us busy.......

Kate modelled for the life drawing class at the art gallery - a real test of her ability to keep still!  She held the final pose for nearly an hour....ouch!  It was so interesting to watch the artworks unfold - people are so talented.

Bethie earned her yellow belt in karate....she takes it all very seriously - this is definitely a girl with black belt in her sights......!

Mimi had her kindy cute!  She insisted on going in full uniform....a shock to the system to see my little baby ready for big school.....

The last weekend of November (yes, that horrible blustery stinking hot one) we met up with my side of the family at Nambucca, which is kind of a halfway point for us, for a pre-Xmas Xmas.  Camping, pressies, food, beach....what more could one want?  Slightly more bearable temps would have been nicer, but in typical Budden tradition, fun was had by young and old.......

.....boogie boarding at the lovely sheltered Shelly Beach.....

This is my Granny....we were delighted to have her along too. Although not very mobile, and with an uncooperative hearing aid, she loved being surrounded by the grandkids and feeling the sand between her toes for the first time in 20 years! Gran turns 95 this January, pretty amazing huh.

The girls with their cousins Amarah and Jake.....played happily together all weekend!

Not much happening at the scrap desk, apart from my online class and some designing I'm doing for Totally Addicted to Sketch this month.  Hope to do some more pages soon.........but I can see life is going to get in the way!

Ballet concert rehearsals and performances will be happening almost every day this week, a Xmas get together with my Thai Cooking group on Sunday, and going to work in between......and I still haven't even got to the movies yet to see New Moon!


  1. I am so proud of my gorgeous granddaughters, they are all growing up so beautifully. Thanks for sharing the photos.

    The Nambucca weekend was wonderful even though the heat nearly killed us! It was a great early Christmas!The weatherman says it has been the hottest November on record.

  2. Pen, Amie said to tell you New Moon is way better than Twilight and Jacob is hot and has a great six pack, but he is her's and she is not sharing. SORRY!

  3. The Budden Chrissy trip looked so lovely Pen. Sorry, we pseudo-budden's couldn't make it!! Granny looks gorgeous!! Mia looks totally gorg in her uniform... just wait tho, in a few years time she'll be bucking the system and trying to do anything to get out of wearing it (that's if she takes after me!!). And I'm totally freaked out by Beth - she looks so tough in her karate uniform!!



Thanks for leaving some love! Penny x
